The 5 Best TVs For The Xbox Series X - Fall 2022 Reviews

Updated
Best Xbox Series X TVs

If you have an Xbox Series X or are planning on getting one, you might need a new TV so you can make use of the Series X's full potential. Preferably, you want to look for something with a 120Hz panel and HDMI 2.1 bandwidth, as the Series X can output up to 4k at 120 fps for smoother and more responsive gameplay. TVs with good motion handling and low input lag offer a responsive gaming experience. While this recommendation is focused on the Xbox Series X because we tested the TVs with it, the results are the same for the Xbox Series S.

We've bought and tested more than 365 TVs, and below are our recommendations for the best 4k TV for Xbox Series X. For more options, check out our recommendations for the best 4k gaming TVs, the best 4k HDR TVs, and the best TVs.


  1. Best TV For Xbox Series X

    The LG C2 OLED is the best TV for the Xbox Series X that we've tested. It's an excellent TV that delivers fantastic gaming performance. It has an incredible array of features to improve your gaming experience, including HDMI 2.1 bandwidth on all four HDMI ports, letting you play 4k games up to 120fps. It also supports 4k @ 120fps Dolby Vision gaming, which is great if you want to enjoy the latest HDR games. It also has low input lag and a nearly instantaneous response time, resulting in crystal clear motion with no noticeable blur behind fast-moving objects.

    It delivers stunning picture quality thanks to its OLED panel. It has a near-infinite contrast ratio, resulting in deep inky blacks in a dark room, with perfect uniformity and no distracting blooming around bright objects. It has an amazing wide color gamut, so HDR content looks vivid and lifelike, and it's great for co-op gaming thanks to its wide viewing angle, ensuring everyone sees the same thing, even if you have a wide seating arrangement.

  2. Best Xbox Series X TV For A Bright Room

    The best TV for Xbox Series X gamers in a bright room is the Samsung QN90B QLED. It's an excellent overall TV with stunning picture quality for most content. It has features to please even the most competitive of gamers, and it's available in a wide range of sizes, but some of the smaller variants don't have the same gaming features. It's incredibly bright, ensuring it can overcome glare even in a bright room. It doesn't look as good as the LG C2 OLED in a dark room, though, as there's noticeable blooming around bright objects in a dark room, and blacks aren't as black.

    You won't have any issues connecting your Xbox Series X to this monitor as it has HDMI 2.1 bandwidth on one input, allowing you to play 4k games up to 120 fps, including in HDR. Gaming feels responsive thanks to its low input lag, and it has native FreeSync variable refresh rate (VRR) support to reduce screen tearing. Motion looks smooth, thanks to its excellent response time.

  3. Best Mid-Range TV For Xbox Series X

    The Hisense U8H is the best mid-range TV for Xbox Series S|X gaming that we've tested. It's an amazing gaming TV with superb low input lag and a quick response time, delivering a smooth, responsive gaming experience so you can perform at your best. It has a great selection of gaming features, including HDMI 2.1 bandwidth on two ports, so you can take full advantage of your Xbox and another device that supports 4k @ 120Hz gaming, like the PS5.

    Stepping down to a mid-range TV brings a few drawbacks, though. This TV has worse processing than the LG C2 OLED, so there's some banding and posterization, but it's not present in all games, and you might not even notice it. It delivers impressive picture quality, though, much better than the budget TCL 5 Series/S546 2021 QLED. It has impressive peak brightness, and HDR games look amazing, thanks to its fantastic contrast ratio, impressive local dimming, and incredibly high peak brightness, so your games look vivid and lifelike.

  4. Best Budget TV For Xbox Series X

    The best gaming TV for Xbox Series X gaming in the budget category is the TCL 5 Series/S546 2021 QLED. It's a great gaming TV with a few extra gaming features. It has variable refresh rate (VRR) support to reduce screen tearing, but unlike higher-end TVs like the Hisense U8H or the LG C2 OLED, you're limited to a 60Hz panel. It doesn't support HDMI 2.0 bandwidth, so games are limited to 60fps. Despite this limitation, it still delivers a smooth and responsive gaming experience thanks to its low input lag and quick response time.

    In terms of picture quality, it displays deep blacks thanks to its high native contrast ratio, and while the local dimming feature helps improve contrast, it doesn't do much to improve the overall picture quality in some dark scenes. If you want better overall picture quality, the Hisense U6G is a great choice, but unlike the TCL, it doesn't support VRR, so the overall gaming experience is slightly worse, and you'll see more tearing in some games.

  5. Best Cheap TV For Xbox Series X

    The best cheap TV for Xbox Series X gamers is the Insignia F50 QLED. This cheap TV lacks all of the advanced gaming features found on more expensive models, like variable refresh rate support or HDMI 2.1 bandwidth, so it can't take full advantage of the Xbox Series X. It delivers a decent gaming experience, with a very good response time and incredibly low input lag, ensuring a smooth, responsive gaming experience. Even though it lacks a bit in motion processing and gaming features, the high 4k resolution delivers sharp images, and it looks great with graphically intense games.

    Speaking of picture quality, it looks surprisingly good for a cheap TV. It has excellent contrast, decent peak brightness, and great accuracy out of the box. 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 between gaming sessions, they don't look as good as they could with a more powerful TV.

Notable Mentions

  • Sony A80J OLED: The Sony A80J OLED is an impressive TV that delivers similar picture quality to the LG C2 OLED. It has a few unique Sony-specific features that make it the best choice for PS5 gamers, but the Xbox Series X doesn't support those features, so the LG is a better buy for Xbox gamers.

All Reviews

Our recommendations above are what we think are currently the best televisions for the Xbox Series X. We factor in the price (a cheaper TV wins over a pricier one if the difference isn't worth it), feedback from our visitors, and availability (no TVs that are difficult to find or almost out of stock everywhere).

If you would like to do the work of choosing yourself, here is the list of all our TV reviews. Be careful not to get too caught up in the details. While no TV is perfect, most TVs are great enough to please almost everyone, and the differences are often not noticeable unless you really look for them.
