    Sony A90J

  2. Iamsteezze on March 24, 2022 at 5:54 pm

    A huge editorial tech site like CNET can’t tell the difference between TVs and TV’s

  3. Newbroken on March 24, 2022 at 5:54 pm

    I don’t like LG because of low quality feeling and too much plastic

  4. Rudy Z. on March 24, 2022 at 5:55 pm

    Either Samsung, and/or LG tvs are the best.

  5. Falconsfan71 on March 24, 2022 at 5:57 pm

    Is “Burn in” a concern with the LG C1? I do a lot of roster editing and custom draft classes for Madden on PS5 so I have a still screen a lot. I think it has ruined my Vizio.

  6. David Jamgochian on March 24, 2022 at 5:59 pm

    I wanna my TV

  7. Cruzan9 on March 24, 2022 at 6:00 pm

    LG C1 is less expensive than Sony A90J from what I’ve seen. For that reason alone I decided on the LG. I will be getting it in a few weeks.

  8. Home TV on March 24, 2022 at 6:00 pm

    I have personally tested in many stores, Sony’s (a80j/a90j) picture quality is way better than LG

    Stupid format (interview) for this kind of content.

  11. daveinstlouis on March 24, 2022 at 6:02 pm

    How about reliability? Is one brand better overall than another? Are these TV’s going to last 5 …10 years without breaking down? Not everyone can afford a new TV every couple years.

  12. Venka Dx on March 24, 2022 at 6:10 pm

    Better to rename it to Lg C1 mini review

  13. Lhakpa Bekhim on March 24, 2022 at 6:10 pm

    Sony X90j the best tv of 2021.

  14. SlobberChops on March 24, 2022 at 6:13 pm

    This is the worst “best TV” video of all time LOL

  15. Mr. Sin on March 24, 2022 at 6:14 pm

    I bought the LG C1. No ragrets

  16. SaintKristofer on March 24, 2022 at 6:14 pm

    Why did the graphic make possessive the “TV’S”?

  17. Tampa0123456789 on March 24, 2022 at 6:14 pm

    So you get what you pay for. Sort of. All brand have their high line and low line.

    Me personally I have gotten tired of trying to chase technology. By next holiday season what ever we buy today will be half price.

  18. Steven Hocking on March 24, 2022 at 6:14 pm

    The best remote is Sony oled remotes. Keep it simple, with premium materials and elegant design. Remotes should be kept simple, not like lg’s nitendo wii style wand remote which is just inconvenient and hard to use, and samsung’s minimalistic remotes are the worst cos there’s no numbers and many other important buttons are missing which is just abysmal, very inconvenient and hard to use. Well done Sony!

  19. Rocco Corriere on March 24, 2022 at 6:15 pm

    Just lost our 6 year old LG OLED to a power surge. Good thing because it had burn in from watching a news channel with the constant emblem and scrolling messages lower screen. Want to replace it with the C1 but worry about same burn in problem. Is that still the case on the newer OLEDs?

  20. Jason Reuter on March 24, 2022 at 6:17 pm

    Love my Vizio going on 10 years now.

  21. bannajirocks on March 24, 2022 at 6:18 pm

    LG c1. Using it on my PS5. It’s mind blowing

  22. 💜 PuggieOnMobile 💜 on March 24, 2022 at 6:18 pm

    Thank you auntieeee

  23. Manuel Rivera 10 on March 24, 2022 at 6:19 pm

    nothing beats Sony still

  26. Rax K on March 24, 2022 at 6:21 pm

    Nope! A90J is the best tv at the moment! C1 doesn’t even come close I’m afraid, test for yourselves. This vid is not providing the facts!

  27. John Latham on March 24, 2022 at 6:23 pm

    Did CNET not test any Sony OLEDs? The A80J and A90J definitely have a better overall picture out of the box in my opinion (and many other’s). Go walk into a Best Buy and see for yourself. The A80J is a little more expensive than a C1 but not by much… LG is great too don’t get me wrong, but not even mentioning Sony for best picture quality? LG has legitimate competition out there worth mentioning. Just saying

  28. Unknown prx on March 24, 2022 at 6:23 pm

    Oled tvs are not good for eyes

  29. Dannyboy1312 on March 24, 2022 at 6:23 pm

    Hi, I want a recommendation for my next LED 55” tv on a budget. So no OLED or Samsung Q90A. I will use for mainly gaming with Xbox series X and also for Ultra HD streaming. Which one would you recommend TCL R646, U7G, U8G?

