What are the best gaming TVs for PS5 and Xbox Series X in 2024 ?

The Sony and Microsoft consoles have a lot of visual features to which only certain television models can claim.

Before you make the list of the best TVs to take advantage of the capabilities of the PS5 and Xbox Series X, we will explain to you here what these different features are as well as their benefits, and the importance of choosing a TV that meets these criteria.

Let's start at the beginning with the HDMI 2.1, the latest standard for the famous port allowing you to connect consoles to the television. HDMI 2.1 provides significantly higher bandwidth compared to HDMI 2.0, allowing support for higher resolutions and refresh rates.

This means that it can transmit video signals in 4K resolution at refresh rates up to 120 Hz and even in 8K resolution at 60 Hz. HDMI 2.1 is therefore the basis of what is necessary to get the most out of the PS5 and Xbox Series ~Don't worry, most TVs now have at least one HDMI 2.1 port as that's become the new standard these days.

Each TV now has a “Game mode” or “Game mode” in its image settings. This game mode generally allows you to reduce input lag (the speed at which your action is visible on the screen after pressing a button on your controller) by reducing the various visual features of the TV.

It is therefore imperative to choose a TV where the input lag is low with a low response time. Most of the time, OLED TVs have an extremely fast response time, which prevents late streaking effects.

Perfectly linked to Game Mode, ALLM (for Auto Low Latency Mode) allows the PS5 and Xbox Series 60~strong>automatically switch to Game Mode, without having to do so using the remote control. It’s still more practical, isn’t it??

To explain things simply, HDR allows you to obtain higher contrast between the darkest areas and the brightest in an image. This means that details in shadows and highlights are better preserved, resulting in a richer image.

HDR displays higher peak brightness than standard displays, which allows you to obtain brighter and more vibrant images. The last point concerns the wider and more precise color gamut, offering richer and more nuanced hues.

After the major interests of HDR comes next the variable refresh rate or “variable refresh rate” in the language of Shakespeare. This allows you to synchronize the refresh rate of the screen with that of the source console.

In game, this results in a smoother image, knowing that it will no longer be subject to image tearing (or screen tearing) as shown in the video here.

You will see that the TVs here will be rather similar to the best OLED TVs of 2024. Indeed, OLED and QD OLED are technologies that combine absolutely everything you could ask for in a TV for gaming, but have a major flaw in certain types of use.

If manufacturers do everything to avoid this phenomenon, the fact remains that burn-in (or afterimage phenomenon ) is a reality to which we must be very careful. By systematically playing the same games, the screen may become markedof an image always appearing in the same place on it. Thus, games where the HUD is omnipresent are particularly dangerous for the display of OLED screens.

We think, for example, of a hardcore gamer who plays for very long sessions. to FIFA type games with relatively still images, or even Rocket League and its HUD. This could ultimately damage the OLED panels, and this is something to take into account if you are the type to spend hours on a single game.

Without further ado, here is our selection of the best TV models to exploit the full potential of the PS5 and Xbox Series X:

The best gaming experience you can have with a TV is Samsung which provides it with its S90C using QD OLED technology. It thus offers magnificent colors, extremely low input lag and an almost instantaneous response time.

So there will be no problem playing any type of fast-paced game in 4K with a refresh rate of 120Hz. HDMI 2.1, ALLM, VRR, HDR, it is of course compatible with all the features we mentioned above. Moreover, it will also be ideal for gamers wishing to connect their PC to it, given that its refresh rate can go up to 144 Hz.

If there is one model that serves as a benchmark in the gaming world, it is the LG C3 OLED. Perfect for gaming use, it is also an excellent multimedia TV that excels in all areas. If this one is a little lower in our ranking, it's because it uses an OLED panel and not QD OLED.

The difference is therefore in the brightness of this one which is slightly lower than that of the Samsung S90C. Nevertheless, the C3 is a proposition of choice for players, it being available in numerous sizes, between 42, 48, 55, 65, 77 and 83 inches& nbsp;!

The 42-inch version makes it a real must-have for players wishing to use it on console, but also as PC screen at a lower price compared to what is generally found in high-end monitors with equivalent characteristics.

The A95L using QD OLED technology has been certified by Sony as perfect for use with the PS5. This makes it possible in particular to adjust the HDR according to the TV model which will be automatically recognized, without having to manually carry out the configuration.

If it’s a of the best OLED TVs that exist, we will regret c

despite its much higher price than that of the Samsung S90C, and a slightly greater input lag. It still remains a must for players who would like to be 100% equipped with Sony devices.

As we mentioned above, if you are the type to chain sessions of several hours on a single game, OLED TVs and the image risk afterglow that comes with them may not be for you.

Thus, this TV uses Mini LED technologyis of a brightness which will also allow you to play without too many problems in a brightly lit room. Having all the features you need to play in the best conditions, the image will not overall be as impressive as with an OLED TV.

We'll see elsewhere a blooming effect (glow) in dark scenes, but nothing really alarming here. It remains the best way to have a good gaming experience while having peace of mind regarding tile marking, impossible here.
