    Hi mate, you already know what your looking for apart from the price you want to pay. Check out Curry's as there can be great deals to be had over bank holidays, particularly with topcashback as well

    1 month ago I got the 49" Samsung ks7000 for my ps4 pro. brilliant 10 bit and looks awesome for horizon zero dawn. a little pricey at £799 but it's worth it.

    Thanks for the comment pal, suppose I do know what I'm after but I've heard all this talk about 8 bit/10 bit and not real HDR I was just wondering what people would recommend for the PS4

    If HDR is your priority then the two that stand out at the moment are the KS7000 are an entry level option or the DX902 for something more accomplished - especially the nearly new ones on Panasonic's outlet.

    The Sony XD93/ Samsung KS8000 is worth a look in the middle, and the KS7500 if you want something smaller.

    It's not a meaningful distinction now. The differences between backlights (local dimming etc.) are the big factor at the moment.

    More to TV's than specs though. You really need to go and look at picture quality in store...take some media on a USB stick and compare the same clip on each TV..

    43UH620V is a 4K HDR TV from LG, price is around £370 and the input lag is low. I use it for ps4 pro and its phenomenal!

    The UH620 has no extra hardware to display HDR so although it'll accept an HDR signal it's a bit of a push to call it an HDR TV.

    it does display HDR. has its own HDR mode. its 8 bit + FRC as well

    It displays HDR content and has an HDR mode to configure it yeah, but it's being displayed with exactly the same hardware as a non-HDR TV.

    FRC only creates colours between the existing ones by averaging out surrounding pixels, it can't create the more extreme colours of the wider gamut backlight that is part of the HDR bundle of technologies, and missing from the UH61/62 in all the reviews I've seen.

    HDR is a bundle of technologies and standards so the line where something becomes an 'HDR' TV is open to interpretation - especially as not even a top of the range TV can do it all yet.

    I'd be inclined to put it in the inclusion of the technology it's named after - the ability to put a higher brightness range on screen. i.e. an effective local dimming system.

    Manufacturers, predictably, as putting the line as low as possible so they can sell 'HDR' TVs as cheap as possible.

    Of course the thing to do is to ignore the question and look at which technologies you're actually getting.
