    Hey all,

    I went out and got a new Sony 43XF8096 at the weekend, the picture is outstanding. However my TV seems to have some clouding on the right hand side, the rest of the panel is fine.

    I was watching Godless last night on Netflix HDR and it really stood out in some dark scenes. I’m scared to exchange incase I get a worse one next.

    Using HDR on a TV with an IPS panel is never going to be ideal because IPS panels let more light through from behind.

    I think the 49" version may use a VA panel so should be better in this respect.

    If you get another 43" version you'll get another IPS panel and take a gamble if its better or worse. It won't be too better or too worse probably just because unfortunately it's one of the downsides of the panel tech.
