Interested in hearing opinions on it. I just picked up a 4K display, and while not equipped to play anything demanding or recent in 4k (gtx 970), I'm looking forward to some older titles in 4K.

i enjoy it, though I think on the console side HDR is a bigger leap than 4k on all but the best TV's.

I'm not sure I know what the HDR is doing on my Sony 850e.

I mean, I "know" what it does, and I see videos showing the comparison - but how can I tell it's actually working? Sure, things look great...but I went straight from a 1080p 55" to a 4K HDR 75"...of course things are going to look great!

I don't know what it's like to have 4K w/o HDR.

HDR always looks over saturated to me.

you def have to have your settings right to get the maximum benefit. if you have an x1, get the insects demo video, its a little movie that shows the differences and lets you toggle things as it plays to see the differences.

if you hit the display button or whatever on your remote or when you first select an input or something mine shows up in the top right "uhd color" or something like that. a hint that its doing it. the insects thing was a cool way to actually see what it does.

I enjoy it ,but honestly most games the difference between 2k and 4k are not that big, atleast on my 4k tv I haven't tried a monitor yet So I rather switch to 3k or 2k and get 60 FPS on newer games or poorly optimized games. 4k is great on old games though. Especially with emulators was playing Shenmue and Final Fantasy 10 the other day and man they looked so much better then consoles.

Yeah I'll be going back and playing some older titles just for fun with 4K. I'm hoping 4K works on some older RTS and ARPG games. Would love the extra view distance on those.

It works with most games,but there are a few that have problems with it. Like CIV 5

CIV 5 - in my opinion - is fat. It's a resource hog for what it is, I'm not surprised it destroys 4K.
