8K is pretty much useless for me, I am at the maximum distance for being able to see 4K now. I'd need like a 200" screen or something

8K surely isn't going to be for the everyday home but for commercial/public applications

Watching Infinity War 4K on my C8 was so good :wub:

But holy gooseberry fool the wasted screen real estate. Film makers need to switch to 16:9, the current resolution is such a shambles when a huge portion of viewing is going to be on home screens which are probably 90%+ 16:9 displays.

Cinema screens aren't 16:9 though, most filmmakers probably don't give a gooseberry fool about us home viewing plebs.

I do find it irritating though when there's huge horizontal borders on the screen.

I’ve watched quite a few films recently that didn’t have the massive borders, such as Life of Pi and Inferno.

One negative I’ve noticed with HDR content on LCD panels though, it half show up the uneven backlighting on very dark scenes when the brightness is cranked up to maximum.
