      what ak tv you say xD

    2. Jvepps

      Who gives a shit about viewing angle on a pc monitor. Is the whole family sitting around your monitor for movie night ?

    3. Shill for Science

      this is what happens when you take technical specifications necessary for _professional_ application, and turn it into a consumer buzzword.

    4. Matt Sezer

      If you need a microscope to see the difference, is there really a point? 4K is barely noticible over 1080p, and many people won't even notice that.

    5. Deez Nutz

      I am still rocking 1080p and have zero interest in upgrading anytime soon.

    6. AC3

      Can someone explain to me WHY we need 8k tech? How detailed do I need to see the pores and beards on people's faces?

    7. Billblom

      If the only way you can tell the screen is 8k is to use a Microscope, you do not need 8k

    8. Marwan Ghoneim

      8K is same as 720p tv because your eyes only see 144p per inch

    9. JesterHell999

      Just wait until Pulseway has Neuralink integration, then you will be able to control your employees directly.

      This blows minds one at a time please

    12. Chris

      ' Thats one reason everyone is buying IPS PC monitors instead of fast TN' lol what? How utterly uninformed can you get. Who is buying IPS monitors exactly? Because im pretty sure most gamers buy the fast TN panels.

    13. Martin D A

      Saying LG patented IPS technology is like saying Kia invented the car. Please less bullshit.

    14. KazoWAR

      100% contrast modulation or bust

    15. Franck Bosch

      It looks like to were asleep when Vincent released the following video back in September 2019

    16. jigga jaw

      The the 4k manufacturers are. Cause it's really what... 3.8k? So now what do we get with 8k... 7.6k?

    17. Roxor128

      They call 7680 wide "8k". OF COURSE they're lying!

    18. peter nugent

      Informative, but this guy still sounds annoyingly like Kermit the Frog! His voice is grating.


      I am wondering if Linus recorded all those pulseway's shootouts in a row hahahaha imagine Linus finishing the first & start thinking in the next staff humiliation hahahaha

    20. Okrom

      Leo techmaker?

    21. World Peace

      4K TV on 2013 = 15 grand 4K TV on 2020 = $400 8K TV on 2020 = 15 grand Conclusion : I'll buy a 8K TV on 2027

    22. karehaqt

      I wonder how many idiots are buying 8K TVs.

    23. rjc0234

      ah its the "Full HD", "HD ready", "720p HD" debacle all over again

    24. marshall jacobs

      1:50 so wait... if samsung wanted to, they could release a 24 hz 8k tv and it would be acceptable??

    25. Gr3nadgr3gory

      It's not like we could tell anyways.

    26. Flyboy

      I'm just glad I don't watch TV. I can't be doing with all this nonsense about resolution, brightness, viewing angles, etc. There's so many variables that contribute to a good image on TV, there's no point in striving for absolute perfection just to watch the garbage that's on nowadays.

    27. Simple Tech

      I think real 8k is a lie. I don't believe it exist just yet. At least the technology hasn't been perfected yet.

    28. Logic Bender

      screw 8k tbh, the industry hasn't even gotten decent with 4k let alone 8k

    29. Rob

      Pulseway is a massive ripoff. Billing per endpoint for RMM software is a tired money grab. It is the opposite of useful for small IT businesses or contractors.

    30. Younes Layachi

      Great vid

    31. score guy

      1080p is better than nothing

    32. Groug

      "socks and scandals". LOL. Good one.

    33. Arsal Asher

      Time to grab some popcorn 😁

    34. Darkcloud1983

      Also being that i think about this sony is not apart of this association. The only company of the 3 that makes 8k content and the only company that can say lens to living room. Not to mention they are also using their HDC 8300 8k camera to film the Olympic. So if the content creator is not apart of Samsung’s created 8k branding its very odd that people are still trying to defend samsung. Remember sony also has the new 8k Venice camera that James Cameron is using to make the new avatar. As usual tho this channel doesn’t mention this.


