Preachin' to the choir. I haven't sat through a full movie in HDR yet, but while I'm impressed by what I see in demos, I find the experience to be generally hard on the eyes.

When you say 'newer' that depends on what you are referring. Sony's 2016 models in the 8xx series are actually inferior to the 2015. About the same brightness, but worse black levels and contrast....
