Best TV for PlayStation 5 overall : LG 65-inch CX 4K UHD SMART CINEMA OLED TV

Pros

  • OLED 4K tech delivers impressive contrast, detail, color and clarity

  • Isolated concerns about the base not being sure-footed
Price (RRP): $4,495

Why we chose it

When it comes to identifying the best performing all-rounder, LG CX comes highly recommended with a 4.7 /5 star rating (after 1.2K Amazon reviews). We've gone with a 4K set as opposed to an 8K because we believe that the fluidity and reaction time enhancing properties of a 120 frames per second capable TV is to be prized over higher resolution.

Speaking of, LG has adopted both G-Sync and FreeSync technology (the latter arriving in a firmware update soon) which means that most any games machine you hook up will enjoy a much smoother on-screen experience. That tech and the fact that it's an absolutely gorgeous OLED panel that delivers intense colours and perfect blacks, makes the LG CX an apex purchase.

  • Decent in-built speakers with sound quality better than most

Cons

  • Some reviews felt the remote is poorly designed
  • Some reviewers feel the screen is overly prone to glare/reflections

Why we chose it

To reach the upper echelon of what the PS5 can do in terms of next-gen frame-rates and resolution, you'll need a HDMI 2.1 equipped TV like the Samsung 65-inch Class QLED Q80T Series. It comes highly recommended with a 4.6 /5 star rating (after 576 Amazon reviews).

Available in 55, 75 and the colossal 85-inch variants, the Q80T also provides direct full array 12x tech that provides impressive contrast between your blacks and whites. Better yet, the panel has been designed with anti-glare to suit any large party viewings you might be having, plus an AI that intelligently upscales less-than-4K content to look much crisper.


Best TV for PlayStation 5 under $1000 : Sony 49-inch X7000G 4K Smart TV (2019)

  • Remarkable picture quality for the price

Why we chose it

If the considerable outlay for a PS5 has left you needing to buy a budget TV, the Sony 49-inch X7000G 4K Smart TV should suit your needs with its 4.3 /5 star rating (after 20 Amazon reviews). The latest and greatest games will still look sharp thanks to the 4K X-Reality PRO tech that real-time upscales your content to true 4K quality.

Sound-wise you'll be enjoying the faux-surround effects of ClearAudio+ tech that allows the viewer to experience music, dialogue and gunfire with greater clarity and separation. Last but not least, in terms of High Dynamic Range capability, your PS5 can take full advantage of the provided HDR10 and HLG.

Why we chose it

If you're not interested in shooting for the expensive heights of 8K gaming, this Samsung 50-inch TU-8000 Series is a more than capable television with a 4.7 /5 star rating (after 11K Amazon reviews). Basically, this is an easy to set up affair that delivers superb colour and picture quality (mostly thanks to Samsung's 4K Crystal Processor tech which delivers naturally crisp and vivid visuals).

Other benefits include voice-control via in-built Alexa (or Bixby if you prefer) and HDR capabilities for deeper shades of colour. Finally, this is a low-latency 60hz panel that's perfect for gaming. If you're lucky enough to catch the larger 55-inch version on sale, you can bump that output up to 120hz for a similar price.

If you're chasing the absolute best visual experience possible, the Samsung 65" 8K QLED TV is the pinnacle of picture quality with a 4.3 /5 star rating (after 43 Amazon reviews). Aside from being 16 times the resolution of HDTV, this 8K offering delivers direct full array 24x technology (think: incredibly deep blacks and luminous whites enhanced by concentrated zones of high-contrast LED backlights).

Other features include quantum-processed, AI upscaling that will convert all of your sub-8K content into something much more watchable. You're also getting handy in-built Alexa implementation and an immersive Objective Tracking Sound technology that will root you deeper into your virtual worlds.


Best Sony TV for PlayStation 5 : Sony X9000H 55-inch 4K Full Array LED Android TV 2020

Pros

  • Easy to control using your voice and Google Assistant
  • 4K X-Reality PRO tech allows you to upscale HD sources to near-4K

Cons

Why we chose it

If you're a believer of the old AV axiom that is "Sony tech + Sony tech = best results," you'd best gravitate towards Sony's X9000H, a TV with a 4.5 /5 star rating (after 1K+ Amazon reviews). Note: we've gone with a sensibly sized 55 inch model here, though this unit does also come in 65, 75 and 85 inch variants.

Being a 4K Full Array LED with a respectably low input lag of 7ms, the X9000H will let you have the mind-blowing experience of playing video games at 4K / 120FPS. Better yet, it comes with two HDMI 2.1 ports, so if you're lucky enough to own a PlayStation 5 and an Xbox Series X you'll not need to hotswap them all the time.