  30. J Coz on March 24, 2022 at 6:23 pm

    75in QN90A Luv it & TCL is 🚮

  31. Lynee' McKinsey on March 24, 2022 at 6:25 pm

    I have an RCA roku tv

  32. Sombathado on March 24, 2022 at 6:25 pm

    A90j be like : am i a joke to u ?

  33. Brad Powell on March 24, 2022 at 6:26 pm

    C1 is a great set and the A80J is arguably better especially if gaming isn’t a priority.

  34. Marcus Duff on March 24, 2022 at 6:28 pm

    How does the C1 sound native without a sound bar/system?

  35. KD9 on March 24, 2022 at 6:28 pm

    Well, this guy only picks oleds, so if you’ve got a bright room you’re screwed, whatever.

  36. Janchi on March 24, 2022 at 6:31 pm

    LG Fanboys spotted… LOL………. Sony has the best picture quality this year 2021… LG is really good, but Sony is better prooven by so many reviews and they won BEST TV 2021….

  37. Zedd on March 24, 2022 at 6:32 pm

    Ok basically TV of the year is LG OLED 😒, that’s sums up this vid folks 😂😅.

  38. Joseph Smith on March 24, 2022 at 6:32 pm

    “The Best TVs of 2021” but mainly name dropped one 😭😭🤦🏽‍♂️

  39. Robert Grimm on March 24, 2022 at 6:33 pm

    Why is everyone recommending OLED TVs? I find them lacking in brightness and almost dark and dull as they don’t feel as alive as leds. Plus I’d worry about burn in all the time and longevity of the tv doesn’t seem to be as long as other tvs.

  40. Robert Grimm on March 24, 2022 at 6:35 pm

    I hate Roku! I bought a $30 one for my daughter and it never worked. Would never connect ever when everything else connected, google tv, Apple tv, just about everything else worked where Roku never would. I will never buy any product that has Roku on or in it ever. Sorry guys pick another tv because the budget-friendly TV you guys recommend with the Roku I’ll never buy.

  41. CriticalFreeThinker on March 24, 2022 at 6:35 pm

    So the best picture yet you didn’t bring up the Philips oled 936? It’s miles better than the c1 in picture quality and sound and is crazy money but it’s still the better picture…. Seems a bit dodgy to me. C1 is a great tv and I will be buying the 65 C1 so there’s no bias at all. Can’t justify 3k on the 936 when I can get the c1 which is half the price nearly and works great for ps5 and XSX. C1 is the best overall tv right now but let’s not lie, it isn’t the BEST picture at all.

  42. Newbroken on March 24, 2022 at 6:38 pm

    I was watching another review, it was 73k views and 0 comments

  43. arpan roy on March 24, 2022 at 6:39 pm

    Where is sony x90j?

  44. Newbroken on March 24, 2022 at 6:42 pm

    What about Hitatchi?

  45. Danny V on March 24, 2022 at 6:42 pm

    I highly recommend the Sony A80J for any Non Gamer and Android User. This TV also includes Next Gen 3.0 internal Digital Tuner that accesses all available and upcoming Digital over the to air Broadcast channels without an antenna. The live tv tab automatically intergrates Live Tv but also Intergrates Pluto Tv (Now with over 300 Free Channels) but also Intergrates other Live Tv streaming services (in my case SlingTV ) .

  46. baron eleve on March 24, 2022 at 6:44 pm

    Love to say I’m a proud owner of an LG c1 65" and a Series X🤣

  47. rich Williams on March 24, 2022 at 6:45 pm

    What is this massive love affair for roku? I find Amazon fire tv platform pretty good as it auto installed IMDb tv on it and recommended person of interest to me which I haven’t been able to find on any uk tv channel or streaming service for free. I like how it does recommend shows etc. I find it have a tendency to want its own platforms for search or recommendations and it’s not the cleanest interface however I’m growing more fond of fire tv. Iv used roku and didn’t find it that great tbh.

  48. Blues guitar tips/lessons on March 24, 2022 at 6:47 pm

    It would be helpful if you could address which TV does the best job at deflecting glare for those of us who watch in rooms that get a lot of light/ have lots of windows

  49. S D on March 24, 2022 at 6:47 pm

    Look look rebranding isnt going to solve the core issue some how we need to deliver

  50. Jason T. Brown on March 24, 2022 at 6:50 pm

    What about the hisense u8g tv?
    What do you think about that ine.
    It seems like hisense is stepping up with their television sets
