The 4 Best Sony TVs To Buy (2020) – Budget, Mid-Range, LCD, And OLED

The 4 Best Sony TVs To Buy (2020) – Budget, Mid-Range, LCD, And OLED

Sony TVs are generally a pretty safe bet. They tend to have great picture quality and a good amount of polish. Their build quality also tends to be better than average. Their budget models are not the most competitive TVs, but their high-end and especially their mid-range options are among the best, albeit usually at a price premium.

Best Budget: Sony X750H

Best Mid-Range: Sony X900H

Best LCD: Sony X950H

Best for Dark Rooms: Sony A8H

For most 2020 Sony models, international variants have a very similar model code but with the letters reversed (eg. The US X900H becomes the XH90 in Europe).

    Too much technical stuff for TV’s. If you’re just watching TV shows and movies in general any modern-day TV is going to give you a decent picture. It’s tough to get a really bad TV just like it’s tough to get a really bad smartphone in the 2020’s Sure, are you going to see some black areas that may be more gray in certain light, But the average viewer is going to be satisfied with probably 90% of the TVs available today. 60hz refresh rate is good enough for watching shows. Especially if you’re upgrading from a 7-year or more tv that is not 4K you’re going to see a big difference with any new TV. It’s just a matter of what fits your budget and what size you need for the room. If you’re a gamer, okay now you need to be a little more picky about the refresh and hdmi generation, and a few other things that drive gamers

    I really wish Sony would offer a center stand in the US. I’m not going to go buy a new piece of furniture because the legs for the 75" X900H I want, are so far apart. Sorry Sony. You won’t be getting my money. I want to replace my 2009 Sony Bravia 55". It has a center stand AND it swivels.

    Rting, please reduce viewing angle co efficient in your scoring system. It’s absolutely doesn’t matter and caused a lot of your tv reviews become inaccurate like a much better TV gets overall score than a garbage tv that has good viewing angles! Most people dont really care about that slight picture degradation of viewing from angle and you care too much about it. Great tvs I had such x900f and ru8000 and a bunch of samsungs and vizios as well, and for those who had bad viewing angles, anytime i was watching from angle I had zero issue or complain about picture change. Please reconsider

  8. MN NM on February 12, 2021 at 11:01 pm

    Got the 75" X900H for $1500 think i did a good deal

  9. Matthew Floyd on February 12, 2021 at 11:02 pm

    Slight correction: z8h has hdmi 2.1 aswell. Also, processor between 900h and 950h is a big difference for upscaling

  10. Jaspal Riat on February 12, 2021 at 11:03 pm

    Initially bought the 55” X950H but the tv leaned so far back that once I saw it, I couldn’t un-see it. Sony say it’s a design feature, were they assume everyone’s sofa sits higher than the tv.
    I returned that and bought 55” X900H instead ($950 on sale). Excellent picture quality and the OS system is far better than Samsung’s !

  11. Juan Seedy on February 12, 2021 at 11:04 pm

    Hi I’m buying the Xh 95 the 65 inch model from Curry’s PC World is down to £1299 here in the UK for the Black Friday weekend sales, I was going to buy the LG nano cell 65” 91 as is £999 , but I think the Sony is a much better choice great video peace ✌️

    Just bought the XBR75X800H but not getting it installed for two more weeks. For watching Cable TV, Sports, Netflix, other streaming services and Blue Ray movies, I’m sure this model will be excellent. Can’t go wrong with Sony and their colour accuracy, 4K upscaling and other great features will be more than satisfactory. The fact is, once you get the TV home and working, you won’t be able to tell the difference.

  14. Ludwig Reyes on February 12, 2021 at 11:05 pm

    Hi guys, I heard the x950h has a rainbow effect on screen due to antiglare or wide angle feature. Is there a way to eliminate this issue?

  15. Tauqeer Ahmad on February 12, 2021 at 11:09 pm

    Sony’s OLED is more brighter than LG OLED. Wtf lg 😂😂

  16. Entertained2036 on February 12, 2021 at 11:09 pm

    Best channel for TVs. Yes!

  17. L A on February 12, 2021 at 11:10 pm

    I just purchased the 85" X800H a month ago for $1,699. I’m absolutely pleased with it. I’m not a gamer so I have no concerns with anything to do with that. I watch a lot of sports and movies. I have had no problems with motion. The picture and color are absolutely stunning and I am very satisfied with the black levels also. The X800H utilizes VA panels and not IPS. I have no complaints whether watching in the daytime(bright room) or nighttime(dark room). All in all, at this price point and size I’m very pleased with the X800H. But it’s really hard to go wrong with Sony!

  18. MultiRogerg on February 12, 2021 at 11:11 pm

    I just bought a 55” Sony x900h and it’s supposed to arrive sometime next week. Can’t wait. Let the gaming begin!

