    If we look back, history tells us that anyone saying "x is enough" is wrong - memory, network, etc. But then, realistically, if you sit at a fixed distance from your screen, and your screen size remains optimized for your viewing experience - and here we will have physical biology take precedent over technology - then there is a point where additional pixelization makes absolutely no difference whatsoever. In many cases, this is already true. You don't really get more information, just tinier bits of it. So this doesn't look like anything but the giant ball of consumerism rolling and rolling.

    I think screens may be a lot bigger than they are currently, especially along with changes to screen ratio. Mid-peripheral vision is up to 60 degrees in each side, so it is around 120 degrees combined. Ever been on presentation displayed by projector? Image is usually a lot bigger than on typical TV, but you may sit quite closely like 2 to 3 meters and you can still see everything.

    Sure thing. But if your view plane doesn't change, extra pixels are meaningless.

    For the love of god, don’t buy an 8K TV
    Despite the hype and bluster, the science says your mortal eyes can barely tell the difference

    I think the most important part of article above is:
    I think that 8K is not worth to replace already owned 4K TVs. But people may want to buy to replace old Full HD TV or buy TV to install in new place. If somebody have enough money for 80 inches, good 8K TV with excellent dynamic range capabilities then it isn't that stupid choice.

    LOL, this is all so silly. I still own an old-skool CRT TV and it has better picture quality than a lot of 4K and Full HD TV's. No matter if the picture quality is in SD or HD.

    And now they are talking about 8K TV's while most channels aren't even being broadcasted in 4K. In Holland a lot of channels are still in SD quality, so they all look like crap on flatscreens. Is this what we call progress?

    Progress is whatever makes money for the big guys. This hasn't changed since the Roman Empire and before.

    If there's one good thing about this progress, it's that by the time 8K TV becomes mainstream, 4K TV will become even cheaper.

    TVs are not only for television. You can buy 8K smart TV, set-top box, gaming console or connect laptop and stream movies from Netflix or other streaming service or blue-ray or file on a laptop.

    I think 8K is meant for premium products at least for now. Some people are rich enough to buy really large screen. Remember that also some companies buy TV to install them in meeting room to display various things and I bet it isn't big amount of money for a lot companies to buy such a TV. Not everything on the marker is for average Joe, because there are people richer and poorer than average Joe.

    Yes that's true, but it really bothers me that it's 2020, and we still don't have all TV channels in full HD, let alone 4K. I'm not happy at all with the progress that we have made when it comes to digital TV and video. In fact, I was checking out JustWatch and even a lot of movies are still being streamed in SD, I wonder what's up with that.
