    Not much content for ultra 4X so, what's the answer? Which are the better 80 plus inch sets and why? I've heard next years models will be better. Again, why?

    You may want to check AVS Forum for more info on the biggest baddest and newest TV. Most of us here seem to be 1 or 2 steps below what you are looking at (75" 4k for me).

    I certainly have no issue with this size which is what I will probable go with anyway. Thanks for the suggestion.

    If you have seen an OLED display you will never want anything else. So to a keep a lid on prices 75" is about as far as you want to go. 80 and 85" will put a real dent in your pocket book.

    77 inches is the largest OLED 4k that was available earlier this year. This year LG revealed an 88" 4K OLED display prototype. Oled is so much better than conventional LED with QLED from Samsung sort of splitting the difference. But no matter what you buy today 8K which will be right around the corner in time for the Summer Olympics I have read. So you have to balance instant gratification syndrome with the future. I have skipped 4K so far, with just having a small set in the Bed room. I will want to see 8K first.

    There is an article that sight and sound published years ago showing the capability of the eye to discern resolution versus distance and screen size. The closer you sit the more resolution you need. The further the less resolution, so depending on your viewing distance, 1080p may be adequate or you might need 8K, Hopefully 4k will be all you ever need.

    I just got two 4K TVs for the house--mine is 65" and to be honest, I see no need for 8K--I can even be a few feet away and I still see no pixellation as I do with 1080p. The other 4K is 42" (it's in a smaller room, so, not much room for anything larger). They're less expensive models, but do perfectly well for our needs--the cost came down to "no-brainer" territory, and the Black Friday deals were in abundance. There is still so little 4K programming that I did it more so I could use mine to display my photography sharply. :D
