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.

Very expensive, and you'll need to pay extra for feet or a stand if you don't want to wall mount it.

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.

Limited HDR brightest

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.
