Sony is ushering in the start of a brand new console generation with PlayStation 5, and with that comes new technology to be taken advantage of. No matter what television set you currently own, you’re going to notice a big upgrade the moment you boot up the new console. However, if you truly want to take full advantage of its capabilities, a sufficient TV will be needed to go hand in hand with the system. Most of us have wrapped our heads around 4K resolution and HDR, but what about support for 120 frames-per-second? What is a variable refresh rate? Worry no longer because we’re going to break everything down for you and recommend the best 4K TVs for use with PS5. For more general information on the console, check out our comprehensive PS5 guide.
Understanding what it is you need to be looking out for when it comes to purchasing a new television set, especially for a new console, is not the easiest task. Believe us, we’ve been there. With lists upon lists of specifications to parse through, it can be difficult to identify what separates the best TV from the rest. Because of that, we’re going to list some of the most important features you need to be looking out for when considering what TV to purchase for use with PS5.
Now, taking everything we’ve learned into account, we’re going to share our recommendations for the best 4K TVs you can buy alongside a PS5. We’ll start at the high-end with television sets offering absolutely everything you could ask for before working our way down the price scale for the money-conscious gamer. That will result in the loss of some features the cheaper we get, however.
We start with the absolute best of the very best. The range of LG CX televisions includes absolutely every feature you could possibly want for PS5 gaming. With four HDMI 2.1 ports and support for 120Hz, you’ll be able to run capable PS5 titles at 120 frames-per-second. 4K is no big deal for the LG CX and neither is HDR10 — there’s even variable refresh rate support. The OLED panel also dramatically improves image quality and colours across the board, making it the true differentiator when compared to any other TV on this list. If money isn’t a problem, you won’t be able to do better than the latest and greatest from LG.

If you’re worried about burn-in from an OLED panel and are turned off by the seriously high price of the LG CX TV, Samsung’s Q80T would be your best bet. QLED is Samsung’s take on OLED and is widely claimed to be brighter and have a longer lifespan across larger screen sizes. YOU ARE, meanwhile, has better viewing angles and deeper black levels.
What separates the Samsung Q80T QLED TV from the LG CX range is that only one of its HDMI ports offers 2.1 support. This means that in order to run PS5 games at 120 frames-per-second, you would need to connect the console to the correct port. If you are purchasing an Xbox Series X alongside the PS5, for example, you would need to swap the HDMI 2.1 cable between each system as and when you want to use them. Elsewhere, it delivers a beautiful 4K resolution and even HDR10+. This is a fantastic option if your budget can’t stretch to accommodate the LG CX range. A great 4K set at a slightly cheaper price.
This is the last TV on the list with HDMI 2.1 and 120Hz support, so if you haven’t found the set right for you following this effort, it’s time to wave goodbye to 120 frames-per-second gaming on PS5. Sony’s XH9005 television set sports neither an OLED nor QLED display, which is reflected in its price. The smallest screen size will take you just below the four-figure mark but there’s still a lot of quality on show here. With two HDMI 2.1 ports, you won’t have to worry about the problem that comes with Samsung’s Q80T QLED range either.
Elsewhere, it’s very much par for the course. A good input latency means you won’t have any trouble gaming on this TV and a 4K, HDR10 display will shine in the next generation. Good stuff, Sony.
Unfortunately, we must now see HDMI 2.1 and 120Hz support off into the sunset. The next set of televisions can only run PS5 games at up to 60 frames-per-second, but that is eventually reflected in their price. If you’re not too bothered about that feature-set though, you can get a good deal on a reasonably priced TV. Take this television, for example, another from Sony. It can go all the way up to 85 inches, although you might want to watch out for that input latency. It’s 25% higher than the XH9005 model and only £100 cheaper in the UK.
Here we get away from the biggest TV manufacturers for a Panasonic set that wouldn’t look out of place in the home. This stylish television can be as small as 40 inches at the base price and still packs a lovely 4K, HDR10+ display. It’s the typical mid-range TV set that gets the job done while packing in a couple of surprises here and there. If you don’t want to break the bank whilst ensuring quality is kept to a relatively good standard, this Panasonic TV is a good option.
