If you've been waiting to pull the trigger on a new 8K TV, now could be the time, as prices dip to near 4K levels

An 8K TV still feels like tomorrow's technology to me. They've been around for a while but due to their ultra-high prices – and lack of any real content – they've always seen a distant dream. 

But if you're planning on upgrading your TV, you might as well future-proof yourself and buy the very best technology. In that case, you should ignore the 4K models and pick up an 8K TV. 

Plus, right now among the best Black Friday deals, you can find 8K displays that are only a touch more than their 4K cousins. Scouring through the best TV deals, I discovered this 65-inch Samsung model that is now under £2k, which is a relative bargain for such a screen. 

You can find 55-inch 8K TVs for even less, but in my opinion, if you're going for 8K, you want to go bigger to really appreciate all those extra pixels. So, a 65-inch model is preferable, especially if you can find one at a good price.

Save £500 – The QN700 is the slightly cheaper version of the QN900, with a lite version of the Neural Quantum Processor and object tracking sound, but still a very impressive TV.

Save 37% – The 55-inch version of the QN700 is another £460 cheaper, though you won't see as much of a benefit over 4K at this size.
