At this point I have to agree with this. I just bought the C9 and have tried a few HDR enabled stuff but most of the time it looks the same or washed out. I felt Death Stranding had decent implementation, but I actually turned it off to see if I could notice a real difference and I forgot for hours on end to turn it back on without really noticing.
Dolby Vision (that's also a form of HDR right?) also seems like a complete crapshoot. I watched The Mandalorian and it looks like complete shit, completely washed out image. Though admittedly it's not much better with Dolby Vision off. Also re-watched The Last Jedi yesterday and ended up turning it off there (or rather I had to watch it on Xbox because you can't turn off Dolby Vision, which is crazy), it generally just gives a washed-out image. Maybe it's Disney+, I dunno.
I played RDR2 on PS4 with HDR on and the image looks slightly more washed-out than without HDR. Really only Death Stranding seemed to have a slightly better image, but so far I'm not impressed.
But again, I do believe I haven't watched anything with proper HDR yet, so maybe when I do see it in its proper glory I'll be a believer.
