The 7 Best TVs For PS5 - Winter 2024 Reviews

Updated
Best PS5 TVs

A few great options are available if you're looking for the best gaming TV for PS5. When evaluating how good a TV is for PS5 gaming, there are four main criteria to consider:

Gaming Features

The PS5 supports HDMI 2.1 bandwidth, which means higher resolutions and faster refresh rates than the PS4, all the way up to 4k @ 120Hz. A fast refresh rate, like 120Hz, doesn't only improve the fluidity of gameplay in games that do support it, but it also almost always improves the TV's input lag and perceived response time, so it's a big deal for competitive PS5 gamers or those who prioritize frame rate and fluidity over graphical fidelity. A high refresh rate also goes hand-in-hand with variable refresh rate support, or VRR, as it lets the TV dynamically adjust its refresh rate to match the game's frame rate, minimizing, if not eliminating, any screen tearing that can result from the game's frame rate not matching the TV's refresh rate. Luckily, Sony released firmware updates that added VRR and 1440p support to the console, making it fully compatible with TVs that support these features.

For more information on gaming features, look up our articles on VRR and supported resolutions of TVs.

Input Lag and Response Time

Another essential component of a good gaming TV for the PS5 console is its input lag and response time. Input lag is the time it takes for a frame sent by a source (like a gaming console) to be displayed on screen. A low input lag makes the entire experience more responsive, as your inputs on a controller or mouse are reflected quickly on the screen. The best TVs can have an input lag as low as five milliseconds. Response time is the time it takes for a pixel to change from one color to the next, typically measured from a fully black pixel to a fully white one or from one shade of gray (either dark or bright gray) to the opposite shade of gray. OLEDs are the uncontested best TVs regarding response time, as their pixel transitions are nearly instantaneous. But the best LED TVs for gaming also have very fast transitions. A slow response time is noticeable, as fast-moving objects on screen leave blurry trails behind them.

Contrast and Dark Details in Game Mode

An important factor in how games look on a TV is its ability to preserve its contrast in Game Mode when playing on the PS5. To cut down on processing and thus improve input lag, TVs disable many of their processing features in Game Mode. We look at whether the TV's local dimming feature is still fast and accurate in that mode, which includes seeing if the TV's dimming zone transitions are more noticeable than in other picture modes and if the TV's blooming performance differs from these other modes. The best gaming TVs don't show any apparent reduction in contrast in Game Mode.

Peak Brightness and Reflection Handling

Finally, we pay attention to how bright the TV gets. For dark room gaming, contrast is more important overall, but HDR peak brightness is also important as the PS5 supports HDR, and you want bright highlights to pop next to a TV's deep blacks. Of course, if you're gaming in a bright room, you want your TV's brightness to be high enough to compensate for any glare from direct or ambient lights. Reflection handling is also important here, as TVs with lower peak brightness, like many OLEDs, can compensate for it by having stellar reflection handling, allowing for bright room gaming. If you're planning on playing older PS4 and PS3 titles on your console, then a good SDR peak brightness is also crucial, although if you don't care about accuracy, you can force your console to output SDR games in HDR, which is useful for TVs who don't have a high SDR peak brightness, like OLEDs.

If you'd like to know more, we have in-depth articles about SDR peak brightness, HDR peak brightness, and reflection handling.

We've bought and tested more than 425 TVs, and below are our recommendations for the best gaming TV for PS5 that you can buy. Also, see our picks for the best gaming TVs, the best 4k TVs, and the best movie TVs. You can also vote on which ones you want us to buy and test. To learn more about the upcoming 2024 models, check out our 2024 TV lineup page.


  1. Best TV For PS5

    The best TV for PS5 that we've tested is the Samsung S90C OLED. It's a fantastic TV that delivers an incredible gaming experience. Fast-paced action games look outstanding thanks to the nearly instantaneous response time, so there's almost no noticeable blur or ghosting behind fast-moving objects. Its input lag is extremely low, which makes for extremely responsive gaming. It's bright and colorful in HDR and SDR, so your games look great, especially in a dark room. Due to its HDMI 2.1 bandwidth ports, the TV can take full advantage of everything the PS5 offers, including 4k @ 120Hz gaming in games that support it. And If you're also a PC gamer, the Samsung can reach 4k @ 144Hz on all its HDMI ports.

    If you'd like an OLED TV that is part of Sony's 'Perfect for PS5' lineup, which includes a few Sony-exclusive features designed for PS5 gamers, look up the more expensive Sony A95L OLED. It has Auto HDR Tone Mapping, which automatically optimizes the HDR settings for your TV, ensuring you get the best HDR experience possible without manually adjusting the settings. However, it has worse input lag than the Samsung model, so gaming isn't as responsive, and the TV is much more expensive. You could also opt for the higher-end Samsung S95C OLED, which is brighter than the S90C, but its price premium is not worth it for most people.

