The best TVs for video gaming

With the latest generation of incredible consoles, and even better next-gen AAA games, you’re going to want the absolute best in 4K TVs to truly experience what gaming has to offer this year. But the TV gaming market is a bit of a maze to say the least; OLED, QLED, Neo-QLED, QNED, all this jargon appears everywhere, and a lot of them are difficult to decipher by yourself, that’s why we’re here to help. 

We’ve gathered the best and brightest TVs from across the internet and chosen our favourites to figure out what’s the best TV for video gaming. But first things first; some jargon-busting.

OLED vs QLED – what’s better for gaming?

OLED and QLED are the absolute cutting-edge TV screen technologies right now, each with their own benefits and disadvantages, but which one is better?

QLED – QLED, or Quantum-dot Light Emitting Diode, are absolutely tiny diodes that form a QLED screen, and unlike OLED, they use a standard backlight to produce picture. The primary advantage of QLED is the fantastic colour and vibrancy you can achieve, with many QLED TVs coming in around 1,500-2,000 nits (essentially double the brightness of an OLED TV), rest assured films, TV shows, and sports are going to pop off the screen.

OLED – OLED, or Organic Light Emitting Diode, is a form of TV screen that is made of self-lighting diodes, eliminating the need for a backlight. The benefits of this are astronomical, TVs can be thinner and lighter, colour contrasts are deeper and richer than ever before, and response times are lightning-fast. Many OLED TVs run at 120 Hz, with about 1ms input delay, making them great for gaming. OLED’s main disadvantage, however, is their lack of true brightness, being only a fraction as bright as a standard QLED TV, which is a small price to pay for the sharpest gameplay you can possibly have.

Samsung S95B 4K TV


Samsung’s S95B 4K TV is the essential modern gaming TV. A huge display with razor-sharp response times, Dolby Atmos surround sound and a fantastic 4k Neural Quantum Processor that upscales images to 4K in real-time. The best feature though is its brand-new technology that is about to take the tech world by storm – the screen is both a QLED and an OLED screen. For gamers, it means that you’re getting the unbeatable brightness and colour range of QLED, while simultaneously getting the ultra-fast response times and dark tones of OLED – now that’s impressive.



Our next gaming TV is made by LG, who make some of the absolute best gaming TVs available in the UK. While this TV isn’t quite as technologically innovative as Samsung’s S95B, it’s still at the absolute forefront of gaming television tech. At 120Hz with a stunning brightness booster that uses AI to increase screen vibrancy up to 20 per cent, making it one of the absolute brightest OLED displays ever made.

Philips 43PUS8807/12 43” 4K TV


Our last pick is far more budget friendly than our other two, but isn’t going to provide that eye-popping colour or contrast that an OLED or QLED TV is going to provide. Hitting a 120Hz refresh rate, with crisp visuals and solid Dolby Atmos sound – gaming on the Philips 43PUS8807 feels and looks fantastic. Best of all though, it’s got Philips’ Ambilight feature, which casts light on the surrounding walls to draw your eye in, creating even more immersion than before.
