    I ordered an C1 77" yesterday and now watching this 🥲



  2. Geremy Malone on August 26, 2021 at 10:24 pm

    I’m so going to buy it when I can pay my own stuff 💀

    I Like you but you are dead wrong, maybe because this video was posted on January.



  4. Charlies_Angels on August 26, 2021 at 10:25 pm

    Love your videos!! Also, it doesn’t hurt that you re pretty easy on the eyes as well. 😎😊🥰



  5. J Ryan on August 26, 2021 at 10:27 pm

    Already got the CX a few days back and I’m loving it. Expect/hope for it to last me until MicroLED becomes viable and affordable in the mass market as that would almost certainly be worth buying a new set for.



  6. Wilf's Wanderings on August 26, 2021 at 10:30 pm

    Lol, I’m mot even 1080p yet. Still running my old pioneer 55inch plasma…



  7. sinkiy on August 26, 2021 at 10:31 pm

    I just finally upgraded my led to lg c1 oled tv last month and now I hear miniled is coming ? Sigh…. Wtf



  8. Immersive Gaming on August 26, 2021 at 10:32 pm

    That didn’t age well lol. Mini Led from Samsung are the same price as C series OLED, they still have blooming, black crush and DSE…..



  9. Soul Goodman on August 26, 2021 at 10:33 pm

    TCL – liers. Hisense – treats EU customers as stupid idiots and scam them. Sony – downgrade from year to year. LG – bad contrast. Samsung same as sony. This video is useless, pitch-sales bullshit.



  10. bill clay on August 26, 2021 at 10:35 pm

    Wouldn’t own a LG out of warranty. OLED is nice to look at in best buy, but those prices will have to drop considerbly to become an impulse buy. You can get a lot of TV today for $400 – $800



  11. Wally and Ellen on August 26, 2021 at 10:35 pm

    I just have an old Pioneer Kuro plasma tv, still going well and the blacks really stand out.



  12. KSRB on August 26, 2021 at 10:36 pm

    I ordered an C1 77" yesterday and now watching this 🥲



  13. Farzad Mehrabi on August 26, 2021 at 10:40 pm

    20 inch Lg. CRT 😔



  14. NeroAngelo on August 26, 2021 at 10:42 pm

    Been rocking some Thomson 1080p panel for about 10 years now. Maybe it’s time for an upgrade.



  15. Mutley on August 26, 2021 at 10:42 pm

    I really don’t get this obsession with brightness lately, I have a 2020 HZ2000 OLED and never have my luminance above 70% and contrast at 80%, more than that and it burns my eyeballs out.



  16. Bebop 404 on August 26, 2021 at 10:43 pm

    Don’t like a bright picture, if you want a TV outside build a room for it so you can watch it properly. There is a reason Theaters are in dark rooms, hello people. Stop trying to defeat nature, you won’t win.



  17. Cesc Fabregas on August 26, 2021 at 10:46 pm

    i dont getwhy brightness of oleds is a big deal they are already bight enough.



  18. Gerhard Oosthuizen on August 26, 2021 at 10:46 pm

    Can we just get a gigabit lan port on all these high end TV’s!



  19. recoil669 on August 26, 2021 at 10:47 pm

    My 10 years old plasma died. It was good to me. Trying to get hyped about a replacement



  20. Tomas Ramoska on August 26, 2021 at 10:50 pm

    I enjoy my Samsung Neo QLED mini led tv. Very bright in my painted white living room. Also anti reflective coating helps reduce glare from two big windows.
    Nice bonus is ambient mode you can leave beautiful visual on tv screen all day and don’t need to worry about burn in.



  21. Callisto on August 26, 2021 at 10:50 pm

    What is the versict then? I want to buy something under 500… for one bed room apartment



  22. Mr Arweed on August 26, 2021 at 10:54 pm

    Please review tcl 825 mini led



  23. Valdimar Jonsson on August 26, 2021 at 10:54 pm

    2007 50” Panasonic plasma…. Still does the job, but looking to upgrade to a gallery series. Your video hasn’t changed my mind 😀



  24. JRock Ofages on August 26, 2021 at 10:54 pm

    got a 9" cathode ray tube and stuck in Honeymooners reruns…NORTON!!!!



  25. Ryand0523 on August 26, 2021 at 10:57 pm

    Okay, I still have an old Samsung ks8500, from 2016, though I am trying to figure out should I try a mini-led say an lg Qned or stick with a regular led, and go with the Sony x95j. I want a Dolby Vision tv, so Samsung is out of my consideration range, at the moment.



  26. Mandeep Digpal on August 26, 2021 at 10:58 pm

    Doesn’t have the same viewing angles as oled



  27. Captain Chats on August 26, 2021 at 10:58 pm

    Where’s the smaller TVs with oled and mini led ?



  28. TheKwod on August 26, 2021 at 10:59 pm

    How much brighter is a OLED over the best plasma?



