Yes. HDR is actually all that matters unless you've got your nose up against your 50" TV. Sitting 6-8' away on your couch, the vast majority of people with normal or corrected eyesight can't distinguish much of a difference between a 4K or 1080P resolution.. but an HDR 720p scene would look more impressive to most than a 4k SDR scene.

I'm not saying that 4k doesn't matter. It absolutely does improve picture quality and we can see a difference from the couch, but it's not nearly the difference that having more life-like contrast ratios and color gamut is.

When you're standing 2' from the TVs at the store, the 4K TVs look wildly better, even the 48"ers.. but you're not going to want to buy a 48" 4k TV unless you plan to sit right next to it at home. At home, you really want that 65"+ 4k TV to take advantage of the extra pixels from a normal sitting distance.

That's not to say that the HDR10 presentation is bad, it isn't at all...it's actually rather good, but the DV presentation has more shadow detail and better highlights making for a fuller looking image.

I will say that the uncompressed audio on the UHD curb stomps the streaming version, though. Pacific Rim is a home theater audio showcase disk. Your neighbors will hate you if watched at high volume.
I just put together this stand for my new TV since my old plasma is mounted to a spine, for lack of a better word, on my old stand which I'm moving out of the living room. A decent Atmos setup will be next on the list.

That looks like a nice stand. I need to invest in a new one myself. The C7 is wall mounted, but my center channel is pretty big, and I need something to put all the components in. The old Ikea cabinet is looking pretty beat up, and I had to rig in a bunch of fans to keep it cool.

This is the old stand and TV. Right now I have the new Vizio on the glass in front of the old TV. My buddy is coming over tonight to drink and play Cuphead. I'm going to rope him into helping me move that into my bedroom and put the new TV on the new stand.

Eventually I'll hang it on the wall but in the meantime this is nice and high to be at a good viewing height.

It's a good looking stand and for what it's worth, walmart.com had it for $269.

Apartments that have had multiple residents that drill holes into the same wooden stud to hang their TV, does it worry some of you that your TV gets the Russian roulette where it comes crashing down?

(this next paragraph will be taken out of context but here goes )

We rented a place in Glendale, California back in 2013 and as I drilled into the wall where the stud was detected, I noticed crumbling plaster and not drywall coming off the drill bit and as I drilled further, there was almost no resistance where the stud should have been. That TV went on a stand instead.

What site offers reviews of TVs? Someone quoted me here before using their grading system and I want to check a few things out

Pretty comparable. Seen pretty favorable reviews. Buying my mom a 55" 4k one with Roku built in to replace her old (and failing) 50" 720p plasma.

If I have a pretty good 60" 1080 set and I sit 12- 15' away is it worth going to 4k? I know I would really like the OLED HDR 4k stuff for reasons other than resolution but is there much 4k main stream content? Is there any 4k broadcast content? How are the 60"+ 4k sets for fast panning/sports?

OLED will have better fast motion than LED, but maybe not as good as plasma. There is currently no 4k broadcasts, but many streaming options with catalogs that are increasing rapidly. UHD BluRay with HDR is amazing on OLED.

Do keep in mind that OLEDs are prone to burn in. If you would be using your display predominantly for watching 24 hour news or sports channels with tickers or other static elements, I'd advise to not consider OLED.

I think amazon has 4k content. You could measure the exact distance from the tv to the couch and then go to a store and stand that far away from a 1080p set and a 4k set. Let your eyes decide.

I could use a gigantic 65" hdr TV but im the poor right now. My 50" looks tiny compared to the huge 19' x 19' wall it sits on.

ohhh, interesting. Well, I don't watch any news channels of any kind and only ESPN when there is a game on or something but they do often have the score bar in the same place. Also, the wife loves to leave the TV on after streaming to chromecast so it's on the slideshow of pictures thing. I am not sure if there is a clock or something static during that.

Daily deal any 3 UHD BD discs from this list for $50. I think I might get Fury Road and Pacific Rim but I'm having trouble deciding on a 3rd. The Revenant should be good. I'm leaning towards Inception or Interstellar, I own both on Bluray but they should each look significantly better with HDR implementation...

Bought a new X900 55" Sony Bravia 4K TV this weekend...and I'm returning it tonight, was not impressed with the picture once I got it home. I'm still rocking a Panasonic plasma and I still think the 1080p quality of those is just as good if not better on your average everyday content...even the HD olympic stuff looked better on my older Panasonic...I am dissapoint...

Strange.
I bought X900 65" couple of weeks ago and was blown away by the picture quality.
There are few settings that need to be adjusted, but 4k HDR content is mind-blowing.

HD content on a UHD screen is like back when HD was first coming out and people were watching their SD content and wondering why it didn't look so much better and actually worse in some cases.

Watch 4k content to enjoy your TV.

Some TV's claim they 'upscale' HD content. I recently bought a 40" UHD TV for my PC monitor. The thing that is the craziest to me, is that you can really tell the quality and settings on the cameras when looking at still photos. Not all '4k' images are alike. However, when you come across a picture that nailed the settings it is gorgeous.

0 regrets on the purchase. Samsung UN40MU6290.
