That's why these things are in the FAQ, because they come up very Frequently! You only have to read the owner's threads for the 2018, 2019 and now this model, to see this. Any excitement at the news that it might be fixed, is just hasty and impulsive. I understand why people are excited, but try to keep the emotions out of it and think clearly.
TLDR: you need to remember ONE thing and ONE thing only: after two years we still have these problems on the 2018 models and LG doesn't seem to be interested in fixing them. Think about that before you make your purchase, not afterwards.
Is SDR not affected by all of this?
If so, I'm good - being that I'm so-so about HDR/DV in the first place.
I really do see the dynamic range. My eyes even constrict a bit like in real life when someone opens a door from inside a house on a sunny day in the movie. Pretty cool.
But it isn't a look that I have ever seen in film before. To date, movie theaters, even those equipped with advanced tech, cannot replicate the dynamic range of what we have at home with these discs and sets.
Also having everything a bit darker to make room for the dynamic range is a "slight" constant reminder that "Dorthy's not in Kansas anymore."
I find myself trying to figure out why
film purists like it so much and people here are "deciding" that if my settings were "correct", I'd like it.
Most movies aren't even shot in HDR. So how is adding this to movies such as 2001, bringing us closer to the director's intent?
Logically, it is only moving us away
Yes, the sticker says, "brighter, deeper, and more life-like colors!" - right on the box. But NOT right in the original film.
So how exactly does all of this bring us closer to the look of film?