What’s this? A fairly affordable QLED panel? That’s right, not all of Samsung’s televisions are in the four-figure price range, meaning you can purchase a TV set that will look gorgeous in any living room without blowing the budget. Once again, you’re not going to be running PS5 titles at 120 frames-per-second on this thing, but with an extremely low input latency, you’re good to go for anything else the next generation of consoles throws at us.
Here’s where you start to get some bang for your buck — the Samsung TU8000 TV comes in at just £379/$347 for a 43-inch set and boasts of a fantastic 4K, HDR picture quality. Again, there’s no way of playing PS5 games at 120 frames-per-second on it, but an extremely low input latency ensures that a great deal of quality gaming can be done using this television. It also has tons of apps built into the operating system, meaning Netflix, Amazon Prime, Disney+, and more are only a button press away.
We’re back to discussing LG TVs, but it’s worth mentioning these sets do not come with an OLED screen. That’s reserved for the higher-priced televisions. However, the LG UN74006LB range can still boast of a quality 4K, HDR10 picture at a seriously cheap price. Just £349.00 for the 43-inch edition! While you won’t be able to run PS5 games at 120 frames-per-second with this LG set, you’re still getting a great deal on a TV that takes advantage of most of the console’s features.
Have any of these 4K TVs taken your fancy? Check out our PS5 guide for more information and share any further recommendations in the comments below.
On any given day, Liam is most likely playing the latest PS4 release or hunting for a Platinum Trophy. Outside of video games, he can be found tirelessly supporting Derby County, unfortunately.
LG Nanocell 85 series does 4k/120 and is as low as $599 right now. Please add to the list!
I currently own a 4K TV, but I only have a base PS4. One of the things I’m looking forward to about the PS5 is playing games like God of War and Days Gone in 4K.
Given I got my TV a few years ago, I don’t have 120hz support and probably not Variable refresh rates. I don’t see the need to upgrade yet though. 120fps will be in so few games and with such huge compromise (even on series X, see Dirt 5 for example) that I’ll happily take 60fps at 4K.
I bought an LG CX a month ago and I’m very impressed, but I wasn’t able to get a PS5 on preorder so it may be some time before I see what the TV is capable of.
Just FYI, during Prime Day, I was able to get the 65″ Sony X900H for $998 USD + 10% back in credit by using my Prime card, so under $900 (before taxes). I wouldn’t be surprised if similar deals pop up on Black Friday.
Also of note, the X900H remote controls my PS4 navigation and apps, which is cool. Not sure if it will carry over to the PS5, but it works on the PS4.
Another (potential) perk is that one of the X900H’s HDMI 2.1 ports (HDMI 3) supports eARC…once a standard is settled upon and a firmware update is patched in.
@LiamCroft Not really in the market for a TV as I just recently upgraded but the guide is appreciated nonetheless.
But is there any chance you guys could put together a PS5 sound system primer or recommendations article. The visual stuff seems pretty straightforward to me but when it comes to optimal sound setups, I’m really lost.
@lacerz my Vizio remote also worked to control ps4 in everything except games, not sure the support for PS5
@2cents Interesting. I had a Vizio previously, but never tried to use the remote with the PS4. I only happened upon the Sony remote working because the TV’s smart apps work so much better that I’ve started using them more and grabbed the remote while on the PS4.
I currently own a slightly older Bravia TV but PS4, Switch and even Steam games played through Steam Link looked really good on that display. I can only imagine what a console capable of 4K out of the box can accomplish.
I’m trying to figure out if i really need that 120Hz panel. I want to go for something bigger than my tiny tv, but if most of the time 120Hz would mean 1080p, idk if it’s gonna look decent enough on a bigger 4K screen. 1440p at 60fps sounds like a good spot.
I have an LG B7 OLED that suffers from horrible burn-in damage, so I really need a new TV, but I’m not sure I want to go with LG again because of this experience 😢
I currently have a 4K60Hz HDR LG and I’ve been umm-ing and arr-ing the justification for a 120Hz upgrade. I don’t believe many games next gen will take advantage of it and I believe most more demanding games will target 4K60, if so I’m pretty much set.
My brother has a Samsung QLED an earlier model from last year though and personally I don’t like it.
