2017 LG C7-B7 Owners' Thread (No Price Talk)

I used the start screen from Destiny 2 just now (after the LG HDR symbol appears, and where Destiny wants you to press A for XBox). This is an off-white greyish-brown screen. Each step - Changing from off to low, low to medium, medium to high actually increases overall brightness.
Having DC set to low allows for HDR data to be used from the source but the TV does not add to it. When set to medium or high then the TV uses its algorithm to make changes.
There is a loss in fine detail in highlights when using DC at all during games because the highlights blow out slightly. This is unavoidable and the detail loss is stronger with higher levels applied but how much it bothers you or how much you notice or are willing to put up with is very much a personal preference. A lot of it is room dependent. Do you have a dark room or are you stuck with windows that bring in light and have to have a brighter image to compensate.
