    Will Panasonic ever come back to USA Market? I’d love to get their TV over Koreans or even Sony

  2. Cambodian tire slave on October 5, 2021 at 8:20 am

    Fuck. Just bought a Samsung q90t. Gonna save my money and sell it at the end of the year and get the LG G1

    Hi Vincent (@HDTVTest) what’s in your opinion the most sturdy and non-wobbly 120HZ 4k OLED TV? I just got my LG C1 and was kinda disappointed by how much it wobbles when touched. Anything else was perfect. I just wonder if other TV manufacturers have sturdier builds.

    Hello from Germany 🇩🇪 Are here people who speak German? Is a Mini LED the Best because no Burn in?

  5. Butter Man on October 5, 2021 at 8:22 am

    The fact the Sony OLED only has 2 HDMI 2.1 turns me off. The LG CX even had 4 ports.

  6. Tigerex966 on October 5, 2021 at 8:24 am

    Panasonic quality
    Most versatile lg

  7. madpwnz on October 5, 2021 at 8:28 am

    Well the Panasonic support dobly vision and hdr10+ i think this is the most important..

  8. Mikhail Nakko on October 5, 2021 at 8:30 am

    is there any particular reason no one is mentioning hisense? their dual layer tv and updated laser TV sound very promising at least on paper.

  9. Winnetou on October 5, 2021 at 8:32 am

    That’s what kind of non-professionalism in the review. I have to look at his face, not the displays.

  10. Michael P on October 5, 2021 at 8:32 am

    Our experience using the 2020 Samsung 75Q80T with a cable box has been that certain channels and content are unwatchable due to Judder. Also, Fifty percent of the time when a scene changes the picture stutters for a half second as if it is figuring out again how to best decode the signal. This issue does not occur on any of our other TVs when hooked up to the same cable box for comparison. So, it is all the Q80T causing the problem. Through Netflix, everything was good, but 95% of our watching is through cable, so we were, shall I say, somewhat upset a $3,350 TV has these issues. I have never seen judder like this before on any TV, ever, in 50 years of TV watching. In fact, I didn’t even know what judder was until we had the Samsung 75Q80T. For an example see: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j8e8Cs8unCE

    but LG did have an 88" OLED in 2020, which wud make it larger than the current 83" by Sony

  12. D.K. Börner on October 5, 2021 at 8:35 am

    Vincent, your tv testing channel is the best on YouTube, but please let me give you an advise. You often say the same things several times. It will make your videos much more professional, if you say everything only once. Shortening is always a good strategy. Best wishes, Konstantin

  13. david doggy on October 5, 2021 at 8:37 am

    I’m still watching my 2008 Sony Bravia WCG CCFL .

  14. Trojan0304 on October 5, 2021 at 8:38 am

    Battle of the 85s, vizio vs TCL

  16. walmartpimp2 on October 5, 2021 at 8:44 am

    Hello, I am considering getting a 77" 4K LG G1 or a 75" 8K Samsung QN900A. I would plan on having the TV in a room that is somewhat brightly lit most of the time. Also I am not worried about burn in should I go with the OLED, for I already have a C9 and CX, and I’ve never had issues before. Later down the line I plan on getting a Sony A1 and/or a Blackmagic Ursa Mini Pro 12K camera, so I would have access to plenty of 8K content. Knowing these things, which TV would you think I would enjoy most?

  17. Wrisco Wisconsin on October 5, 2021 at 8:44 am

    This cannot be serious. How much money Sony pays to be awarded the best TV of the year award, because. they don’t have vrr on their hdmi port, and they won’t have it until winter, it’s a shame not to do a serious shootout and give that award to the A90J

  18. Raitzi on October 5, 2021 at 8:45 am

    Phillips pushed around 1000 nits peak from LG oled panel last year without heat sink btw.

  19. Jim Cameron on October 5, 2021 at 8:46 am

    SONY OLED 83 flagship price around 15.000€/$

  20. Jamal Shedid on October 5, 2021 at 8:47 am

    Great video and thumbs up i always watch your videos

  21. starwatcher73 on October 5, 2021 at 8:48 am

    they keep throwing TV on the market but when you as a customer unbox a new TV, looking at a 5% grey picture in a dark room you keep crying

  22. Cloud VII on October 5, 2021 at 8:48 am

    New LG A1 have no 120/4k support like LG CX 48.

  23. Rami Edhail on October 5, 2021 at 8:49 am

    We need 8K OLED from Sony

  24. Cloud VII on October 5, 2021 at 8:49 am

    LG A1 4K OLED (48, 55, 65, 77-inch): This new entry-level OLED features the a7 Gen 4 AI processor, supports Dolby Vision and Atmos, and packs in 20W of audio, but doesn’t support HDMI 2.1 in its three HDMI inputs (unlike last year’s LG BX OLED).