Even when correctly calibrated I find in HDR it oversaturates the colours compared to my LG that to my eye look far more accurate.
There’s a fair bit of motion blur even in game mode and some input lag, red lightsabers in Battlefront 2 appear more pink-ish due to the overly bright panal and as I said I’ve verified via AV Forums and rtings that it is correctly calibrated.
I appreciate you guys covering some of the 40-43” sets, but there are better models available in those sizes than the cheap base ones. I bought a 43” LG 4k HDR TV in 2017, and it’s the best version of that model, so although it’s hampered somewhat by edge lighting, it has 4 HDMI ports and Dolby Vision. Could you possibly do another article covering better models at smaller screen sizes, please?
Lol talks about HDR and doesn’t even mention the wide color gamut which is what actually makes HDR worth it. Some TV’s have HDR but no color gamut and every HDR TV has HDR10, well can I expect from a journo 🤦🏾♂️.
Also I you care too much about and looking to buy a new TV check this website these guys are the best at analysing TV. https://www.rtings.com/
@b1ackjack At this point I don’t think 4K is an absolute necessity, especially with the advent of stuff like graphics and performance presets in console games. You only buy a 4K TV specifically for gaming if you want to futureproof for games/consoles that are further down
Uhh…no. This is totally not true. Samsung QLED is some creative marketing for Samsung’s upper-end LED TVs that have a filter applied to them. Samsung QLED is nothing like OLED or really even competitive too it except in the broadest sense that all TVs share. Arguably, Samsung’s QLED TVs aren’t even really QLED.
That being said, I am not saying you shouldn’t buy a Samsung QLED if that is your preference but calling it Samsung’s version of OLED is completely silly. It is just an LED-LCD TV with most of the same pros and cons that come with other LED TVs on the market.
@TheFrenchiestFry If we are talking about TVs, you are most likely either going to get 4K+HDR or 1080p without HDR. 1080p TVs with HDR are not very common.
If I was buying a TV for gaming I would 100% be looking at a set that could, at minimum, do 4K+HDR.
More than that, I think VRR is one of the biggest game changers from a gaming perspective and I doubt you will find a 1080p TV with VRR.
You might find some gaming monitors with those specs but most of them will rely on DP to deliver them which will be a problem for these consoles which need HDMI 2.1.
Of course, that assumes you are buying a new TV to begin with. If you are using an existing TV, it certainly isn’t essential you run out and get a 4K model for your new console.
Are their any TVs that are smaller like between 20 to 30 inches or am I best looking at monitors?
Worth noting that the Q80t only does 120hz in certain modes, and specifically not game mode from what I’ve read. Bottom line is you can play at 120hz but have slightly higher latency.
@edulanza10 At least he noted input latency, as opposed to response time, like most retailers only bother mentioning.
Thanks for the guide Liam but it’s annoying we’re at a point where it looks like as we’re upgrading our consoles we need to upgrade TVs as well. TVs just used to be TVs and it was the console that mattered. It’s made gaming a lot more expensive tbh.
@AdamNovice Unless you literally don’t have anything to play it on right now I would wait until you can get a monitor with HDMI 2.1 for reasonable money.
Bought a 49″ Sony Bravia just the other month and Red Dead Redemption 2 on my original PS4 looks absolutely lush on it. Can’t wait to see games in 4k.
@CptH0vvDy yes, but most TV’s nowadays have a game mode which makes this issue non existent. Besides if you care really about input latency that much you get a monitor. But HDR is what actually worth upgrading a TV that’s a game changer
Yeesh, everyone is making such a big fuss over HDMI 2.1 when most games won’t even run at 120 fps in the first place. It’s really not worth the hassle or money to upgrade to a HDMI 2.1 compatible TV if you already own a 4K TV. 60 fps is going to be the standard
@evan23 lol when I was reading it I noticed it lol he did no research. But I actually switch from an oled to qled. My oled got a burn in image which also it nowhere to be seen on this article. Samsung doesn’t make oled tv because of this issue. But the qled are actually fantastic tv the colors are equal to oled. Oled just beat it in black levels
I’ve spent several weeks looking at review and comparison videos and reading articles on all these TV’s
Bottom line is wait for 2021.
