The best TVs for the Playstation 5 2020/07

When talking about consoles, Sony is probably the most famous manufacturer that everyone has probably heard of. Since 1994 the Playstation series is now sold and enjoys great popularity. From then on, the console has been technically and optically optimized considerably, which culminated in the Playstation 4 Pro from 2016. But in 2020 a new generation is to be released with the Playstation 5, which is eagerly awaited by gamers. Since 2013 the first Playstation 4 is on the market – so it’s really time for something new!

The PS5 offers a native 4K resolution at 120 fps, which was missed by console gamers for so long. However, many of the TVs currently used are not able to display this. First of all, an HDMI 2.1 interface is the key, but also a display that has a refresh rate of 120 Hz. This means that many TVs that were still very good on the PS4 Pro are no longer up to date. That’s why we show you our best TVs for the Playstation 5, which really prepare you for next gen gaming!

These are the Best TVs for PS5 in 2020

Budget PS5 Gaming
Samsung QN65Q70TAFXZA
Since HDMI 2.1 is an essential criterion for the Playstation 5, even our entry-level model is not quite as inexpensive. In consequence, the Q70T allows a 4K resolution with 120 Hz and additionally offers great features like VRR and an Auto Low Latency Mode. However, you have to make a few concessions in terms of picture quality - especially in bright surroundings or at an oblique viewing angle.

The Best budget TV for PS5
Samsung Q70T

The Q70T is the most affordable TV in the QLED range, with an HDMI 2.1 interface. It is therefore classified in our ranking as an entry-level TV if you want to take the 4K resolution of the Playstation 5 to the limit with 120 Hz.  The VA panel has deep blacks and a great contrast ratio of 7100:1, but unfortunately it does not have full array local dimming to enhance it even further, which means that its picture quality can not quite keep up with the other two TVs. In dark surroundings, however, it produces a quite respectable picture – but only if you are sitting straight in front of the TV. At an oblique viewing angle, the colors wash out very quickly. Therefore, the Q70T probably is not really suitable for gaming with several players at the same TV. If you are looking for an entry-level model that has a larger viewing angle, you should probably consider the NANO85. Other QLEDs from the Q80T on could also come into account, but are also more expensive.

The motion handling of the 120 Hz panel is still good with a response time of <7 ms and the input lag is really impressive with ~10 ms at 4K @ 60 Hz – so the TV reacts very fast to a button press on the gamepad. Even our entry-level model provides both a variable refresh rate against screen tearing and an Auto Low Latency Mode, which keeps the input lag as low as possible when the Playstation is turned on.

The QLED’s sound is quite convincing. The built-in speakers are of course not made for enthusiasts, but deliver a reasonable sound quality and can get quite loud. The Q70T supports Dolby formats, but no DTS – as always with Samsung devices. However, Dolby Atmos is available via Dolby True HD thanks to the HDMI eARC interface.

LG NANO90

The NANO90 uses an IPS panel, which ensures a very wide viewing angle. This makes it a good choice especially for team or co-op games, as no one is disadvantaged by fading colors when viewed at an oblique angle. However, IPS panels also have negative characteristics, as the black levels and contrast ratio of 1700:1 are not quite convincing. Thus, it can happen in dark environments that black is displayed more like grey – not exactly what you would wish for in a horror game evening. But it’s hardly noticeable in less dark games, though.

The NANO90 can display 4K content at 120 fps with the HDMI 2.1 interface. However, the input lag increases from 15 ms ([email protected] Hz) to 23 ms. It also has a variable refresh rate, so screen tearing is no problem. LG has even thought of the Auto Low Latency Mode, which keeps the input lag as low as possible by itself, as soon as a switched on console is detected.

The Nano90 is surprisingly well-positioned in terms of sound and supports uncompressed Dolby Atmos through the HDMI eARC, which means that the backdrop of sound can be expanded perfectly.

So you can see that the mid-range TV is quite capable of delivering a great gaming experience. Even if it can not quite match OLEDs in terms of picture quality, it does deliver a decent result in bright rooms.

The Best High-End OLED TV for PS5
LG CX

The LG CX OLED is probably one of the best TVs on the market in 2020. When it comes to gaming, it does not make any concessions and is therefore it is well prepared for the Playstation 5. Thanks to the OLED design, the picture quality in dark environments is impressive with perfect blacks and a theoretically infinite contrast ratio. Also the motion handling of the 120 Hz display with an almost immediate response time is almost unattainable for most other TVs – normal LED TVs do not have a chance in this respect.

Because of its wide viewing angle it is perfectly equipped for gaming with several people. The colors remain vivid even at comparatively oblique viewing angles and do not appear washed out at all. So nothing stands in the way of the next Fifa tournament with the entire team.

The CX has all the features a gamer could wish for. Screen tearing is excluded by a variable refresh rate via HDMI Forum’s VRR and of course an Auto Low Latency Mode is available. The input lag at 4K @ 120 fps is only ~12 ms, which makes the TV feel incredibly responsive while playing.

The sound system is quite reasonable and can get fairly loud – the bass is a bit weak, but this can be compensated by soundbars or hifi systems. It supports uncompressed Dolby Atmos sound to provide really cinema-quality sound from all directions.

Burn-in is not really a problem – especially not when gaming, as no static images are displayed for hours, which could damage the organic LEDs. The risk is generally so low that it is really negligible.

As you can see, HDR gaming with the CX can only be fun!

Powerful console is looking for powerful television

As the Playstation 5 is a console with an incredible performance, the choice of a suitable television set needs to be carefully considered so that the console’s full potential can be transferred to the picture. Because an HDMI 2.1 interface is required for this, the entry-level models are not quite as affordable as they were with the PS4 Pro. But for a resolution of 4K at 120 Hz, a larger bandwidth of at least 40 Gbps is required. Therefore, many TVs fall out of the ranks, which are otherwise also very powerful.

With the Q70T, we have an incredibly strong entry-level model that has all the features relevant for gaming. However, the picture quality of the VA panel and the narrow viewing angle cannot keep up with the other two models, which means they are clearly better. But its input lag is truly impressive!

The NANO90 takes a completely different approach with its IPS panel. The viewing angle is very wide, making gaming in larger groups really fun. Unfortunately, the low black levels and mediocre contrast ratio make the picture not quite as convincing in dark environments. But the Korean can easily handle the 4K resolution with 120 Hz.

With the LG CX, you have entered the top tier of TVs. There is very little that the OLED cannot do. It has a great input lag at 4K resolution with a refresh rate of 120 Hz and combines all the features you might need. The image characteristics of the OLED are unparalleled and cannot be matched by other LED technologies. This is a future-proof model which will have enough power for a long time.
