[Best Buy] Samsung 8K 65" for $2999.99

Looks like a great deal on the 8K 65" Samung QLED TV! Model # QN65Q800TAFXZC

I just bought the 65" Q90T for $2,399 (normally $2,999) a little over a week ago there and I think I would maybe spend the extra $600 + tax for this if I seen this sale then. But this must of popped up and it ends Nov 12th now.

My TV just got delivered today.

Completely serious: Why would you buy an 8k tv? is there even a single piece of content available in 8k?

Came to say exactly this when so much still isn't even available in 4k.

I suppose you could loop the 8k demo video on repeat.

RTX 3090 is now capable of 8k gaming. PS5 and XBox Series X can also display 8K.

At 65" 8K has little to no benefit. You begin to see the difference at 75" and larger.

Skip the 8k BS and just get a 4k OLED.

Quality of pixels >Quantity of pixels

I'm signing up for Bell Fibe 8K TV right now and after my rates go up in 1 month, I'll jump to Rogers 8K Ignite.

For the people saying perfect monitor, wouldn’t you prefer to have a separate tv for the living room for content from a distance, and then multiple monitors on separate mounts so you can tilt towards you and avoid skewing at the edges. All this would also likely cost less than $3000 (but potentially lose some style points, which IMO should be forgiven for the added functionality around the edges).

Some people like to have the latest.

Also, a lot of shows/movies already started filming in 8K anyways. It's just a matter of time but the tech infrastructure needs to handle it for streaming services etc. Essentially doubling the demand.

Same question was asked when 4K came out, there was a bit of lag time as streaming content wasn't there, and not many people would buy a 4K blu ray player anyways.

I just upgraded 4K TVs this year, i'll be okay for next 7-10 years. 8K really will shine for larger displays, anything less than 65-70" as a TV won't be a huge improvement.

Yes true. And maybe best to buy a 75" to 85" range TV in 8K. Probably just keep my newly delivered TV. But could not believe the $1,500 off the Q800T 65".

Yup, 65" 4k has pixel density of 32" 1080p while 65" 8k has density of 16" 1080p. At normal TV viewing distance you won't see the difference, maybe as a monitor but I'd rather have a multi monitor setup.

But its a 65" Samsung LED.. not anywhere near the latest and/or greatest.

65" OLED would be a much better buy. Or go 75/80"+ if you really wanted 8k, a 65" 8k doesn't make sense. It's not like there's limited content, there's 0 content available in 8k so I really don't get it.

They got you with the 8k marketing eh. LED definitely isn't the latest.

Anyway, I'm waiting for 32k