  29. Jed's Tubes on August 26, 2021 at 11:00 pm

    Still using my 2011 1080p DLP projector on a 92" screen all for a little over 1k at the time. No need for 4k given the distance from the screen. Excellent color accuracy and gaming performance. Only thing lacking is the black levels but it’s a small tradeoff given the great image & size for so cheap.



  30. jimv1983 on August 26, 2021 at 11:04 pm

    I have a 2014 model OLED and I’ll never go back to a backlit TV again. At this point it’s OLED until MicroLED is a reasonable price.

    At just a note, MicroLEDs can also get burn in. It would be less likely than OLED but still very much possible. All types of lighting including incandescent, florescent, LED and OLED lose brightness the more they are used.



  31. Justin on August 26, 2021 at 11:05 pm

    Sony A90J.. well… nothing!! True blacks and infinite contrast just looks too damn good in a dark room gaming environment like mine. Unless those MicroLED’s can do the same for cheaper, only way for me to switch



  32. les truth on August 26, 2021 at 11:05 pm

    all these new screens for the ultimate viewing experience but all the programs and films are crap in the UK



  33. The Tech Chap on August 26, 2021 at 11:07 pm

    Hey Chaps! Reckon you’ll upgrade your TV this year?? (and if so.. to what?)



  34. Zain Uddin on August 26, 2021 at 11:07 pm

    I find the c1 bright enough at a point it doesn’t bloom



  35. Jean P. on August 26, 2021 at 11:08 pm

    my tv is the UN50NU6900 / UN50NU6900FXZA.

    It’s a cheap LED tv that cost $400. In my current situation, I don’t need an expensive tv. Anything over $1000 dollars is too much for me currently. I just wanted to experience 4K. I was not disappointed with this tv.
    In the future, I would like to upgrade to a QLED. I’m hoping they’ll be a lot cheaper in 10 years.



  36. yozpay ozpay on August 26, 2021 at 11:08 pm

    Do not buy an LG TV worst brand in the world even expensive ones breaks with in 6 months to an Year I swear



  37. Derren Gearing on August 26, 2021 at 11:08 pm

    Thinking about upgrading to LG C1 at the moment due to picture and its gaming support for the PS%



  38. Sivashankar Chandrasekhar on August 26, 2021 at 11:09 pm

    That was a great video. But with all the oled tvs you are reviewing I don’t see you reviewing panasonic oleds. I recently bought one and I think it is the brightest of all of the 2020 oled tvs out there and it has all the hdr formats that there are. May I please know why?



  39. Silver Mirai on August 26, 2021 at 11:10 pm

    My tv broke after 2 years and a month, warranty was for 2 years, I feel like they’re purposefully making them break



  40. Robert Risch on August 26, 2021 at 11:11 pm

    If you watch a lot of 4:3 material with black (sometimes white) bars on the side, might you cause burn-in on a OLED TV?



  41. M Viv on August 26, 2021 at 11:12 pm

    Useless video. No one keeps his lg OLED at 100 % luminous level. Its at 70 to 80 % in most settings and the brightness level is kept at 50 %. All this talk of less brightness is hogwash.



  42. Mark Holmes on August 26, 2021 at 11:14 pm

    Went for 65inch CX. Not solely due to Pic although that’s fantastic, but for the sound it offers as standard. Due to our room setup we only sit about 3 metres from screen and aren’t trying to fill an entire house with sound. Didn’t want a sound bar or external speaker setup. Found the CX sound to be far better then my last Samsung tv including it’s expensive soundbar! I think you’d be crazy to go micro or mini LED at the moment (if you can afford). Wait until it’s a little more mature and they’ve ironed out potential issues. I’d say it won’t be until 2025



  43. Cesc Fabregas on August 26, 2021 at 11:15 pm

    good mini led tvs are not even cheaper than oleds



  44. Chechatonga on August 26, 2021 at 11:16 pm

    Mmm i really want an oled but I’ll mostly be using it for gaming. Should I not even bother and get something else?



  45. KSRB on August 26, 2021 at 11:17 pm

    I ordered an C1 77" yesterday and now watching this 🥲



  46. Jonathan Parker on August 26, 2021 at 11:19 pm

    I am loving my 75" LG 75QNED99UPA TV. I’ve never had an OLED so I can’t compare. But this TV is amazed. Phenomenal blacks, natural colors, great contrast, an overall great TV.



  47. ASMR Food Bank on August 26, 2021 at 11:19 pm

    U could get 42 hookers for $6k instead of a stupid tv



  48. Shawn on August 26, 2021 at 11:20 pm

    75” led tv’s in living rooms and 48” cx oled on my computer.



  49. Jordan on August 26, 2021 at 11:21 pm

    What’s the difference between buying from Amazon or best buy? Price is about $500 difference for the oled



  50. James Foster on August 26, 2021 at 11:21 pm

    3:31….i want to know what settings you use! My series X looks nothing like that what so ever, but instead dull and greyed out. Naff.
