If you have the PS5 and are looking to upgrade your TV, there are a few things to look out for. The PS5 isn't just a big leap over the PS4 in terms of rendering performance; it also supports higher resolutions and faster refresh rates, like 4k @ 120Hz. It also supports HDMI 2.1 bandwidth, and while you can still get an amazing gaming experience without it, TVs with HDMI 2.1 support can take full advantage of the PS5's capabilities. Also, although the PS5 doesn't currently support variable refresh rate (VRR), it's been promised by Sony ever since the PS5 was announced. It's expected to be added in an upcoming firmware update, so it's important to find a TV that also supports VRR.

We've tested more than 100 TVs under our latest test bench, 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 OLED TV For PS5: LG C1 OLED

    The LG C1 OLED is the best TV for PS5 in the OLED category that we've tested. It's an excellent gaming TV, with outstanding low input lag and a near-instantaneous response time, resulting in crystal-clear motion with no blur behind fast-moving objects. It also supports a slew of extra gaming features, including FreeSync, G-SYNC, and HDMI Forum VRR support. The PS5 doesn't support these features yet, but we expect the C1 to work with Sony's promised VRR feature when it's finally released.

    Like all OLED displays, it has a perfect contrast ratio, with deep inky blacks and perfect black uniformity, so it's an amazing choice for gaming in dark environments. It's bright enough and has fantastic reflection handling if you want to use it in a bright room too, and it has wide viewing angles, making it a great choice for co-op gaming. It's not the brightest TV in HDR, but it has a very wide color gamut, and it supports HDR10 and Dolby Vision, although the PS5 doesn't support the latter.

    Sadly, the out-of-the-box accuracy on our unit is bad, so even though this can vary between units, you may need to get it calibrated to enjoy it to the fullest. Also, OLEDs have the risk of permanent burn-in, but we don't expect it to be an issue for most people, especially if you watch varied content, like if you game for a few hours, then watch shows. Overall, it's the best 4k TV for PS5 with an OLED panel.

  2. Best LED TV For PS5: Samsung QN90A QLED

    Sizes : 43" 50" 55" 65" 75" 85" 98"

    The Samsung QN90A QLED is the best TV for PlayStation 5 that we've tested if you want an LED panel. It's an excellent overall TV with many gaming features, and it's versatile enough for other uses. If you don't want to stream your favorite content directly from the PS5, the built-in Tizen OS is user-friendly and has a ton of apps available to download.

    LED TVs are good if you're worried about the risk of permanent burn-in from OLED panels, as LEDs appear to be immune to it, and they also get much brighter. The QN90A has Mini LED backlighting that provides greater control over its local dimming feature, and, combined with its VA panel, blacks look deep and inky with minimal blooming. In terms of gaming, it has HDMI 2.1 bandwidth on one input, it has a 120Hz panel, and the response time is very quick for the appearance of smooth motion. It also doesn't have any trouble playing 4k games up to 120 fps from the PS5, and it supports VRR once the PS5 gets it.

    Unfortunately, the local dimming feature performs worse in Game Mode because it seems to raise the black levels more, but this shouldn't be a problem unless you want the best picture quality while gaming. It also has Auto Low Latency Mode support to automatically switch the TV into Game Mode, but like with VRR, ALLM support will only come in the future with the PS5. Overall, it's the best gaming TV for PS5 in the LED category.

  3. Cheaper Alternative: Hisense U8G

    VA
    Resolution 4k
    Sizes : 55" 65"

    If you want to spend less money on a high-end TV, look into the Hisense U8G. Although it has worse viewing angles than the Samsung QN90A QLED because it doesn't have any viewing angle technology, it has a higher native contrast ratio. The full-array local dimming feature is also great, even though it doesn't feature Mini LED backlighting. It has all the great gaming features most people are looking for, like HDMI 2.1 bandwidth for high-frame-rate gaming, low input lag, and VRR support. It also has a quick response time, but there's a known issue with motion artifacts like red ghosting, particularly in Game Mode. If you don't notice that, motion looks smooth.

    If you're looking for the best TV for PS5, you can't go wrong with the Samsung, but if you prefer something cheaper, check out the Hisense.

  4. Best Large Screen TV For PS5: Sony X91J

    VA
    Resolution 4k
    Sizes : 85"

    If you want an excellent gaming experience on a large screen, then the Sony X91J is the best TV for PS5 use that we've tested. It's only available in an 85 inch size, and it has features that make it compatible with the console. It has great build quality, and the metal feet support the screen well, especially for such a large screen.

