    Anyone get one yet? I am looking at pairing my xbox one S with a KU6300 budget HDR Samsung tv.

    Too early. I'm waiting this one out. All the manufacturers need a universal spec and some desirable content before I'm convinced.

    Thankfully my plasma is still holding strong.

    I am looking forward to it, though. HDR and the extended color are going to be much more exciting than 4K IMO.

    There are like 8 games already, the one S supports HDR.

    However the one game I have, has still not upgraded to HDR (Battlefield)



    I bought it. Just noticed today that I have no HDR games. lol. I guess ill be banking on HDR10 to win over DOlby Vision.

    Whatever, I needed another TV, is was 670 with a 3 year replacement plan and should be the top TV in my house and should play all the HDR games moving forward. We'll see. I plan to hook it up tonight and test it out.

    Let us know how you like it.

    I saw your post over at AVS. Consider yourself stalked. :whip:

    I am in the market for one too. Probably this summer is when I will be able to afford it. In time for Scorpio.

    A buddy of mine got the 65" LG OLED TV and it looks pretty damn good. I am a bit jealous.

    The one I got is a budget HDR that doesnt quite have all the bells and whistles but will work supposedly for $600. You can spend 1k-15k to get some really awesome ones. I will report my findings once I test it out. It turns out I have no HDR games yet (bf1 never patched itself to have HDR as promised) but i might be able to HDR off of netflix or amazon.

    OLED probably costs even more.

    AVS still exists? I don't know if I've even been there this century, I kind of forgot all about the place. Although now that I think about it, I did re-visit that site a few times during the HD/Blu Ray battle. I especially liked that forum during the early days of TiVo and it was a godsend as high definition started to become a reality.

    It's still great. Some rather epic convos about the most trivial of first world problems. :D

    Understood and it has long been a good resource for that. Back in the early to mid 90's I used a site called The Electric Company (if memory serves) for tech talk and electronic purchases/research but they died out as DVD came into vogue. I think most of us home theater fans ended up on AVS not much after that.

    In the mid to late 90's there were a lot of other good sites such as The Home Theater Forum and Digital Bits (I think they're both still around) but AVS had answers for everything and a nice mix of experts and devoted fans. But now, I think my early adopter days are finally behind me so it has less value to me these days.

    So I will turn it on tonight, had some issues get in the way.

    Something funny: it comes with composite cables.

    like....really? Did I just make a mistake purchase? Why the heck would a TV come with those and not an HDMI cord in 2017?

    I asked that question 20 years ago before going out and buying component cables. I just think of it as batteries not included. Or maybe they know that some videophiles will want to waste 800 bucks on Audio Quest Carbon HDMI Cables.
