The UM6900PUA Series is compatible with HDR 10-enhanced content, allowing images to come to life on screen in fleshed-out detail and intensified colors. It’s not as good as Dolby Vision HDR, but HDR 10 is still four times better than generic HDR. Where it differentiates itself from the pack is its main selling point — the use of an IPS display. With this instead of VA, you’re getting highly accurate colors and the widest viewing angles available in a 180-degree area, allowing you to seat yourself anywhere you want and still get the best view in the house. The contrasts aren’t as deep and there is some mild desaturation, but it’s not a deal-breaker by any means.

Although its basic user interface is a bit lacking — the HBO Max home screen is essentially a “featured content” page accompanied by your own to-watch list, and you need to navigate out of it for genre-specific lists, for example — sifting through the library of shows and films feels more rewarding than it does with competitors’ overstuffed, limited, or all-too-similar libraries. The wide net that WarnerMedia casts with its multimedia properties is put to good use in HBO Max. … [Read more...] about HBO Max hands-on impressions: A rough start, but plenty of potential