  25. Rob 700 on October 5, 2021 at 8:50 am

    Wouldn’t it be a good idea to wait for the televisions to come out so that you can test them first?
    Already in 2020 there were predictions and promises that in the end were not fulfilled.
    But what do I know. Right ? 🤷‍♂️

  26. EpicPhenomenon on October 5, 2021 at 8:50 am

    And what about the new Philips mini led tv line for 2021? No one talks about it.🤷🏻

  27. Ryan W on October 5, 2021 at 8:52 am

    Hi Vincent @HDTVTest . TV Manufacturers are looking for every competitive advantage over one another. Why wont one of them re-introduce 3d? I’m specifically thinking of Sony. Sony got it to a great point before they quit. They had one tv model, the X900C in 2015, which had passive glasses and delivered 1080p in each eye lens and upscaled it looked great in 4k too. 3d looked fantastic on that tv and you could use cheap passive glasses with it. Did adding 3d cost manufacturers that much extra to add it to a tv? Was there that little demand for it? I know people that love 3d.

  28. Benny Lau on October 5, 2021 at 8:52 am

    hi Vincent, and everyone here, do you have any idea if the samsung 8k tvs game mode 32:9 supports 7680 x 2160 resolution? theoretically it should. if it doesnt, for me there is no point in selling my limbs to buy the 8k. the 4k 32:9 game mode is also not spectacular at 3840 x 1080.

  29. Cameron Tait on October 5, 2021 at 8:52 am

    C is the new B for LG, nice one Vincent.

  30. Jos K on October 5, 2021 at 8:55 am

    Waiting in patience for the Oled reviews! Can’t wait to buy a new tv this year!

  31. sbramblett03 on October 5, 2021 at 8:55 am

    Do any of the newly announced TVs support WiFi 6 or WiFi 6e?

  32. Channing Rhodes on October 5, 2021 at 8:55 am

    You never discuss burn in on these OLED displays. That’s a major factor why I wont purchase an OLED TV again until they resolve these issues!

  33. SunShine on October 5, 2021 at 8:56 am

    If I ever win the lottery I will go for the Sony display, as long as I don’t win.. I will not haha.

  34. Ferran Garriga Ollé on October 5, 2021 at 8:56 am

    What about Philips :’)

  35. Jorma Kovanen on October 5, 2021 at 8:58 am

    We are living in great times in terms of tv technology. And to think that you can get a screen this great at 55" or 65" for the price of a phone they are really cheap.

  36. wettlis on October 5, 2021 at 9:01 am

    I heard just a couple of weeks ago there would be a 50" in the Samsung Q90A range, which is what I would buy since I use it a lot for home work and web surfing and need something smaller and more restfull for the eyes with anti glare. Was the 50" false info or… ?

  37. Max on October 5, 2021 at 9:06 am

    Micro-LED technology is the future 💯%

  38. REIGN on October 5, 2021 at 9:09 am

    I have never watched my cx and said.. hmmmmm this needs to be brighter. Anyone else who has, most probably arent using it in a dark enough room, and or has the settings all wrong. I get headaches with my panel if I dont have it on medium energy saving for most the time. i dont think I have agressive abl going on either. And i think perhaps there is an algorythm that picks up on my viewing habits.and may or may not run it less agressively. Also, I run burn in tests all the time, did almost 2000 hours. Nothing out of the norm, its still perfect. No dse either. I think people instinctively think brighter is better, but if im being honest. 500 nits on average would be a good average, anything above 700 and your just chasing your tail. Blowing out clipping the picture. And if you use it for gaming 70% of the time, your eyes will also adjust to the brightness and start to see a good average. And again, i think average picture level brightness should not need to be over say 600 nits, unless you have a fairly bright room. And maybe watch hdr a lot. But the cx does dolby vision sooo well. Why would you want hdr? If u want brightness, buy a non oled. If you can respect contrast, and contrast ratio, and understand it. And want the best image. Buy an lg oled. They know what theyre doing

    2 awards for Sony: Biggest TV of CES and worst presentation of CES

  40. mikefitzgerald41 on October 5, 2021 at 9:11 am

    Best Buy told me at lest 6K for the 83” Sony
    For what it’s worth

  41. Habs on October 5, 2021 at 9:12 am

    Just wanted to say thanks for breaking this all down

  42. Tom Kirby on October 5, 2021 at 9:13 am

    I’m going from 65" to 75" when the new models come out.

  43. Rodney Dangerfield on October 5, 2021 at 9:14 am

    Great timing!…Will cancel order for Sony A9G and continue waiting for 2021 Sony A90J!

  44. Attila Kovács on October 5, 2021 at 9:14 am

    my one stil on 3.11.30 and can’t find any new one.

  45. Don Ernesto on October 5, 2021 at 9:16 am

    Yes Vincent’s only fans lol, that was really funny.

  46. Raiden J. on October 5, 2021 at 9:16 am

    The Biggest Samsung and top model will have 5000 diming zones, Samsung said .

  47. Little patience for self righteous moral hypocrites on October 5, 2021 at 9:17 am

    Just my opinion but I feel as if most of the TV brands are focused on trends and new buzz words related to screen tech. Whereas Sony and Panasonic seem to be more focused on improving their TVs in terms of the processors (which are at least as important as the panel even though most people seem to just jizz themselves over the panel technology only), sound, user interface and A.I ability (all of which seem more useful to me than the panel technology) and so forth

  48. socratese5 on October 5, 2021 at 9:18 am

    Isn’t 83 too big for 4k?

  49. t kermi on October 5, 2021 at 9:18 am

    I wonder if the Panasonic will still have that weird random jerkiness in foggy / smoky scenes which has troubled it for years. 🤔

  50. Luis Augusto Freitas on October 5, 2021 at 9:19 am

    Please please compare A90J vs G1
