3 Best Gaming TVs for PS5 and Xbox

Okay, since I started this website three years ago, I have never talked about TVs. This one’s been a long time coming. I thought now is the the good time and to do the justice. In this article we’ll be taking a look at some of the best 4K TVs on the market suitable for gaming.

For time being I have selected three TVs to review and I may add some more in the future. These TVs fit within any reasonable budget, and I hope most would be able to afford them.

Hisense U7H

Hisense has made a name for itself when it comes to brightness offering some of the best performance in this category for the least amount of money. The U7H continues in this tradition by blowing the competition out of the water with an eye searing 1000 nits of peak brightness.

For reference most TVs in this price range have historically only brought a lowly 600 nits to the table, which is barely enough to properly display HDR. On the other hand, 1000 nits not only can overpower direct glare from a big open window but has enough power for you to fully enjoy any HDR content.

Speaking of HDR, not even TVs that cost three times as much as the U7H will always offer support for a wide range of HDR formats. However, Hisense has you covered with Dolby Vision, HDR 10, HDR 10+, and hybrid log gamma.

So, no matter what streaming service you rely on, this TV can deliver the perfect HDR experience. U7H is controlled with Google TV, which means just about every streaming service you can think of will work on it.

While the television panel is not going to give you the perfect black levels that come with OLED technology, the full array local dimming combined with the peak brightness means that unless you’re trying to watch the U7H from an extreme angle the picture quality won’t look washed out.

The colors are also bright, vibrant, and popping out off the screen, thanks to its use of quantum dots. U7H has a refresh rate of 120Hz, which means that games look and play smooth when paired with the next-gen console.

The U7H can be connected to a PlayStation 5 or an Xbox series X and give maximum performance with two out of its four HDMI ports. The Hisense U7H also features AMD FreeSync premium, Auto low latency, variable refresh rate and Dolby Vision gaming.

In short the Hisense U7H ticks every single box you’ll be looking for in a TV that costs well under a thousand bucks.

LG C2

LG C2

LG C2 has some features that truly stand out and make it a compelling buy, especially for the price. While a 55 inch model can cost as much as two thousand dollars, and a 65 inch can come as high as 2500, you can almost always find it on a discount of about $600 to $700 cheaper.

The LG C2 doubles the HDMI 2.1 support to four and significantly improves the contrast with its capability of delivering truly black blacks. Now this is something only OLED TVs are capable of.

While it isn’t going to get that bright in moderately lit to dark rooms, you’ll be a lot more impressed with the image quality than what you get out of non-OLED panels. The colors of C2 are very accurate, which makes the C2 one of the only TVs on the market that can legitimately compete with a movie theater’s visual experience.

The C2 is driven by LG’s web OS smart TV interface. It certainly has a large variety of streaming options to choose from, but it is not quite as friendly or robust as Google TV or Roku.

The OLED technology has another trick up its sleeve for gamers, which is instantaneous pixel response. It means when you’re gaming, you won’t see any lag between the input and the action that takes place on screen. The gaming on the C2 will actually feel better and faster, while games will look more impressive as well.

The C2 also brings LG’s excellent game Optimizer menu which lets you fine-tune your gaming experience from the level of contrast and colors to full visualization of active frame rate and resolution. Think of it as a command center for gaming that’s always at your fingertips.

The LG C2 is going to appeal to a more discerning viewer and for them the difference in quality between this and our previous choice is worth the extra price.

Sony A95K

Sony A95K

The A95K comes with the latest technology which is QD OLED. It is very similar to an OLED, but supercharged. The concept was invented by Samsung but only Sony puts this new panel to best use in the A95K.

The A95K is one of the two OLED televisions that you can buy today, making it one of the most exclusive Technologies on the market. The price is as high as three thousand dollars for a 55 inch set and four thousand dollars for a 65 inch display.

Unfortunately, in exchange for this new panel Sony does cut some features. It only supports HDR 10 Dolby vision and hybrid log gamma, when it comes to HDR profiles. Also, it only has two HDMI 2.1 ports, which are capable of delivering 4K at 120 hertz.

However, Sony leans heavily on the picture quality as a reason for its high asking price. This TV deliver amazing picture quality. It has nearly perfect colors, and can display more colors than any other TV on the market.

While power efficiency doesn’t sound that important but QD OLED does result in one major improvement over standard OLED because of how the tech works. The pixels on an OLED panel can actually wear out over time and cause what most people call burn-in.

It is not a huge issue unless you’re displaying unchanging content consistently over the course of months. However, it can happen and gets worse when you increase brightness and push more power through those pixels.

On the other hand, QD OLED requires less power to achieve the same brightness, meaning the risk for burn-in is less of an issue.

Sony also has the best picture processing technology on the market, which means it can intelligently make any content look better regardless of how you’re streaming it. Speaking of streaming, everything you could want to watch can be yours thanks to its use of Google TV.

As far as gaming is concerned, it delivers instant pixel response, supports Auto low latency, variable refresh rate, and up to 120 hertz in 4k.

It is really hard to explain just how good ACR movies look on this particular TV because most of the people have never seen this number of colors displayed on a TV before.

Final Words

So, which TV is the best pick? Well it depends on what is important to you. The Hisense U7H brings all the important pieces to the table and does a fantastic job under great price. The LG C2 and Sony A95K both take steps up when it comes to visual quality and gaming performance.

For me, the U7H is best for everyday living room but both the C2 and the A95K are going to be better picks for use on a desktop or home theater.

What do you all think? Do you own any of these TVs? Do you prefer a model we didn’t even mention? Let us know in the comment section down below.
