I would be buying one for any monitor that large. Stands lack the security and sturdiness of a mounted arm unless the TV monitor is against the wall.

I just tried HDR+ in the service menu and it makes the image quality worse than just using the regular HDR.

Thanks OP.

Just picked one up as a 4K monitor last week. Price matched today to 369$. What a steal. Sharp as a tack at 4:4:4 and overall pretty impressed. A little bit of VA smearing when moving dark lines on a white background, but I'm picking at straws here. Overall a HUGE upgrade over my old U2711 Dell Ultrasharp it is replacing. Likely keeping it.

Question: Could you give a little more info about the HDR+? I can't seem to find much on Reddit (or elsewhere) about the service menu and the pros and cons about using HDR+ or not. Does it overall look better than regular HDR?

One person in this Samsung thread says it's a "faux HDR mode" and makes thing look worse. What's your experience?

Anyone use this with an Apple TV? Can the remote app on iPhone turn it on AND control tv volume (via CEC)?

Agreed, and the manufacturers are sooooo freaking cheap that these lightweight props are even infiltrating the smaller displays.

I know it's cheaper to make and takes less space in the box (primary reasons they are so popular) but it's just junk that you can't use without a massive stand.

Certainly not the old rectangular stands as the OP is referring to - those mini-prop pieces-of-junk are insanely unsafe and would tip over with a strong breeze.

Exactly...looking to replace an old crt tv in my in-laws kitchen, no room for massive stand.

The only way to do it easily, and still have flexibility to use it where ever you want, is to buy an old school stand from Amazon for $40.

I did that with my UHD 32" Acer, as I hated the silver "lady feet" stand it came with, and cost aside, it's exactly what I wanted.

Went to Costco to buy it, then saw the TCL 50" model with the same specs (4k, HDR, 120hz rr) but no HDR+ and it has Roku. For 400$, I don't know the TCL brand but 40$ for 10" more seems like a good deal.

Can't find it on the Costco Canada website but it seems to be this one: https://www.costco.com/TCL-50%22-Class- ... 57633.html

Does anyone have experience with TCL?

If you are using this tv as computer monitor then HDR+ might not do much for you!

For over the air tv, HDR+ works great!

As a monitor, the NU7100 is better, it's better as a TV too, but the difference isn't as big there.

If you're happy with the TCL, that's all that matters.

Yep, they should take care of it, especially since it was so recent.

Question for those that use this as a monitor connected to your computer. Does the TV power off when the computer shutsdown/go-into-sleep-mode? Or do you have to manually switch the TV on/off?
