" ...  You can also convert normal input to HDR, HLG display output. ... I was using "Normal" picture setting for increased brightness but after changing the picture mode to "Cinema" I can experience the best black levels and stuck on with it now. ... Tinkering the picture settings is a bit risky because if you don't have the patience of getting the desired output by changing one by one then I would suggest you to stick on with the predefined calibrated setting. ... To me the "Cinema" setting outputs the best picture quality with best black levels.  ...  "

" ...  Watching 4k pictures on Youtube, the quality is mindblowing. ... Though there isn't much Free 4K content available that is worth watching, but this TV is ready when needed. ...
