The 4 Best Sony TVs To Buy (2020) – Budget, Mid-Range, LCD, And OLED

Sony TVs are generally a pretty safe bet. They tend to have great picture quality and a good amount of polish. Their build quality also tends to be better than average. Their budget models are not the most competitive TVs, but their high-end and especially their mid-range options are among the best, albeit usually at a price premium.

Best Budget: Sony X750H

Best Mid-Range: Sony X900H

Best for Dark Rooms: Sony A8H

For most 2020 Sony models, international variants have a very similar model code but with the letters reversed (eg. The US X900H becomes the XH90 in Europe).

    You did not bring up the X800H , can you make a decrnt review on it please

  2. Pablo Romero on October 10, 2021 at 8:54 am

    Don’t buy SONY. Since many years ago they made expensive TV with bad panels that did not last more than 3 years. Don’t waste your money

  3. Joe R on October 10, 2021 at 8:55 am

    I really wish Sony would offer a center stand in the US. I’m not going to go buy a new piece of furniture because the legs for the 75" X900H I want, are so far apart. Sorry Sony. You won’t be getting my money. I want to replace my 2009 Sony Bravia 55". It has a center stand AND it swivels.

    Hi I’m buying the Xh 95 the 65 inch model from Curry’s PC World is down to £1299 here in the UK for the Black Friday weekend sales, I was going to buy the LG nano cell 65” 91 as is £999 , but I think the Sony is a much better choice great video peace ✌️

  11. Ilian Shamija on October 10, 2021 at 9:03 am

    What about X800H is it better than X750h , thank you

  12. Amir Na on October 10, 2021 at 9:04 am

    Rting, please reduce viewing angle co efficient in your scoring system. It’s absolutely doesn’t matter and caused a lot of your tv reviews become inaccurate like a much better TV gets overall score than a garbage tv that has good viewing angles! Most people dont really care about that slight picture degradation of viewing from angle and you care too much about it. Great tvs I had such x900f and ru8000 and a bunch of samsungs and vizios as well, and for those who had bad viewing angles, anytime i was watching from angle I had zero issue or complain about picture change. Please reconsider

    such hard pro work

  14. Eman on October 10, 2021 at 9:04 am

    X750 best budget Scary they would suggest us buy that tv

  15. Tauqeer Ahmad on October 10, 2021 at 9:08 am

    Sony’s OLED is more brighter than LG OLED. Wtf lg 😂😂

  16. Rueagon Vyceratops on October 10, 2021 at 9:10 am

    i have the x800 h it must be a sucky tv , after i just bought one , since he never mentions the x800 or x80 whatever

  17. DigikidForever on October 10, 2021 at 9:11 am

    It sure sounds like you said that Sony told Vincent that the blurry text issue will not be fixed……but other sources say otherwise including Sony themselves…..

    Please get the story straight.

  18. Damon Barnes on October 10, 2021 at 9:12 am

    Sony trades on its name and reputation more than any other manufacturer. Not to say Sony is a bad TV, its just that a lot can be had for a lot less money from other manufacturers

  19. Larry Henery on October 10, 2021 at 9:12 am

    Do a video about best tv for ps5

  20. Carlito Brigante on October 10, 2021 at 9:12 am

    I bought the A8 a week ago and had to return it cause it doesn’t have HDMI 2.1 (120fps) instead it has HDMI 2.0 (60fps) I’m going to get the LGCX

  21. Lele _82 on October 10, 2021 at 9:13 am

    I can’t find the review for Sony serie 85…

  22. Tyler Zimmerman on October 10, 2021 at 9:13 am

    Can you explain why the 75h does not support apple airplay? This is a feature that is available on TVs half the price. I bought one under the impression that it just wasn’t advertised to include it but assumed it still did.

    Hi… LG7300 or Sony X750H?

  26. Super Saiyan on October 10, 2021 at 9:19 am

    Okay just the video thanks

  27. James Christmas on October 10, 2021 at 9:19 am

    Hate anything Sony. bought an $800 smart Sony. Dumbest TV ever. Disconnects from Wifi often. Have to restart TV several times a week. Apps move around. Sometimes apps won’t launch. Have had to uninstall app and reinstall to get working. Sony as a brand has lost it in my opinion. Never Sony again.

  28. LEIEJ on October 10, 2021 at 9:20 am

    Thank you for providing us the this type of video!

  29. Brent Jones on October 10, 2021 at 9:21 am

    If I had the xh80 next to the xh90 would I notice the difference probably not 🙂

  30. TheDeadlyDAD- on October 10, 2021 at 9:23 am

    Q: What is the best method/tool, to use
    to correctly adjust the display settings on the Sony 900h ??