  19. DigikidForever on February 12, 2021 at 11:12 pm

    It sure sounds like you said that Sony told Vincent that the blurry text issue will not be fixed……but other sources say otherwise including Sony themselves…..

    Please get the story straight.

  20. Lele _82 on February 12, 2021 at 11:12 pm

    I can’t find the review for Sony serie 85…

  21. Joel Morgart on February 12, 2021 at 11:12 pm

    Do you sell the TVs after testing or old models?

    I wish i could buy the x950h… Just because im in a bright room with reflections. I like good picture quallity… i also play games, But it doesn’t has hdmi 2.1 -_-

    No i dont want the x900h. Just for gaming.. Great! Now what?…. i guess nothing!

  26. Shawn Peters on February 12, 2021 at 11:19 pm

    I recently purchased the x950h and I’m hooking it up to my laptop via HDMI to a Windows 10 laptop. I don’t know if it’s automatically enabled. But when I go to my Windows settings and try to enable hdr on my secondary display, being the x950h, it enables quickly, then disables immediately. The picture is still extremely good, but I wanted to know if anybody has encountered this or found a solution. It may just be in my settings that I do not have something right, again this was through the Windows settings, and not the TV settings. I have not configured those yet, does anybody have any experience with enabling hdr to the x950 from a pc?

    X750 best budget Scary they would suggest us buy that tv

  30. Freedom 63 on February 12, 2021 at 11:28 pm

    I need help. 😳

    I bought an LG 65GX last week on discount for 2500€ – 350€ Cashback.
    In the end I paid 2150€.

    Was that an failure that I bought the GX over the A8 ?

    I can buy the Sony 65 A8 again for 1980€ and I can return the LG.

    Should I return the GX Gallery TV for the Sony A8 ?

    I don’t care much about HDMI 2.1.

    I hope anyone can help me. 🙏

    No X800H review ??

  34. Jitendra Salunkhe on February 12, 2021 at 11:31 pm

    What is about X8000H?

  35. Gong Zhe on February 12, 2021 at 11:31 pm

    To me, 950h is much better than 900h on image quality. The diff is so obvious that me and my wife can tell within seconds of parallel watching. For gamers, I think there are still not enough 4k120hz games out there for us to settle for 900h’s image. You can buy a new TV for your PS5/XSX when HDMI 2.1 matures. So I eventually went for 55-inch 950h. I’m still happy I made that choice after months of usage.

  36. Sam Aljarba on February 12, 2021 at 11:33 pm

    I bought 75" XH950, superb

  37. The Blur on February 12, 2021 at 11:34 pm

    could you guys do a video about vrr

  38. frank1971ification on February 12, 2021 at 11:35 pm

    I got the 50 or 49.5 inch Samsung q8dt (box says 50 inch manual says 49.5) and I was told that it has HDMI 2.1 and 120hz but I can’t find anywhere in the manual or online that it actually does. I need help. If It doesn’t I’m gonna return it.

  39. James Christmas on February 12, 2021 at 11:36 pm

    Hate anything Sony. bought an $800 smart Sony. Dumbest TV ever. Disconnects from Wifi often. Have to restart TV several times a week. Apps move around. Sometimes apps won’t launch. Have had to uninstall app and reinstall to get working. Sony as a brand has lost it in my opinion. Never Sony again.

  40. Super Saiyan on February 12, 2021 at 11:37 pm

    Okay just the video thanks

  41. Tyler Zimmerman on February 12, 2021 at 11:38 pm

    Can you explain why the 75h does not support apple airplay? This is a feature that is available on TVs half the price. I bought one under the impression that it just wasn’t advertised to include it but assumed it still did.

  42. TheDeadlyDAD- on February 12, 2021 at 11:40 pm

    Q: What is the best method/tool, to use
    to correctly adjust the display settings on the Sony 900h ??

    Thank you in advance.

  43. Ilian Shamija on February 12, 2021 at 11:41 pm

    What about X800H is it better than X750h , thank you

  44. LEIEJ on February 12, 2021 at 11:45 pm

    Thank you for providing us the this type of video!

  45. Papi Chulo on February 12, 2021 at 11:45 pm

    I bought the A8 a week ago and had to return it cause it doesn’t have HDMI 2.1 (120fps) instead it has HDMI 2.0 (60fps) I’m going to get the LGCX

  46. ntube7 on February 12, 2021 at 11:45 pm

    Daniel is back ! 👍👍👍👍👍🎉🎊

  47. Damon Barnes on February 12, 2021 at 11:45 pm

    Sony trades on its name and reputation more than any other manufacturer. Not to say Sony is a bad TV, its just that a lot can be had for a lot less money from other manufacturers

  48. Brent Jones on February 12, 2021 at 11:45 pm

    If I had the xh80 next to the xh90 would I notice the difference probably not 🙂

  49. Jason Seal on February 12, 2021 at 11:48 pm

    The TVs for 2020 are such a let down from all manufacturers.. I’m waiting for next year this is depressing
