The 5 Best TVs For PS5 - Summer 2022 Reviews

Updated
Best PS5 TVs

If you're looking for the best gaming TV for PS5, there are a few great options available. The PS5 supports higher resolutions and faster refresh rates than the PS4, like 4k @ 120Hz. It supports HDMI 2.1 bandwidth, so TVs with HDMI 2.1 support can fully take advantage of the PS5's capabilities. Sony released a firmware update to add variable refresh rate (VRR) support to the PS5, so you'll also want to get a TV with HDMI Forum VRR support to get a tear-free gaming experience.

We've bought and tested more than 365 TVs, and below are our recommendations for the best gaming TVs for PS5 that you can buy. Also, see our picks for the best gaming TVs, the best 4k TVs, and the best HDR TVs.


  1. Best TV For PS5

    The best TV for PS5 that we've tested is the Sony A80J OLED. It's a fantastic gaming TV with stunning picture quality, especially in dark rooms. It's one of Sony's "Perfect for PS5" certified TVs, which offer a few unique features for PS5 gamers, like Auto HDR Tone Mapping that adjusts the HDR settings, so you get the best picture quality while gaming. It also automatically recognizes when you turn on the PS5 and puts itself into Game Mode for low input lag. Thanks to its HDMI 2.1 bandwidth, you can play 4k games up to 120 fps from the PS5, and it also has VRR to reduce screen tearing.

    In terms of gaming performance, it has low enough input lag for a responsive gaming experience and has a near-instantaneous response time that results in smooth motion. It also displays perfect blacks thanks to its OLED panel, without any blooming around bright objects. Sadly, it isn't available in a smaller size, so if you want something smaller, the LG C2 OLED is available in 42 and 48 inches, but it doesn't have the same PS5 features that the Sony TV offers.

  2. Best PS5 TV For A Bright Room

    The Samsung QN90B QLED is the best TV for PlayStation 5 for a bright room that we've tested. It's a flagship TV with a great selection of additional features and impressive picture quality. It features a Mini LED backlight that allows it to get extremely bright, and combined with its great local dimming feature, HDR content stands out incredibly well, making it a great choice for HDR gaming. It doesn't look as good as the Sony A80J OLED in a dark room, though, as there's more noticeable blooming around bright objects and blacks aren't as deep.

    It has a 120Hz panel with HDMI 2.1 bandwidth, meaning you can play 4k games up to 120 fps on the PS5. It has HDMI Forum VRR support that works with the PS5, and there's a unique Game Bar feature that shows helpful info like the current frame rate in your game. Gaming feels responsive as it has extremely low input lag and excellent motion handling, thanks to its quick response time.

  3. Best Mid-Range TV For PS5

    The Hisense U8G is the best 4k TV for PS5 in the mid-range category we've tested. Although you don't get the same proprietary features as the Sony A80J OLED, and it doesn't deliver the same perfect black levels, it's still an impressive TV. Gaming feels responsive thanks to its very quick response time, so there's minimal motion blur behind fast-moving objects, and it has low input lag for a responsive gaming experience, with no noticeable delay between your actions with the controller and the action on-screen.

    You can use the PS5 to its full capabilities with this TV thanks to the HDMI 2.1 bandwidth on two of its ports, and it has HDMI Forum VRR support to reduce screen tearing. This TV was replaced in 2022 by the Hisense U8H, which appears to be an improvement over the already great U8G. We haven't finished testing it yet, but when we do, we'll update this article.

  4. Best Budget TV For PS5

    If you're on a budget, the best TV for gaming on the PS5 is the TCL 5 Series/S546 2021 QLED. It's a great gaming TV with a few features to improve the user experience. Unlike the cheaper Insignia F50 QLED, it supports variable refresh rate technology to reduce screen tearing on the PS5, and combined with its great response time and fantastic low input lag, it delivers a smoother gaming experience overall. Sadly, it's still a bit of a step down from the Hisense U8G as it's limited to a 60Hz refresh rate.

    In terms of the picture quality, it displays deep blacks thanks to its high native contrast ratio, and while the local dimming helps improve the contrast, it doesn't do much to improve the overall picture quality in some dark scenes. Sadly, the color accuracy isn't the best as there's a red tint, but if you don't care about image accuracy and want great performance, you'll be happy with this TV. If you want better overall picture quality, the Hisense U6G is a great alternative, but it doesn't support VRR, so gaming isn't as smooth.

  5. Best Cheap TV For PS5

    If you just bought a PS5 and want a cheap upgrade for your TV, the best cheap TV for PS5 we've tested is the Insignia F50 QLED. The biggest advantage you'll get by upgrading to a cheap TV like this is the 4k native resolution. It lacks any advanced gaming features, like variable refresh rate support or HDMI 2.1 bandwidth, that you'll often find on more expensive models, so you can't take full advantage of the PS5. It delivers a decent gaming experience with a very good response time and incredibly low input lag, ensuring a smooth, responsive gaming experience.

    It has excellent contrast, decent peak brightness, and great accuracy out of the box, so as far as picture quality goes, it's not bad overall. It lacks a local dimming feature and can't get very bright in HDR, so gaming in HDR adds very little over SDR. As expected for a cheaper TV, it has limited picture processing, so if you watch a lot of older, low-resolution content like DVDs, they don't look as good as they could with a more powerful TV.
