is it a good year (2016) to upgrade to HDR/DV TVs?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I am happy with my current TV. I do want to upgrade to 4k HDR/DV TV because even 1080p upscaled to 4k looks noticeably better than on 1080p sets using the same content but I am not sure if it is a good year to upgrade or wait until content becomes dominated by 4k HDR or DV.

The foundation is being constructed,UHD blurays are coming out and there are already UHD players on the market such as the Xbox One S.

With 1500 bucks you can get a Samsung UHD HDR TV (KS8000) with a Xbox One S and two games.

I think I will wait for 4k HDR/DV content to dominate mainstream. Tbh I do not see enough streaming content out there to justify a 4k HDR tv. For now, I might upgrade to a Samsung UN55J6200 (1080p) or Sony XBR-55X810C (4k non-HDR). I will see. They both are relatively cheap (or should be if they go on sale at end of year) and I do not really care much for the 4k aspect or lack of HDR, not until enough HDR/DV content is commonly available and by that time 4k HDR TV sets should be easily affordable..

I have a question about them. On the RTings.com site, a support feature mentioned for both TVs is "Judder-free 24p via 60p" thru movies from 60 hz PC signal. What does this look like? Does this make smooth movements if I am watching movies on PC or something?

And what is the visual difference between that and motion interpolation (soap opera effect)? Does judder-free help make motion interpolation look better or what??
