You want one of the best TVs for the Sony PS5? We can help! We've weighed up all the necessary features and specs to bring you this carefully curated list of the best TVs for PlayStation 5 and save you having to do all the researching yourself.
Price and size are of course going to be important considerations, and that's why we've selected a variety of TVs across all the price points – and if the perfect budget TV for you isn't here, we suggest checking out our guide to the best TVs under £1000.
We'd then recommend making sure you're thinking about the tech features you want. For the PS5, that means a 4K resolution, the latest HDMI 2.1 standard, and features such as Variable Refresh Rate (VRR) and Auto Low-Latency Mode (ALLM).
There are many great options when it comes to the best gaming TV, but this list is specifically for those that work well with PS5 (if you use Microsoft's console, check out the best Xbox Series X TVs). From Sony to Samsung to LG, here are our top PS5 picks:
It's part of my job here at T3 to test the best TVs, so I'm often hosting a brand new set in my living room for review to see if it makes cut for this guide – and that means digging deep down into specifications and panel performance.
Part of that process is also assessing how much you'll have to pay, so I'm always looking for great deals on TVs too. I know what makes for good value when it comes to a new set, so there's something here to cover every different price point.
T3's Top 3
Best for most people
Best TV for most PS5 gamers
The Samsung QN95C uses mini-LED technology, but that tech is so good you could easily mistake it for an OLED model – just without the premium price tag attached. It excels in terms of the pictures it can deliver from your PlayStation 5, and you've got a host of gaming-centric features and specs here, including a low input lag and HDMI 2.1.
Best cheaper option
Best cheaper PS5 TV
We know a good value television set when we see it, and that's what we've got with the Sony X90K (known as the Sony X94K at some retailers). The lower price means there are some trade-offs in terms of performance and features, but you also get a high contrast, vibrant picture, as well as an engrossing PS5 experience (there's even a dedicated game mode).
Best premium panel
Best premium TV for PS5
The LG G3 OLED has been attracting heaps of praise from all quarters, and we're going to add to it here: it's a stunning OLED television set that will show off any kind of content (including PS5 games) brilliantly. It's one of the brightest OLEDs we've seen yet, with full support for pictures at 4K and 120Hz across all four HDMI 2.1 ports.

Best for most people
There's a lot to like about the Samsung QN95C, especially if you're connecting it up to a PlayStation 5: it has everything from 4K 120Hz support to VRR capabilities, so whatever games you're firing up on your console, they'll look fantastic. That extends to watching movies and shows as well – it's a genuine all-rounder, and it's no wonder that this Samsung set is proving so popular.
The Mini LED technology provides 48 x 28 (1,344) local dimming zones for super-precise illumination, and the screen gets close to OLED levels when it comes to the deepness of the blacks and the level of contrast. Brightness and colour performance are great too, and it's actually rather tricky to find any faults with the QN95C. It could be the best PS5 television for you.
All the specs and details you need to know about are in our Samsung QN95C review, a full look at this model.
Best cheaper option
If the A90K ticks all of your boxes but you don’t feel like selling an internal organ to pay for it, the more affordable Sony X90K (or X94K as you'll typically find in the UK, which is the very same) will absolutely do you right. There’s no OLED panel but the X90 still has Sony’s Auto HDR Tone Mapping for excellent detail even in the brightest and darkest areas of the screen.
The X90K’s visuals happily pop colourfully thanks to the on-board processing, while 4K imagery is handled deftly, and two HDMI 2.1 ports are on hand for 4K gaming at 120fps – in our review, we were particularly impressed by just how smooth 4K at 120fps looked. The sound is a little lacklustre here but, there is eARC support for full Dolby Atmos passthrough to a compatible soundbar.
Learn more about this set through our Sony X94K review, which includes all the details you need to know.
The LG G3 OLED really excels in terms of the latest OLED display technology: it's a phenomenal TV that gives you one of the best possible viewing experiences around, assuming the sources you're connecting up to it are of a decent quality. It's rather expensive, but then you'd expect that for one of the best TVs around.
As far as PS5 compatibility goes, it ticks just about every box you can think of, including 4K, 120Hz, and ALLM. There's no doubt that your games are going to look superb on this screen, as does everything else – it's perhaps only the integrated sound that lets the set down, though the audio is far from terrible.
We'd direct you towards our comprehensive LG G3 OLED review for more on this outstanding OLED set.
Best smaller screen
The Sony A90K is officially labelled "perfect for PlayStation 5" by Sony itself: you get proprietary features like Auto HDR Tone Mapping and Auto Genre Picture Mode to get your games looking their best, as well as support for the 4K resolution and 120Hz refresh rate that the PS5 is capable on (with two of the four HDMI ports at least).
Important to note, however, is that this model only comes in 42- or 48-inch sizes, making it a premium smaller screen option. Despite its size, pictures look fantastic on this set, particularly when it comes to the aforementioned HDR processing. You get a ton of connectivity options here, too, so games and movies that look smooth and vibrant, while an integrated sound system can hold its own as well.
If you're not quite convinced, head on over to our full Sony A90K review to get the full rundown on this television.
If you like what Samsung has to offer in terms of its televisions then the Samsung S90C is well worth your attention: it's more affordable than the Samsung QN95C that tops our list here, and yet it doesn't skimp on key features. You get four HDMI 2.1 ports, with support for 4K 120Hz, VRR, and ALLM, so it's one of the best sets that you can hook up to your PS5.
