Which is the best 4K 49inch tv for gaming?

Hi! First, I wanted to say that I love this page and I find its information very useful! Second, I have an Xbox One X and I am considering a new 4k tv but it can’t be bigger than 49 inches. I was trying to decide between the Samsungs Q6FN and the NU8000 but I found out that both of them display a 60Hz panel for the 49inch models. I was wondering how that would affect the gaming experience since Xbox One X can do 120Hz. I wonder if 60hz are fine and whether 4k will look smooth at 60hz or whether I should look into the Sony X900F if it drops in price this Black Friday. My budget is around $600 or $700 with taxes and those samsung models are currently on sale but the Sony isn’t.

    I also am looking for a 49 inch mostly gaming tv , but i have a PS4 Pro, mostly game in a dark room at night, i was comparing the Sony 900F, Samsung Q6FN and Samsung NU8000, i found out the Q6FN was 60HZ so i took it off my list, I was under the impression the NU8000 was 120HZ, at least it is stated as 120 on the Best Buy website, the NU8000 at Best Buy will be $597.99 on sale for Black friday, the Q6FN is on sale now for $649.99, the lowest i have seen the Sony is $999.99, so that makes it $250 to $300 higher,

    So i was also wondering but between the three if the Sony is that much better and worth the investment.

    120 Hz definitely looks great with an Xbox One S/X, but keep in mind that that is only supported when gaming at 1080p or 1440p, so there are some tradeoffs. Between the Samsungs, only the 49" NU8000 supports FreeSync, the 49" Q6FN does not. Between the NU8000 and the X900F, you are probably better off with the NU8000, as it has much lower input lag and FreeSync support. The X900F is a bit better if you game in a dark room though.
