I bought this TV back in August. If you have one of the updated consoles, it's the cheapest TV i've found that has HDR at a good size.

Only downside is it's only 60hz native with the stupid "TruMotion 120" marketing slang.

But for gaming it's terrific.

Best Buy's site is generally garbage. Here's a review that clearly states it has HDR.

It has HDR. I use it for my PS4

It was really hard to research this tv before i bought it in the summer, that was one of the questions I couldn't get resolved until I had it myself.

Samsung has some strange sizes for their TV's. While it seems everyone is going 55", 65", 70", 75" etc....Samsung comes out with 58", 78" and 82" and what not.

Anyhow, this seems like a decent price for this, but for $50 more I might go with the Vizio 55" M-Series at Best Buy:

I was looking at that one too. The remote (or lack thereof) killed it for me. I don't want to have to rely on my phone or a touch screen as a remote.

yes I'm not sure when you were in the market for a new TV, but it must have been the old model you were looking at.

The current M series TV's have real remotes - not those crapty tablet things they tried to force onto customers. What's interesting is that people must have agreed with you - because BestBuy literally writes on their site:

"All-new Remote
Easily set up, control and adjust settings on your VIZIO display with the included remote. The built-in app buttons make it easy to launch your favorite apps like Netflix with a touch of a button."

Haha, yeah you're right it was the old model. I was finding it very cheap all over the place, and I knew there had to be a catch.

Always buy from Costco (most TV prices are the same across stores). 2 year warranty + 2 additional years if you use their credit card.

Also, their no question return policy. My son ran a magnet (attached to a train) across my TV - just bought the gosh darn thing in November. CS didn't want to even hear my story, simply asked if it was within 90 days and WITHOUT A RECEIPT issued a refund onto my card. Went over to the shelf and got a slight upgrade.

It's anecdotal, but I'd stay away from Vizio if it's a similar price to another TV you like. Bought one of their M series 3-4 years ago and two different strands of LED bulbs burnt out on me. I baby my stuff (despite the freak accident I just posted above) and never even left the TV on when no one was around.

I do t have this model, but I have a similar Samsung 4K, and I love it.

Playing Horizon on a 4K display is top notch! grin

Samsung UN55MU6920 is $498 most places and a solid 4K HDR TV put one in the back, 55" easy on the budget. Only complaints I read were its non voice/key board remote.

Probably better off waiting a couple of months for TCL's new model or getting the P series 2017 model.

Panasonic does the 58" thing also... I have a Viera 4k tv and it's 58". I love how it's bezel is crazy small and the TV is silver, I hate thick bezels it takes away from the view IMO, well in all honesty sometimes I get caught looking at the thin bezel instead of the show I am "supposed to be watching".

For a tv in this price range the S405 is quite good. It's one of the only ones id want under a grand. They are an up and comer and making a good product.

The s405 is a steal at 340

This will prob explain it better. DV is high end and has potential but most things use HDR10 as the standard..including all the game consoles.

All TVs have trade-offs, so it's really a personal judgment as to what you can live without. A good place to start your research is https://www.rtings.com/

Personally I wouldn't buy the S series as a primary TV because I prefer a higher contrast with local dimming. HDR on this set probably won't give you the pop you're expecting, either. Makes a fine secondary set, though.

Agree with rtings.com. They are super tough in their reviews so if they like it then it's pretty nice.

My roommate got this TV during Black Friday. It has HDR, but... well, it's pretty crapty. It's not GOOD HDR. Most cheap televisions kinda throw their best efforts at doing 10-bit dynamic range, and almost all of them really don't do much with it. I'd argue most people nodding and rubbing their hands together over HDR, unless they ponied up money for a decent OLED display, are honestly imagining about 90% of its benefits.

Seriously, head to a Best Buy and spend a good 15-20 minutes just kinda staring at these televisions they have on display; start at the cheap rack, then slowly make your way to the mid and high-end areas, then make your way back. Take your time, flip off the sales guys assaulting you and stare. For a long time! You'll quickly be able to point at the sets with HDR that are doing a very poor job of being not crap once you head back to the economy section. And it all starts with being a good display to begin with. Once you look at good sets, you can see a crap set a mile away, and you'll know that HDR ain't gonna do much of anything to help you out. Honestly most inexpensive sets with HDR, it takes the display from "Wow this is poop" to "Wow, this is less poop".

Yes, that's not to say there's not Non-OLED displays out there that can do good stuff AND have good HDR-10. But don't jump on any ol' display on sale with HDR, good way to throw money in the trash. Always, always check out and compare what you're about to pick up. And if you get it home and tweak it and it just isn't looking like it did in store, return it and try out another brand.

yes for sure, or you'll find you've thrown hundreds at something you arent happy with and for the same or ever so slightly more you could have gotten something a hundred times better
