Color Gamut

Do you guys consider the color gamut when choosing LED/OLED TV or Projectors?
Won't the HDR stuff be pointless if the display color gamut is not wide enough, correct?
I guess there are no BT.2020 home displays that exist today, do you target DCI-P3?
Thoughts?

** Just trying to figure out what to look out for as I plan the display upgrade.

Never go into that deep and advance level detail adjustment one lah...
I depend on different materials to adjust the perfect color of my screen. Having both NTSC and PAL medias and rotate among one another, i hv to make a general adjustment such that when i pop either discs in playback, the awkwardness of color disturbance is minimized.

Reason for starting this topic...at home I have a Dell PremiereColor display (full AdobeRGB gamut) for my photo editing. The picture colours are so darn life like, from skin tones, flowers, scenery.

My current HT display is plasma, so I guess it is sRGB gamut only.

If I upgrade my HT display, considering future HDR content, that’s why I ask about color gamut. Somehow the display color gamut is seldom a topic discussed here....

Stationary Image editing and Motion Image always seems to be... different?
Back to the topic of HT basics, PAL and NTSC color can never... look well with one setting. So no matter u r upgrading into LED or OLED or even projection, color presentation will be affected by environments' lighting interference.
For close to PLASMA performance, OLED is the best i seen out there. But, in the place where the OLED is placed, sometime the color can look a little off if interfered by DayLight that shines through the window during sundown time. The yellow light... OLED/LED cannot fight.

with HDR, it's colour volume that is more important, rather than just colour gamut.  rtings.com does a good job measuring this for all the TVs that they review (which is quite a lot).
