    It sounds like you're waiting for specific 4K HDR content as there's tons of 4K HDR content already that's easily accessible.

    Also, the same concept I applied to HDMI 2.1-capable sets' proficiency in displaying content that doesn't require that spec also applies to 4K HDR sets. A TV that is proficient at 4K HDR is inherently going to be excellent when displaying normal HD content. My "placeholder" 55" is just OK at HDR due to limited max brightness, but Blu-rays, games and other HD content look absolutely fantastic on it. It's not a bad thing to have a TV that has capabilities that exceed the fidelity of the source material.

    I don't see the need for content requiring a certain feature set as a compelling reason to hold off buying a TV that supports that feature set if that TV is also better at displaying content that doesn't require that feature set.

    flatpanelshd say that Samsung will be adding Freesync and HDMI 2.1 VRR support to some of their 2018 model year TVs and had a live demonstration at a tech seminar in Milan. This is pretty big news and yet flatpanelshd are the only source I can find for this at the moment, so take with an appropriate dose of salt.

    Thanks @Jay for 2nd source:



    NU8000 @ 49" has a $999 MSRP, BTW.

    The M-series is a good buy right now, but the input lag is just a tad high :(, used to be around 40ms and even went up to 47 with a recent FW update. That's the main reason the TCL was better than the Vizio M-series last year.

    Slickdeals showed Costco had/has the 65" (!) Vizio M-series on sale in recent days for $699 for example. It's Vizio and TCL and that's it on the inexpensive side with decent brightness.

    My former 1080P TV was a Vizio and for a non videophile, I loved it. So I would definitely go back to Vizio.

    And with AMD FreeSync! It's not clear to me if it's just FS1 or FS2, but I cant imagine any new display would be only support FS1 and not FS2.

    Do they throw in some sunglasses?
