That’s the problem. Quite obvious if the panel has problem rendering black when you fire up the YouTube app. My old Sony TV don’t feel grey when rendering true black.

Theoretically Direct Backlit should provides more even brightness however the actual result varies across different models from various TV makers, so it is really hard to say which is better. It is better to check out the reviews of each model.

GX800 from Panasonic supplied locally is using IPS panel, IMO not really suitable if you intend to use the TV to watch HDR contents or movies with lots of dark scenes. IPS panel has great viewing angle however the contrast ration is very poor, so black color would turn out to be more like gray.

All 4k tvs have upscaling ability to some extent in order to fill up 1080p content onto the whole of our 4k tv screen. The question is are the upscaling ability good or not?
IMHO usually for movies, those brands with direct involvement in movie productions usually have better upscaling logarithms.
Does TCL have good upscaling ability? Maybe their high end ones which are not available locally does...but for the ones we have here..I dont think so. And I dont expect them to have because of the price we pay for them.
In other words, r u saying that normally it's the high end tv models that have gd upscaling ability?
