I'm still confused. Is my current Sharp LC-60E78UN not a 120Hz TV or is it? I always thought it was.

OK, so going by this, are there any 120Hz TVs that are sold as 120Hz TVs? This is where it starts to confuse me. My Sharp LC-60E78UN 1080p 120Hz TV was advertised that way, and that's what I thought...

AFAIK, 65H8C is true 10bit panel, this set is not. So it might be "compatible" with HDR but it can't display it properly. The H8C is a better set overall, faster processing, better upscaling.

True 120Hz 4k TVs

I'm looking for a relatively low-mid range priced 65" 4k TV. I currently own a Sharp LC-60E78UN 60" 1080p 120Hz TV which is dying so I'm in the market for a new one.

The confusing thing to me is...

HDR and no HDR? Yeah, that would be worth $200.

As for the 65H8C, how's the 3:2 pulldown on this set? It's a 60Hz set and I currently have a true 120Hz 1080p Sharp so I'm hesitant to go 60Hz at...

Craigslist all day. If all you need is a 40" TV and don't care if it's 1080p you can pick up a decent set for <$100. I just picked up a 40" yesterday for $70. 4k not so much.

Oh, it's good when it works. But unfortunately it's very buggy. I also wish there were more HDCP 2.2 ports.

I suspected Plex would work fine at 23.976 because it changes refresh rates to match the source. There's something going on with the Android 7 update, and I hope Nvidia gets to the bottom of it soon.
