the 49in triluminous display looks fantastic! The edge lit led panel has no light bleeding or clouding and blacks look extremely deep. The color gamut is a bit lower than top end sets, however if you're new to WCG tvs you really won't notice at all. Reds are mega vibrant, greens are bright, and blues look pronounced. The tv is uglier than the x850d but it also cost a great deal less and delivers all the main features in a smaller size. HDR, is the best thing your eyes will ever see in 2016! This tv does it well.
4k 2160p looks fantastic. the tv is a native 60hz tv with motionflow 240. This is NOT a deal breaker. You see hz and fps ARE the same thing. They both measure motion refreshments. The only difference is that tvs display this measurement info, differently from source devices like bluray players. 60hz is an average consumer's tv refresh rate, while 240hz is an extreme user's tv refresh rate. 60fps is the fastest measurement in consumer level media,or as you may have seen it hdmi 2.0 4k/60fps. The only exception to this is pc, which can do well over 120fps for gaming or advanced technology applications. Thats why high end tvs push 240 native, so that pc gamers and power users are accommodated. If you aren't pc gaming, or working for nasa, a 60 hz refresh rate DOES NOT matter. All bluray discs play at 30fps max, and all UHD discs play at 60fps max. You don't need a tv that can refresh 240 times per frame if your source can only refresh 60 times per frame. The 4k experienced here is a fantastic spectrum of HDR vibrancy and extraordinary motion. 1080p, looks almost as fantastic as 4k here. Loads of detail and tack sharp imagery. 720p looks good. Obviously not 1080p good, but this tv holds well here. 480p or the dvd sd quality is awful. 480p dvds are grainy and oversharpened, overshadowed and really feels clunky. If you ever seen 480p on a samsung this will eat you alive. If its not HD, FHD, or UHD, don't expect much.
Just buy a soundbar, the sound is okay but you're missing out by not spending the $130 to get a basic 2.0 experience.
Works just like it does on all 2016 XBR tvs. The layout is tile based, fells good, and though not perfectlyresponsive 100% of the time feels is a nice touch. YouTube, Netflix, and hulu all here. Works great.
You get; 4k hdr, wcg,(wide color gamut),deep blacks, flagship UI,sleek design, and hdmi 2.0; you also get the next industry standard and XBR bragging rights. Dont let the 60hz scare you. It's all marketing, you really don't need more than 60hz. I highly recommend this to ALL who have a lower tv budget but want flagship quality. WARNING: buying this on Amazon will likely result in a set with uniformity issues, the quality control has gone way down and you probably will need to play a lottery. I don't think the tv warehouse is climate controlled, to many people have issues here but go to best buy and are just fine. If you want to buy it in Amazon just keep in mind any tv over 50in will be sent via a freight company, and will voit you 2 day prime shipping. If you have any issues on anything 55in and up, large items will be the people to talk to. They are very rude so be aware. As far as the tv goes, yeah dude totally worth buying with your hard earned money. 👍
