Theres one scene where they are all partying on a boat and the boat is surrounded by water obviously, but all you see is the boat. The water looks like the black plague. I'm guessing this is the intention of UHD HDR, and if so idk if I'm liking it. I like the detail of a regular bluray a little better at the moment. IMO nothing right now is beating a nice clean 1080p feed until they get some more standards for HDR and DV. But that's just me, I love playing my blu rays. When I upgraded from the Panny S64 to the ZT60 my blu rays were like another world of viewing. Anyway, thanks and glad its nothing out of the ordinary.
BTW, I am not that happy with the brightness of the P50, I was happy with the brightness of the P55 but then blacks looked "greyish" at night, so I'm actually debating going to the P65 lol, after having the P50 for a few days, I can only imagine how great it will look at 65".
Side note about VUDU....I love the basis of the app but man does it need some tinkering from the developers. I thought it was just a Vizio issue, but as I play titles on my Computer from VUDU..it still has terrible stutter and jerkiness to the PQ. So for now I will be sticking to Blu Rays until that gets sorted out, certainly not spending 30$/title for that.
Turts, sometimes you need to cast the netflix/vudu app and double check that the calibrated dark setting is active. You may even want to reset the picture mode before you start the movie to make sure nothing was accidentally changed.
I haven't had much experience with DV/HDR outisde of a couple episodes of marco polo on netflix (haven't tried vudu yet). I felt that the display on CD with DV active was too dark for me as well (decreasing gamma did help). It could be due to the cinematography of the series, or the fact that vizio and netflix need to tweak some settings with DV, or even that nexflix may be having issues with hdr content right now...I'm not sure.I'm sure it will be adjusted as hdr content evolves. It is very new after all.
On the other hand, I watched Moving Art: Flowers on netflix last night in 4k (non-hdr) and it looked phenomenal. I'm hoping that DV content will only improve in the future.
As for the P55/65/75, I went with the 65. It has the top-tier features (VA, 120hz, extra zones) at half the price of the 75. If you have the extra cash, I'd go P65. With backlight at 80-85 it is incredibly bright to me on most things I watch.
