I personally think the "concept" of HDR is a bit overrated. (And yes, when I posted that, someone INSISTED it was because my settings were wrong). "Personal preference" anyone? But both SDR and HDR looks great on these sets.Lol! Honestly even one told me how good the Samsung Q90 R was so I bought one. Most people would just watch it and be happy. Me and the Mrs could never get through a single film because instead of me watching the film Iâ€™️m looking at the screen analysing everything then pausing the movie to adjust settings! Iâ€™️m terrible.The Q90r was the first HDR tv I got. When I blasted up amazon prime, Disney or Netflix in HDR is was just so dark we ended up just watching 4K SDR. To tell you the truth I wasnâ€™️t wowed by it, itâ€™️s wasnâ€™️t really much different to my old ju7000? Playing games it always looked like something was missing? Nothing popped, no wow look at this show off my tv moments or anything? Maybe Iâ€™️m just to fussy? I donâ€™️t know but I remember getting my ju7000 and putting a 4k film on and almost falling over at the picture! I want that again! I want to actually see what this HDR movies stuff is all about? If I was going to show off a movie on the Q90R I would always make sure HDR was NOT on. Trust me I tired every setting and every combo I could find from forums and ratings and lol that stuff but was just not good.
I also found HDR to be too dim (oops, his settings must be off again!), until I ditched the Sony X700 player for the Panasonic 420. HDR looks bright (enough) and very dynamic.
People like you and me need to keep in mind that NO tv is going to be PERFECT. Searching for the unattainable will yield nothing. People like us don't "own" tvs; We "return" them.
But the good news is, this LG is the FIRST tv I actually got to the point where I just (gulp).. . watch it!
(Yes, it took me a good 3 months to adjust the heck out of it. Find new settings that would then change the variables on the old, and then re-set everything and then start all over when I found out my blu-ray players sucked).
But FINALLY I just "watch" and I will admit to you and the world that it is almost "uncomfortable" - I'm that used to having a relationship with my tv that I constantly adjust it to the dismay of anyone watching it with me. And when I'm not feeling good about my tv or settings, I don't even want to watch a movie with someone. I want to "fix" it instead.
But not anymore. This is a WONDERFUL problem. For the first time, I'm getting used to not having my "trusty remote" in my hand while watching a movie.
Hope you get that same elusive experience with your LG OLEd Sy!
My word Sargon! My word! I remember my son who couldn’t wait to get on Fortnite on dads new tv! He played for about 5 mins but gave up after I continually had the menus settings up.mon every scene! My Mrs has already said about getting her tv in the bedroom as she doesn’t want to even bother watching a film on the new oled. She says I’ve got issues!? Problem is even if I got a pro calibration done I would still have that niggle in the back of my mind. When I get my C9 it’s gonna start again! The only calibration I can do is my spears and Munsel disc. I don’t know enough about anything else like all the other setting I just do trial and error. I’m the same. I get so stressed out i factory reset and start again. Over and over and over again..... Will a quick spears and Munsel session be ok? Is out the box alright? Plus is the Netflix app and stuff ok in the HDR?
