Discover the LG GX Gallery Series
For several years, LG had no competition in OLED TV sets. While Sony introduced the first OLED in 2007, it was LG that initially made significant investments to advance the technology and bring it to its high-end TV line.
LG’s efforts have paid off and been wildly successful. Their OLED TVs are consistently ranked as the best of the best. LG is no longer alone in the OLED space, with Sony producing excellent models like the A8H series, and other manufacturers are jumping into the OLED fray.
LG, however, is not standing still. And their experience with several years of OLED production allows them to continue to refine the state of the art. With the new 2020 LG GX Series, they have done just that in both performance and design. Keep reading to see if the LG GX Series is the next TV for your modern Austin, TX home.
Sony Continues the March to OLED Perfection
If you follow TV technology at all or happen to have a friend with an OLED TV, you know that OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diode) technology generates picture quality that is hard to beat. When it comes to movies, OLED has the best black level performance for top-quality high-contrast and dark scenes. Beyond that, the self-lighting pixels - similar to the way yesterday’s plasma technology worked - has accuracy advantages over even the best full-array LED-backlit sets.
While Sony introduced OLED to the world way back in 2007, they initially did not focus on it as LCD/LED technology still had a long ramp of innovation ahead of it. Sony has refocused on OLED in the past few years, offering it as a high-end alternative that vies with its best LED sets – and the best available from any manufacturer.
For 2020, the new Sony A8H Series OLED TVs continue the company’s quest for ultimate picture quality. Read on to see if the A8H is the right upgrade for your next TV in your Austin, TX home.

Keeping up with today’s TV technology might seem like a daunting task. If you fondly remember the days of CRT TVs, that technology evolved but didn’t radically change for decades. LED technology has dramatically altered TVs over the past 20 years. Even if you don’t know what the differences are, you likely have heard about LED, OLED, QLED, and Micro LED.
Samsung is a company, like Sony, that often goes its own way. They have developed proprietary technology across many areas where they see an opportunity to deliver features and performance a cut above the competition. To that end, Samsung developed QLED technology for the high end of their flat panel TV line.
