Sony’s Next-Gen OLED Is ‘Best 4K TV’ of 2022, Says Panel of Experts |

Value Electronics, an A/V retailer located on the outskirts of New York City, has been holding an annual ‘TV Shootout’ for nearly two decades. Shootout traditionally brings together a panel of TV test experts and puts them in front of the best 4k tvs to decide which is the best – an honor Sony won this year for its A95K QD-OLED model.

With the rise of 8K TVs, the Value Electronics test expanded in 2022 to include a separate test for that category, with LG’s Z2 OLED model taking the 8K crown in this year’s Shootout.

4K TVs competing in TV Shootout 2022:

  • LG G2 Gallery Series OLED
  • Samsung QN95B Quantum Dot Mini LED
  • Samsung S95B QD-OLED
  • Sony XR-A95K QD-OLED (winner)
  • Sony XR-X95K Mini LED

8K TVs competing in TV Shootout 2022:

  • LG Z2 OLED (winner)
  • Samsung QN900B Quantum Dot Mini LED
  • Sony XR-Z9K mini LED TV

To create a level playing field for the assessment, each TV is first tuned by a professional TV calibrator. The sets are then laid out side by side along with a 32-inch Sony professional broadcast reference monitor and fed test patterns and regular movie scenes over a video distribution network. This arrangement allows expert entrants to rate TVs simultaneously, with their votes tabulated to determine the winner in each category.
