(there is so much tonal range in light and color, creating a crazy sense of depth and color accuracy though). I am not sure what you mean by "SDR to HDR". There is a separate setting for HDR to turn it on manually which was not present in the 930D (but turning on HDR for non HDR material makes everything look over saturated and wrong).
2) You can adjust almost all picture settings in HDR but brightness and contrast are set to maximum by default, to utilize the full range of brightness and dark in the content.
3) There is some reflecting light when watching in daytime, but this is when there is direct bright light going to the screen and you are seeing very dark content. the panel is not fully glossy and has some anti reflective layer. I almost exclusively watch content in the dark so it is not an issue for me.
I had a 39 inch 1080p samsung, the model number escapes me. I bought the 930D but the vertical lines in the panel and broken 3D were enough for me to return it. I do not see any issues with this panel. The HDR and upscaling are far better than the 930D. And no light bleed or clouding I can see.
I took photos of the set with the RX100 IV but because of the size limitation of uploads, these photos are from a Samsung S7 Edge. The phone oversaturates color and makes it seem like there is clouding when in reality there is none.
I see you say there is a HDR logo on the source, but is there a pop-up notification from the actual TV once HDR content starts playing? Both Samsung and LG have HDR notifications from the the TV. I don't know about Vizio....
