As in to say, who here has a HDR TV or monitor? (Not your phone). 

And while we are at it. Who among you would choose a 1080p HDR display over a 4k SDR display?

I among us, would take 1080p HDR over 4k any day. Just downsize the screen and I'm sorted, I have began to love 4k more and it's pretty significant for gaming (Film, not so much) but it's nothing on HDR. It's something that came out of left field and that adage of the range in light and colour is like going from CRT 480P to 1080p LED back in the day, I fucking love when the little HDR icon in the corner of my screen clicks on the indicate that HDR content has been activated. Ghost of Tsushima is some of the best yet although with the weakest settings to adjust to your liking so you have to change either your TV settings manually or the in game slider based on the time of day which is a sacrifice that is worth it.

Been doing all my flat gaming on PS4 Pro, Xbox One X, and PC on my XBR75Z9D since 2016.

HRD is still getting its feet under it, but in the titles that do it right, it is absolutely amzing looking. I'm hoping for more consistantly great HDR implementations in next gen games.

My current set does 4K/60 at about 1600 Nits. I'll be looking to upgrade once the new consoles are out. and we get full (out of the box) HDMI 2.1 sets on the market, with 4K/120 or 8K/60 at 4000 Nits or better. I am in the Full Array LED camp over OLED, but ultimately, I'm looking forward to a CLEDIS or MicroLED.

I'm looking forward to seeing Ratchet and Clank Rift Apart and Forza Horizon 4 on PS5 and XBSX early on. Insomniac and Playground have both done very nice work with HDR in the current gen. Further down the road, I am interested in what Guerrilla does with Horizon Forbidden West, as HZD is still my favorite HDR game to date.

Stop hate, let others live the life they were given. Everyone has their problems, and no one should have to feel ashamed for the way they were born. Be proud of who you are, encourage others to be proud of themselves. Learn, research, absorb everything around you. Nothing is meaningless, a purpose is placed on everything no matter how you perceive it. Discover how to love, and share that love with everything that you encounter. Help make existence a beautiful thing.

Not yet. I do have HDR 4K TV but I mainly play on my monitor. I am planning to replace my monitor with an OLED TV soon enough though so I will probably try it out then.

I'd actually like an HDR monitor, but seeing as how poorly the tech is being supported on PC, I might just wait for a good OLED monitor and roll with that instead.

I do. I love my Q90R Samsung TV. Was expensive but worth it.

According to a new study; YouTube,, NeoGaf, N4G, VGChartz, IGN, GameSpot, GameStop, Facebook, Twitter, Amazon, All of Europe, FAMITSU, Japan, the rest of Asia and The whole of the Middle East among countless others are experiencing a Tsunami of people in love with Sony's gamings offerings.

Got a 65" 4K HDR LG-Something-or-other tele that I do all my console gaming on, and use HDR whenever possible... some games just look fucking gorgeous on it! For PC though I'm just using a 24" iiyama monitor, nothing special but it does the job.

None of the above. They don't make them small enough. So I'm sticking with my trusty 1080p.

Come on DP. First arcade@home and now here? Still posting on topics you know nothing about or have zero experience with? Lol

Ya, I upgraded to an LG C9 earlier this month, and it's honestly a more noticeable difference than I was expecting. Whether it's games that support 4k HDR, movies, or shows, I don't think I've looked at anything yet since I've had it where I didn't say "wow that's pretty" out loud to myself.
