Looks good. I am also looking at a TV...to be ready for PS5! But my xiaomi 75 TV is only 2 years old. But I regret. No real HDR and refresh rate sucks. Also got tearing when playing game with my rtx 2080. Sian. But was cheap then so... Also all the apps inside cannot use due to China firewall

And the Netflix app is SD quality! Imagine... really regret man.

Gotta play from my laptop then got 4K. Sigh.
I am on Xiaomi tv 65Ē for the past 4 years.
Recently I did a factory reset and disconnect internet from the TV.

The tv no longer feel laggy. As for entertainment wise just get a android box or Apple TV to watch HD 4K contents and make the Xiaomi tv into a dumb tv

You should share this info in the Xiaomi thread
Sometimes getting the most budget set isnít the best idea ..
the older xiaomi variants dont have netflix 4k compatibility. the newer ones are fine.

i have a xiaomi mi tv 4S 65 inch that came out this year. Netflix has HDR and 4k support.

For me standard is good... vivid too bright, the other modes look funny LOL.
HDR is a different set of modes though.

so far i have no regrets with this TV.. only really minor complain is the screenbleed that is very apparent in black scenes..
another issue now is next time if want to upgrade, who will buy this TV and the huge transport issue

Enjoy the TV la... people don't really sell their TVs...
Get a Spears and Munsil disc, it's worth the investment to calibrate your TV..
Or pay someone to do so, but that's going to cost a few hundred bucks...

the definition is all over google but for me, the color contrast is much much better with HDR.. most noticeably when playing Game pass 'Ori' where the HDR makes a huge difference

Trust me, you can see it if you have a good set..
I had a pro do it, and it is very sweet.
Add 1600 nits worth of HDR, Dolby Vision and you are in a different world...

If you are willing to pay around a quarter of your TV price..
That's why I say, getting a disc is cheaper...

Is there a place to get the disc locally? Amazon doesn't seem to ship the item here.
