What sort of HDR experience should I expect to get from this TV, specifically combined with a Sony X700?

I have read about a number of worrying issues with HDR that are apparently display dependent. Goodfellas in HDR for example looks very poor on certain displays. I've researched the reasons why but I've been unable to figure out which displays would produce the problem. Would the E6?

Dolby Vision is also apparently very problematic on some displays, specifically a raised blacks issue? Is this something I would expect to suffer from with the E6? I ask because I understand the E6 is not a very bright TV, and that I should not expect much when it comes to bright HDR scenes, and that instead DV would give better results overall, even forced DV in some cases. But this seems pointless if DV ruins the black levels on certain displays, especially an OLED, which is sort of the whole point...
I don't have a 3D OLED TV, but reading from the people who do, it's the best 3D experience ever from an OLED TV...the last of the Mohicans...2016 LG OLED 3D model, near top in line...E6. We are in 2019, I thought they didn't sell 2016 models anymore? You found one on eBay, a used one from a friend, one in a pawnshop, in storage, ...?

Check in the LG E6 3D OLED TV 4K UHD HDR thread where the owners share their experience with passive 1080p 3D ... like here @ forum.blu-ray.dot.com/

Lucky if you get a brand new LG OLED HDR 3D TV from 2016. If LG was still making those but with the 2019 more advanced technology they would probably rule the world. ...More than all the oil, guns, telecommunication network (5G cells) industries combined together.

It's very easy to do business in the UK, in France, anywhere in the world where they are open for real business...(((3D)))
Wherever there are Blu-ray 3D releases, I will be there! . Wait a moment! Didn’t you say you don’t care about disc releases? Less plastic in the world is a good thing in Your book?

Thanks for the posts by the way.
Tom Cruise intensely researches the role and experiences as much as he can firsthand, so as to make the characters he plays better for audiences, e.g. from last September - https://twitter.com/chaosinhere/stat...12261146521600

I eventually saw Star Wars 17 times in the theater. So no need to go into detail of my impressions here, on the beauty of the Alita movie.

My general comments: I saw this movie twice in IMAX 3D last week and today in a new theater with a laser projector, 2D, and Atmos sound. I thoroughly enjoyed the 3D presentation. Today’s 2D presentation took it to another level however. The screen was much brighter than the 3D and the detail that could be seen in Alita’s face and the texture of her clothes was just phenomenal. I certainly believe it will be even better on a high end 4K display. I also liked the Dolby Atmos sound better than the IMAX sound.

So Salty’s rating on a scale of one to five:

IMAX 3D , laser projection 2D , and my eventual home experience

4K and Dolby Vision and HDR you can stream.
3D ... try to stream 3D on Netflux, YouTube, HBO, Amazon Prime Video, Hulu, Vudu, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Google, FOX, ...

* Plastic as in 4K BR players made by Samsung. ...To be more exactly precise in the context I said it in that exact time frame.

No I am a phan of fysical discs, no doubt...4K, 3D, BR, SACD, BR Audio, DVD Audio, LP, CD, HDCD, 33, 45, 15, ... Maxwell.

Tom Cruise is worth way more money than the film director of 'Cold War' who cannot afford color cameras and is monitoring on old 4:3 screen aspect ratio monitors.
Even his actors couldn't get into one language for all; he had to let them all speak their own languages...six of them all together in his film.

Carbon Black would probably never fly anyway, unlike Maverick.
Those Navy guys sure well know how to make/invent fake stories on Facebook and Twitter.
It's a good thing that they have Navy officials to direct them in the proper order.
Discipline is important on a Navy ship, very.

No doubt you are noticing the same statistics than I do.

My guess: HDR certainly as it is the main title, but more importantly your positive feedback on all things fun in life, including Top Gun: Maverick, your educative and fun insights, the good contributers/members/readership who all appreciate all good stuff, filmmaking, moving pictures, fighter jets, behind the scenes, photos, videos, articles, great links, humorous lines and YouTube videos, somehow all chain related together in a spirit of harmony, good camaraderie, smart advancement in living life happy and more knowledgeable.

Penton-Man you are number one and you encourage team work.
That @ the end is what pays off, what brings a large audience to your positive vision sharing all things HDR and beyond.

That's my best guess.

Both Penton Man and Bruce are huge contributors. No doubt about that. Both offering different but equally interesting content.

They are both avant-gardistes in the visuel evolution of best moving pictures on all levels...HDR and 8K included. It suits everyone else with a similar vision.
