LG's 2021 C1 takes the number one spot in our guide to the best TVs for PS5. Not only does its 4K OLED screen offer a fantastic contrast ratio with deep blacks and bright colours, but you also get four HDMI 2.1 ports, which is great if you have another current-gen console or home entertainment device. More affordable than some of its peers, we reckon the C1 delivers a whole lot of bang for your buck.

In fact, not only is this one of the best TVs for the PS5, but it's one of the best TVs full stop. We found its Game Optimiser menu makes it easier to make the most of gaming on the PS5, plus, you can adjust brightness, contrast and VRR (variable refresh rate) on the fly.

If you've just shelled out for a PS5 and some new games, you may be on a slightly smaller budget, and the Samsung AU8000 4K smart TV is a good option. The specs aren't as impressive as some of Samsung's more high-end TVs, but we think this is still more than capable of boosting your gaming experience with its crystal clear visuals, striking 4K detail and Samsung's Adaptive Sound technology.

The AU8000's sleek design also makes it a stylish addition to your gaming setup and there are three HDMI 2.0 ports for your consoles or devices.

Very expensive, and you'll need to pay extra for feet or a stand if you don't want to wall mount it.

LG is a very good brand to look at when it comes to choosing the best TV for PS5. The LG OLEDCX boasts an excellent game optimizer mode that lets you swap between preset modes for first-person shooter, RGPS and RTS titles. Latency is super low and you have four HDMI 2.1 ports. The OLED EVO panel is even brighter than the LG C1 and offers incredible brightness and naturally sharp images. Reviews report that motion handling for both gaming and movies is the best around, and the new Web OS platform is super smooth too and much better at browsing multiple streaming services.

It's worth noting that this TV can be hard to find due to low stock at many retailers. Also, and on top of the already high price tag, you'll need to buy feet or a pedestal stand if you're not planning on wall-mounting the device.

+
A lot of tech for the money
+
Dolby Vision HDR and plenty of streaming apps

Reasons to avoid

-
No 4K 120Hz HDMI support
-
Limited HDR brightest

We reckon this TV from Hisense is a solid budget TV for the PS5. It's an excellent entry-level 4K HDR screen with a slim bezel, spaced-out feet and three HDMIs on the back. The only downside is that there's no 4K 120Hz support. Each of the ports supports ALLM and VRR, plus eARC.

For this price, the overall picture performance is great, with great detail and reasonable dynamics. Dolby Vision helps a lot and motion handling is good too. The US version has Android TV with Chromecast built-in, while the UK comes with Hisense’s own Vidaa smart platform plus Freeview Play.
