The cheap 4K TV deals are coming in very steadily this winter, and as part of the after Christmas sales, there's a whole bunch of the best gaming TVs on offer in the form of LG's OLED range and Samsung's QLED panels. Nice.
Either one is arguably the best TV for PS5 and Xbox Series X without question. In a sea of acronyms, however, this can be hard to digest. As a brief overview, 'QLED' is Samsung's premier trademark LED technology which is backlit to provide a clearer and brighter picture than its competitors, thus offering a bright and more vivid experience that can leave others in the shade. On the other hand, OLED TVs from LG offer excellence at the other end of the scale in terms of grays, blacks, and darker shades or tones.
Many of the options below also offer a 120Hz refresh rate, support for variable refresh rates, Nvidia G-Sync compatibility (on LG models), and Dolby Vision, HDR10, and HLG. Plus, the concrete fact of having HDMI 2.1 ports makes them very future proof for console gaming - and even PC gaming.
Anyway, there are a vast array of TVs in these premium brackets discounted this Holiday Season, and to save you the hassle of rounding them all up we've collected a large handful or two here. If you've been lucky enough to buy a PS5 or buy an Xbox Series X this winter, then these are the televisions you're looking for to complete your next-gent (or is it current-gen, now?) experience. Enjoy!
