Okay, not sure this is the right place to ask this.
How would the picture quality of a mid-level newer TV compare to my ~6-year-old set?
I currently have a Samsung set (UN55H7150 https://www.rtings.com/tv/reviews/samsung/h7150) and still think that it looks pretty great. I think it was like one of the nicest 55" sets you could get at the time. But prices are so low now and I kind of want to check out 4K and HDR with my PS5 next week.
I'm thinking like a TCL 4 series, if it's possible to get in on that $148 deal next week. There aren't even comparable numbers/metrics to compare the two sets bc my current TV is older. Is there a chance that my current TV would have better picture quality than a new set, or is pretty much every mid-level and above newer set better than anything available 6 years ago? I'd love to save up a bit more for a nicer TV rn, and probably will, but if I can get a decent upgrade for $148ish, that's an attractive option.
Well according to Sony's press release it shouldn't.I actually bought the X900H a couple of days ago and I have absolutely no regrets, the TV is amazing! Glad to hear that the 4k/120 blur shouldn't affect the PS5, let's hope the VRR update comes soon.
What is the "$148 deal"?
Most any 4K Samsung set will be an upgrade over what you have, but if you want a big jump you should get a set with a "Full-Array Local Dimming" backlight. That will give you great HDR.

I would say wait till this time next year. By then all the models will have hdmi 2.1 Dolby vision 120 hertz panels etc. this year is the first wave so I don’t expect much from tvs outside of oleds. As for monitors they tend to just have better picture and response times. I have to get a new one because mine broke and I need it for work so I’m gonna get the gigabyte 32 inch 1440 p one and I’ll probably get another in a year or 2 that can do 4K 120. For now 32 inch 1ms response time at 1440 120 will be fine
This has been explained so many times. It does not need 48Gbps to point out that it is 40Gbps. All you need is 40.1Gbps for 4k@120hz HDR 10bit 444 and 8k@60hz. 48Gbps is only beneficial for 4k@120hz 12bit.The CX isn't full HDMI 2.1 as it's only 40gbs
I bought this for 2.1 hdmi, as its stated in the description on this website. I cannot find any mention of 2.1 anywhere on the manuals or on the app. I cannot even find this TV on the Sony website. Which port is meant to be 2.1?
I really dislike arc. Its not stable at all. Sometimes it would loose connection and I have to turn off the receiver and start it again so it can get signal. Is there any reason using it over optical audio? I have only standard surround setup, no fancy atmos or something, is optical audio enough for 5.1.?
I bought a PS5, but I don’t have a 4K tv yet. Do I wait for next year’s models and just play some PS4 games on my current tv or do I buy a cheap option and upgrade in two years?
Sony XH90 is the cheapest investment, and best bang for the buck so far. It's getting pretty cheap for 55".
I've tried on my 4K HDR tv that's HDMI 2.0, and I tell you guys to never buy an HDMI 2.0 for PS5. PS5 forces 12-bit 4:4:4 at 60fps so you need HDMI 2.1, even at current capped 32Gbps it sends 12-bit 4:2:2 120Hz but TV's seem to recognize 8-bit instead according to Vincent from HDTVTest.
I can get the Costco model, 90CH, for $970 at 65 inches.
Finally got my xh90.
There is a nice black Friday deal here in Greece (799 for the 55 model) and got it immediately.
It is amazing of course! Even playing ps4 games feel half a gen better compared to my 7 years old Bravia.
Sadly, media markt betrayed me... No ps5 yet...
Found one TV - seems to be the only one: https://www.rtings.com/tv/reviews/samsung/q50-q50r-qledMonitors? Yes. TV's? I doubt it.
