What are the Best TVs to Use with Next-Gen Consoles?

Best tv for gaming

To take advantage of some of the latest tech developments and the next-gen graphics on newer consoles, you’re going to need a television with some of modern technology’s newest features and capabilities. Although just about any television with an HDMI input can display the console’s content, but it won’t be able to reach the more mind-blowing capabilities you had in mind when you bought the console. 120 FPS(frames per second) and variable refresh rates, Ultra HD 4k resolution, and some of the smoothest and tear-free gaming you can imagine can’t be achieved on your grandma’s old Magnavox, sadly. But that doesn’t mean you have to spend a fortune on some 90-inch monstrosity that costs more than your firstborn. Modern technology has made some of the most console-friendly features that are available on TV’s priced well below $1,000, with some not even 65-inch in size. Meaning you can take the money saved and have your local pros- Installation King show you how to properly install a TV and enjoy the new 4k Ultra HD paradise you call home.

So, how do you tell which TV is not only compatible with the PS5, but is capable of synchronizing well with all of its new features? Well, you’ll want to keep an eye out for a few different things. Rather than break out the chart that makes all these other articles seem plagiarized, we’ll attack this next bit one topic at a time. That way, when it’s all said and done, even if we don’t make a sale, then at least this article may have taught you something useful, and possibly save you some cash down the road.

Some of your modern-day gamers might not be all that familiar with a few different things you’ll want to keep an eye on. One huge thing to keep an eye out for in a new TV is the HDMI input. I think this should go without saying, but there’s always that one guy in the crowd leaving bad reviews because you didn’t quite hold his hand well enough.

Anyways, Ultra HD 4K Resolution. Keep in mind that only newer televisions come equipped with 120 FPS input and variable refresh rates. Depending on what game you’re running, this may or may not even matter. If you’re running something like the newest Call of Duty on multiplayer, then this enhanced graphic capability might be able to give you a slight advantage. But on the other hand, if you’re running something that doesn’t require so much power, like Enter the Gungeon, then the 120 PPS rate may be something you might never even notice.

Auto Low Latency Mode, aka Auto Game Mode (or eARC), is another feature to keep in mind. Though unnecessary, this cable helps simplify things by transferring your audio and video through a single line.

TV for Next-Gen Consoles

With these specifications in mind, we used our extensive knowledge of gaming consoles and our love of all things related to technology and came up with a list of our own to give you a bit of a head start in the race to create your very own gaming oasis.

Best LED TV – Samsung QN90A QLED

-4k resolution

– Extremely low input lag

-Variable Refresh

-Comes in 43”, 50”, 55”, 65”, 75”, and 85”

-Incredibly crisp picture

-Backlight brightness is adjustable

This baby has it all. Beautifully built and insanely powerful. I find it hard to write anything negative about it now that they fixed the issue with dimming during Game Mode.

Cheaper Alternative – Hisense 58” Class 4k UHD LED Roku Smart TV HDR 58R6E3

-58”

-4k UHD 

-3 HDMI inputs

-120 frame per second

-Gaming Mode

-DTS Studio Virtual Surround Sound

In my opinion, you can’t go wrong with the Hisense 58.” Not only is it a more budget-friendly piece of equipment, but it delivers the quality and specifications that match just about any of its competition, but at a lower price. That’s the reason why you see these always stocked on the shelves at Walmart all year round. I recommend it to anyone trying to up their gaming experience while on a budget.

One more vital part of any real gamers setup that you should do your best to remember is that even if you have the best modern TV, it will run slow without a good internet connection. Modern-day technology runs the smoothest using a wide variety of fiber optic cabling rather than DSL connections like the old days. We take a lot of pride in our ability to provide a professional installation of all your fiber optic service needs. We are more than willing to answer any questions you may have about the process. We hope you enjoyed the article. Now, let’s get back to gaming.
