  2. Lachlan Fleming on July 9, 2022 at 1:39 am

    Does anyone know how going up in tv size affect gaming quality?

  3. Jorge Nava on July 9, 2022 at 1:40 am

    Hi man, his video was great, really great, I was searching for a tv ready for ps5 or xbox series x, and I was convinced to go for the q80t at 55 inch, however I went to specs on samsung web and I saw that when I choose the 55 inch model, in specs is only freesync, but when I choose the 65 inch model it appears freesync premium, is that right? Only 65 inch model and above is fresync premium? I NEED YOUR HELP, because its a deal breaker for me, its way to expensive in 65 inches, thanks

  4. D-RealTalk on July 9, 2022 at 1:40 am

  7. John Holifield on July 9, 2022 at 1:42 am

    Is the Hisense H9G the best bang for the buck for some sports (mainly ota) and local ota tv plus movies?

  8. Lex Lutha111384 on July 9, 2022 at 1:45 am

    I have a $1000 and need a new tv for my living room. I may want to play games on it at some point but I mostly game on my PC monitor. My wife and I like movies and sports. I would love to get a 65” tv. Right now at Best Buy the LG Nano Cell 85 65” is $999. I’m thinking that might be my best bet. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Also, does anyone know the peak brightness of the Nano cell 85 series?

  9. DDC ROCKY on July 9, 2022 at 1:47 am

    Can the lg c9 do 4k 120hz

  10. Johnny Bonilla on July 9, 2022 at 1:49 am

    I was going crazy on buying a T.V. I had to satisfy my lady for movies, kids for gaming and myself for sports. I ended up buying Samsung Q80T. I passed my budget but hey, my entire family is happy. Priceless. Thanks Fomo.

  11. Michael Jordan on July 9, 2022 at 1:49 am

  13. Jim Jernigan on July 9, 2022 at 1:54 am

    I have never seen anyone do a better job of reviewing ANYTHING so thank you for educating me on something I love! Keep up the great work.

  14. CiKi on July 9, 2022 at 1:54 am

    C9 120Hz 4K not possible, as far as I hv seen

  15. Jess Cuz on July 9, 2022 at 1:55 am

    Sony 900h you mention is good for sports but it’s not 4k 120hz. Is this not important? I’m mostly getting a TV for movies and TV shows and YouTube but what ability for sports here and there

  16. Ivan Padilla on July 9, 2022 at 1:55 am

    Great channel.Very useful information. 👌

  18. Greatest Ever on July 9, 2022 at 1:59 am

    I am thinking of upgrading from my old panasonic plasma tv to a new one. I have no cable, direct tv just have my tv hooked up as the monitor of my old gaming pc from 2010 and mostly watch youtube videos with a netflix subscription and a bluray maybe once a month. Would it be worthwhile to upgrade to an oled or qled. So youtube 90% of the time. Is youtube capable of using HDR and other high end options that the higher end oled or qleds offer? So final question, Should I get a lower model or go for the higher end tvs for my needs?

  19. Jawahar Karthick on July 9, 2022 at 1:59 am

    Can you do a review on OnePlus Q1 series?

  20. Christopher Caron on July 9, 2022 at 1:59 am

    Any opinions on the 2020 65" Samsung the frame? The art mode is helping me sell a new tv to my wife but the lack of local dimming is the only thing that makes me hesitate. I’m upgrading from an older 1080p tv so just about anything would be better than what I have

  21. Ryno on July 9, 2022 at 2:01 am

    65inch ig cx or a 75 inch q95t samsung its hard help me out wanting to upgrade cos of hdmi 2.1 and wanted a bigger tv already have 65 inch q6fn im using it for gaming but keep hearing oled is amazing but can get q95t 75 for around same price as cx in 65

  22. Edu Vivan on July 9, 2022 at 2:02 am

    I game a lot, like 4/5 hours a day, and I do it in a bright room, so I’m A LOT worried to buy oled since it’s risk of burn-in is inevitable and it’s a darker screen. PLEASE HELP ME MAN 🙏🏽
    I’m really conserned and thinking to buy a qled instead, but I REALLY want to experience the oled as well

