    The Z2 looked absolutely stunning to me! The Sony had a slight pinkish hue? to me that the LG didn’t exhibit…Just don’t understand why LG feels the need to charge such an absorbent price of $25k for their 88" set! 🙄… Have a feeling the A95K will be offered in a considerably larger size next year like a 77" or 83-85"? The 65" is just to small for most folks these days…thx again Brian for yet another great shootout!

  2. Dim Willow on November 11, 2022 at 6:42 am

    would pick the LG because it look sharper.. but prefer colors on the Sony

  3. David Kaufman on November 11, 2022 at 6:44 am

    Given a choice between the 88” Z2 or the 97” G2, which would you go for? Or is it best to wait to see if we get a big screen QD-OLED next year?

  4. Ian Woollard on November 11, 2022 at 6:44 am

    Very keen to get my hands on an A95K 65 inch. Seems like the best overall package for my needs. I find it hard to say which is the best both are stunning. The color seems better on the Sony but the brightness of the LG is impressive.

  5. john jordan on November 11, 2022 at 6:47 am

    Hi Brian,

    Havent seen the z2 at all yet but excited to see it.

    I had a good play with the A95K & S95. a while back when released to outlets
    If youre an old Samsung screen vibrancy and pin sharpness you will love the Sammy with dazzling colour space ability. So apart from the jump in PQ, amazing gaming hub, things are sailing smoothly. But…

    The Sony does it for Sony fans. Better in every ability to show movies, TV shows, best HDR ive ever seen on OLED. Im getting the a95k as soon as i make the money up.
    No TV ever struck me the way this TV does. In the flesh its colour level, pop and its not ‘overblue’ but truly beautiful. Im a casual gamer too so…
    Brian ive seen your videos on Mid Tier TVs to the best of high end TVs – most manufacturers. Plus you know how most of us reason rgds to pros/cons.

    I think we all know who has that all round knack in Assessments of TVs right up to everything but a teardown. Few sponsored guys too but they are mostly informed.
    Some on here are so disingenuous; The TV they order to shame review just to stick it to young A/V enthusiasts by just making a reasonable TV into a POS (in his own mind)

    But nooo hes waking people up as There is a Tempest in Q-TV….😶‍🌫😶‍🌫😶‍🌫

  6. faguson hanks on November 11, 2022 at 6:49 am

    Lg z2 is more beautiful to me I think the lgz2 is the winner in pictures quality

  7. Eulita Gillette on November 11, 2022 at 6:54 am

    LG Z2

  8. Zac Davis on November 11, 2022 at 6:55 am

    I supported them and bought a $6500 G2 and it has issues, takes 4 power presses to turn on sometimes, banding, CEC does not work on the tv. I just wanted a exchange or return and I just get oh we will call you back, no call back, I’m turning the tv on wrong lol. I know it cost them money on return but my tv is defective. I will never buy and tv from MOM and POP store every again. BEST BUY will be the only place I purchase from, from now on. Least I can return a tv that doesn’t work right.

  9. Jay Thomas on November 11, 2022 at 6:56 am

    The white balance and/or overall color profile is different on QD and W OLEDS. Which one is accurate is question for the experts. QD has a more warm tone W has a bluish green casr,

  10. Anuza Hyder on November 11, 2022 at 6:57 am

    A95k jus cant keep up. S95b (on bt2020) vs z2 wud hv been a better comparison

  11. Young57Money on November 11, 2022 at 6:58 am

    Will LG oled z2 8k come out with a 65inch model?

  12. Andre Melandray on November 11, 2022 at 7:00 am

    If qdoled has a cleaner panel with virtually no streak lines , which is what i’ve been hearing, then for sure that would be my biggest selling point in my decision to go qdoled

  13. Joe S on November 11, 2022 at 7:00 am

    As much as I appreciate this, I and everyone else really need to see the sets for ourselves in person. I didn’t always think that A95k was brighter in this video, but your camera can only capture so much light and I learned that cameras will cast a blue tint to WOLED that you don’t see with your eyes in person. So no one watching this video can make an accurate assessment for brightness and especially for color. But I still thank you for your efforts.

  14. John Volpe on November 11, 2022 at 7:01 am

    Congratulations Brian on picking both winners Before shootout ! Think LG will come out with an 8K QD OLED in the future?

  15. Kieran Smith on November 11, 2022 at 7:02 am

    The Sony looks more like how you would see in real life and the lg looks like it has a movie colour filter enabled for everything

  16. Neil mark Taylor on November 11, 2022 at 7:02 am

    I currently have the LG C2 which I am very happy with it be interesting to see how much noticeable difference between the C2 and Sony A95K is any tv looks good until you compare it to another apparently according to HDTV the new Panasonic LZ2000 gives the Sony a run for its money

  17. Magic World on November 11, 2022 at 7:02 am

    Hey Brian, I heard lg g2 has broken HGIG so shall I consider a lg g2 for gaming or a Sony a80K

  18. Craig on November 11, 2022 at 7:03 am

    Z2 looks better to me. What’s with the pink hue @8:00 mark ?
    Looks terrible

  19. jpa art on November 11, 2022 at 7:04 am

    not a fair comparison a $20000 TV vs $3000 TV like comparing a VW vs Cadillac lmao

  20. smilesrs on November 11, 2022 at 7:07 am

    I’m impressed with the color depth & saturation of the Z2 and the A95K has the pink hue. I agree the 8k is a better way to see 4K especially with the larger oled panels

  21. Nathan Thompson on November 11, 2022 at 7:09 am

    Unfortunately QD-OLED still have problem with reddish in Sony, same thing happened to Samsung.