  2. Best Bright Room TV For PS5

    The Sony X93L/X93CL is the best TV for PlayStation 5 we've tested if you prefer to game in a bright room. It features a Mini LED backlight that allows it to get extremely bright, and, combined with its decent local dimming feature, HDR content stands out incredibly well. It looks amazing in a dark room, although not as much as the Samsung S90C OLED, as there's more noticeable blooming around bright objects, and blacks aren't as deep. However, it's still an excellent TV with a great selection of features, so there's something for everyone.

    It has a 120Hz panel with HDMI 2.1 bandwidth on two of its HDMI ports, meaning you can play 4k games up to 120 fps on the PS5. It has HDMI Forum VRR support, which works well with the console. Games feel quick and responsive thanks to the fast response time, extremely low input lag, and excellent motion handling. And as it's a Sony TV, it's part of Sony's 'Perfect for PS5' lineup, which includes a few Sony-exclusive features designed for PS5 gamers, like Auto HDR Tone Mapping, which automatically optimizes the HDR settings for your TV. The Sony X95L is a step up from this TV and is the best LED TV we've ever tested, but it's only available in an 85-inch size in North America. You can get the X95L in 65 and 75-inch sizes in other regions, but its price premium over the X93L isn't worth it for most people.

  3. Best Upper Mid-Range TV For PS5

    If you want an OLED that is not only a great gaming TV for the PS5 but can also be an excellent home theater TV, consider the upper mid-range LG C3 OLED. It's a premium TV that delivers stunning picture quality. Thanks to its near-infinite contrast ratio, there's no blooming around bright objects, and it has dark, inky blacks. It truly looks fantastic in dark rooms when gaming. That said, while it gets bright enough to fight glare even in moderately-lit rooms and has incredible reflection handling, it doesn't use quantum dot technology. This means that colors aren't as bright as on the Samsung S90C OLED. The LG partly makes up for it by being more versatile, as it has better image processing, Dolby Vision HDR support, and can passthrough advanced DTS audio formats. It also supports full 120Hz Dolby Vision, which is great to have even though Dolby Vision support is still rare on the PS5.

    Of course, it still delivers incredible gaming performance with a nearly instantaneous response time, resulting in crystal-clear motion with no distracting blur behind fast-moving objects. It's also packed with gaming features, including full HDMI 2.1 bandwidth support on all four inputs, meaning you can take full advantage of your PS5 while having a bunch of other HDMI 2.1 devices connected. If you love this TV but would like it to be a bit more vibrant, consider the more expensive LG G3 OLED. The G3 is one of the brightest OLEDs on the market and is certainly brighter than the C3, but the price difference isn't worth it for most people.

  4. Best Mid-Range TV For PS5

    The LG B3 OLED is the best 4k TV for PS5 in the mid-range category that we've tested. It's a truly splendid TV, with only a few drawbacks compared to the more expensive models. The TV has all the features of the more expensive LG C3 OLED, although the B3 is certainly dimmer. It still delivers outstanding picture quality, especially in a dark room, with its near-infinite contrast ratio delivering deep, inky blacks with no distracting blooming. Just make sure to dim the lights when gaming on this TV, as it's not bright enough in HDR to offer a truly immersive gaming experience in bright rooms.

    This TV is available in a more narrow range of sizes compared to the more expensive LG: 55, 65, and 77 inches. But it's still great for gaming, with its two HDMI 2.1 ports offering up to 4k @ 120Hz support, including Dolby Vision gaming @ 120Hz. If you have multiple HDMI 2.1 devices, you'll have to navigate around having only two HDMI 2.1 ports, but thankfully, HDMI 2.1 switches are now pretty cheap. It is compatible with every VRR technology, has a fantastic response time, and has an extremely low input lag in Game Mode. And like other OLEDs, its viewing angle is truly fantastic, making it a great TV for large gaming parties. Overall, this TV is a great entry point into the OLED market.

  5. Best Lower Mid-Range TV For PS5

    If you want the Sony X93L or LG B3 OLED but are tight on money, you can safely step down to the best lower mid-range TV for PS5 that we've tested, the Hisense U7K. It's dimmer than the Sony, with worse contrast, but it has a very similar feature set. Plus, it's still easily bright enough for a very good HDR experience, and its contrast is excellent overall, so it looks great when gaming in a dark room. It has fantastic reflection handling, so it handles very bright rooms well. It has a good local dimming solution to emphasize highlights and further improve the TV's contrast. It's also a very colorful TV, so it's pleasant to watch in any context.

