Why You Should Wait To Buy A New TV | Best 2020 TVs

***Updated*** Best TV’s of 2020 here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UUT_PgRjnHE

I don’t think I have said anything like this in the last ten years, but you might want to wait for a few months to buy a new TV. The TVs coming in for 2020 are legitimately more advanced than most of what we saw in 2019, plus there are several other worthwhile considerations. Hold on to your wallet and see why I think you should hold off on a TV purchase if you can.

    I am getting a TCL 8 SERIES SOON!

  2. Anton Floor on February 17, 2021 at 9:07 pm

    Why don’t you review the 8K OLED nano cell from LG?

  3. Shawn Warnick on February 17, 2021 at 9:08 pm

    Tv tech is way more advanced than any media you can get so its pretty much pointless to get a top of the line tv nowadays. Really if you are looking at a modern tv you should look at reliability so when the tech of everything else catches up your tv isnt obsolete.

    77 inch cx incoming stunt on you broke boys

  5. Ocansey Philip on February 17, 2021 at 9:14 pm

    am hoping to get a PS5 and a TV in December? which TV would you recommend ?

  6. lasagna pinwheel on February 17, 2021 at 9:14 pm

    Live tv is still broadcasting hd. There is no point in getting an 8k TV now there’s very little 4k content. Virtually no 8k

  7. Tom C on February 17, 2021 at 9:14 pm

    So if im watching this End of August 2020 should i wait till black friday?

  8. JDAGREEK on February 17, 2021 at 9:15 pm

  12. DETERMINOLOGY on February 17, 2021 at 9:24 pm

    IF I was to buy any tv for now it would be the LG CX if I’m looking for the best. Hard to beat oled and if it was for next gen gaming most def the CX

  13. Top Gunna on February 17, 2021 at 9:25 pm

    There will always be a better TV no matter what they come out with they will never be future proof, buy now if you want one

  14. bubu mic on February 17, 2021 at 9:25 pm

    I have a 31 inch Finlux TV … Should i wait to get a new one ?

  15. Sayooj Thandasherry on February 17, 2021 at 9:27 pm

    Is this waiting period over( though we have one more month left in this year 🙂 )? or are we expecting more to come this year. LG CX and SONY A8H, A9G are already there, what are your thoughts ?

  16. SpaceNoodles on February 17, 2021 at 9:27 pm

    I bought the LG B9 last year in November. I wished I waited… I don’t think it’ll do 4K 120hz HDR… :/

  17. kewrock on February 17, 2021 at 9:28 pm

    So where does my $400 65" Hisense from Walmart fit in this conversation?

  18. Vanquish Audio on February 17, 2021 at 9:31 pm

    My CX sounds like it’s got everything still coming up

  19. Kurt Lechner on February 17, 2021 at 9:32 pm

    Buy a TV quickly this year, because next year the technology will get worse, the image resolution will decrease and the built-in processors will slow down.

  20. H G on February 17, 2021 at 9:32 pm

    Don’t think so!!!!!!! They will just stop producing LCD that’s what going to happen soon. Not getting cheaper

  21. Darlene on February 17, 2021 at 9:36 pm

    LOL. My son was working on a table close by. He dang near knocked over the chair and table to get to me when he heard you say, "Would only really be of interest to gamers…" Suddenly, I am the cool parent, sitting here trying to keep up with Television Technology!!! Look at me talking all Technology…OLEDS, ALLM, HDMI 2.1. LOL He just knows that it takes me 6 months to make a decision about things like buying a television but he likes where this research seems to be going. It is Nov. 2020, so I guess I am about to find out if these new options are now available. Thanks so much for your Channel. It’s full of really great information.

  22. Peter Martinaitis on February 17, 2021 at 9:37 pm

    No problem with the TV’s the problem is they are out pacing the TV industry. We already have 8k TV’s and yet the majority of TV programmes transmitted are not even 4k.

  23. xermoda on February 17, 2021 at 9:38 pm

    Are we there yet?

  24. John Beaker on February 17, 2021 at 9:40 pm

    This Joker really thinks that a TV can beat a monitor for input lag.

  25. Microage on February 17, 2021 at 9:40 pm

    YOU GET A BETTER EXPERIENCE WITH A TV THAN A HIGH END GAMING MONITOR?!?!?!?! WHAT? xD This guy ain’t knowing shit oof…

  26. james cook on February 17, 2021 at 9:41 pm

    Are those tv’s available now? If yes, which ones are they?

