Need a new TV? These are great options.
The 2022 Sony Bravia XR A95K recently took first place in a respected 4K HDR TV shootout, and it's likely the most impressive TV you'll see this year! The A95K's panel uses the new quantum dot OLED (QD-OLED) technology from Samsung Display. QD-OLED's main characteristic is its pure RGB subpixel design that delivers outstanding color purity and brightness compared to other OLED and LCD televisions. The only drawback of the Sony A95K TV is that it is only available in 55-inch and 65-inch screen sizes. The Sony A95K will deliver a premium viewing experience if the size options work for you.
The 2022 Samsung QN900B Neo QLED 8K Smart TV is the most exemplary LCD I've ever seen. The QN900B's mini-LED backlight system delivers 2x the light output of the best OLED TVs. Its anti-reflective screen surface is also ideal for a bright room viewing environment. The QN900B's Infinity Screen design eliminates the traditional bezel for a stunning presentation. Its Slim One Connect box enables a single-cable connection to the TV for a clean look and simplified cable management. The Samsung QN900B is available in 65-inch, 75-inch, and 85-inch screen sizes and is the premium pick for nit-nerds, gamers, and videophiles alike.
The 2022 LG C2 evo OLED TV improves upon last year's model with an upgraded panel technology that is more robust and potentially brighter. One of my favorite things about the new C2 series of 4K TVs is composite fiber materials that significantly reduce its weight - up to 42% compared to 2021 models! The C2 TVs feature the latest LG video processor for superb picture quality and video calibration options. Gamers will love the LG C2 TV's support for 4K 120Hz input, variable refresh rate technology, and 4 HDMI 2.1 ports. Be aware that the new 42-inch and 48-inch screens aren't quite as bright as larger models, which include 55-inch, 65-inch, 77-inch, and 83-inch sizes.
The 2022 TCL 6-Series 4K Mini-LED TV is fantastic tech for the price. The new 6-Series (R655) features Mini-LED backlighting for increased brightness and local-dimming control, delivering eye-grabbing picture contrast. The R655s support all popular HDR formats, including Dolby Vision, HDR10+, HDR10, and HLG. PC and console gamers will appreciate the TV's two 4K @ 144Hz HDMI inputs. The 6-Series' Roku operating system is easy to use and supports all popular streaming services. My only criticism about TCL's R655 lineup is the lack of a NextGen/ATSC 3.0 tuner for receiving local 4K broadcasts. The TCL 6-Series (R655) TVs are available in 55-inch, 65-inch, and 75-inch screen sizes.
The 2022 Hisense U8H Mini-LED 4K TV matches the picture quality of TVs that cost twice as much. This Google TV-powered display is compatible with Dolby Vision and HDR10 for superb streaming quality. Its mini-LED backlight tech with effective local-dimming can deliver an eye-catching brightness of 1500-nits in SDR and 1800-nits in HDR - ideal for brighter viewing environments. Remarkable picture contrast and quantum dot color make the U8H a terrific home theater value. I appreciate that the U8H also includes a NextGen/ATSC 3.0 tuner for receiving local 4K broadcasts, and it calibrates rather nicely! The Hisense U8H is available in 55-inch, 65-inch, and 75-inch screen sizes.
The 2021 Sony Bravia XR A90J 4K HDR OLED TV refines the best display technology into a visually stunning performance. The Sony A90J delivers superbly accurate HDR and Dolby Vision viewing combined with impressive audio options. The A90J's OLED display achieves its peak performance thanks in part to an aluminum heat-spreader that reduces panel stress with HDR content over long-term use. You could skip a soundbar with the A90J's integrated 60 Watt sound system dubbed Acoustic Surface Audio+. This audio system utilizes actuators to transform the A90J's glass screen into a multi-channel listening experience that can also function as a center-channel for AVR users. The Sony A90J is an Android TV compatible with popular digital assistants. The Sony A90J 4K HDR OLED TV is available in 55-inch, 65-inch, and a supersized 83-inch screen size option.
