New 2021 TV Lineup: Should You Wait To Buy a TV?

Now that 2020 is behind us, TV companies are starting to look ahead to 2021, and new models are on the way. Some manufacturers have started to release information on their new models with the newest technology available for consumer use. With LG’s QNED and Samsung talking about Micro LED and Mini LED, there’s a lot of exciting stuff for us to look forward to. But is there enough of a difference to warrant a new TV in 2021?

    I hope in about my first AK TV this year using profits in the stock market.

  2. Friendly Fudge on March 25, 2021 at 12:07 am

    That’s crazy

  3. Mad Ant on March 25, 2021 at 12:10 am

    Again complete lack of info for the most selling categories, only for the high-end and lower-high-end, like OLEDS and MiniLEDs.

  4. Breakdance Music on March 25, 2021 at 12:13 am

    Philips OLED ftw :p ambilight+best upscaling and you don’t need anything else..

  5. Brakkeleer Thuis on March 25, 2021 at 12:13 am

    Yeah shure, you can wait forever! Till your baird is that long it touches the ground. 🙄🙄

  6. jgould30 on March 25, 2021 at 12:14 am

    I went looking for a TV for a friend for the past 6 months and no stores have them in stock anywhere. It’s crazy.

  7. Sean Claxton on March 25, 2021 at 12:15 am

    What is the point in getting an OLED for gaming if it is just going to cause Burn-in…

  8. Brenton Lindeboom on March 25, 2021 at 12:16 am

    Aren’t the new lg tvs that are brighter etc only on the high end models the g1 and up but not the c1? If so I can’t afford a g1 over a c1

  9. Wes Holmes on March 25, 2021 at 12:17 am

    Sony X85J…43” 👀

  10. ICEMANZIDANE on March 25, 2021 at 12:18 am

    A90j ! Nothing else

  11. Johan Van Der Meer on March 25, 2021 at 12:18 am

    Any info on the A90J and A80J as far as if they’ve fixed USB power cycling issue. Also have they upgraded the ethernet port to gigabit

  12. Zenon on March 25, 2021 at 12:19 am

    I wanna see how the Samsung Q90T (qled) stacks up against the Sony A90J (oled) – specifically for PC gaming + movie-watching.

  13. JayTooSavy on March 25, 2021 at 12:19 am

    What is the best 43”-50” television that supports HDMI 2.1 etc.

  14. Nick Bachman on March 25, 2021 at 12:20 am

    I’m worried/expect that tv manufacturers will be cutting corners left and right while increasing the prices for tvs to cover lost earnings in 2020. They’ll also likely deceptively advertise the tvs. I’m sitting here with a 24" 720p roku smart tv 😔 and am looking for another but don’t know what to get. If all I would be waiting for is a high end tv (over $1000) it would not be worth the wait. The MAX I would pay for a 55" (I dont want anything larger) is $700 and even then i am leaning toward $550 or less. Is there any good full array tv I can get for that price? The H9G seems good but updates may have worsened the dimming since the launch.

  15. Tanner Dns on March 25, 2021 at 12:21 am

    900h 4k 120hz is still a blurry mess

  16. Bung Kkb on March 25, 2021 at 12:22 am

    Waiting the C1 review

  17. Infamous on March 25, 2021 at 12:23 am

    I am getting the MiniLed. I don’t have to worry about burn in.

  18. James Baggott on March 25, 2021 at 12:24 am

    All I care about is the LG G1 vs. Samsung QN90A. Why has Samsung chosen to not release the QN95A with One Connect Box in America?

  19. Ultranety on March 25, 2021 at 12:24 am

    I wish they would give us the release date already

  20. Mikey paul on March 25, 2021 at 12:26 am

    I was lucky enough to buy a q8fn back in 2018. I’m still waiting on something that’s actually better enough to upgrade

  21. Tony Camilleri on March 25, 2021 at 12:27 am

    Best video I could have hoped to have found regarding the tvs coming out this year and what to do about it

    Honestly, I am so happy about this simple yet effective approach to your presentation that I would even consider purchasing from you if I didn’t live in Europe, lol.

    I was thinking to have a smart tv with oled or 4k quality, but the gaming features are also interesting to me and I would like to know if I should wait or pay a premium for them.

    I also appreciate the long-term reliability of new tech that has been happening with more emphasis on creating longer lasting tech instead of the age old planned obsolescence of technologies where tvs are concerned.

