Variable refresh rate, 4K at 120Hz, ALLM, and eARC are standard across the line

Last year’s TV lineup from Sony took a bit of criticism since several sets were unable to take advantage of next-gen gaming features on the PlayStation 5 that shipped in November. Even if you look right now, the spread of HDMI 2.1 features is pretty sad. Sony never really acknowledged this as a mistake, believing that customers purchase its TVs for different reasons and not everyone needs every box checked off.

What a difference a year makes.

Good that they're responding to criticism, and an interesting line up, but, "The Verge"?

I thought that website had died of shame! :D

I've never been a fan of Sony LCD sets, imo PQ always seemed to lag behind the competition. But last year I installed an OLED set for a client and I have to say it was excellent, both sound & picture.

I prefer Oled to any other screen I have seen and when I compare my LG to my old Panasonic LCD the Pani looks really poor.
Samsung Qled look good as well.
I think LG are the only company that make Oled panels and supply them to other TV manufacturers.
