TVs for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X
If you have a PlayStation 5 or the Xbox Series X, then deciding on the right TV requires a bit careful consideration to get the most out of your new console.
For an detailed explanation of what to look for, read our guide on the best TVs for the PlayStation 5 and the Xbox Series X. In short, look for a TV that has HDMI 2.1 and the associated features that those ports can accommodate. To be clear, not every TV with an HDMI 2.1 port is capable of taking advantage of those features, but our recommendations will work with your new console.
The LG CX has four HDMI 2.1 ports and supports 4K/120 Hz input. It even has G-Sync in case you want to hook it up to a desktop PC or laptop with a compatible Nvidia card. The LG CX is an OLED panel, which means it has true blacks, but also that it won’t get as bright as LEDs. Keep this in mind if you’re placing it in a very bright room.
The Samsung Q90T has four HDMI ports, but only one of them is HDMI 2.1. The LCD panel on the Q90T allows it to get much brighter than an OLED panel, and it has lower input lag.
The Sony X900H is a great midrange option for those looking to spend under $1,000. It has two HDMI 2.1 inputs that accept 4K/120 Hz content, but it currently doesn’t support variable refresh rate (VRR), a feature of Xbox Series X that keeps frame rates smooth, even when dipping below a game’s 60 fps or 120 fps target. Sony says it is working on a firmware update that will add that in the future.
