Not until it is very mainstream and in a 49". Not happening anytime soon. Plus I have it from a good source Dish(what I use) is not even "planning" a 8K DVR until at least 2024. On the current Hopper out of about 600 total channels only a handful are even consistently 4K yet. Anyways, for it to show up in a 49" is a long time away if ever. All I have room for and I sit close enough to it regardless. Right now only Samsung(AFAIK
) has a 55 for $3,500MSRP. When and if a 49" is under $1,500 I will bite. Doubtful it ever even happens. I would not buy the $3,500MSRP 55" now either because MicroLED is around the corner. I am not sure if there is even an OLED 8K 55" yet? Anyways I just bought my TV 4 days ago. So I suppose my answer is no!
Plus even if the Olympics is in 8K I cannot view it in that resolution with dish either. There is pretty much no broadcast reception here and I do not even have an antenna. Since it would be useless here anyways. So right now I am crippled by size and resolution of the hardware delivering the content. I do not use the apps much either. Even with those very little of interest to me is in 4K let alone 8K. Upsampling is not even close to native. In fact the only way you can tell the Q900 is a better TV than the Q70 is to run native 8K on it. Plus it has issues that OLED's suffer from like bad stutter which I hate. It is not worth it to me to get better black level either. I would say to those that really want it wait for MicroLED or OLED to catch up.
Right now, for the price I personally feel it is a complete waste. Barely any 4K content let alone 8K. Hopefully by the next time I am ready to purchase price and size have decreased along with viable content options. I already said my answer was no but I am speaking on the behalf of others that may be interested in it. I feel it is a waste right now. Maybe in 5 years it is mainstream, smaller TV's available and decrease in price. However mainly better display technology is around the corner to make good usage of such a high resolution. I feel now would be an awkward time to spend that and one may just regret it as the technology of the panels improves very shortly. In fact probably more shortly than there will be hoards of 8K content. I feel now is not the right time. If on the fence I would say wait a bit then. Just my personal feelings. YMMV of course.
Actually I think in some ways I concur with the majority of the posts in this thread. Although I may have taken the meaning of it wrong. I figured the OP meant "now". If in 5+ years, probably so! It will most likely be a standard feature amongst all sets by then along with hopefully MicroLED or perhaps even better technology! It does seem though under 55" is the Bastard child nowadays(if that is okay to say here, if not Mod's kindly delete it). Everyone wants the largest they can obtain. To me personally it is not that big a deal. I feel 49" is perfect even in a (large) bedroom. I am the head of the Household so the theater room is technically mine since I paid for it
Although, ask my kids that question LOL.
