Samsung's 85-inch 8K TV is available to pre-order for $15,000

Samsung's gigantic 8K QLED TV is very nearly available in the US... and you might need to take out a loan to afford it. The company has opened up American pre-orders for the 85-inch Q900 ahead of its October 28th ship date, and it will cost you a staggering $15,000. While that's not the most expensive bleeding-edge set we've seen (remember when a 4K TV cost $20,000?), it still means monthly payments closer what you'd expect for a car.

We liked the Q900 in our brief eyes-on between its extreme resolution, vivid colors and high brightness (no mean feat given all the extra pixels). However, you're buying the TV purely for bragging rights at this stage. It's not just that there's a dearth of 8K-native content -- it's that the price of 8K sets is likely to plunge in the next few years, just as OLED and 4K prices fell through the floor. By the time there's enough 8K content to justify a set, the technology should be decidedly more affordable.
