When one is shopping for a new TV, do take note of the potential minefields out there.
Terms like HDR (high-dynamic range) and DV (Dolby Vision) are splashed all over the specs or the brochures rather carelessly.

Just be aware that it can be a slightly artificial feature..

Why so?


Eg a minimum for HDR is about 500 nits. Ideally you should get a TV that can go up to 1000 nits.
DV is capable of showing 10000 nits.

So please temper your expectations when you see such terms like HDR and DV on TVs. You may see the tag light up on your TV, but the results may be disappointing. Now you know why.

Look out for real reviews and measurements. Websites like Rtings do real measurements that can help with your decision process.
