I couldn't agree more and thanks for reminding me of the expanded color palette, which to me is far more important than HDR. Honestly, I'd love to see an 'off' switch for HDR for those movies where...

To make it eye level, all I'd have to do is throw out our dressers. My wife would really appreciate that. ;)

I agree, you'd think viewing angle would be less of an issue than more in the bedroom vs the den. It's probably a combination of the height and angle that exists in our bedroom. If you look back at...

Ray, I've actually specified my setups in a number of posts. OLED in the bedroom to replace my deceased Sharp Elite and the Sony 940c in the den.

Yes, most of my viewing is in the den, but I'd bet...

I'd disagree with this. They sold so few OLEDs because their OLEDs were priced so much higher than LG's. There simply wasn't enough of a difference to warrant the much higher price.

The OLED...

Emphasis on 'few'. I've seen only one exception where my Sony 940c handled anything HD (720p, 1080i or 1080p) better in the lowest luminance range. That was a few scenes in GOT. There were a few...

If I were buying a movie (I don't buy many) that existed in both formats, I'd always opt for the UHD version. So the point here is that, IMO, most HDR content I've seen (on any display, LCD or OLED)...

So my take on this is that I'd rather have the display that does the best with 95% of what I watch. In my case that's SDR. The OLED won a far more overwhelming victory with SDR than did the Samsung...

We went out to see The Infiltrator tonight and the PQ made me chuckle. Many scenes exhibited crushed blacks with little shadow detail. Other scenes looked quite grainy.
