***You usually have the option to watch in 1080p versus Dolby Vision or even 4K/HDR. And the way the Sony 900F upscales - you’ll love the picture. I do this all the time with Amazon Prime. If Amazon Prime or Netflix has an DV ride along DD+ Atmos track - then I’ll watch DV for the audio. Otherwise, I could care less about DV.
IMHO - Dolby Vision is the most overhyped and under delivered TV/Video “enhancement” in my lifetime. Right behind that is HDR. But you know what? It really doesn’t matter! I’m perfectly happy with 1080p streaming from Amazon Prime, Netflix and even the occasional Google Play movie. Outstanding picture with vivid colors and exceptional shadow detail. I’m in heaven watching an OTA, less compressed 1080i signal like the Masters this past weekend or Stanley Cup Hockey.
I don’t care what TV you buy — you’ll still be looking for the Dolby Vision “Holy Grail.” Again, my personal opinion is that Dolby Vision will look like crap on every DV capable TV known to man. If you only focus on DV without considering upscaling and processing capability for the bulk of today’s cable, satellite & streaming content - you’ll be missing out on a great set - the Sony 900F.
In my opinion HDR is the greatest, most exciting picture enhancement since color or HDTV. I am constantly blown away by HDR. I don't have Dolby Vision because I have the 900E but HDR when done right is absolutely incredible, stunning. Amazon does some of the most incredible HDR, they do it right. Netflix is hit and miss but they are doing much better than they used to for implementing HDR.

In other words, it's truly a matter of taste. I for one am with Ricoflashback on this one.I have watched Aquaman on HDR and although in some scenes the image looks better, in others it didn't. In fact what I like about HDR is the color but what I hated were bright scenes where I had to shut my eyes because it was too bright, like the scene where young Arthur is leaping in the ocean. The scene starts in a moderate light but as he leaps, the angle shifts showing the sky and then it gets too bright. I know some people like it but I don't want to get blinded every time there's scene with the sun in it. Another thing I agree with is the upscaling quality of this TV. WOW! I don't know if this is also true on larger screens but on the 55", when comparing some 1080p Blu-ray titles with their 4K counterparts I found the difference almost negligible. If you give the 4K a 10, I'd say the 1080p Blu-ray would be a 9.8 or even 9.9, assuming of course both were sourced from the same negative or master. I know a lot of people will disagree but I firmly believe that both HDR and DV are just gimmicks devised to make us believe we need to buy new TVs.
