  1. Can somone help me whats the right setting i have a ps4 pro and a new 4k hdr tv under my hdr game mode theres extended and nomal color gamut whats the correct gamut for hdr?

  2. What I don't understand is what content is and will be available with these new standards. Do the new high-powered consoles upscale media? Which ones, and what media do they have an effect on?

  3. My set's a 32", and UHD needs much more than that. Not willing to rearrange my whole gameroom and deal with motion sickness because TV makers want another rush of money like we saw with HD. The HDR format war doesn't help.

  4. This is as confusing as I thought it would be. Not diving into 4k / HDR until my current TV kicks the bucket. Also, I enjoyed seeing the Knights of Sidonia clip in the video, thanks!

  5. 4K is not even necessary in most situations. What you want to have when looking for a screen is retina quality, this means you wont see any pixels. The concept is when someone is looking farther away it is harder to see pixels so you can have a less pixel density in your screen. This means that if you have a 60 inch screen and you are 2.5 meters away you cant see any difference between 4K and full HD. It is also the reason you want to have full HD on a phone and 2K on a tablet.

    If you wanna see what kind of screen you need you can use a retina calculator. It can cost you a whole lot less.

  6. Just watched this video again. Too many variables, and too damn confusing. Im a simple man. 1080 for now. In a few years ill look into 4k once it matures and 4K doesn't negatively affect my gaming experience. Resolution isnt everything. Especially when its at the cost of visual effects in my games.

  7. I really don't care. I'm perfectly fine with 1080p. But the industry iron out 4K and simplify its execution and then I will consider getting it. At this point in time it doesn't matter to me.

  8. I bought a KDL55950B a couple years ago and I absolutely love it, but it's only 1080p…I want a 4k HDR for the Scorpio but I want a great gaming tv like my 950B…what are the best 4k HDR tvs NOW with great low input lag

  9. that was confusing. I just enabled hdr to the hdmi ports on my 4k TV. connected my consoles which auto detected what my TV has. Played a movie and game with hdr support adjusted the picture quality to my liking and job done.

  10. one thing that also gets on my nerves is when people do a little research and find "oh hey this is a great tv vs price." then I go "but you are going to be gaming on most of the time, so how good is its response time, refresh rate, contrast, and on and on." and then they are like "I don't know"