  22. fancy O on March 25, 2021 at 12:29 am

    I’m waiting because my 2014 1080p Hisense is still awesome BUT I’ll change my TV in 3-5yrs time and of course it will be 8K, I’m skipping 4K. Plus I need to have a proper internet connection, I can’t be buffering on 8K.😩😅

  23. Mini Eggs on March 25, 2021 at 12:31 am

    I very much want to see a review of the QN95A in 85 inch. I also want to know does it have the sane physical no gap mount points on the back as the Q95T

  24. Boni on March 25, 2021 at 12:31 am

    I hope you’ll one day start reviewing Philips TV sets.

  25. The Gulag Sender on March 25, 2021 at 12:32 am

    Is it likely that the prices of 2020 models will go down after the release of 2021 models?

  26. kevin mcnamara on March 25, 2021 at 12:32 am

    Best 75 inch for tv and sports good HDR quality for around $1500 ?. Mostly watch at night in a some what darker room.

  27. LUIZ on March 25, 2021 at 12:33 am

    My tcl just gave up after two years.

  28. ReasonablleDoubt on March 25, 2021 at 12:34 am

    Samsung 8k mini is a beast.

  29. Friendly Fudge on March 25, 2021 at 12:37 am

  30. Brenton Lindeboom on March 25, 2021 at 12:37 am

  34. Gratuit Paradise on March 25, 2021 at 12:42 am

    Thanks for the info. However, here is some info we need. Basic tutorial for dummies how to trick out a smart tv to zoom on zoom like a PC. Mic, keyboard, speaker/earbuds wireless etc.Plzzzz

  35. Friendly Fudge on March 25, 2021 at 12:43 am

  36. PattycakeStudios on March 25, 2021 at 12:44 am

    I was distracted by his tiny, tiny hands!

  37. Bill Hubbard on March 25, 2021 at 12:46 am

    Looking at it now Sony has yet once again delayed the VRR ALLM an that till winter.. but we all know that then gaming features on Sony will not come in 2021

  38. Jaymes Hayes on March 25, 2021 at 12:47 am

    Well I get samsung just added my high price models i guess like $10000 price tags well in Australia you can not buy a tv under $1000 decent I payed $1195 for a samsung TU8000 last year and I think I will be my last as am going to oled as not paying almost oled price for samsung lcd

  39. doc B on March 25, 2021 at 12:49 am

    be aware Samsung only put ONE hdmi port on all there 2021 tvs unless it has the box … no buy Sony gives two hdmi 2.1

  40. Brutus Smithers on March 25, 2021 at 12:50 am

    The A90J is the one to watch.

  41. Yo Yo on March 25, 2021 at 12:50 am

    I’m good with my 85inch x900h.

  42. Freddie Slaughter on March 25, 2021 at 12:53 am

    Today is 02-16-2021 and tv’s from 2020 are still not bargain. Samsung Q90T is $2,000.00

  43. Doug Garbark on March 25, 2021 at 12:54 am

    Any word on a 43" TV with VRR? Looking to get a new one to go with my consoles, but a 50" is too big for my room.

  44. Brendan Hickey on March 25, 2021 at 12:56 am

    what i want to see this year is the hisense h9g with full hdmi 2.1 support, that would be the perfect setup with the new consoles

  45. Harikrishanan V on March 25, 2021 at 12:56 am

    Hey, should I wait for x90j. Im actually at the verge of buying 55" X90h for 799€. I felt that’s a best deal. Please suggest ASAP. Thanks in advance.

  46. Stephen Swiech on March 25, 2021 at 12:57 am

    I want to see the new TCL OD Zero ? And hope it comes in a reasonable size I really need a new TV and I don’t have that big of a space

  47. Keelyn Wheeler on March 25, 2021 at 12:58 am

    Glad I found this. Was just getting Reedy to preorder the q60a thinking it was 120hz

  48. Michael Cericola on March 25, 2021 at 12:58 am

    Are we still expecting a 42 inch LG OLED in 2021?

  49. Ghouls Rush-In on March 25, 2021 at 1:00 am

    I actually don’t like upgrading my TV. I have an older Sony Bravia 1080p. I enjoy the way it looks just fine. I don’t really see the need to spend money to upgrade something I’m already happy with. I actually prefer movies I watch at home to look a little less good. I mostly watch older movies and TV shows and enjoy the older nostalgic feel. I think moving up to a 4k TV would take something away from that. IF I could realistically go back to one of the older Sony Trinitron boxes I would but logistically it would be terrible because those things are so damn big and heavy.

  50. Otto Petrén on March 25, 2021 at 1:01 am

    A90J, G1 and JZ2000
