Best TV 2020: 10 big-screen TVs worth buying in Australia this year

[ad_1]

What about more affordable TV options?

We realise that the best TV isn’t always something most people can afford – that’s why we’ve put together a list of the best cheap 4K TV deals in Australia. Whether you’re after a small or large telly, you’re likely to find a suitable option for your budget.

There’s never a bad time to buy one of the best TVs of 2020. So far, we’ve seen massive discounts on last year’s top models, and in the coming months we expect to see a slew of new TVs from Sony, LG, Samsung, Hisense and TCL. Before long, those same tellies will start progressively cheaper as we lead into the second half of the year. 

Speaking of, Samsung has just announced its crop of 2020 QLED TVs that include newer versions of the Q90, Q80, Q70 and Q60, and LG should have its 2020 OLEDs out in the next month or two.

If you can’t wait a few more months until new models arrive, however, there are plenty of amazing TVs from 2019 that are still well-worth buying – often at significantly reduced prices. 

Below you’ll find a list of 10 TVs that we can wholeheartedly recommend to Aussies. That includes sets from the likes of TCL, which offer great performance at a really good price, and high-end options like QLED TVs from Samsung and OLEDs from LG.

We’re expecting a number of new television sets to hit the market in the coming months, but with 2020 only having just begun, we’re still recommending the best TVs from the previous year until their replacements officially come around.

8. Sony Bravia X9500G Series

A beautiful 4K HDR TV that desperately needs an attached soundbar

X1 Ultimate Processor

Netflix Calibrated Mode

Motion handling, 4K upscaling

Poor sound quality

Mediocre 4K/HDR black levels

OK, so you don’t want (or can’t afford) Sony’s new A9G OLED or the fantastic-but-pricey Z9G. So what should you buy? Check out the X9500G series. With superb 4K image clarity, powerful SDR-to-HDR remastering, and a smooth direct LED backlight, Sony is offering something very different with the X9500G. 

Right out of the box, the best way to describe the image quality of the X9500G is… well, natural. It’s not flashy. It’s not overly bright. Colors aren’t oversaturated. It’s just a really natural picture with subdued colors and great black levels perfect for HD/SDR content. That said, if you’re the kind of person that wants a bit more pop to your images all you need to do is turn on Live Color in the picture settings. This mode works on HD/SDR content to add a bit more color saturation to the image and helps to make the image ‘pop’ in a way that really grabs your attention.

It’s a shame that poor sound quality ruined such a great 4K/HDR TV, however, taken by itself, the Sony X9500G is an immaculate screen with a ton of potential.
