The best TV for PS5: our top picks
LG's 2021 C1 is our top pick of the best TVs for PS5. Its 4K OLED screen offers a fantastic contrast ratio with deep blacks and bright colours, and you get four HDMI 2.1 ports, which is great if you have an Xbox Series X console as well. With a more reasonable price tag than some of its peers, the C1 also offers fantastic value for money.
Not only is this one of the best TVs for the PS5, but it's also one of the best TVs all round. It comes with a Game Optimiser menu, which makes it even easier to get the best image out of this TV for gaming on the PS5. You can adjust brightness, contrast and VRR (variable refresh rate) on the fly, and it supports up to 4K/120fps for brilliant gameplay.
If you're on a slightly tighter budget, Samsung's AU8000 4K smart TV is your best option. The specs aren't as impressive as the company's more high-end offerings, but it'll still boost your gaming experience with the crystal clear visuals and striking 4K detail we've come to expect from Samsung TVs. What's more, Samsung's Adaptive Sound technology will help to immerse you even further.
The AU8000's sleek design also makes it a stylish addition to your gaming setup and there are three HDMI 2.0 ports for your consoles or devices. Auto Low Latency Mode is a handy feature that automatically adjusts the TV when it detects your game console, minimising lag and optimising picture settings for a boss level gaming experience.
If you want a Sony TV to pair with your Sony PS5, the Sony X90J 4K TV is the ideal option. This is a great mid-range option in terms of price, and it's been built specifically as a gaming TV to compliment the brand's latest console. As a result, it has two HDMI 2.1 ports (and two HDMI 2.0 ports), VRR (variable refresh rate) and ALLM (auto low latency mode) for sub-10ms lag. These features can all make a big difference to your PS5 gaming experience.
This TV offers stunning image quality, which really shows off the PS5's graphics possibilities. It offers 4K resolution, and while the price is a bit high, the Sony X90J shows that the company has pulled out all the stops to design a TV that really allows the PS5 to shine.
LG is without doubt one of the best brands to look at when it comes to choosing the best TV for PS5. The LG OLEDCX is number one on our list, and one of the best TVs available for any use, but if you're really looking to splurge LG also has the G1.
This boasts an excellent game optimizer mode that lets you swap between preset modes for first-person shooter, RGPS and RTS titles. Latency is super low and you have four HDMI 2.1 ports. The OLED EVO panel is even brighter than the LG C1 and offers incredible brightness and naturally sharp images. Motion handling for both gaming and movies is the best around, and the new Web OS platform is super smooth too and much better at browsing multiple streaming services.
The downside is that this TV can be hard to find due to low stock at many retailers. Also, and on top of the already high price tag, you'll need to buy feet or a pedestal stand if you're not planning on wall-mounting the device.
If you've not got a lot to spend, this TV from Hisense is a solid budget TV for the PS5. It's an excellent entry-level 4K HDR screen with a slim bezel, spaced-out feet and and three HDMIs on the rear. There’s no 4K 120Hz support, but then this is a budget option. Each of the ports supports ALLM (Auto Low Latency Mode) and VRR (Variable Refresh Rate), plus eARC.
For this price, overall picture performance is very good, with great fine detail and reasonable dynamics. Dolby Vision helps a lot and motion handling is good too. The US version has Android TV with Chromecast built-in, while the UK comes with Hisense’s own Vidaa smart platform plus Freeview Play.
The Samsung Q80A is the successor to the Q80T and continues to uphold its reputation as a great gaming TV. Its 4K QLED display delivers pretty unbeatable detail, colour and contrast that will really do justice to your PS5's advanced visuals. There's also Object Tracking Sound technology which is powered by six speakers and provides truly dynamic audio.
Offering premium specs at such a reasonable price makes the Samsung Q80A a more than worthy addition to your gaming setup. If you go bigger than the 50-inch model you'll also get an ultra-high 120Hz refresh rate and low input lag that'll really level up the latest games.
If you want the absolute best visual quality for your PS5, then you'll probably want an OLED TV, and the Panasonic JZ2000 is a great option if you don't want to stretch to the LG C1 OLED at number one in our list. This custom OLED panel offers some of the finest image quality around, especially when it comes to dark scenes and vibrant colours. Best of all, thanks to auto picture modes, it's incredibly easy to set this TV up to get the very best results.
It's a great choice for the PS5 as it comes with HDMI 2.1, VRR (variable refresh rate), ALLM (auto low latency mode) and a reduced input lag of just 14.4ms. It's also got some brilliant speakers built in that will fill any living room with rich and detailed sounds. It's still expensive, but if your budget can stretch to it, you'll get the fine TV for your PS5.
The Philips OLED 806 is a top-notch gaming TV. It offers extensive specs and exceptional picture quality for a relatively reasonable price. There are two HDMI 2.1 inputs and a four-sided Ambilight that increases the immersion and lends PS5 games a cinematic edge. An understated design means it'll slot easily into your existing gaming setup too.
Setting this TV up could be a bit easier, but if you don't mind fiddling around with some of the settings you'll have yourself one incredible gaming TV for next-gen consoles at a very good price.