    Unfortunately, its viewing angle is narrow, so it's best viewed directly in front. Thankfully, its response time is excellent, making it an enticing option for gamers hoping to save money on a great TV. It has superbly low input lag and offers an extremely responsive gaming experience. And just like the higher-end Sony X93L and LG B3, it has two HDMI 2.1 bandwidth ports, but here, each port is capable of up to 4k @ 144Hz, alongside full VRR and Auto Low Latency Mode (ALLM) support. Furthermore, it has full 120Hz Dolby Vision support, a great feature for a lower mid-range model. If you love this TV but would like it to be even brighter, consider the Hisense U8K, which is basically just a much brighter U7K.

  6. Best Budget TV For PS5

    If you're a price-conscious PS5 gamer, and the Hisense U7K is a bit too pricey for you, yet you still want a great experience, the best budget TV for PlayStation 5 that you can get is the Best Buy exclusive TCL Q5/Q550G QLED. It's a very good TV for gaming thanks to its low input lag and decent response time, resulting in a responsive gaming experience and clear motion, with very little blur behind fast-moving objects. Even though it has HDMI 2.0 bandwidth on all of its ports, alongside a 60Hz panel, it can output 1080p @ 120Hz and 1440p @ 120Hz with resolution halving on the 55-inch and 65-inch models, with a wide VRR range to match. It's hard to notice the drop in picture quality from resolution halving unless you really look for it, so it's a great feature, making it one of the cheapest TVs on the market with a 120Hz refresh rate. It also supports Dolby Vision at 60Hz, another great feature for a budget model.

    Still, it has worse picture quality than the more expensive models on this list, with worse contrast due to the lack of a local dimming feature. It gets bright overall and is quite colorful, but without local dimming, it can't truly emphasize bright highlights. However, it has a narrow viewing angle, so it's not the best choice for party games with a large group of friends, as anyone sitting to the side will see a faded image. Overall, it's an impressive TV for gaming thanks to its low input lag and decent response time. If you'd like a slightly brighter TV, look at the slightly more expensive TCL Q6/Q650G QLED. Still, they're very similar, so the Q5 is the better value overall.

  7. Best Cheap TV For PS5

    If you're looking for the best PS5 TV at the lowest price possible, consider the Roku Select Series. It's a decent TV that's a small step down from the TCL Q5/Q550G QLED, as it can't do 120Hz like that TV can. Its contrast is okay, especially for a TV at this price point, so it looks adequate in a dark room, even without local dimming. That's a good thing since the TV doesn't get bright enough in HDR for rooms with lots of lights, even with its decent reflection handling. It's bright enough for moderately lit rooms, though, especially when playing SDR titles since its SDR brightness is very good. A great feature of this TV is the sheer amount of models available, from a small 24-inch to a big 75. Remember that the 24 and 32-inch models are limited to a 720p resolution, and the 40-inch model is limited to 1080p. The bigger sizes are 4k TVs.

    The Roku is light on features; it doesn't have VRR, is limited to a 60Hz refresh rate, and doesn't support 1440p resolution. Still, its spectacular input lag and great response time make it a good TV for gamers. However, like many other LED TVs, there's a noticeable black smear in shadow details due to the TV's slower dark state transitions, but you won't have any issues with slower and brighter titles. If you're a Costco member, you'll instead want to get the slightly better and more colorful Hisense A65K.

Notable Mentions

  • TCL QM8/QM850G QLED: The TCL QM8/QM850G QLED is one of the brightest TVs on the market, but unfortunately, it has a lot of quirks, many of which impact the TV's gaming performance.

See our review
  • Samsung QN90C/QN90CD QLED: The Samsung QN90C/QN90CD QLED is a great alternative to the Sony X93L/X93CL, but the Sony is slightly better.

See our review
  • Roku Plus Series QLED: The Roku Plus Series QLED is a budget TV with the best image quality in its price range. Unfortunately, it's very light on features as it lacks VRR support and is limited to a 60Hz refresh rate at all resolutions, making the 55-inch and 65-inch models of the TCL Q5/Q550G QLED the better gaming TV overall. See our review
  • Sony A75L OLED: The Sony A75L OLED is an amazing mid-range OLED from Sony. It's a bit better than the LG B3 OLED and comes with a suite of PS5-specific features. Unfortunately, the Sony OLED is much more expensive than the B3, making the LG a better value. See our review
