    I have a Sony now but it's the midrange 4K HDR set from 2016 https://www.rtings.com/tv/reviews/sony/x800d I'll be getting the X900F when it comes out for sure.

    One thing I learned about Standard mode is that it has much greater input lag than Game mode. 109 ms. in Standard mode, and < 35 for Game mode or Graphics mode (Game mode and Graphics mode apparently are the only two modes with low input lag).

    I figured all the talk about input lag was an exaggeration or something I wouldn't notice, but when I switched back and forth between Standard and Game mode, it was very obvious to me. There was a much slower response in Standard mode.

    So, the better fix, I've learned, is to use Graphics mode. The only issue there is, you'll need to tweak the settings so they match whatever your preferences are, because the initial settings look kind of flat (at least they did to me). I just plugged in the settings I was using for Game mode into Graphics mode. That gives you a picture just as good, with low input lag.

    Yeah your set is higher end than mine, with mine the input lag isn't all that bad even in standard mode at 49ms. I did try game mode recently and I don't notice much in the way of input lag but I did notice they crank the color setting up higher than it is in standard mode.

    Yeah, that input lag (49) is better than on my set (109). That probably wouldn't be enough to notice a difference (49 vs. 35) in Game mode.

    I used rtings' suggestions to set up my TV. I've got my Color level set to 55.

    I find it's better to use calibrations suggested by experts, because otherwise, I keep tinkering with it, never really knowing if I'm making it better or just messing it up. If I use calibrations by the experts, then I just set it and leave it alone.

    Now that I have my new PC built I'm back to looking at getting a 4K TV. Right now still between this one or an LG OLED. Originally thinking 55" but I currently have a 50" plasma and doing measurements, even with a thinner bezel, a 55" TV is only like 3 inches wider than my current TV. Think I can make the room for a 65". If that's the case then an OLED will probably be a bit out of my range. Either way going to wait for the new models since it's so close.

    So I tried a regular BR yesterday for the first time and I noticed that the Mastered in 4K was either greyed out(but on) or it says only available if a 1080 signal is the source or something...since my BR player is either the PS4 or X,I tried a few things but its always greyed out or off...isn'it better anyway to have the TV upscale the movie to 4K,instead of changing the settings on the PS4 for example to output 1080p and turn Mastered in 4K on...?