    It has two HDMI inputs with HDMI 2.1 bandwidth that allow you to play 4k @ 120 fps gaming from the PS5, but we experienced some resolution issues with some games like Destiny 2, where it would display a 3840x1080 resolution instead of 3840x2160. In terms of gaming performance, it has a quick response time for smooth motion, and while it has objectively low input lag, it's a bit higher than some other TVs like the Samsung QN90A QLED. It should receive VRR support in a future firmware update, possibly when the PS5 also gets it, and it already has a setting for VRR, but it doesn't reduce screen tearing.

    Sadly, there are issues with chroma 4:4:4 with 4k @ 120Hz signals as text looks blurry, so if you want chroma 4:4:4 for clear text, you'll need to drop the refresh rate down to 60Hz. It has a VA panel with a high native contrast ratio for deep blacks, and while the local dimming feature improves the contrast, it also causes some blooming around bright objects. If that doesn't bother you, it's still the best TV for PS5 with a large screen.

  5. Best Budget TV For PS5: Hisense U6G

    Resolution 4k
    Sizes : 50" 55" 65" 75"

    The best budget TV for PS5 we've tested is the Hisense U6G. It's a great overall TV that offers impressive performance for gaming, and even though it lacks some of the advanced gaming features on some of the higher-end models, it offers excellent value for its price. It's available in several sizes, and it's a fairly well-built TV that should look nice in most living room setups.

    Gamers should appreciate the quick response time for smooth motion, but like other VA panel TVs, it has a slow response time in dark transitions that leads to black smearing. Gaming feels responsive thanks to its low input lag, but it doesn't have extra features like HDMI 2.1 inputs, so you're limited to 4k @ 60 fps gaming, and it doesn't support VRR either. It's a great choice for dark room gaming thanks to the VA panel's high native contrast ratio, and the full-array local dimming feature helps improve the contrast and the picture quality in dark scenes with minimal blooming.

    Unfortunately, like most TVs with VA panels, it has narrow viewing angles, meaning the image looks washed out from the sides. Also, while its HDR brightness is okay and better than most budget-friendly TVs, some highlights don't pop the way they're supposed to. However, if you want to use it in a bright room, it gets bright enough to combat glare in SDR and has excellent reflection handling. All in all, it's the best TV for PS5 if you're on a budget.

Notable Mentions

  • Sony A90J OLED: The Sony A90J gets brighter than the LG C1 and delivers a better HDR experience, but it lacks any VRR support. See our review
  • Sony A80J OLED: The Sony A80J is an alternative to the LG C1 and delivers similar picture quality, but it doesn't have VRR support yet. However, that might come at the same time that the PS5 receives full VRR support, so it might be worth getting if you can find it cheaper than the C1. See our review
  • LG G1 OLED: The LG G1 is a higher-end version of the LG C1 and has a unique design, and the evo panel gets brighter, but it's not worth the price increase. See our review
  • TCL 6 Series/R646 2021 QLED: The TCL 6 Series/R646 2021 is comparable to the Hisense U8G in price and performance. However, it has a worse local dimming feature, so it's worth getting the Hisense instead. See our review
  • Samsung QN85A QLED: The Samsung QN85A is a lower-end version of the Samsung QN90A with an IPS-like panel, so it has better viewing angles but worse dark room performance. See our review
  • LG A1 OLED: The LG A1 OLED is a great TV with impressive picture quality, but it doesn't support any of the advanced gaming features found on the LG C1 OLED. See our review
  • TCL 5 Series/S546 2021 QLED: The TCL 5 Series/S546 2021 is another budget-friendly TV similar to the Hisense U6G and has VRR support. Our unit has terrible out-of-the-box accuracy, and there are upscaling issues, so it's worth getting the Hisense instead. See our review
  • Sony X90J: The Sony X90J is a great gaming TV, but the Samsung QN90A is a more versatile choice because it supports VRR out-of-the-box and has Mini LED backlighting. See our review
  • LG QNED90: The LG QNED90 is a high-end TV with Mini LED backlighting, meaning it gets bright, but its IPS panel has a worse contrast than the Samsung QN90A. See our review
  • Sony X85J: The Sony X85J is good overall and is available in an 85 inch size like the Sony X91J, but it lacks a local dimming feature. See our review
  • Hisense U7G: The Hisense U7G has more gaming features than the Hisense U6G, like HDMI 2.1 inputs and VRR support, but it's more costly, and if you're going to spend more, get the Hisense U8G. See our review
  • Vizio M7 Series Quantum 2021: The Vizio M7 Series Quantum 2021 is a great budget gaming TV with VRR support, but it doesn't get as bright as the Hisense U6G. See our review
  • Hisense U9DG: The Hisense U9DG is a fantastic large TV available in a 75 inch size with stunning picture quality, but it has worse gaming performance than other TVs in this recommendation. See our review