It excels for watching videos of all kinds as well as playing games too, and there's solid upscaling for content sources that aren't a 4K resolution. It manages to hit a certain sweet spot in terms of price, functionality, and performance, and you can depend on great brightness levels and colour fidelity.

Our LG C3 OLED review will leave you in no doubt of how much we love this television: it's not a massive upgrade over the still-excellent LG C2 OLED, but it is an upgrade nevertheless. If you've got the budget to be able to afford it, we'd say this is the best OLED TV to hook up to your PlayStation 5 at the moment.
There are numerous reasons why that's the case, but the exquisite OLED picture is definitely one of the most important. We described it as offering "Hollywood-like pictures", though admittedly you might need some tinkering to get everything right, especially if you're switching between different input devices and video sources.
The four HDMI 2.1 ports – supporting 4K resolutions, 120Hz, VRR and ALLM – mean that you're well covered from a gaming perspective, and a PS5 perspective in particular. Overall, there's very little not to like here, and there are plenty of different display sizes to pick from, so you have a choice of dimensions and price points.
Best picture and sound combo
As our Panasonic MZ2000 review will tell you, this excellent set follows on from where the Panasonic LZ2000 television left off, combining a superbly rich OLED panel with built-in audio that's several levels above most of the competition.
The 7.1 channel sound system is seriously so good that you're not even going to think about fitting a soundbar – and that means top-tier audio for your PlayStation 5 games as well as for any movies and TV shows that you might want to load up.
There's much more that impresses here too, from the peak brightness of the OLED screen to the HDMI 2.1 support that gives the 4K/120Hz goodness that a lot of PS5 owners will be looking for (though it's only available on two of the four HDMI ports).
Best value QLED
Read through our TCL C645 review and you'll see this is an excellent all-rounder – if you're in the market for a PS5 TV that gives you fantastic value and doesn't let you down in any department, then this certainly has to be a strong contender.
HDMI 2.1 support is here on one of the three ports – so that's your 4K/120Hz pictures covered – and gamers will like the Auto Low-Latency Mode and AMD FreeSync support as well. You'll always get fast and fluid pictures with this.
Besides the very competitive price, what really stands out about the TCL C645 are the polished smart TV features. You're not going to be gaming all the time, we assume, and this is a set that has you well covered in other areas as well.
Best last-gen Samsung
The Samsung flagship QN95B has frankly astounding Mini LED picture quality but, of course, it comes at a cost. Image-wise, Samsung’s AI processor of 20 neural networks combine with local dimming zones and more focused light transmission to create unparalleled HDR picture quality.
As we said in our review, this set "is as big on gaming as it is on video". All four of its HDMI ports support 4K at 120Hz and variable refresh rate features, while the Game preset mode can get input lag down to just 10.4ms. A Game Dashboard is even on hand for speedy settings changes to get things just the way you want them. Whether you want to game or maximise your movie watching, the QN95B has you covered or, y’know, perfectly lit.
Dive into our full Samsung QN95B review to get the full rundown on what this television set has to offer your PS5.
Best last-gen LG
Even with the LG G3 OLED now launched, the LG G2 OLED remains a sublime OLED television, capable of producing stunning HDR images whether you've got it hooked up to a PlayStation 5 or any other high-quality input source. That's thanks to the underlying quality of the display technology on offer here.
LG now seems to have cracked how to deliver exceptional HDR imagery with bright and vibrant colours on an OLED, and the four HDMI 2.1 ports, 4K at 120fps support, and VRR and ALLM compatibility make it perfect for the PS5. Oh, and the input lag is 9.4ms so it’s never going to be the game’s fault when you miss a shot or misjudge that corner.
Get the full rundown via our LG G2 OLED review, which is as thorough as they come.
Key features explained
HDMI 2.1: This is the latest version of the connection tech. It looks just like older HDMI ports, but can handle 4K 120Hz, VRR and ALLM – which we'll explain in a moment. Here's our full HDMI 2.1 guide, if you want more info.
4K 120Hz: The PS5 is able to play certain games at 4K resolution at 120 frames per second, which makes things super-clear and responsive. In order to actually see this on your TV, though, your TV needs two things: it has to have a 4K screen capable of refreshing at 120Hz (120 times per second), and it has to have an HDMI 2.1 connector, because it's too much data for older versions of HDMI to handle. We have a more in-depth 4K 120Hz explainer here, if you want to dig in.
VRR (Variable Refresh Rate): This technology enables the PS5 to tell the TV when it should refresh and show a new frame, instead the refresh happening at set regular intervals. This means that games can vary their framerate slightly with their being any weird graphical glitches from the fact that they're out of sync with the TV – which means games can be more flexible with including fancier graphics, or can run at higher framerates than usual. If that seems confusing, here's our full VRR explained guide, including a video. The PS5 will support the HDMI 2.1 version of VRR only (it's coming soon in an update), but not FreeSync or G-Sync, which are the same concept implemented differently.
ALLM (Auto Low Latency Mode): This means the PS5 tells the TV to switch into a 'gaming' mode, where less image processing is applied, but it means every frame the PS5 creates is shown on the TV screen more quickly – making games more responsive. Again, it's an HDMI 2.1 feature, though TVs without HDMI often support it, or have their own version of it.
Auto HDR Tone Mapping: A feature unique to Sony Bravia XR TVs, and it means constant communication between your console and the TV to map the lightest and darkest parts of a game's HDR to the lightest and darkest that your TV can manage, so you get the best HDR range at any time. Basically, it makes games look better.
