TVS: It is noted that the PlayStation 5 and Xbox series X are two of the hottest items to get this holiday season if you actually manage to find them.
For those who are actually lucky enough to snag one of these next-gen consoles, there’s a hidden and a compatible, high-end TV.
Truth is, both gaming consoles support a variety of new space-age features that most TVs from more than a couple of years ago just won’t be able to handle.
All these include Ultra high definition resolutions like 4K and 8K, blazing-fast 120Jz refresh rates via HDMI 2.1, and high dynamic range or HDR for enhanced image quality.
In this article, you will be getting it back to back the 5 great TVs.
1_AA_LG NANO CELL 90 SERIES
If you were actually hoping to spend less than $1,000 or so for the full suite of features, then; you are out of luck.
This is not the end of the world, though if you give it a couple of years and these displays will be cheaper. If you have adopters who simply can’t wait, however; the LG NanoCell 90 series is a decent place to start.
As long as the basics go, the Nanocell90 has just about everything you’d want: Native 4K resolution, native 129Hz refresh rates, HDMI 2.1 support, and multiple HDR specs like HDR20 and Dolby vision.
Anything gaming, the NanoCell 90 TVs come packed with goodies like variable refresh rate (or VRR) and auto_low latency mode.
VRR is very big, as it can prevent visual glitches like screen tearing, which is the name for those ugly horizontal seams in the image you might notice while playing high frame rate games.
These things don’t come cheap. LG’s smallest TV option is 55 inches, which starts at $1,049.99. It’s actually marked down to $949.99 on LG’s websites at the time of writing, so hopefully, you can snag one for a three-digit sum.
There’s a piece of good news here, there is at least one on this list that only costs a little more than the $500 PS5 and Xbox series X.
When it reaches TCL, It is always a good bet when it also comes to Sharp display for less money than the other big-name brands.
Whether or not, you have to accept some compromise along the way, but in general, these are good TVs for low prices.
If you start at $699.99 for a 55_inch set, the 6_ series also comes with most of what you want. It emphasizes on most 4K, HDR, and 120Hz with VRR are all present and accounted for here.
To reduce controller latency while gaming, and if it’s anything like the game mode on TCL 4_Series at home, it will help s bunch.
There’s really only one problem here: No HDMI 2.1 port. It’s probably the newest and rarest of all the features we’re looking for, so it’s not reasonable to expect it for a TV this “cheap.” The main drawback of this is you won’t be able to run games at 4K and 120FPS at the same time.
That might be a problem down the road, but the good news is the few games that support 120FPS right now (like Call of Duty) usually sacrifice resolution to get there. If a game runs at 4K/60FPS, the TCL 6-Series will work just fine with that.
If you go back to the most expensive TVs that come equipped with the critical HDMI 2.1 port, the Samsung Q70T is the most affordable in Samsung’s portfolio.
This actually means affordable in relative terms only, as the baseline 55_inch model start
If you go back to the realm of slightly more expensive TVs that come equipped with the critical HDMI 2.1 port, the Samsung Q70T is the most affordable in relative terms only, as the baseline 55_ inch model starts at $999.99.
That said, at the time of writing, Samsung is offering $200 off on its website. If you can manage to grab the Q70T for $800, that’s a pretty solid deal, at least based on the spec sheet.
VIZIO P_SERIES QUANTUM OR OLED.
When you look at Vizio’s TV lineup, the least expensive models that fits our needs are the 65_ inch P_series Quantum and the 55 inches 2020 OLED model.
There are advantages and disadvantages to each of them, especially considering each consumer’s individual needs
Vizio P-Series Quantum or OLED
Whichever way you want to go, Vizio’s cheapest option
Either way, you go, Vizio’s cheapest options for next-gen gaming are costly but should last you several years.
No much thing to say about the Sony X900H that hasn’t been relayed earlier on the TV’s list. It starts at 55 inches for $999.99, putting it roughly in line with others in terms of size and price. The X900H also comes packed with a native 4K display format like HDR10 and Dolby vision and HDMI 2.1 for the sweet, sweet 4K/120FPS goodness.
