Advice Needed: 65" HDR or 70" non-HDR
I'm a newb to this site, and was hoping to get some advice (I'll keep it short-ish):
Currently re-doing my basement, and so I'm finally getting a 4K tv. It will be used for equal parts movies, video games (XBox One, not the X), and sports (football and hockey). We'll be sitting about 9-10 ft from the screen.
I have been pricing out TV's (pretty much just looking at Samsung, LG, and Sony) and realized that 70" 4K tv's with true HDR are out of my price range (looking to spend $1,500 max). However, 70" tv's with "fake" HDR (HDR compatible or Active HDR) are within my range. Alternatively, I could get a 65" with true HDR and stay within my budget.
So my question is - should I go with the better quality, or the bigger size? Is there a huge discrepancy between HDR and non-HDR? Thanks in advance for your opinions/advice!
PS - My wife has essentially vetoed 75", as she says its too big for the viewing distance, plus I had concerns about playing video games on 75".
