While you might already own a 4K TV, not all of them are compatible with the stunning 120Hz refresh rate supported by Xbox series X and PS5 consoles.
In fact, to achieve a 120Hz refresh rate at 4K, an HDMI 2.1 port is needed, which is still not very common, even in the most recent TVs.
In addition, features like variable refresh rates, video sync modes and low input lag can all improve your next-gen gaming experience.
Without further ado, here are the best TVs to enjoy your next-gen consoles to the fullest.
1. Samsung TU8000 43″

With a beautifully detailed 4K picture, solid upscaling and effective motion handling, the Samsung TU8000 is easily one of the best gaming TVs you can get right now.
The TU8000 has three 2.1 HDMI ports, which is less than many TVs today, but still enough to connect some of your favourite devices.
It also offers HDR capabilities, a pleasantly intuitive smart TV operating system, and three audio setting modes.
Given its price, the TU8000 is certainly a solid option to consider if you’re looking for a gaming 4K TV.
