Forums - Sony Discussion - Sony makes awesome Tv's for gamers in mind,relative converted me.

My sister's boyfriend had an LG it was great. He returned it for a Sony X900H and it was beauiful , I was amazed how good it looked he recommended paying half and I pay the rest for my own. I was thinking and maybe I should take his offer?

Depends on how nice you are to them.

If you get to use the TV at the moment anyway, then paying half the cost of it seems pointless. If at some point in the future you want to own the TV, it'll probably be cheaper to buy a new one at that point. Nothing becomes cheap fast like last-year's electronics.

So, 1 year later? I'm not an expert in tv buying? but, it was eye candy I was willng to pay.

Careful when buying new Sony TVs. There has been alot of miss marketing and over promises.

Old article however have a read and see first if Sony has addressed the issues first before spending big on the TVs.



Let's hope Sony will continue to update the TV so they don't go back on their word of it being "PS5-ready", but despite that, that model is extremely gorgeous for it's lower budget price and I would highly recommend.

First of all i need some context here.
Is it that your sisters boyfriend said He would pay half the cost for one for you and all you would have to do is pay the other half?. So he would have his TV and you would have yours?.
Or Is it that he wants you to pay half to use the one he already owns?. If so i dont see the point in paying half for the one he already owns, as that would just end up making problems imo if you or him or you sister etc wants to all use it at the same time who has the most say?. Id just continue using it as is and save up for your own one.
But if he is willing to pay half for one for you then why not?. If you have the other half you might as well get a deal.



That's the TV I been hearing won't work well with PS5's. Which is funny. Sony's own products not working well with their own products.



Bite my shiny metal cockpit!

I can't speak to that specific model, but Sony does tend to have very good image quality and would be a good choice on that basis.

To the issues with PS5 people mention, those generally revolve around VRR (variable refresh rate, which negates tearing) and perhaps latency.
I'm not sure if latency is something that could be improved in firmware update, but regardless only is critical if you are top end competive player.

VRR is something with abstract appeal to gamers, but translating it from theory into practice has been more complicated on the display side of things.
Also, very few people right now have this feature on their TVs (and PS5 currently hasn't enabled support, possibly due to Sony's TV chipset issue).
Also fair to say that VRR will never be the default assumption because PS5 must work with the many TVs that lack this feature, so games will always
be optimized for achieving a stable frame rate (which is desirable even with VRR, since variable frame timing is also a negative, even if less than tearing).
Given PS5 looks to have most stable frame rates of the nextgen, I think it's fair to say VRR isn't necessarily the top priority for alot of gamers on PS5.
So it's more of theoretical issue for technically (usually PC) orientated) gamers who want every theoretical benefit even before they see it in action.

I would say if you want to (and can, don't break the bank!) buy a great looking TV now and can get good price for it, then go ahead and consider it.
Fair to say that in a year or 2 it is likely Sony will release new models with full VRR support (at which point PS5 will enable VRR support) but that is
a general truism of consumer electronics, and there isn't much sense in waiting forever just so you can win more points in theoretical tech superiority.
All the more so when PS5 currently doesn't enable any VRR support even if the TV does support it, so there is literally no difference you could notice now.

As in, may not fully support a feature that PS5 does not currently enable but might in the future, a feature few people understand or have experienced.
Also fair to say, PS5 is successfully demonstrating stable high frame rates which tend to minimize the "issue" driving VRR in the first place.
Console games of this gen will never assume VRR capable TVs because it just isn't standard enough in consumer televisions,
so games will all be optimized for stable frame rates, making VRR more of a technical bragging right than core consumer concern.
(not to say it's not nice, but if somebody wants TV now, and PS5 doesn't currently enable VRR even if TV can handle it, I wouldn't call it reason to not buy a TV)

Sony ALWAYS  has the best picture quality. it does not matter what technical info the other TV has; SONY will always be better.................and more expensive.

My TV has 11 years and it looks better than some of today's TVs .....weird because even some of those are 4k.