  27. RG Geiger /LoopZine tv on February 17, 2021 at 9:43 pm

    So he says wait till later in 2020. It’s October. My choice will depend on the user interface. Firetv os is what I use now. There’s Roku TVs os and I’m getting Google tv on a chromecast replacement. I’ll see how that works out. My next tv depends on user interface, period. Dongles is a good way to taste a user interface without paying for a tv and getting locked into a os which may not be what your looking for.

  28. Colville Brown on February 17, 2021 at 9:45 pm

    Not convinced and already have an OLED in the bedroom…

  29. Stanislav Sidorovich on February 17, 2021 at 9:45 pm

    In reality Samsung’s TVs came out worse than previous, with lower brightness, and screen refresh rates

  30. Isack Hernandez on February 17, 2021 at 9:46 pm


  31. Robert Davis on February 17, 2021 at 9:46 pm

    Just watched your video on waiting for the new models to come out and my question is when is that going to happen???

  32. Jess Cuz on February 17, 2021 at 9:47 pm

    Him saying clutch was weird

  33. Jaime on February 17, 2021 at 9:48 pm

    i loath your background music

  34. DreamingforPeace on February 17, 2021 at 9:48 pm

    QNED, QD-OLED that’s what I will wait for.

  35. Ďhàmőďhäŕâm Řèďďý on February 17, 2021 at 9:48 pm

    I planed to buy samsung q70r 65inch

  36. RR Film Production on February 17, 2021 at 9:48 pm

    Thanks for the review. What’s your thought about the LG Nano Cell99 series 2020 75 8K smart TV? Is that better or OLED? Also what about the LG Nanocell 90 2020 86" 4k smart UHD tv? I am considering getting both, but is it future proof? Thanks for your time.

  37. MySpankster on February 17, 2021 at 9:49 pm

    i waited….so just ordered my Q90T in 85 inch….excited to get it….cheers all

  38. China Lad on February 17, 2021 at 9:49 pm

    My 85” tv cost £43500. £3500 for the tv and rest for the rest for the living room extension😂🤣🧐

  39. Keiji Johnson on February 17, 2021 at 9:49 pm

    2:25 – 2:27 Why even keep this part in the video?😑

  40. ballstein30 on February 17, 2021 at 9:55 pm

    i’ll wait then. More time to save for a better tv.

  41. MichaelW1980 on February 17, 2021 at 9:55 pm

    Why should any of the HDMI 2.1 features future proof your TV? VRR for gamers probably is nice to have, but everything else either isn’t HDMI 2.1 specific (like eARC, which can running perfectly fine with HDMI 2.0 connections if there is a firmware upgrade) or simply nothing that would break a deal for most gamers.

  42. Seth Peterson on February 17, 2021 at 9:57 pm

    It’s december 2020 and I’m going to hold out until the damn Micro-Led TVs finally freaking come out…
    Plus I already have a Q9fn so I’m pretty up to date anyway.

  43. ginsengjin on February 17, 2021 at 9:58 pm

    None of these are waiting for…. Buy a used TV if you need one. TVs are getting ridiculously cheap and people are selling their old ones for fraction of the price.

  44. nick Larsen on February 17, 2021 at 9:58 pm

    considering gettinga LG CX 55". everything thing looks perfect with 2x hdmi 2.1 ports, but one single thing might destroy my hunger for it and just get a qled; that is the "burn in" issue. I want to play a game for 12 hours straight one day, if thats what I want. or maybe 5 hours another day, or 1 hour the next day – without having to worry about burn in

  45. DSK on February 17, 2021 at 9:59 pm

    i am buying my first tv lg cx 77 inch ,never owned a tv till now

  46. Scott on February 17, 2021 at 9:59 pm

    I have a 19 inch black and white tv… and I"m still waiting…

  48. Feras Katoouri on February 17, 2021 at 10:03 pm

    Hello, I own a Samsung Q80R Tv, the Middle East version, which comes with an excellent box and screen, but my question is, I want to buy a PlayStation 5. Do you recommend buying a new Tv and not keeping the same screen that I have? Thank you very much.

  49. Kurt W on February 17, 2021 at 10:04 pm

    He’s correct 100% this was 8+ months ago 👍 good video Sir 🍻

  50. SF Videos on February 17, 2021 at 10:04 pm

    The main reason I’m waiting is because it’s ALL SO CONFUSING!!!
    Was it like this 14 yrs. ago when I bought the CRT I’m still using?
