Nicole Scott, the editor of Mobile Geeks Technology news website stated “if you are planning on buying a television that will last for a decade or more, then 8K might be useful. One of the only reasons I think that consumers should look at 8K TVs is that you keep your TV for a really long time. So if you need to pick up a TV this year, and you want to keep it for five to ten years, you’ll want the 8K feature when there is finally 8K content in a couple of years,”
