    U.S. markets are using LG OLED panels, just as Sony is. All these OLED TVs look very good, but they do not look the same. The magic is in picture processing, and Sony has picture processing perfected. The Sony has less judder when displaying 24p movie content.

    Pros

    Out of the box, the A9G shows impressive color performance, though not the most immediately accurate. Whites are a bit cool, and secondary colors skew quite a bit. The TV's ability to display perfect blacks and bright whites in the same frame enables plenty of shadow detail to come through.

    Pros
    • Slim, minimalist design

    The Sony A9G is an excellent TV for most uses, whether it's for watching HDR movies or for use as a PC monitor. It has remarkable dark room performance and its exceptional motion handling results in clear images with nearly no visible motion blur. Its low input lag and 120Hz refresh rate provide a responsive gaming experience, but unfortunately, it doesn't support any VRR technology.

    The Sony Master Series A9G OLED TV is not only an excellent smart TV; it's also the best-looking, best-sounding TV on the market. The OLED display is superb, with rich color and deep blacks, excellent HDR support, and great overall performance. The big downside is the price, which is dramatically higher than those for competing premium 4K TVs.
