If you currently have a perfectly good looking set, I'd hold off until the dust settles on all this HDR technology. It's still a moving target!
The Samsung 2017 QLED is ONLY the precursor to the true QLED of 2018. In other words, a filler in the mean time, and NOT the real thing!
If you HAVE TO GET a set in 2017, best wait until the reviews are in re all the new Betas we've been presented with.
The other aspect of LCDs, NOT mentioned here is, the sets get better as the hours go on them, the panel gets blacker, plus add in FW updates, the sky is the limit. My HU9000, upgraded with the SEK-3500U, plus numerous FW updates, more than gives me what I need and want. I put the performance upgrade as 250% since it originally came out of the box. It's come a long way baby. It's also a 65" curved set that fits nicely into my cabinet. With everything going back to flat, and thereby making the next set only a 60", and no 3D. Sorry, I'll wait it out until 2020.
And yes, I'm perfectly happy with the HDR performance! I'm NOT a Dynamic Freak!
