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



  2. Brandon Martell on December 17, 2020 at 4:48 pm

    Still rocking the LG B7 until I get a ps5



  3. tankbuster techbridgade on December 17, 2020 at 4:48 pm

    Could you wave your hands around some more please?



  4. Jack Macpherson on December 17, 2020 at 4:51 pm

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



  5. TheBlooRayChannel on December 17, 2020 at 4:53 pm

    No Sony or TCL tv’s in the lineup this year! Not a criticism. Just very interesting. Keep up the excellent work! Your tv calibration settings made my life better 🙂



  6. Joseph Ross on December 17, 2020 at 4:54 pm

    No SONY Bravia A9G??? What?



  7. 3434sru on December 17, 2020 at 4:55 pm

    What do you do with all the TV’s?



  8. Arthur Sutton on December 17, 2020 at 4:56 pm

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



  9. ryan on December 17, 2020 at 4:56 pm

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



  10. Oliver David on December 17, 2020 at 4:57 pm

    LG cx, is very impressive in dark room for sure. Own it and proud to have one…



  11. Cristian R.F on December 17, 2020 at 4:57 pm

    LG cx? And SONY A8/89??



  12. Phyo Luck on December 17, 2020 at 4:58 pm

    Very Good



  13. David Pantoja on December 17, 2020 at 5:01 pm

  14. Nigel Wotton on December 17, 2020 at 5:02 pm

    i have the lg cx 55inch…….amazing tv



  15. vinnie92 on December 17, 2020 at 5:04 pm

    What about VRR gamma issue? 2020 lineup is a complete disaster!



  16. M K on December 17, 2020 at 5:05 pm

    Hi, I am looking to buy a Tv with size of 55 or 60 inches. I mainly watch Netflix or sports (football) and I might get the PS5 when it’s available at all times probably some time next year. What do you think i should go for? I’m kind of a Samsung fan but I’m open to suggestions. Thanks



  17. Raiden Croft on December 17, 2020 at 5:05 pm

    Tcl series ?



  18. jj jj on December 17, 2020 at 5:05 pm

    Thank you, Ed 😘



  19. Nardo Great on December 17, 2020 at 5:07 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



  20. stennan on December 17, 2020 at 5:07 pm

    Quick question Daniel, do you have any thoughts on Philips TVs? I can’t find any reviews on your site for that brand. Are they really bad panel that are being sold thanks to their flashy ambilight feature.



  21. RICHARD DE SOUSA on December 17, 2020 at 5:07 pm

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



  22. Akash Dhanjal on December 17, 2020 at 5:09 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.



  23. Andrew Thomas on December 17, 2020 at 5:09 pm

    I have a Sony A8 (H) and as I’m not a Gamer I am Very happy with the picture and sound, it’s the best TV I have ever owned. 😊



  24. Michael Palmieri on December 17, 2020 at 5:10 pm

    Proud Hisense H9G owner here! Managed to snag one from my local best buy after them being out of stock everywhere within 250 miles for weeks and I could NOT be happier! It’s a phenomenal TV that looks top-notch, without the premium price. It’s also perfect for my new PS5 because the HDR game mode has very low latency and is indistinguishable in picture quality from the theater mode. BIG shout out to you guys again for helping make another fantastic tech purchase!!



  25. James Johnson on December 17, 2020 at 5:11 pm

    The H9g is just shy of the Samsung q9t and has as good if not brighter picture. Recent extensive testing in gaming with newest consoles finds it to be excellent it plays with the PS5 excellently at 60fps. It also does crush blacks period. It appears according to PS5 and Xbox X to support Vrr. The only real issue found was red blur, but oddly only in Netflix? Tester found no adjustments corrected his particular unit and it does show sporadically in isdue columns fot Hisence. I would hope itis a firmware update. But could be panel QA issue.



  26. A H on December 17, 2020 at 5:15 pm

    I have the Samsung Q80t, it has an issue with dirty screen effect but it isn’t noticeable when watching content on gaming.



  27. Tarun Jangid on December 17, 2020 at 5:18 pm

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



  28. Rod Fulford on December 17, 2020 at 5:19 pm

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



  29. Sam Wilcox on December 17, 2020 at 5:20 pm

    When are you guys going to be reviewing the Acer Predator XB273U GS??? And also the GX???



  30. zhivago on December 17, 2020 at 5:20 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



  31. Martin Go on December 17, 2020 at 5:20 pm

    This is the only channel I trust for TV reviews



  32. Braska Bani on December 17, 2020 at 5:21 pm

    q90t with the right settings is King.



  33. craetive minds7897 on December 17, 2020 at 5:23 pm

    Can you please review JBL bar 2.1 deep bass Vs Samsung hwq60r soundbar!



  34. Lizzard King on December 17, 2020 at 5:23 pm

    No PS5 no new TV …



  35. Christian Ruf on December 17, 2020 at 5:25 pm

    In germany, the q80t does not have the layer for better viewing angles. Only starting st the q90



  36. Joel Peña on December 17, 2020 at 5:26 pm

    Subtitulos en español please



  37. Micheal Melton on December 17, 2020 at 5:27 pm

    Hisense moving away from Opera TV was a fantastic move.



  38. TheTruckDrivingGamer on December 17, 2020 at 5:27 pm

    Best Tv reviews on the internet period.



  39. Matt Bruno on December 17, 2020 at 5:29 pm

    Is the H8G still recommended for an 85”? I wasn’t sure if the size of the tv matters with these recommendations. Thank you!!



  40. Vero on December 17, 2020 at 5:30 pm

    the guy talking looks tired. been working hard i see



  41. Dejan Krunić on December 17, 2020 at 5:30 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! 😀



  42. Serhii Tkachenko on December 17, 2020 at 5:31 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



  43. skylinexj100 on December 17, 2020 at 5:35 pm

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



  44. Michael S. on December 17, 2020 at 5:35 pm

    Anyone serious about the best picture period should own a oled.



  45. Matthew Floyd on December 17, 2020 at 5:36 pm

    Reason there is no Sony’s is because rtings turns off processing which is Sony’s main feature



  46. John Doe on December 17, 2020 at 5:37 pm

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



  47. Stuart Karden on December 17, 2020 at 5:38 pm

    I have a 65” LG B6 OLED I got 11/26/2016. I watch a lot of CNN and MSNBC and got terrible burn in. (I probably have them on 2-3 hours per day going between the 2 with another couple of hours per day watching other things). LG was good enough to replace it and I got an entirely new panel 11/24/19. At that time I was told to do their screen clearing routine (which takes about 1 hour) every month or so, which I did. I already have noticeable burn in again! Since I noticed it a few weeks ago this panel lasted less than 1 year. When I called LG this time they said I should have been running the screen clearing routine every 2-3 days, which is ridiculous. While my news watching may be unusual, at even 4 hours per day (which I doubt) that meant I got permanent burn in in about 1,400 hours or less. So don’t believe that burn in is nonexistent or requires so many hours it is a non-issue. Therefor I’ll never buy an OLED again.



  48. MonsterSteve on December 17, 2020 at 5:39 pm

    As someone who just received his 55" LG CX this past Sunday, I agree with you 🙂



  49. Morten Bremvåg on December 17, 2020 at 5:42 pm

    Dont see why the CX isn’t suitable for bright rooms. My living room is very bright and I don’t have any problems. Just make sure to not have lamps/windows reflected from the TV and you are golden.



  50. Arjun T on December 17, 2020 at 5:43 pm

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