    Pay all that money and still you will have almost no 8K content to watch.

    Complete waste of money, of course the industry has nothing else to sell other than resolution even though much of the content industry still hasn't even moved to 4K

    Also LOL at buying an 8K 60Hz display to play 1440p 30FPS games on the PS5 if thats the target Sony is aiming for with their big splash Unreal trailer.

    Too expensive - i agree.
    Not necessary? I do not agree. In times when your smartphone has FHD resolution we still having computer screens with 4x less pixel density as a default. Increasing it 2 or 4 times should be natural.
    Up scaling is a really good thing, helps reduce the performance impact and improving quality to the content that cannot be rendered natively.

    Having that said I'm using 40" 4k where the resolution is to small because you are still able to see pixels when close and default font size is sometimes hard to read.
    I would be happier if that was 43" 8k scaled 200%.

    Also it would be great to see more screens that re 4k,5k,6k,8k,10k that can work as monitor. As there a significant difference in how far you see TV and Monitor.

    Well said DevDrake. Yep, it's a tad expensive, but without the advances in TV tech we won't have it filter down to the more affordable TVs in a few years. Not so long ago HDR was costly, now it's standard.

    8K is the future, best get ready for it

    Beautiful screen. And no content to consume with such quality.

    Why pay through the nose for an 8K TV now? By the time there is enough 8K content available to make an 8K TV worthwhile, likely several years away, the prices of the TVs will have dropped substantially.

    I completely agree. I haven't even got a 4k tv yet as I don't feel enough content exists. Sky still charge extra for HD.

    75 inches at 8k is a higher pixel density than a 27" 1440p monitor, even 4k loses its sharpness very quickly in comparison, I have always wondered why they even bothered with 4k to begin with, I hope content creators just skip it and head straight for 8k in all honesty.

    When there is 8k content, people will just complain that no-one has an 8k screen anyway
