Which one is the "best" TV right now?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I'm currently using a Samsung Q9FN but I'm really unhappy with it due to lags, red lines and many other common Samsung issues (if you don't know what I mean, just look at Samsungs forum. Each "High End" TV since 2016 has micro stuttering in content like sports and anime, red lines accross the screen with PS4 and X1, forced auto updates even when disabled and so on). That's why I want to change it as soon as possible. But which one would be a proper replacement? The last time, the fear for burn-in keept me away from OLED but I think there is no real way around it anymore. The requirements for a TV would be the following: 

 

- Needs to be 55" (not enough space to fit 60" or bigger :<) 

- Sound is not necessary because I use a Teufel Theater 500 5.1.2 system anyway but this requires the TV to be able to work with a Onkyo receiver 

- Dolby Atmos support required due to the sound system (or does the TV needs it because everything is wired to the receiver anyway?)

- Dolby Vision would be nice due to AppleTV

- 4K as resolution 

- Low input lag would be nice too 

- DVB-C receiver with CI+ Module 

- Recording function for the TV signal (so double tuner would be nice) 

- No stuttering or lag from the TV (sure it can happen from the ethernet connection but it really should not happen for local content) 

- YouTube, Netflix and Amazon apps 

 

As far as my research goes, this would come to the LG C9 or Sony AG9. But after the expirence with the Samsung Q9FN, I thought asking experts about this might help to avoid the same issues once again. Sorry for my bad english skills, it's not my primary language and I can't even spell it in my primary language correct. x) I hope it is clear what I try to say anyway.

What is your budget/country for your new PC?

 

what monitor resolution/refresh rate?

 

What games or other software do you need to run?

Your research would be correct. In my opinion those are the best tvs out. I have a C7. If you want superior motion processing and have the money go sony. The C9 is still an amazing tv. Burn in is one of the most fear mongering things I've seen in tech in the last few years. Treat your device like normal and not on 24 7 you have no issues. I've had mine on for 10 plu hour gaming sessions a few times and have never had any issues.

@Streetguru never heared about that brand, do they exists here in europe? But I'm also not such big of a fan for additional hardware for such minor additional things like recording. 

 

@TheFlyingTraut money dosn't matter at all. If I had the space I would go with 80"+ directly so yea. Do you know what exactly is better in the motion processing on sony? Based on this comparision, the LG is a bit ahead compared to the Sony: https://www.rtings.com/tv/tools/compare/sony-a9g-vs-lg-c9/833/802

Rtings is decent for their ratings but they still include sound quality in their overall scores which in today's space is a little ridiculous. 

 

The sony x1 processor is just superior. The a9 gen 2 on the LG is very good, just not as good as the sony with their own processing. 

 

The sony delivers more natural color tones and better motion handling in their processors. If you want the more vibrant colors go LG. 

 

The TCL 6 series he is referring to is a very good tv for what it is. But what you're looking it is something completely out of the ballpark for comparison to that tv. It's a great budget option but if you want the best you're looking in the right space. 

 

You can't go wrong with either panel honestly.

TCL just makes cheap and effective TVs

You can always go the android TV route as well with something like this, I'm pretty sure you can just hook up a USB hard drive and record using it. Just double check that.

So after visiting the local retailers, I decided to go with the LG C9. All Sony A9G's in the store had a slight tilt backwards and after the first few action with Android TV, I think I'm more a fan on webOS.

Good choice.
