Dolby Vision is a proprietary form of HDR, requiring TCL or whomever to pay for the licensing fee. There is also HDR10 which is non-proprietary, which Samsung and others use as their form of HDR. If it says it has HDR but isn't Dolby Vision its HDR10, which is still true HDR.

It can justify the extra money .

The s401,s403,s405 are the same...as shown here..

here's all the pertinent info on HDR10 and Dolby Vision.

http://www.techradar.com/news/hdr...format-war


Dolby Vision is more future proof with higher nits, 12 bit color depth. HDR10 will be fine for 90% of the public. Most TVs cannot even display full HDR (besides a few higher end models like my KS9000) but you at least get a semblance of what all the fuss is about. I also own a Hisense and it's similar to this TV and at this price you really can't complain.

Any thoughts or reviews? I hesitated to get one of the $250 4k sets a few months back because I want HDR (albeit, on the cheap). Wondering if the HDR on this set can justify the additional expenditure.

I have the 49S405 and it's a great TV. The Roku UI is super fast and easy to use. I don't use my Shield TV anymore. It's just a Plex server now. lol

I think this is hot @ $400, I also like the Roku integration ($60 saving?) and their remote...

However I cannot decide how much I trust TCL as a brand. They have a spotty reliability history (see 3 year consumer satisfaction) and I'm not convinced this displays HDR 10 (since it is vague on that point, and specifically avoids calling it Dolby Vision, whereas their P range is Dolby Vision).

It keeps on saying in the spec that the TV supports HDR 10 "format." Supporting a format and displaying that format accurately are apples and oranges.

FWIW, I have a 2016 43" TCL 4K with built-in Roku in my office (doubles as a monitor) and I love it. Definitely love built-in Roku compared to other smart TV platforms.
