Good review, however according to the spec sheet on Sony’s website this OLED display does not support HDR10+ technology. Only standard HDR10, HLG, and Dolby Vision. However the review mentions the HDR10+ feature which is either incorrect information or Sony just came out with a firmware update to offer HDR10+. To make matters worse it is my understanding that 100% of all consumer displays in the United States do not offer both Dolby Vision and HDR10+ from the exact same display. If one wants both they have to own two separate displays.

I don't know if I fully agree with him saying they're too close to call. I think for the average consumer the pictures are virtually identical with no clear favorite, but there are other factors. For one I've read a number of negative reviews on LG's ARC and how there is this issue and that- sound quits, fades in and out, etc. Also, and this is a big one, LG compresses their signal to PCM through ARC, rendering a good 5.1 almost useless. Finally, the Sony includes Netflix Director's Cut, which I understand really takes full advantage of a good 5.1+ and OLED TV like the Sony.
