From 720p straight to 4k

Got this tv from HH last week. It was one sale for $699. With free shipping and 10% off coupon for new customers I got it for around $672. This tv is worth every penny. As soon as you turn it on you know that you have a premium product. The menu selections, the startup guide is all very well thought out and very top notch. So I’ll go step by step now about.
Stand: The stand is interesting. It is a v shape that attaches to the bottom of the tv involving around 8 screws. It is very strong however I don’t necessarily trust it. I know a team or crack professionals and smart people designed this to work but just how the tv floats there is kind of concerning. The tv is a little wobbly BUT its only if you walk up and poke it. I plan on mounting this next week. I have nieces under the age of 10 and I do not trust them to not touch the tv or bump into the stand. (they are some ruff girls lol).
Mounting: I plan on mounting the tv with a VideoSecu ML531BE. Now the vesa holes on the tv are pretty deep. None of the screws that came with the mounting bag were long enough. However, and I don’t know whether this came from the tv box or mounting bow, there was a small ziploc baggie of 4 perfect screws. I think they are around M8x21 or 22. Just long enough for the tv. I’m pretty sure they came with the tv but by the time I noticed them everything was mixed together. The mounting plate fits perfectly on the back of the tv with the extensions. It doesn’t cover up any ports since they are all to the side.
Remote: This does come with the smart remote. We use an antenna for local channels since we don’t watch much tv. So we don’t have a bajillion channels to surf through. If that’s you I would suggest a universal remote. I’d be pissed not having a number pad. The remote does control my Apple tv 4. When I turn the tv off the AT4 turns off too, so I really don’t need the apple remote except for voice controls.
OS: The tv operating system is snappy. I haven’t had any hang-ups, freezes or sluggish performance. I love the web browser. I can finally watch my html live news sites. Flash doesn’t work. Wifi is strong btw.
Video: The video is great. It is the best video I’ve had on a tv. I used the following settings:
Picture Mode: Natural
Sound Mode: Movie
Picture Size 16:9 Standard
Picture settings under expert settings:
Dig Clean View- Auto
Auto Motion Plus- OFF weird smooth moving obvious and distracting. You do get the ability to manually edit this option.
Dynamic Contrast- Med
Color Tone- Standard
