Sony A9G is a fantastic choice for most uses—especially for TV shows and movies, which is great since it runs on Android TV and has access to popular apps like Netflix and Hulu. It’s still a good option for gaming, but lacks a few wanted features.

Product Snapshot

Overview

The Sony A9G OLED is the brand’s mid-range option among OLED TVs released in 2019. It lays claims to several quality-of-life technologies to improve a user’s viewing experience when playing video games or watching TV shows and movies.

Its HDR performance, color accuracy, and wide color gamut are claimed to be great due to OLED plus Pixel Contrast Booster and Picture Processor X1 Ultimate.

Sony promises gamers lightning-fast response time and low input lag from Game Mode. Give our Sony A9G OLED review a read to get the full picture on what experts think. And it doesn’t hurt to check out today’s top-rated TVs.

Consensus

our Verdict

The Sony A9G is a phenomenal choice for most uses, though it’s better suited for enjoying cinema. Due to it running on Android TV, its interface is clean and easy to use, and has access to a large portion of streaming services.

And with the Acoustic Surface Audio+, sound quality gets a nice boost across the board. It’s only slightly behind the curve without access to VRR.

Reason to Buy

  • Contrast ratio is virtually limitless
  • Impressive color accuracy
  • Fantastic HDR performance
  • Very wide viewing angles
  • Good sound quality

Reason to Avoid

  • Sub-par peak brightness in well-lit rooms
  • Risk of permanent burn-in
  • Lacks HDR10+ support
  • Needs color calibration for best experience
  • Lacks VRR (Variable Refresh Rate)