  24. yogu yogueee on July 9, 2022 at 2:03 am

    Whether the sony x900h have eARC. IN SONY website the are showing only ARC

  25. Richard Gray on July 9, 2022 at 2:04 am

    Just hooked up the new Sony X900h 75", and wanted to thank you for your review comments in this and the other x900h related videos. The TV shows up very well sorted and has more than enough innovations to keep this old audiophile/videophile. Set up was thorough and offers a great number of settings that even an old hound like me can enjoy that part. As for its capabilities with movies it performed well with the latest Star Wars movies (Rogue One) and The Force Awakens. Sports require a change to the settings menu for a few adjustments to the gamma and color adjustments. Overall, quite a good TV for the money! I looked really hard at the competing Hisense, TCL, Vizio, and LG LED models. Glad I bought the Sony!

  26. Alex ryaba on July 9, 2022 at 2:04 am

    Great 👍 job,man
    Ths a lot!!!

  27. John McMillian on July 9, 2022 at 2:05 am

    I’m not looking to buy a Nanoseries LG. But I don’t understand why you state you cannot endorse it?Just curious.

  28. Myke rotch on July 9, 2022 at 2:05 am

    I am new to this channel and it’s amazing from what I have seen in hour videos. I would like to buy a LG OLED TV specifically the 48 inches CX model (lack of space from where I live). Does it have the same features compared to the bigger CX models? I would really appreciate your help. My regards.

  29. Crispin on July 9, 2022 at 2:06 am

    If you had to pick one tv for sports what would it be?? $2,000 is my budget

  30. E- Dogg on July 9, 2022 at 2:08 am

    I only need a 42 inch tv for my game room , but I’m finding it hard to find all these features on the smaller TVs , do you have any suggestions for all these features on a smaller tv ??? I really like Samsung for the bright picture , but I’m open to what your suggestions are!!

  31. Dale Yamamoto on July 9, 2022 at 2:11 am

    What about people who are on a budget, or don’t want or can’t afford to spend $1,000 for a tv.I for one don’t,want to spend $1000 on a 4K tv.

  32. BOSS HOGG on July 9, 2022 at 2:12 am

    LG nano 9 series looks really sharp right before nano OLED but that’s a huge price jump. I have an older LG 55 3D 240hz looking to upgrade but never hear you say anything about 240hz or OLED burn in, please reply.

  33. Dreyn 77 on July 9, 2022 at 2:12 am

    Well, with gaming, panasonic sponsor the game Gran Turismo from PS4 and PS5.
    There’s over 1000 paint schemes in that game which must be the correct shades.
    If you don’t buy the unique Gran Turismo console, you won’t get the perfect paint schemes.

    You have to own everything in Gran Turismo and panasonic.

    Games have 10 years worth of content so players end up being loyal to 1 game.

    And you buy the watch from the game and the motion picture and you get the theme music and the t – shirts and the waffle makers and dinner plates and bobble heads and the cars too.

  34. Emerson Cavalcanti on July 9, 2022 at 2:15 am

    Your videos are awesome, man. Thank you!

  35. Alex Tranda on July 9, 2022 at 2:15 am

    X900h or q70t both 75 inch models ??? ………. i need a handful advice …….. for daily use put i will get the ps5 as well i do not know what to buy 🙄🤔

  36. Henry James on July 9, 2022 at 2:16 am

    Great job! Another informative video!

  37. Supercommittee on July 9, 2022 at 2:17 am

    Could you do a video on what a 144hz 240hz tv will look like 4K 8k ??!?!??

  38. magellanmax on July 9, 2022 at 2:18 am

    Sony is a funny company, they released the PS5 even before they had a TV well tuned for the system.

  39. Buddy305Luv on July 9, 2022 at 2:19 am

    My use case all Movies, Sport, and Gaming. I know I have to pay top dollar for that. Any TVs out there meeting this demand?
    LG WX, Sony A9F etc?