      We have real 8k on mars already. Elon isnt welcome here.

    36. Eddie O'Connor

      Its a moot point anyway. We humans cannot "see" in 8K....its been proven that we "max out"? can sharpen a picture...and tweak colrs and shading, but we can't SEE in 4K....much less 8K!....its all just marketing ploys and buzz-work techno-sepak to get you to spend money! Case & Point: So be smart....don't blow your money on 8K TV' a decent hi-def 1080p...and keep your hard earned cash!

    37. D3rp

      Me with my 11 year old 720p plasma TV there's no difference in 720p shows on 8k

    38. rowen898

      Sadly if you bought a tv in the last 5 years. You bought a real fake 4-8k tv.

    39. Don Bruno Richard Martínez Olazábal Viavicencios

      Dude, thanks for the intel. I’m still in the market for a new Family Room T.V. For 2020. So I suppose the questions are: 1. L.G. v. Samsung, who is bullshitting who. Which 8K is TRULY 8K AND ready for prime time. 2. OLED v. QLED Has QLED reached parity with True Blacks? Thanks Jaime‼️‼️ As always, you rock‼️ Much L♥️VE to You and the Whole of Team Linus Media Group‼️‼️‼️♥️♥️♥️✊🏼✊🏼✊🏼🥃🥃🥃

    40. doro626

      6:54 He did that too smooth. Strip club reflex action?

    41. MaxCarponera

      marketing-driven engineering

    42. Bantallar

      Just seeing the background makes me want to go to Vegas... :-/

    43. Uzair Ahmad

      CES coverage by LTT this year was really dissappointing

    44. Nissim Trifonov

      So basically 8k has two target audiences: simpletons and those who watch tv through a microscope

    45. Rice Cooker

      8k content does not exist, this video is irrelevant

    46. meth yl

      I don't trust those them self own certification . Well the success fully did it 🤣

    47. TheGoreforce

      I remember 768 monitors.

    48. snekjuice

      tl;dr Samsung is overrated bullshit and LG deserves more attention

    49. tHeWasTeDYouTh

      this is what happens when European and American companies abandoned hardware and now everything is made and designed in Asia consumers get robbed left and right but in Asia people don't mind because unity/harmony mentality

    50. Bill Frost

      You had me at “contrast modulation”!

    51. Natan Skorput

      Hell, all TV manufacturers have been lying to us about 4K, because the retail stores most of the times only show the vertical resolution and not the horizontal. REAL 4k is not 3840x2160, REAL 4k is 4096x2160!

    52. YonkersRacer21

      Hey, I stayed at the Venetian in Las Vegas, that’s the background right!? 👍🏻👍🏻

    53. Mycha i Miodek

      this video is not 8K certified, that's for sure

    54. 清楚Seiso

      1:26 is when he gets to the point

    55. Russell Smith

      So, if the human eye cannot even see full 4K resolution at normal viewing distances (Note that LG needed a microscope right at the display.), of what possible use is an 8k display?

    56. Brian Egendorf

      Advertising that trashes competitors for problems doesn't tend to keep up with when their competitor fixes it. Comcast and Verizon trash each other for issues that lasted for maybe 90 days, as much as two years and five years after the issue has long been resolved.

    57. OttersGonnaOtt

      Ah, yes. Good on LG for correctly labeling their new TVs as Real Wasted Pixels. They need to add Real Hard To Drive too though.

    58. Siam

      Samsung sneakily names their Evo SSDs mlc gen 3 or something when it is actually tlc which is inferior and dies quicker. Hardly anyone calls them out on their BS

    59. Robert Lawrence

      Good info but we need an outside source with no companies influencing the results to test the displays to truly certify. So last year's Samsung "8k" should be reduced in price even more.

    60. Fee

      Wait so what about the contrast modulation of LG OLED ? Because OLED by lg is WOLED WRGB
