2021 OLED Discussion (LG/Panasonic/Sony etc.)

Would seem over the years TV technology as far as aesthetics and picture quality is racing ahead at such a rate that by the time long term faults are identified, the tech has already moved on with its own new set of issues.

From what I can tell from reviews and from feedback on here... Panasonic, Sony and maybe the new Phillips (to be confirmed) are all pretty good. The LG's seem to be very slightly behind on some things but ahead on others. I've also gathered that they ALL have some issues and are flawed in some way or another... with the Phillips still to be fully checked out.

PS: Also gathered that the Panasonic HZ2000 range seem to be preferred over the newer JZ2000 range.

All TVs from all manufacturers use OLED panels manufactured by LG displays. Sony, Panasonic, Philips etc don't make OLED panels, they buy them from LG.

The difference is whether they're using the latest-gen panels, a few higher-end TVs use the "Evo" panels and their own electronics suite inside the TV.

I'm at the early stage of research into a new OLED TV and fancy the JZ2000 when prices drop. Is there a reason why some prefer the HZ2000? I understand it has the same Technics tuned speakers?

I like that part of the new Panasonic JZ1500 review:

"Compared to the more expensive Sony A90J, I preferred the JZ1500 for nearly all of its image attributes over the Sony, including much better out of the box accuracy to the standards and its brighter peak highlight performance and more natural-looking image over the Sony’s more processed and sharpened image. The Sony was capable of slightly more brightness with larger areas of colour or white within the frame and slightly brighter colours on extremely colourful HDR test content, but when in isolation this advantage in a side-by-side was less obvious to see with normal HDR content."

Certainly a very positive review by Phil. :)
I'm gonna wait for a comparison (with luck) with the Phillips 936 ;)

The VRR firmware update is now available for supporting 2021 Sony models in the Europe and Asia Pacific regions.

This firmware is direct download only at this time and must be installed by USB update (follow the same instructions as the current firmware on the Sony Support page). There is no changelog at this time since the Sony Support page hasn't been updated but it is confirmed that this update enables Variable Refresh Rate.
