Not sure how you can say this, considering that there is a thread here discussing how people cannot tell the difference between 4K and 8K on any TV set of any size that fits in an average home. And I highly doubt that upscaling SD or lower quality images up to 8K is going to make them look noticeably better than 4K. I'm all for technology advancements but not when they drop a technology advancement that actually had real content out there that could use it while trying to sell us on an "technology advancement" that has 0 content, other than via upscaling. At least, 4K has a modest amount of native 4K content available. 8K has 0 native content and I expect will have 0 native content for a long time. Does anyone expect Broadcasters and other content providers to start broadcasting in 8K when most of them have barely started taking advantage of 4K?Not sure, but I assume you are referring to static images that can burn into the screen? If this is your point, then please remember we had the same issue with plasma and CRT TVs.
Emissive display technology is more susceptible to leaving phosphor retention and burn in when the same static image is left on the screen for 2 hrs per day and the same content is repeated daily
Edge-lit or backlit displays are more resistant to displaying static images for longer period before they show burn-in.
Also wanted you to know that all 8K TVs deliver a better picture with any content, low resolution cable, 4K HD streaming and BDs than ANY 4K TV image quality can deliver. Samsung, Sony and LG put the best video processors and best panels exclusively for the premium 8K TVs.
Let's be thankful for technology advancements.
I think that's a huge mistake on their part. It completely misses the key value of the tech imo. 65" is far too small for it to matter or for anyone to pay a premium for.Later this year, at the launch LG will only offer the 65" RX series rollable OLED TV and they will be very expensive. Great technology, but it needs time to mature for prices to come down and larger sizes become a reality.
That's true. I can't change LG's product catalog with the power of my mind. My disappointment won't change anything, except my interest in upgrading.I think you seriously overestimate the number of people who care about hiding their TVs. Regardless, they are priced as luxury goods this year and your disappointment in that is not going to change the available number that LG can produce of this small market segment this year.
Someone I know has an NX5. They are excellent, especially for a projector in that price range. It won't scratch this particular itch though.You should consider JVC's NX5 for the basement theater upgrade with Panasonic's UB820. The native 4K HDR image is stunning and nothing like this was ever possible before these two 4K HDR devices that were made in video heaven were available.
