Try out these setting for a start. YMMV as every panel is different, as is every room.

Thanks for the information and please post some more updates after you have watched some more movies. If you get a chance can you try a couple of DVD's. I'd like to know your thoughts on DVD's.

Does anyone know when the BF prices are likely to take effect? Might it be over the weekend or sometime next week?

So we watched The Avengers last night, I have watched around 30 UHD's on a 4K SDR tv over the last few years but this was the first with an HDR capable display and WOW! The special effects and colors were amazing, was not expecting that dramatic of a difference really expected it to be more of a subtle improvement. So I'm very pleased with the picture quality some of the scenes did indeed make me squint! Even the wife said she noticed the picture improvement and bright special effects.

Gonna watch X-Men Apocalypse next, maybe one of my other titles in Dolby Vision to check that out but pretty stoked with the new display!

Just got my 900F yesterday and got it set up. I was coming from the Z9F as I feel it wasn't quite where it should be from a quality control perspective (light bleeding along edges, weird zone lighting stuff going on in very specific scenarios, and even a little light leakage along the bottom of the screen).

Considering this TV is half the price of the Z9F, it's comparable. I watch in a pitch black environment almost exclusively, so this TV gets bright enough for my needs when HDR is involved.

The Z9F does some things better, other things worse. For example, the light bar bleed is far worse on the Z9F. In actual on-screen content though, blooming was better in certain respects on the 900F, but in others blooming was also worse. I feel like the Z9F did better with bright stuff against a black background. When it came to bright stuff against a normal picture, the 900F has better overall light uniformity in that respect.

My 900F has one small spot with dirty screen stuff going on. However, it's not noticeable in most my usage in my first 24 hours. I did a torture test with the foggy sequence near the beginning of Blade Runner 2049, and I can see it. But otherwise, it really hasn't been noticeable while watching 2001 on 4K UHD with HDR, nor has it been noticeable while playing PvZ Garden Warfare 2 or Cuphead. Even with Sea of Thieves, I really need to be looking for it in order to see it. Other than the one small spot though, this panel is uniform, and doesn't really have me missing the uniformity of the Z9F too much.

I feel like the trade-off between the Z9F to the 900F was well worth it. No doubt the Z9F is a monster in many respects (in a good way), but the price differential considering how well the 900F performs, for my money, means the 900F is the better buy. Also coming from the Z9F, I actually do appreciate the uptick in native contrast on the 900F.

Despicable Me in Dolby vision was not quite as impressive but good to know DV works on my setup, a logo came up briefly at the beginning but otherwise just shows HDR on TV. The players display info showed it but I think it's forced with the X700 when you turn it on.

This one isn't in DV(it's HDR10) but definitely shows off HDR, Lego Batman.
