[quote=VA_DaveB;57193686][QUOTE=ffactoryxx;57192156]I am wondering the same if I should get this or the 82 in Samsung.
How bright is this TV guide in terms of nits? It's going on a large wall with 11 ft ceilings shown here in the family room.
That room looks to be huge - maybe 40 feet across to the back of the dining area with a severe angle to the kitchen which might make an IPS panel a good idea. So get the biggest screen, either the 86" LG or 85" Sony. Rtings measured the LG's real scene brightness at around 300 nits for both SDR and HDR. That brightness level is fine for SDR, not that good for HDR, but the LG doesn't have local dimming so HDR will not be very good anyway. The 82" Samsung is an edge-lit VA panel and the local dimming isn't very good and can't be turned off, so HDR should be better but not great. To get good HDR performance, you would need to spend $5K and go for the XBR85X900F which is a VA panel FALD TV. But if you're watching mostly SDR (regular TV and sports) as most people outside of the forum, local dimming isn't critical, so just decide if you want an IPS panel like the LG 86UK6570 or an VA panel like the Sony XBR85X850F.
Those rting numbers are based on the smaller tv's of the 6570
I can all but guarentee the 86inch will be brighter on the 7570
Number 1, the 86 version runs on alpha7 processor
Number 2, the bigger model features ultra luminance which is subpose to enhance screen brightness.
I dont believe any of the 85inch x850f will go past 500nits
The lg 7570 will top out 400-500nits
The 900f will hit 900 but cost you 2k more
Hdr is not just about black levels and nits dont forget about color
