    HDR is the next big thing in for Ultra HD TVs, the proplem howver is the number in nits of brightness clarity it can produce. A proper good (U)HDTV these days is in the 300 to 500 Nits range (a Nit is...

    oh Very Nice.


    I've been really looking forward to the 1st Quantum Dot TVs and monitors to arrive :)

    They say it is a relatively cheap technology to produce despite potentially exceeding OLED. Ofc I expect the 1st ones to have the usual novelty 1st across the line type price tag!

    Did they just rebrand dynamic contrast? HDR is now a buzz word I guess

    HDR is not the same as dynamic contrast. You should probably do some research before commenting.

    See the alternative is to say "no it isnt, here's what it is..." and maybe provide a link

    The description sure sounds similar to dynamic contrast

    Ah, its included in the media apparently

    Don't trust Samsung yet. Any way waiting for Sony TV's to come out.
    FYI nits of brightness according to Sony will be 4000 :)

    So finally Samsung supports what Sony does for a year now...
    But the fact that quantum dot isnt really a good thing for the environment, and tech that other brands dont need to produce same/better picture, is another reason i dont like samsung products (beside HDD and kitchen appliances ;-)...

    I'm guessing that Samsung has to try to fight back with whatever it's got, taking into consideration that LG has very superior OLED TVs out and will start selling even better ones soon at a lower price than before.
    Can't wait to see OLED TVs continue getting cheaper :)

    Me neither! ALL the tech we have atm is really bad for black levels so your dark scenes in games look dreadful. Also colours look bad and washed out compared to CRT.

    Tvs are currently way ahead of monitors in picture quality..Stop being a hermit..get a few friends and a good tv so you don't have to stay in your room all day playing with yourself and your monitor

    Perhaps his mistake was assuming you had two spare brains cells to rub together..Hence you could have easily Googled the answer yourself..Normally I wouldn't have to teach an adult how to tie their shoes but suffice it to say there is a drastic difference between HDR and dynamic contrast...HDR is the single biggest image quality enhancement tech to come out in over a decade..it literally changes the viewing experience

    Says the guy who can't edit a post or multi-quote in a single post? Your attitude is interesting for someone who has literally only just joined, ex-member perhaps?

    i dont need to use google or read reviews, as long as samsung doesnt pay me, i dont care.
    so far i have yet to see a samsung that doesnt cost twice compared to a sony/LG and that actually looks better with same content.

    that fact it took them 3y to improve their color banding (vs. sony/lg) shows how "good" their tv's are...
