The annual Consumer Electronics Show may not have taken up any physical space in Las Vegas this year, but that didn’t keep the heavyweights in TV manufacturing from introducing a slew of new models for 2021.
The good news? Bigger screens and better technology are becoming even more affordable. The also good news? Buying a TV with cash back can be a major way to save money.

In a nutshell, here’s what the major TV players are focusing on for 20221:
LG’s OLED TVs have been the standard in premium picture quality for a good five years now, but always costing a small fortune. Fortunately, their prices continue to drop. The new G1-series of OLEDS will sit in the middle of LG’s OLED range and utilize the company’s new “evo” technology, promising a brighter picture—one of the few drawbacks to OLED TVs. LG is also touting its QNED LCD lineup, which uses mini-LEDs to craft a better picture.
Looking to return to its brilliant reputation earned during the plasma TV heyday, Panasonic’s showcasing new OLEDS this year, including the new JZ2000 TVs, arriving in 55- and 65-inch variants and featuring low latency, HDMI 2.1 variant and high refresh rates, and a new HCX Pro AI processor.
Micro LED tech was the star of CES 20221 for Samsung, even if it’s not even close to being on the market yet. The company showed off a 110” model that, by all accounts, looked incredible. Otherwise, the Q900 Neo QLED series might be the most impressive from Samsung this year.
Sony is finally embracing gaming consoles as much as you’d they would, as makers of the PlayStation. All of Sony’s 2021 TVs will feature HDMI 2.1 ports, a feature that – among other things – lets gamers have faster response times from when they press a button on the controller to when the corresponding action happens on screen. On the OLED front, the Sony A90J Master Series OLED TV might be the new king of picture quality.
TCL’s rise among the TV titans looks continue in 2021 with cost-cutting models that come very close the picture quality levels of the more established brands. Although 8K content is incredibly rare, TCL is jumping on the bandwagon, with its 6-series 8K TVs using the company’s mini-LED technology.
