The LG NANO90 is a midrange-priced TV and is often significantly less expensive, which could be attractive if you are looking for value. On the other hand, the Sony X90L is an upper midrange-priced TV and often significantly more expensive, which may offer better quality and features. If cost is a major concern and you are satisfied with a decent quality TV, the LG might be the right choice. However, if you're willing to invest more for potentially improved performance and features, the Sony could be worthwhile. Give Feedback
