The LG C2 OLED offers excellent picture quality, superior performance in dark rooms, and great gaming features. It provides perfect blacks and a wide viewing angle, making it ideal for movie enthusiasts and gamers. However, it's at a premium price and less bright in well-lit rooms. The Sony X90K LCD is less expensive and performs well in bright rooms with good peak brightness. It's suitable for general TV watching, including sports and news, but has limited viewing angles and contrast compared to the LG C2. It's a solid choice if you're looking for value and a good all-around TV. Give Feedback

CNET

David Katzmaier | November 2022
"The C2 offers image quality that's a clear step above any non-OLED TV I've seen. The C2 is rare among high-end TVs in that all four of its HDMI ports support 4K/120, great for hard-core gamers with multiple next-gen devices. The C2 is plenty bright enough for just about any viewing environment. It also outperforms QLED TVs like the Samsung QN90B and TCL 6-Series. That's why I consider the LG C2 the best high-end TV for the money of 2022."

Al Griffin | December 2022
"As Sony’s next-to-flagship LCD TV, the X90K series delivers impressive performance for the price. The XR90K had fairly accurate out-of-box color. The TV’s multi-position stand lets you either set the screen flush with any stand its mounted on or elevate it to clear space for a soundbar. With the latter option, you get around 3 inches of clearance enough to accommodate most soundbars. The X90K’s excellent suite of gaming features ranks it up there with the best 120 Hz 4K TVs."
