Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great picture and aound quallity Great TV from the start, the 3D makes for intense gaming without the VR headaches, Even or PS3 did a auto update and auto up scaled instantly, as a unknown bonus we discovered the gaming split screen options for some great game night fun with friends,

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sounds really nice Bought it a month ago and sounds really nice and has decent bass, the bass speaker plug is made of plastic so be real carefully with it as it does not hold the wires very well but simply push wires back in and it self attaches so I found out but problem could of been delivery person in a hurry, kinda short speaker wires but easy to extend, sounds great listening to Jazz and the 80s rock collections, I have it connected to my LG 4k tv via Bluetooth and has no audio delay but it's not a surround sound so keep that in mind.

I’m confused by the hdmi. I have both the PS4 pro and Xbox one x but this tv has two different hdmi ports that gets me confused on what they do. Hdmi supports 2.2 but the hdmi port 3 supports the deep color option. Which one supports 4K?

Asked by: Mokisme2
Hello, they all support 4K, just turn ULTRA HD Deep Color setting to On for your Xbox One X. ^AC
