    I think that it comes with a HDMI 2.0 cable.

    Should be. You would think there would be a definitive way to check, but alas, this is the state of the industry right now.

    Doesn't 2.0 support everything on the market ATM?

    Yes. It's the interoperability and implementation between brands that create confusion.

    The industry, as fast as it moves at getting the new specs out, severely lags behind with the content. There is still very little 4K content, and it has been out what, 4-5 years already?

    Those specs look great, but there is no way we see higher resolution content anytime soon... :(

    it is amazing how much smaller a 55" is than a 60"

    Set everything up, all HDR is green checkmarked after making a few adjustments. You must you HDMI one and you must go into the TV setting and set yes to UHD color on the TV.

    I dont have any HDR content, everything on amazon HDR has to be paid for, none of my games are HDR so all I know is that the standard picture is beautiful and it says everything is supported.

    If it's the one i'm looking at upgrading to, those things are gorgeous. Is it 4k too? OLED is the only screen tech that comes close to plasma, which is what i have now.

    Oddly enough, my teenager caught it, even when not playing HDR games, there is a signification difference between this and my few year older model 1080p tv. On the old one we noticed on rocket league the text looks like something out of minecraft. The overall picture now seems grainy and just not as good.

    Considering this is not even HDR content I am viewing, I am pleasantly surprised at the difference from my older TV to this one.

    The older one is only like 1-2 years old 1080p model so its not like it is real old tech.

    So I highly recommend this except I warn you, you will want to replace all of your TVs once you see the difference.

    The text sizes for example are usually caused by settings on the TV.
