The 6 Best Monitors For PS5 - Winter 2024 Reviews

Best PS5 Monitors

When looking for a monitor for your PS5, it's beneficial to get a display that can take full advantage of the console and its features. The PS5 supports HDMI 2.1 bandwidth for 4k signals up to 120Hz, so 4k monitors that also support HDMI 2.1 bandwidth can make full use of it. You can also find 1440p or 1080p displays for cheaper, as the console supports both resolutions, but those usually don't support HDMI 2.1 bandwidth. On top of that, the PS5 supports HDMI Forum VRR to reduce screen tearing, so it's beneficial to get a monitor with this VRR format.

Besides the compatibility, getting a monitor with good motion handling is important if you want minimal blur behind fast-moving objects. You should also consider the monitor's input lag, but most have low enough input lag anyway. Many gaming monitors are available in 27 and 32-inch screen sizes, and choosing the right size really depends on personal preference. While you can get an ultrawide monitor, the PS5 doesn't support ultrawide gaming, so you'll see black bars on the sides.

We've bought and tested more than 300 monitors, and below are our recommendations for the best gaming monitors for PS5 that you can buy. Also, see our recommendations for the best 4k monitors, the best monitors for PS4, and the best 120Hz monitors.

  1. Best Monitor For PS5

    The Dell Alienware AW3225QF is the best monitor for PS5 that we've tested. It's the first 4k @ 240Hz QD-OLED available in North America and delivers outstanding performance. You can buy the monitor directly through Dell's website. While the console can't fully use the monitor's fast 240Hz refresh rate, you can still play 4k games up to 120Hz without issue, thanks to its HDMI 2.1 bandwidth. Its fast refresh rate is great if you also want a display for PC gaming. The console can't be connected to the monitor at 1440p, though this isn't a problem if you're using the PS5's maximum resolution of 4k.

    HDR games look fantastic, with rich, vivid colors, for an immersive experience experience on the 32-inch display. It has near-perfect contrast, displaying deep blacks next to bright highlights, so it's a great choice for playing your PS5 in a darker room. Motion is also crisp and sharp, with a remarkably quick response time, perfect for fast-moving games. Note that burn-in might occur if you constantly play the same game and there are fixed, static elements on the screen. If this concerns you, check out the Samsung Odyssey Neo G8 S32BG85. There's no risk of burn-in with the Samsung, though its contrast and color performance are notably worse, and it has a slower response time.

  2. Best Upper Mid-Range Monitor For PS5

    If you want to save some money and still want a high-end option, check out the Sony INZONE M9. You don't get the same remarkable picture quality as the Dell Alienware AW3225QF because it's not a QD-OLED, and its local dimming feature doesn't compare to the near-perfect contrast on the Dell. This means it can't display the same deep blacks next to bright highlights, but the picture quality is still great, as there isn't much blooming in dark scenes, and it has an adequate local dimming feature. If you want something with Mini LED backlighting and better picture quality, consider the INNOCN 27M2V, but it's sometimes harder to find.

    Regardless, the Sony is great for the PS5 because it has a few features only the console can use, like Auto HDR Tone Mapping, which optimizes the HDR performance and settings based on the game. As expected, it works without issue with the PS5 as it supports HDMI 2.1 bandwidth and variable refresh rate (VRR) to help reduce screen tearing. It also has a great response time with both 120Hz and 60Hz signals, resulting in crisp motion. Lastly, its design shares similarities with the PS5, meaning it'll look great in your setup next to the console.

  3. Best Mid-Range Monitor For PS5

    If you want a mid-range monitor that costs less money, consider the LG 27GR93U-B. It doesn't have the same proprietary features for console use compared to the Sony INZONE M9, like Auto HDR Tone Mapping. It also lacks a local dimming feature, but this is normal as cheaper monitors tend to have worse picture quality than more expensive options. Still, it's excellent for gaming thanks to its fast response time, making your favorite games look sharp, with very little blur behind fast-moving objects.

    It's fully compatible with everything the PS5 offers, supporting 4k @ 120Hz gaming thanks to its full HDMI 2.1 bandwidth. This includes support for (VRR), which makes gameplay smoother. While the monitor's 27-inch display is a good size, larger displays can create a more immersive experience. If you're interested in that, check out the Gigabyte M32U. It performs similarly but has a larger, more immersive 32-inch display. However, a larger screen costs more, so the LG offers the best value.

  4. Best Lower Mid-Range Monitor For PS5

    If you still find the LG 27GR93U-B out of your price range, you can save money with a lower-resolution monitor, like the Dell Alienware AW2724DM. You don't get the same detailed images as on the LG, and it can't take full advantage of the console with 4k signals up to 120Hz because it doesn't have HDMI 2.1 bandwidth. However, the Dell supports HDMI Forum VRR, which many 1440p monitors don't support, and this helps reduce screen tearing in games.

    Fast-moving objects have minimal motion blur thanks to the fast response time at any refresh rate. This monitor has a significant downside: it doesn't have an audio output or speakers, so you need to use an HDMI audio extractor with the PS5 to have the console's audio play through your speakers. If you plan on using headphones, this isn't a problem, as you can connect any pair of standard headphones directly to the DualSense controller. If you prefer getting a monitor you can directly connect speakers to, you can also consider the LG 27GP850-B/27GP83B-B, but it doesn't support VRR with the PS5.

  5. Best Budget Monitor For PS5

    There are some good options if you're looking for the best PS5 monitor on a budget. The Dell G2724D is an excellent budget gaming monitor that's a step-down model from the Dell Alienware AW2724DM, so there are a few differences. It doesn't display as many colors, particularly in HDR, and it doesn't have a USB hub either. On top of that, the G2724D doesn't have an overclock feature like the AW2724DM, but that only makes a difference if you also plan on using it for PC gaming.

    Besides these minor differences, it's similar to the AW2724DM, especially regarding PS5 gaming. It supports VRR with the console, which most budget monitors don't support. Motion looks incredible, even at 60Hz, so there's minimal blur trail with fast-moving objects. This monitor also has some downsides, as it doesn't have speakers or an audio output. It also has limited picture quality, so if you want a budget monitor with much better picture quality, especially in HDR, check out the AOC Q27G3XMN. It uses Mini LED backlighting with a good local dimming feature but has some bugs and doesn't support VRR with the PS5.

  6. Best Cheap Monitor For PS5

    If you're looking for a cheap monitor with great gaming performance that works well with the PS5, check out the Gigabyte GS27QC. Like the Dell G2724D, it has a 1440p resolution but a VA panel instead of the IPS panel you'll find on the Dell. This means it has worse viewing angles, and you'll see dark trails behind darker, fast-moving objects. However, if you play your PS5 in a dark room, you may prefer this type of panel, as it has better contrast and displays deep blacks next to bright highlights. You may also like the curved screen, as it can create a more immersive experience for some, though because of its narrow viewing angles and limited ergonomics, it isn't great for co-op gaming.

    Though it can't downscale a 4k @ 120Hz signal for a more detailed image and doesn't support VRR with the PS5, there aren't any compatibility issues with the console. Unlike the Dell, this monitor also has an audio output to connect speakers, so it works well if you want your PS5's audio to play through speakers.
