    I have a Samsung QLED TV. It’s ok lol

    The toughest but the most required theme to focus on to make weekends and breaks nice and full of benefits.



  3. Alienbull on April 30, 2021 at 3:47 am

    Sony a90j



  4. Wade Williams on April 30, 2021 at 3:50 am

    I have the Sony A8F OLED. Spent around $750 “like new” which is an absolute steal.



  5. Silent Hillers on April 30, 2021 at 3:51 am

    I have a Philips 4k led 58 inch for my ps4 xbox series s it works fine



  6. SrCoentros on April 30, 2021 at 3:51 am

  7. Scary Hours on April 30, 2021 at 3:52 am

    I keep debating on getting a new tv for gaming but my 55" VIZIO that is ten years old works perfect 👍.



  8. Overdose 9 on April 30, 2021 at 3:54 am

    This makes me even more confusing 🤦



  9. Marcus Grandien on April 30, 2021 at 3:54 am

    i bought the lg cx in november for the ps5. Still dont have one



  10. Zubair Khan on April 30, 2021 at 3:55 am

    Hi guy, great video. Just a quick question, I have a budget of £900 dollars. What tv would you recommend in my budget which will have all the features for gaming as I post this question today. Thanks



  11. allen0088 on April 30, 2021 at 3:55 am

    Gaming on my a1e oled is frustrating compared to my brighter z9f with ultimate processor



  12. Gregory Evans on April 30, 2021 at 3:56 am

    PLEASE guys first question does that TV get screen burn if it does DO NOT BUY



  13. Steve S on April 30, 2021 at 3:56 am

    I really want the LGCX 65 inch but the stand it comes with turns me off bigtime, and there is also worry about burn in. Is that a real issue with that TV? I’ve also heard DTS surround sound doesn’t wotk with this TV. Is this correct? Can you attach a different stand to it? I can’t wall mount it unfortunately due to renting. Thank you for the helpful review!



  14. JoHn GoTTiE on April 30, 2021 at 3:56 am

    I’m running with the Samsung TU7000. Amazong!!!



  15. Danny., on April 30, 2021 at 3:58 am

    I got a LG nanocell 86 55inch with my ps5 series X having a blast



  16. Chris Jenkins on April 30, 2021 at 3:58 am

    What about the LG nano86



  17. Local Bands of Rancho Cucamonga on April 30, 2021 at 4:01 am

    I appreciate all the benefits of LG OLED but I don’t like that you did not mention the negatives. For example the lower HDR brightness than other technologies and the possibility of burn-in



  18. Mohamed Sankoumba Fadiga on April 30, 2021 at 4:01 am

    If you are in a Hurry (Like me) get a CX (cheaper in june), otherwise wait for the C1 and pay a lot more for fancy (unneeded) specs



  19. Felix 180 on April 30, 2021 at 4:02 am

    LG Oled BX now or B1 (in november) are best bang for the buck 👌🏻



  20. Astro on April 30, 2021 at 4:02 am

    I had a Samsung TV for awhile not knowing it was a gaming tv🤣🤣



  21. Elliot Andersson on April 30, 2021 at 4:03 am

    I have an ru7445 would you call that a mid range tv?

    The Tv has supreme uhd dimming is that the same as full aray local dimming?



  22. nooki3mywooki3 on April 30, 2021 at 4:04 am

    Anyone know what is the most affordable hdmi 2.1 tv on the market ?



  23. Light on April 30, 2021 at 4:04 am

    To summarize
    *There isn’t*



  24. clever g on April 30, 2021 at 4:05 am

    I got the Samsung lu28r550 4k monitor with my new ps5 the past week and i recommend you that monitor for less than 300$ you got 4k ips HDR (which it’s very good for a monitor) and it’s 28′ so it’s perfect for a desk on a individual room



  25. thetechdude1 on April 30, 2021 at 4:07 am

    Great video



  26. Arnie Ricon world on April 30, 2021 at 4:08 am

    Hello sir sending full support thank u..see u..