    Thank you in advance.

  31. HITZU_INDO on October 10, 2021 at 9:24 am

    Best gaming tvs please, for PS5

  32. Tecno G on October 10, 2021 at 9:25 am

  34. Stephen Rudberg on October 10, 2021 at 9:25 am

    Just bought the XBR75X800H but not getting it installed for two more weeks. For watching Cable TV, Sports, Netflix, other streaming services and Blue Ray movies, I’m sure this model will be excellent. Can’t go wrong with Sony and their colour accuracy, 4K upscaling and other great features will be more than satisfactory. The fact is, once you get the TV home and working, you won’t be able to tell the difference.

  35. Hitesh Padmashali on October 10, 2021 at 9:26 am

    43" X800H or 49" X750H? from a value for money perspective, since both are around same price point.

  36. B - DTN on October 10, 2021 at 9:30 am

    He says xh9505 Not having e-arc 2.1 support the Sony website says it does.

  37. Maverickg3g BLS on October 10, 2021 at 9:32 am

    Absolute piece of shit!!!! Don’t purchase a Sony TV. Usual Bullshit that the pic is great blah blah blah but everything else about it is shit!!! Casting is fucken useless, USB compatibility is fucken useless!!! Spend over 5K on a TV I expect better than this bull shit!!!

  38. justin chen on October 10, 2021 at 9:33 am

    Hi guys, need your help. Do I go for 65x8000h or 65x7000g with nivida shield? Tqtq

  39. CFL-Tech on October 10, 2021 at 9:35 am

    Too much technical stuff for TV’s. If you’re just watching TV shows and movies in general any modern-day TV is going to give you a decent picture. It’s tough to get a really bad TV just like it’s tough to get a really bad smartphone in the 2020’s Sure, are you going to see some black areas that may be more gray in certain light, But the average viewer is going to be satisfied with probably 90% of the TVs available today. 60hz refresh rate is good enough for watching shows. Especially if you’re upgrading from a 7-year or more tv that is not 4K you’re going to see a big difference with any new TV. It’s just a matter of what fits your budget and what size you need for the room. If you’re a gamer, okay now you need to be a little more picky about the refresh and hdmi generation, and a few other things that drive gamers crazy..lol

  40. J Braz on October 10, 2021 at 9:36 am

    I bought the x750h 3 weeks ago. I was thinking about exchanging it for the x900h. After learning that about the 4k 120hz problems I’m just gonna save the 450$ and stick with the 750h. It looks good to me.

  41. Jaspal Riat on October 10, 2021 at 9:37 am

    Initially bought the 55” X950H but the tv leaned so far back that once I saw it, I couldn’t un-see it. Sony say it’s a design feature, were they assume everyone’s sofa sits higher than the tv.
    I returned that and bought 55” X900H instead ($950 on sale). Excellent picture quality and the OS system is far better than Samsung’s !

  42. Jitendra Salunkhe on October 10, 2021 at 9:39 am

    What is about X8000H?

  43. ErwalDeeas on October 10, 2021 at 9:40 am

    Awesome vid. Thanks guys!!!!

  44. Ludwig Reyes on October 10, 2021 at 9:41 am

    Hi guys, I heard the x950h has a rainbow effect on screen due to antiglare or wide angle feature. Is there a way to eliminate this issue?

  45. Robert Kelly on October 10, 2021 at 9:42 am

    X950H looks impressive not much upgrade over the excellent X950G.

  46. Arnel Comia on October 10, 2021 at 9:43 am

    Thats why i bought x90h last novmber.because of this rattings..still waiting for firm upgrade.

  47. Joel Morgart on October 10, 2021 at 9:43 am

    Do you sell the TVs after testing or old models?

  48. L A on October 10, 2021 at 9:44 am

    I just purchased the 85" X800H a month ago for $1,699. I’m absolutely pleased with it. I’m not a gamer so I have no concerns with anything to do with that. I watch a lot of sports and movies. I have had no problems with motion. The picture and color are absolutely stunning and I am very satisfied with the black levels also. The X800H utilizes VA panels and not IPS. I have no complaints whether watching in the daytime(bright room) or nighttime(dark room). All in all, at this price point and size I’m very pleased with the X800H. But it’s really hard to go wrong with Sony!

  49. manik aggarwal on October 10, 2021 at 9:48 am

    No X800H review ??

  50. MultiRogerg on October 10, 2021 at 9:51 am

    I just bought a 55” Sony x900h and it’s supposed to arrive sometime next week. Can’t wait. Let the gaming begin!
