LG OLED is the top dog in TV. LG LEDs lag behind Samsung, Sony, and Vizio.

I have a couple Panny Plasmas, so when I have to replace those hoping for OLED to have come down to a reasonable price.

I do have an LG 65" 4K LED in the game room and it is nice. But not top dog.

I've been tempted to get a 4K HDR TV, but I keep thinking I'm better off waiting a bit more. I've got 55" non-4K TV's today. If I'm going to buy something new, I think I want it to be appreciably better. The 65" TVs are getting fairly reasonable in price. But is that enough of a bump in size to make it worth buying?

Meanwhile, a 75" TV would look pretty crappy if it's not 4K. And a 75" TV is quite a bump in size. So I'm kind of holding out for 75" TV's to come down (they're still quite pricey.) But a 75" TV in 4K with HDR is quite striking.
I was under the impression that Netlfix and Amazon 4k content was HDR but it might not be true. I thought that the hang up was that companies play so loose and fast with the HDR definition and large majority of the panels aren't HDR10 even they they label them HDR. Never really clear to me. I know my Samsung 6300 was labelled HDR but I think maybe it doesn't have the full color gamut and certainly doesn't achieve the brightness/contrast levels necessary to do HDR10 justice.

I agree with the comment though. I'm much more excited about working HDR than 8k nonsense.

Basically all Netflix originals are 4K. Their bigger stuff (all the marvel shows, etc), are HDR. They make it quite clear what is what when you’re on an item. Amazon doesn’t make it as clear what’s 4K vs what’s 4K HDR.
