If Sony's 4K screen isn't crazy enough, there's always Sharp

Do you have all the money in the world? You still probably can't quite afford Sharp's 85-Inch 8K screen, a monster of a device that offers more image detail than a 33 mega pixel photo.... read more

Hey I take offence to that, I have a cousin called Corrie and she wouldn't look good being smashed through a windscreen let alone on a tv screen.

Oh blah blah blah - who here can tell the difference between 4k and 8k ?

Seriously, its like a techno-penis comparing competition.

I think everyone can easily see the difference between 576, 720 and 1080, the difference between 2160 (4K) and 4320 (8K) will be just as easy and satisfying to most people without cataracts. The prices will be just as affordable a year or two in as current tech too, don't worry about that. Tech evolves allllll the time.

Vive la revolution! (very slowly over the next 5 years) :wink:

^ Agree. I think 4K will be amazing and totally worth it at least for big-screen TVs of 50-60 inches and above. 8K may require screen sizes of 80+ inches to make a clearly noticeable difference. But it's something that you have to see and verify for yourself IRL, with native resolution UHD content, before giving the verdict.

Some of these early models are ridiculously expensive though. Like the newly introduced extra large Westingouse 110 inch model, which carries a price tag of $300 000 dollars :?

Its not quite the same with 4K/8K. For the human eye to detect any difference in the pictures at standard viewing distance, the screen have to be very large (60"+). So anyone with a 40" TV wouldn't be able to see any noticeable difference.
It'll be years before 4K/8K reaches the same level as 1080p.

Some crazy amount though, Just when the consoles start to catch up they throw in a brand new resolution or two, i've always had a slight issue with HD, say for example i've got a 50 inch tv that runs 1080p, i don't really but lets just say i do, Currently i'm using a 22 inch monitor for my pc gaming and console gaming in my room, it does 1080p but its real native resolution is 1050 since its a 16:10 screen. Testing out the actual size of 1080p led me to believe a 24 inch 16:9 screen would be the native size of 1080p (feel free to correct me) so putting that type of display into a tv about twice the size is bound to blur up the visuals somewhat, these UHD tv's are insane but i feel its something we really were missing in the tv market, instead of having all your pixels upscaled on a larger screen you can just get more to fill in the space, i love it and can't wait to see it with my own eyes personally.

I already have a massive one and my TV is 50" too, boom tish.

TV's are cheap as chips, I am a bit more of a brand snob, but you can get a 50" LG for £500, 4K and 8K TV's will be just as cheap in their product lifecycle timeframe and the sizes of TV's have slowly got larger as the years have gone by at the same time as the prices have tumbled.

You can buy a 56" Toshiba 4K TV today for £6,999 from John Lewis (in stock) and JL are not cheap, too much now but not horrendously so, but in a year it will be £4,000 and tumble tumble just like HD, Full HD and 3D have done before it. They will be £2,000 in a couple of years, the same kind of price curve as previous new tech.

Keep calm and embrace the future.
