*We also have Hisense's 85UX TV & Sony's 85X95L on display next to each-other.

The results are in and Sony's A95L is now crowned "The King of 4K TV for the 2023 Model Year"!  Tied for 2nd place is LG's G3 and Samsung's S95C.  The best LCD TV is Samsung's QN95C, but all of the TVs came in very close to each other so they are all true winners for their exceptional picture quality and very nice enhancements for this new model year!  For our 8K TV Shootout, LG's Z2 8K OLED TV is the King of 8K TV

Here are the detailed results of the judges voting, so everyone can use the results in every picture performance category to select the best TV for each person's use-case.

The 4K ballot lists the top two categories are both after our top professional calibration and the bottom two listed are how the TVs compete in each picture quality category in their best out of the box picture mode, so not calibrated, just bring the TV home and select the recommended picture mode in the user menu. Here you go for the detailed evaluation ratings of the premium cutting edge flagship TVs from the leading brands:


The TVs are randomly selected from our inventory.  We do a proper break-in to stabilize the TVs before calibration & the latest firmware is installed if needed, but only publicly available updates are accepted.
