What I'm hearing is, 4000 nits in Dynamic mode, 2000 nits in movie mode is the "spec" and then there are just the multiple realities of unit to unit variance, and even the exact settings to use on your meter, how well your light meter is calibrated, how well your light meter deals with really bright highlights, and the actual timing of that measurement since there's usually some ramp up or ramp down.
To the point where a specific number is really much less meaningful than just looking at the screen and deciding if you like what you see. This should be self-evident to anybody who likes HDR on a projector, where the highlights are just a couple hundred nits.
Okay great, this TV can get super bright. That's a fact, but it's a capability that would be a mistake to focus on, as compared to what it's able to do in terms of image processing and what picture quality is like in general, as opposed to what a blown-out square in the middle of the screen measures when in Dynamic mode.
