With the newly revised consoles being released soon everyone wants to jump the bandwagon and purchase a new HDR TV, before you do I thought I'd create this thread to help users understand why this may be a bad idea. Good TVs for gaming typically have two main factors that determine their suitability; Input Lag Motion Blur Typically for normal viewing, televisions apply processing to the picture to create a better viewing experience for normal content like films or TV for example. This processing increases the time it takes to display a picture on a TV and therefore introduces a lot of input lag. To reduce the input lag TV manufactures all have their own "Game Mode" setting. All game mode usually does is disable these processing features therefore speeding up the display of the image. In many cases game mode also affects other settings you cannot touch yourself, therefore for any gamer, game mode is essential. With HDR gaming this changes a lot. Today's televisions were manufactured before HDR consoles were released, therefore they didn't think how they would implement HDR for gamers. In the case of the Samsung KS7000 for example, this means that HDR mode cannot be used in its game mode. It can only be used in movie mode. For the Samsung this increases lag from 20.9 ms too 113.5 ms. Very noticeable to even casual gamers and especially bad for games requiring quick response, FPS shooters, football games etc. Thanks to @++ Jase ++ for his email from Samsung: So none of Samsungs UHD TV's will do HDR without reduced input lag. That is at least the KS7/8 and 9 series. Edit# updated news from Samsung in the form of a tweet. Thanks to @tazmago https://mobile.twitter.com/HDTVTest/status/77385927805051699 So how will other TV's cope with HDR gaming? Who knows. I doubt even the manufactures do until they start to see users with problems, or we start to see HDR gamers on here with similar problems. What I can say is, don't buy a HDR TV now and expect HDR to work with game mode and certainly don't expect any manufacturer to update their TV to work around it. As far as we know there could be hardware limitations with HDR (such as LEDs having to get brighter) for HDR TV's that may mean that TVs will never reach a low input lag level with HDR enabled regardless of whether they work in game mode or not. Until we start to see reviews and users reporting back when playing HDR games on the new consoles we just won't know. Hold tight and weather the HDR storm, next year may be a better time to buy a HDR TV anyway with new TV's usually being released around spring time onward. There's more to a HDR TV than a SDR TV for gaming than I've been able to explain here anyway and I hope next year will give us a better choice of good HDR TV's that can actually display HDR well rather than just read the data at a lower price point. Edit# I'll try to compile links as I see them, but this so far seems to be a good resource for HDR gaming. They state the Panasonic models this year allow decent gaming lag even with HDR enabled: Digital Foundry: the best 4K TVs for HDR gaming I would say that their mid range and lower range recommendations are the best of perhaps a bad bunch. The Panasonic DX-750 and especially the DX-700 don't have good local dimming and don't get bright enough for a good HDR picture. They do a good job of reading HDR and displaying it on their panels but they don't have the hardware to show HDR as it's supposed to be seen. For this you need to spend a lot more.
