PC Discussion - 8k Anyone? - View Post

I needed to get a new TV the other day. So I looked everywhere through the internet. I need 4K, I thought. You can't buy a new Tv right now without 4K, right? But then it began. There are cheap 4K TVs for like 500 €, but those don't have HDR. They say they have HDR, but they don't have a 10-bit-panel and people told me I need that. So, I looked for 10-bit TVs. Couldn't get one for less than 800 €. That's too much for me. But I don't want to buy something inferior. In the end I didn't know what to fucking buy.

You know what I did? I just got an used 1080p TV. 40 inches, Full HD for just 50 bucks. The thing is 7 years old but it works flawlessly. No smart TV bullshit, which is a plus for me, because I like to keep my data to myself. Plus, it cost literally next to nothing and I still had a huge pile of cash to spend on other things such as games! I will stick to that sucker until it breaks down. Maybe in 3 or 4 years 4K TVs with 10 bit or 12 bit or whatever are cheaper. Until then I'm good with 1080p.

On my notebook I have a 1080p screen anyways. But on my MacBook the resolution is a little higher 2880x1440 I think? I'm not sure. Nor do I care. xP
