Check out this very cool video featuring LG's 88" 8K OLED 10bit HDMI 2.1 TV at IFA, Berlin, Germany. Soon to be showcased at CEDIA in Denver CO.


I'm expecting our store demo unit shortly!

Wait, wait...slow down there, Mr. Zohn.
I'm still trying to catch up to owning one of your Panny 9000's
...plus a 4K short-throw projector
...and a top-notch screen
...and a 5.1 speaker system
...and...and...well, you get the picture.:)

Doesn’t it sound like a sci-fi/horror plot?

“Unsuspecting first adopters rush to buy the latest and greatest 8K TVs. Little do they know it’s too sharp and too realistic. Half the world wakes up blind the next day! Meanwhile bands of rogue HDTVs roam the street devouring them! ...

Sad and sorry to say the last 3D TVs were back in 2016 and are not likely to ever be available in any future TVs. Most projectors support 3D.

8K TVs are not about the increased resolution, but what Sony and LG have done on all of the new 8K TVs is reserve them for the larger screen sizes, better video processing performance and best panels. So like it or not, if you want the best picture quality and or an 85" + screen size it's an 8K TV.

Today is a really big day at Value Electronics. Really big has two meanings, 1st is the advancements in display technology and 2nd is the huge screen size of LG's new 88" 8K OLED TV.

We are the first retailer in America to have this TV on display and we've also shipped all of our clients orders. Hope to see many HTF members and readers stop by our showroom to see this stunning 8K OLED TV on display in our showroom!

Here's the latest .pdf spec sheet and here's the owner's manual.

Here's a few pics of the delivery this morning. More pics to come along with my remarks on the performance of this new TV and how it compares against Sony's 8K Z9G, Samsungs 8K Q900R and Sony's 4K 77" A9G.

I found this comparison of a 4K OLED and an 8K Samsung QLF interesting. His query at the end of the video does make one wonder what an 8K OLED would look like compared to a 4K from the same viewing distance.

My take on the video is that it proves emissive display technology delivers a superior image quality when compared to a LCD TV. If he would have used the same brand with a high-end 4K and 8K we would then know how the image of an 8K TV compares to a 4K TV.
