    SAMSUNG 50-inch Class Crystal UHD TU-8000 Series – 4K UHD HDR Smart TV with Alexa Built-in (UN50TU8000FXZA, 2020 Model).😱😱 https://amzn.to/2KkzpPt

    According to UK info on Samsung Q80T there no extra layer for improved viewing angle. Could you clarify please



  4. Martin Go on January 7, 2021 at 7:56 pm

    This is the only channel I trust for TV reviews

    LG nano should score way higher for PC monitor/PC gaming use (even in their PC test score/reviews), second only after sony 900H. Samsung has a terrible ghosting issue, search youtube "q80t ghosting" and oled has burn in from PC use.
    RTings seem not to be able to interpet their own reseponse time graphs as the ghosting is clearly seen there yet they fail to mention it in their review (pixel brighness temporarily peaks above 150% of target).

    I bought the OLED 65CX. It arrives next week!! I hope it doesn’t come with any issues 🙏

    I’m looking for a budget tv that’s between 32 and 42 inches. Any suggestions?



  9. David C. on January 7, 2021 at 8:00 pm

    As an obsessive person is very hard to be satisfied with your purchase. Doesn’t matter what tv you buy you keep watching reviews to see if you made the right choice. In my case I picked up a 65” BX cuz the CX was out of stuck and I can’t stop thinking how much better the CX is to the point of thinking the BX looks horrible. And also I feel kinda regret for not choosing the Sony Ah8.



  10. k brooks on January 7, 2021 at 8:00 pm

    The best tv for anyone is the one that suits their own use properly, bright rooms, dark rooms, gaming, movies etc. Even the most expensive TV out there is not perfect, get one that suits your budget and use.



  11. skylinexj100 on January 7, 2021 at 8:01 pm

    the budget options are seriously limited in the UK – what would you recommend for this market? Hisense and TCL is very limited here



  12. Austin Knops on January 7, 2021 at 8:03 pm

    LG C9 is still the best gaming TV



  13. zhivago on January 7, 2021 at 8:04 pm

    I have a Q82q8fn and I was looking to replace it. I am looking at the Q85q90t, but I have been my Q8fn looks much better. Can someone please do a comparison on the 2? Could you guys tell me if the Q90t looks much better or not? @rtings.com



  14. Akash Dhanjal on January 7, 2021 at 8:04 pm

    Your reviews helped me buy a new TV. 👍 Specially, the information your website offers is unmatchable. Would definitely recommend you guys to my friends who are thinking of buying a new TV.
    Would recommend including RCA TVs in your reviews.



  15. John Spirou on January 7, 2021 at 8:06 pm

    what is the best lcd for dark room ?



  16. Claudio Cito on January 7, 2021 at 8:07 pm

    Extra question: there will ever be OLED monitors with good response times and refresh rates? Or am I dreaming?



  17. Phyo Luck on January 7, 2021 at 8:09 pm

    Very Good



  18. Gerald Perry on January 7, 2021 at 8:11 pm

    Is it me or TV haven’t really gotten better last 3 years,unless your ready spend large.



  19. HenrikGamborg on January 7, 2021 at 8:12 pm

    Q80T 50" does not support 120Hz either, just FYI.



  20. TheTruckDrivingGamer on January 7, 2021 at 8:12 pm

    Best Tv reviews on the internet period.



  21. Cristian R.F on January 7, 2021 at 8:12 pm

    LG cx? And SONY A8/89??



  22. shinobicro on January 7, 2021 at 8:15 pm

    i was looking for the test of philips 50pus8505/12 on your youtube ch. and on webpage but it seems that you did not check it. Will do do any test regarding philips TVs since they have there android skin, special functionality and it’s own P5 engine for picture processing



  23. jj jj on January 7, 2021 at 8:15 pm

    Thank you, Ed 😘



  24. Pieter Puk on January 7, 2021 at 8:17 pm

    and sony?



  25. Юрій Гонта on January 7, 2021 at 8:17 pm

    How can you recommend a TV with a strong red tint and crashes?



  26. tankbuster techbridgade on January 7, 2021 at 8:19 pm

    Could you wave your hands around some more please?



  27. Adrian Nica on January 7, 2021 at 8:21 pm

    Where is Sony A8?



  28. BIG MIK3 on January 7, 2021 at 8:21 pm

    Why don’t you do the FPS test white ball on the Samsung or lg?



  29. Online_Now on January 7, 2021 at 8:21 pm

    TCL 6 series is better than the Hisense models..I own both.



  30. Jonathan Martin on January 7, 2021 at 8:27 pm

    why on earth would I pay extra for a LG CX when I can get an LG C9 with almost exactly the same picture quality for much cheaper?



  31. Serhii Tkachenko on January 7, 2021 at 8:27 pm

    To not lose TV shows you are interested in, add them to your watchlist in the MovieDiary application for android. It is much more convenient than storing in notes) Link to Google Play Store: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.flame.moviediary



  32. Arthur Sutton on January 7, 2021 at 8:27 pm

    You didn’t add the best one for gaming that’s super important



  33. Joel Peña on January 7, 2021 at 8:29 pm

    Subtitulos en español please



  34. Jack Macpherson on January 7, 2021 at 8:32 pm

    I would like you to come to my house and read stories to my children. Your voice is relaxing.



  35. Tarun Jangid on January 7, 2021 at 8:32 pm

    Are you serious? Not even 1 sony tv in the list?🙄🙄🙄



  36. Nardo Great on January 7, 2021 at 8:33 pm

    I just got the CX I enjoy it I already have a B9 but didn’t think the difference would be big. My CX images are sharper than my B9 but have no issue with burn in and im a hardcover gamer 😎 i turn my logo luminance on low and pixel refresh often



  37. Micheal Melton on January 7, 2021 at 8:34 pm

    Hisense moving away from Opera TV was a fantastic move.



  38. Arjun T on January 7, 2021 at 8:34 pm

    Just ordered the LG BX, ik it’s not the CX but still damn excited to hook it up to my PS5!



  39. David Pantoja on January 7, 2021 at 8:35 pm

    Vizio p series
    Contrast:14345:1
    Waoooh



  40. Vero on January 7, 2021 at 8:36 pm

    the guy talking looks tired. been working hard i see



  41. Unconcerned Citizen on January 7, 2021 at 8:41 pm

    Not a single Sony on the list? Either the list is flawed, or Sony really needs to step it up to reclaim some of their formal glory.



  42. Dejan Krunić on January 7, 2021 at 8:42 pm

    Nice and short review down to the point. You helped me to buy my LG Oled CX 😉 I can control the light in the room and have XBOX Series X so the TV suits me perfectly. Thanks! 😀



  43. Johnny on January 7, 2021 at 8:44 pm

    I have the original LG oled. And have burn in now. Sucks big time. Looking for a new tv. Staying away from oled



  44. RICHARD DE SOUSA on January 7, 2021 at 8:49 pm

    Hello. I need help. Im between a h8g and a tcl 5 series, they are at same price. Which one should i choose?



  45. John Doe on January 7, 2021 at 8:49 pm

    Z8h is now priced at 5 grand how bout a test guys?



  46. Braska Bani on January 7, 2021 at 8:50 pm

    q90t with the right settings is King.



  47. Joseph Ross on January 7, 2021 at 8:50 pm

    No SONY Bravia A9G??? What?



  48. Amir Na on January 7, 2021 at 8:51 pm

    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



  49. Lee Paterson on January 7, 2021 at 8:51 pm

    Best overall?



  50. Raiden Croft on January 7, 2021 at 8:53 pm

    Tcl series ?
