All of this is till very new. Once we obtain some proper tools for calibration it will level the viewing playing field.
Well, I even thought that it was a format standard, but apparently that's not the case.
Anyhow. I was dubious with that new format, but got the K8500 this W-E that I hooked up to my Sony 55X8509C, what a shock !
Even though my tv is only receiving 10 bits but the screen is 8bits, the difference is HUGE, mainly thanks to HDR and the large color palette / contrast it gives.
Got Kingsman, Life of Pi, Mad Max, The Martian, and San Andreas for the moment.
I'd say San Andreas is the least jaw droppping from what I've seen.
But overall, I'd say the only times i've seen a picture that good was during real IMAX screenings.
Will read your reviews ralph, like I used to with standard Blu Rays. Keep up the good job