  22. Puli Doneshkumar on November 11, 2022 at 7:10 am

    absolutely Z2 is master Series
    it is a speach less

  23. Bruce Carter on November 11, 2022 at 7:10 am

    Both beautiful panels Brian. Great job to all of you guys!

  24. William on November 11, 2022 at 7:11 am

    S95B is the King of TV’s in my mind, nothing can touch it at its price, I can’t imagine that the Sony is that much better because they use the same panel.

  25. tominfhl on November 11, 2022 at 7:12 am

    Hey Brian, you’ve seen all the Zs from the Z9 to the ZX to the Z2. Do you see a massive leap between generations? I might be able to snag a Z9 for the cost of a kidney instead of my whole body but wonder if I will have FOMO about it not being the latest and greatest.

  26. Mike Gemmati on November 11, 2022 at 7:12 am

    I’ve been seeing a reddish tinge signature to the QD Oleds on all YouTube videos including this video. Is this what you are seeing?

  27. barbosa pereira on November 11, 2022 at 7:14 am

    Now that you know A95k, what do you choose :

    XR75X95K or XR65A95K?


  28. MrLionBlood 1977 on November 11, 2022 at 7:17 am

    Would u recommend the samsung qn900b or the samsung s95b? Mostly for gaming and some for movies and shows

  29. FULL HD on November 11, 2022 at 7:17 am

    Both are excellent , there is no absolute king ,, but one is warmer than should be – and one is cooler than should be ,,, neither to my taste ; I missed you plasma 😔

  30. seogab onotjah on November 11, 2022 at 7:18 am

    hopefully next year :
    8k QD-OLED and LED/Mini LED separates categories
    sony had better color IMO, but overall yes Z2 is on another level in term of perfomances………and price

  31. Loki 76 on November 11, 2022 at 7:18 am

    A95K wins easily.

  32. MusicMeterviking on November 11, 2022 at 7:18 am

    Please would you make a comparison between the Sony A95K and the Panasonic LZ 2000 or 1500? Tomorrow the Sony A95K arrived at my home but lean more and more towards the Panasonic

  33. Quat on November 11, 2022 at 7:19 am

    woled pushes blue and qdoled pushes pink on camera.

  34. supergrendel on November 11, 2022 at 7:20 am

    Maybe it’s something with the camera but the A95K seemed warmer while the Z2 looked cooler. The white balance on the Z2 looked significantly better than the A95K.

  35. John on November 11, 2022 at 7:21 am

    I think it’s great that you talk about mom and pop shops. They are the foundation of our country and we should support them. In my experience they have always been more supportive and customer focused.

  36. Jan on November 11, 2022 at 7:21 am

    The Z2. There both really close and sometimes i prefer the z2 more than the A95K. The A95K is only available in 65 inch, the Z2 is bigger. I really like the colours and contrast of the Z2 only one scene the squirrel scene was much better on the A95K.

  37. Rossi MadDog on November 11, 2022 at 7:22 am

    Find that the a95k has a purple/pink tint and LG looks more blue on camera. Some scenes lg looks brighter, other times the sony looks brighter, hard to choose. Take both😜

  38. James Estrada on November 11, 2022 at 7:22 am

    Fun fact @ 8:32 – that’s a Marmot. They’re native to Colorado, and you see a lot of them in Rocky Mountain National Park 👍🏼

  39. Tarek Z on November 11, 2022 at 7:23 am

    A95K hands down, not even close.

  40. mister 007 on November 11, 2022 at 7:25 am

    6:00 >Sony 🤩😍

  41. Ed Lawrence on November 11, 2022 at 7:26 am

    First off, thanks for all you do as well as the whole crew in these annual VE Shootouts. One suggestion that I would like to see each year is the previous year’s Shootout winner vs all newcomers such the Sony A90J to see the upgrades, if any that were made. Especially since Sony seems to always continue their Master Series for 2 years before they upgrade to a new model.

  42. Usama Said on November 11, 2022 at 7:27 am

    I came to the wrong video this two are different animals hahahaha

  43. shinomidou on November 11, 2022 at 7:28 am

    A95K ❤️

  44. John Powers on November 11, 2022 at 7:30 am

    What nits does the Z2 hit? Over 900?

  45. Jay Thomas on November 11, 2022 at 7:34 am

    @ 13:12 See the real difference. in the foliage. QD looks like Fall. W looks like summer .which is real?

  46. Shamar Lawrence on November 11, 2022 at 7:36 am

    Top 3 displays of 2022 IMHO
    #1 LG Z2 88in
    #2 Sony A95K 65in
    #3 Sony Z9K 85in
    Some amazing picture quality from any of the 3 displays I mentioned above, its plenty of honorable mentions as well but WOW look at the fantastic picture quality from both LG Z2 & Sony A95K!😍🙌🏿❤️

  47. IFREETHROWMONEY on November 11, 2022 at 7:38 am

    ima be honest Z2 looks better to me in most scenes

  48. Larry Hazelwood on November 11, 2022 at 7:39 am

    The Panasonic LZ-2000 would clean both their clocks.

  49. sunarf on November 11, 2022 at 7:41 am

    Based on what I’m seeing, the Z2 looks ‘slightly’ oversaturated. But without the reference panel for comparison and having settings being messed with, it’s hard to tell for sure. I’ll wait until a proper shootout is done. Thanks for your contributions in all of this Brian.

  50. K S on November 11, 2022 at 7:41 am

    Colors look different.
