If it's an 8 bit panel, it won't be able to display HDR, only accept an HDR signal.
They (and all TV manufacturers) need to be a lot clearer in their advertising with these TV's.
Borderline lying.
You say only 8 bit but when on Xbox one it says my tv is compatible with 10 bit HDR the picture is amazing I have the same tv
it's compatible, but all the TV is doing is processing the signal, not displaying it.
I have the 55 version and it's still a great TV, well worth it at this price.
what on earth does that even mean? So confused! This HDR business is a minefield. I want a tv that will utilise the HDR features on the Xbox one S also, but it's impossible to tell on most retail sites. HELP!

It means it will accept the signal but will not be able to display it correctly.

Think of it like when most TV's were 720p but they accepted a 1080p signal, they just downscaled it to 720p.

It will accept the signal of a HDR source but it will downscale it to something it can display correctly.

For HDR to look its best you need a much more expensive TV with FALD LED. Most TV's use LED's around the edge, so if you have a bright object in the middle of the screen then the edge lit LED's are not going to make it that bright without making the dark parts look bright too.

FALD LED TV's are usually thicker than edge lit LED TV's because they have a full grid of LED's behind the display lighting it up. So as an extreme example if there is a torch or candle in the middle of the screen it can light up those individual LED's that are behind the torch and it would look bright whilst keeping the rest of the screen dark.

Of course HDR is also about the amount of colour on the screen, so it is not just that. That is why some people ask if things are 10 bit panels. 10 bit panel = more colours can be displayed.

Well I hope that helps, it kind of turned into a long explanation :)

Just need a new tv as the 1 I have is 10 years old but still going strong, but the quality picture is a bit poor. Wood this tv suit me for just watching TV stuff like football and not play station games r things like that. Seems a good price.
Just look out of your window mate.

But it's England, the picture quality is usually worse when viewing through a window!

Lack of HDR puts me off. Richer sounds have the better model for £599.

Seems that you will get a little bit of an hdr effect with an 8 bit panel but far more significantly better effect with a 10 bit panel.

I almost bought a Panasonic 49" HD for the same price. The spec on this is much higher, including USB recording and DLNA compliant.

The best you can do at the moment in terms of "future proofing" is getting an "Ultra HD Premium" certified TV that's either OLED or LED with "FALD". If you're looking to play games, you'll want a TV with low input lag too. At the moment, there is only one TV that meets all the criteria and that's the very expensive Samsung KS9500.

I've never noticed the lag on my Samsung KS7500. I'm far from a pro gamer but still...

I had this tv and I sent it back.

I bought it for the world cup but the banding (I didn't even know what banding was until I had this tv) was so bad I couldn't watch any matches or tv shows with light scenes.

I wouldn't recommend it even at this price.

Or actual blatant lying.
Samsung usually make good tvs with a decent picture even at the low end. If you play games the input lag is usually great for console games at 20ms or so.

The input lag on the KS7500 is very good (21ms). It doesn't have FALD though so it isn't going to be ideal for HDR content.

Just wait... 4K is still a waste of time until they ratify everything.

I don't have a tv currently and need one, this the best value for under £500 at the moment? That's what I'm reading from all this.
#37
Anyone know why they have reduced the 3D options for these HDR models
#38
Horror, I wasn't responding to you, it was an earlier poster who was sort of mocking that's its only 8 bit.
I'm sticking with my Panasonic plasma myself until things pan out on the HDR front, the price of 4k TV's are reducing all the time, however not much content for now.

I'd buy this one but the Mrs said no way. :(

Why do women "wear the trousers" in so many households? Is it because many men earn less now?
Controlling behaviour is now harassment. If she says "no" contact the police.

Weak, feeble and under the thumb! ;) Only joking, I think!

As I said, you can get the Samsung UE49KU6400 for £599 with 6 year warranty at Richer Sounds. That gets great review included lack of blurring etc with sports and is (I believe) 'proper' HDR.
