Anyways, the only way you'll see any kind of actual benefit from DV is if you've got an LG OLED. The Vizio P and the lower end LG use a fake/simulated DV that provides minimal benefit at best.
What exactly makes you say that the Dolby Vision on the Vizio P series is simulated or fake?
I own an LG B6 which is a 12 bit panel, but I thought that DV has a cert spec that a TV must meet and would need to be 12 bit.
I think a statement like that without evidence can be inflammatory here since many guys defend their choice of sets with rabid affection.
From what I've seen of the P series, the Vizio is a legit set with quality 4K and HDR. No it's not an OLED, but nothing is just yet.
DV is indeed more pleasing to the eye than HDR10, but 10 isn't bad, just not as good. Saying that, yes, more sets will support DV in 2017, but for me it's the 4K Blu Ray that's most important, but I've purchased a number of disks this year that I think look just fine with just HDR10. If Mad Max and Revenant could look any better, I wouldn't believe it, even with DV, so even if you don't have it, you can still have a great picture.
DV on Netflix looks impressive, but you can still see some compression and grain. Daredevil looks best, followed by Marco Polo.
Any HDR is better than no HDR thats for sure!