  27. dimitrios007 on April 30, 2021 at 4:09 am

    Dont buy 2020 tv’s . 2021 will be a real upgrade with the evolution panels of all oled brands like sony lg Panasonic next year first ever qd oled!



  28. Jasper Verbrugghe on April 30, 2021 at 4:09 am

    Sony xh90 is great option in my opinion



  29. Gregory Evans on April 30, 2021 at 4:10 am

    NO TV THAT GETS SCREEN BURN ESPECIALLY OLEDS ARE GOOD FOR GAMING HOW CAN A TV EXPERT EVEN SAY THAT



  30. Zé Carlos on April 30, 2021 at 4:11 am

    Burn in ?.???? Why ignoring ?



  31. Tera Star on April 30, 2021 at 4:12 am

    How does this compare to the c9?



  32. marcos on April 30, 2021 at 4:13 am

    Honestly as long as you have a good brand 4K 60hz tv with a low input lag you should be fine because not a lot of games are going to be running at 120fps, at least not yet…



  33. an237251 on April 30, 2021 at 4:13 am

    Whats tge keyboard ???



  34. alexander traina on April 30, 2021 at 4:14 am

    I have excellent credit but I’m apprehensive about buying a $1500 item Am I better off saving up cash for it and buying it out or trying to find somehow(any advice) how I can make monthly payments pref interest free for 6 months- year or two



  35. Daryl Nebeker on April 30, 2021 at 4:15 am

    Vizio p series??



  36. Romi Bajwa on April 30, 2021 at 4:15 am

    📺



  37. J J on April 30, 2021 at 4:17 am

    If people think 4K@120hz is gaming tv , they are wrong. You won’t be playing at 120hz after u see the graphics difference between 4k60 and 4k120. I was thinking the same too in the start.



  38. Glitch on April 30, 2021 at 4:18 am

    So should we wait to get more options for 2.0?



  39. Joshua R on April 30, 2021 at 4:19 am

    I just bought a brand new 65 inch LG OLED CX for $1799



  40. jerson verdeflor on April 30, 2021 at 4:20 am

    Uhh your friend is Henry Caville? Superman?



  41. Lil Tilt on April 30, 2021 at 4:20 am

    I just got the cx 55 inch model, it’s on sale for cheaper than the smaller size one right now, I use it with my series x and it’s absolute insanity. The quick response time is very noticeable and makes a huge difference. The 4K and HDR look great and I can utilize 120 frames per second on the games that have it. HUGE upgrade from almost any other TV you’d have. Get it right now while it’s on sale!



  42. friedzombie4 on April 30, 2021 at 4:21 am

    Lol show a game with 4k 120fps renders in 1440p.



  43. Enigma The Gray Man on April 30, 2021 at 4:21 am

    Sony 65” A90j



  44. ZWGamemasterGame on April 30, 2021 at 4:21 am

    Great vide9, but when i buy a new tv for gaming, the most important thing for me is inputlag and i don’t hear you speak about that.



  45. six3six on April 30, 2021 at 4:27 am

    LGCXOLED



  46. Kapono5150 on April 30, 2021 at 4:28 am

    Why did he say the CX is one ☝️ of the most expensive? It’s actually a lot cheaper than the Sony A90J and since the CX is last years model, you can find it on sale.



  47. Jonathan on April 30, 2021 at 4:28 am

    I have an Hp 27f monitor I was wondering how to get sound from it, it has no audio jack only hdmi and help will be appreciated before I buy a tv for gaming.



  48. Arnie Ricon world on April 30, 2021 at 4:29 am

    Hello sir sending full support thank u..see u..



  49. Raymond Cervantes on April 30, 2021 at 4:39 am

    instead of spending money on a TV just get a gaming monitor.



  50. pukhtoon707 on April 30, 2021 at 4:39 am

    Completely useless video, no info on what TV to buy…..