  40. khloi k on July 9, 2022 at 2:20 am

    thanks for the info, was exactly what I need unfortunately the LG CX is $3300 here in Australia and currently out of budget for me right now (the price hike is what we call the Australia Tax due to the import, import tax cost and fair wages). I’ll be sure to look out for the next video you do on the subject

  41. zombieslayyer b on July 9, 2022 at 2:20 am

    why no mention of Vizio? like are u a Vizio hater cuz some of their 2019 2020 models def beat tcl 6series in picture and capability according to all the sites that test tvs. Tcl 6 didn’t look nearly as good as even 2020 Vizio m658 when I saw them

  42. Dreyn 77 on July 9, 2022 at 2:25 am

    You’ve missed 1 of the most important aspects.
    How You’re driving the tv.

    They give you features, What happened to you when you used those features?

    For example, they gave you a feature which reduces peak brightness.
    That wasn’t an option during the original film from 1980.
    Are you even using the 2022 features or not?

    You’re not supposed to be chasing original sound etc. Cause they don’t offer the original film experience and sound.

    They offer an experience that controls pupil dilation in your eyes.

    You can chase all the new experiences from MONO out of stereo setup or you can chase all the stereo sounds that get improved with each new release.
    You don’t have to experience 5.1 at all.

    Dolby mono exists as well as Dolby stereo.

    SO new customers to Roger Moore James Bond motion pictures have NO Excuses cause ‘ their ‘ 5.1 sound is available but for the old customer, the Dolby mono exists and that too gets upgraded plus you get to used the NO peak brightness, no annoying pupil dilation problems.

    Did you notice the latest blu-Ray DVD pushed the images further into blu-Ray style images?
    Did you fine tune to get more out of this enhanced version or were you a victim in all this?
    You’re supposed to be tuning to exploit the direction you’re buying in.

    You claim to be a victim in all this.

    Why are you a victim to the boosted colours and the black levels?
    You’ve forgotten about driving the features you’ve lost your way.
    Following Vincent teo isn’t getting you back on track.
    He tells you to turn off lots of features to get original images but 1980 Roger Moore amplification isn’t coming back and its not on offer.

    The old DVD does a believable version, enough to fool the brain but 2020’s DVD blu-Ray isn’t anything like the original images.

    The TV gets a different tuning for the 2020’s DVD blu-Ray experience. Its going much further away from the original experience.

    All new, never experienced before experiences.

    1980 Roger Moore like never before and you either got beat up by the end of the picture or you were refreshed at the end.
    Were you a victim to the effects from 5.1 or dolby mono OR did the TV smooth out the rough spots leaving you in great shape by the end?

    Movie experiences are emotional rollacoasters.
    Home cinema is an intense experience.
    Manufacturers try to lesson the impacts.

  43. Ricky on July 9, 2022 at 2:25 am

    Does LG nano 85 have hdmi 2.1?

  44. Rayton White on July 9, 2022 at 2:25 am

    Do NOT get a SONY TV for gaming. It does NOT do 120 hz at true 4K

  45. Omar Ceen Tayyab on July 9, 2022 at 2:28 am

    OH MY GOD DUDE. U are Unbelievably good at this. No one else is even close.

  46. Bigby on July 9, 2022 at 2:29 am

    Did Vizio fix everything with P quantum x 2020 after firmware update ? Would love to see a review.

  47. James on July 9, 2022 at 2:30 am

    If I stream sports from YoutubeTV, will that reflect on the 120hz tv?

  48. Bebe Chapman on July 9, 2022 at 2:31 am

    Hi what if you easily get motion sickness? Can you use a QLED? I cannot watch IMAX or blueray.

  49. sprung robin on July 9, 2022 at 2:32 am

    My q90t is not good for hockey

  50. ChristianPatricia Koethke on July 9, 2022 at 2:35 am

    The 2020 tcl 6 series is a 120hz panel. How does it compare with the Sony x900h for watching sports?
