In an era that 4k sources are not even considered main stream yet, the best feature of 8k TV is to drive down further the prices of 4k tv😀

ya lo buy antique.
Hi @mybalckboots

Have you bought? Is it still 3699 with 200 voucher?
At this time, I thought the price is good for the given specs.
For 8K, we can always wait till 2-3 years later to change. No need to chase after latest TV reso

I was comparing LG 82UN8100 vs Samsung 82TU8200 given the same size and similar price point.

Specs: LG wins (HDMI 2.1, Dolby Vision and Atmos, IPS)
Design: Samsung wins with thin bezels

After watching a few shows there (making both TVs displaying standard colours), I still think LG is easy on the eyes. Somehow I feel Samsung for this model, images too sharp to look “real”, and make me “headache” after watching it for some time.

Correct me if I’m wrong
Soft screen is VA
Hard screen is IPS
Yah?

LG 82 is hard when you pressed on it
Samsung 82 is soft and has the ripple effects when your run your fingers across the screen
