HDR on or Off?

Definitely ON.
I play on the LG OLED55C7V.
Everything is just more vibrant with it on and the sun feels like itís actually shining

BUT it depends on your tv. Older models with the first HDR integration often have lower nits so the game will not look as good with HDR on and could indeed make the screen darker. HDR is all about the wide range between the brightest a tv can get and how dark (Oled obviously the best is this regard) it can get. If your tv cant push out a high amount of nits HDR will indeed make it darker.

Re: HDR on or Off?

Fully agree with Lastactionhero.

HDR definately ON!
Colors pop and are just much more vibrant. Big difference compared to hdr off.

I'm playing on a Samsung QE65Q9FN and it's just gorgeous.

Definitely keep it on! For people saying it gets darker, just give your eyes some time to adjust. Much more photo realistic and overall better contrast and a much better balance across the board.

Re: HDR on or Off?

My LG B7 had a 'whoa' type of difference when turning on HDR -- in a good way!

When I bought my TV I went to a forum with TV nerds (i think it was avsforum). They had a good starting point for fine-tuning your TV's color settings. Obviously panel to panel it differs, but gave me a great starting point. Not sure if that plays a part, but if you are getting worse results with HDR on, that might be a place to start.

Re: HDR on or Off?

I play with mine off. With HDR on, the players have a ghostly white outline on their uniforms. Iím sure its fixable if I fool around with it, but the HDR on also has been hurting my eyes.

So on my Sony TV, when I turn HDR, I put it on game mode but soon as I enable the live football option it goes to the sports setting. I guess it doesnít really matter on or off, your getting a pretty good picture either way. Iím gonna see what playing on the sharpest (4k) setting looks and feels like.

That white ghostly outline your talking about is called ďbloomĒ itís implemented at a developer level. In most PC games you can turn it off but console games rarely give these options.