Every 4k TV has one issue or another, be it blooming, banding, burn-in with OLED, poor implementation of 4k. problems with colour, VRR and ALLM
Samsung are talking about releasing a mini-led TV with loads of benefits over both current gen led and OLED.
I’ve decided to wait for the 2021 TV’s
@LiamCroft there is also Samsung Q70t it supports hdmi 2.1 and VRR it should be there too
@edulanza10 How I love it when you put effort into an article and people like you claim you’ve done “no research”. Have a bit more respect.
A cheaper option to LG CX if you can find one is the LG C9 4k, 122Hz, HDR
@edulanza10 Samsung doesn’t make OLED TVs because LG owns the patents and Samsung won’t buy panels from LG. In fact, they sued them over it trying to invalidate LG’s patents so they could compete.
That being said, is OLED better than QLED? That is not an answerable question. It depends what you priorities are. There are pros and cons between LED TVs and OLED TVs.
My primary point was stating the QLED is Samsung’s take on OLED is simply not true.
@Tchunga HDMI 2.1 isn’t only about [email protected] It also adds things like VRR, ALLM and eARC. Those add value in their own right.
Not saying you should upgrade just to get those things but if you are buying now I would definitely make sure the TV has HDMI 2.1 or wait until you can get a TV that does.
To achieve respectable HDR the TV needs to reach 1000 Nits, the Sony Xh90 peaks around 700Nits whereas the Sony Xh95 peaks at 1000Nits, aside from the lack of 2.1 Hdmi the Sony Xh95 is far superior in every other way to the cheaper Sony Xh90.
@evan23 but Samsung makes oled screens for their premium phones, also they supply apple with oled screen for the iPhone manufacturing process. Besides Sony, Vizio also make Oled TV I just seem to recall LG being more mainstream and affordable.
Jesus I absolutely agreed with you reading that statement was jarring in a TV buying guide.
@LiamCroft It’s a lose lose for you guys. In previous articles people request some help regarding suitable TVs for PS5, and when you put one out you get “experts” creeping out the woodwork spouting their negativity. If you know more than the journalists then the article clearly isn’t for you.
Thanks, good to bear in mind for the future. I just went for a cheap upgrade and am regretting not going for a set with 2.1 HDMI but even 4K 60 fps will be an improvement for my eyes!
Always been a Panasonic fan but our plasma recently died so we’ve got an LG CX65 coming this friday.Bit worried about leaving the panny brand (I know LG make the panels) but HDMI 2.1 swung it.
@evan23 I still just don’t see the point though. Technology is always advancing, right now the big thing is HDMI 2.1, next year it will be something else. And then again the next year. Trying to keep “up to date” with technology is a fools errand
wait you expect the wife not only to let me get ps5. (how much is it)now you think i should push for a new tv. Shes from transylvania i already add garlic to everything i cook as it is are you mad. shakes head
@Tchunga agree especially when my two kids spend more time watching it than i ever do. and they are restricted as well lol. I end up playing on my dual screen monitor set up. usally while im doing something else on the pc.
@edulanza10 I am not sure about the phones but for the TVs, I am pretty sure both Sony and Vizio are getting the panels from LG.
@Tchunga you could make that same argument about buying next generation consoles. To me, buying a set right now to connect to a PS5 and not getting something that supports VRR/4K/HDR would be crazy. VRR is the feature I think people are seriously overlooking. It will basically offer tear free gaming even when frame rates dip.
Again, not saying you should upgrade just to get those features, that is a whole different story.
@LiamCroft you have to question the age of the people that make these kind of comment’s ………..Don’t get disheartened we appreciate the effort you have put into the article.
@evan23 Thanks for the advice, I’ve got a 1080p TV that’s still good for me so I don’t really need one but I like to keep an eye out
@evan23 I think a console is a BIT different. But yeah you’re right, you could make that argument. Especially considering most big next gen titles are also cross gen (with a few exceptions like Demon’s Souls). I imagine most people won’t even pick up a PS5 or Series X until late 2021/early 2022
@evan23 Yes both Samsung and Lg supply Apple with OLED screens. Also, the OLED Samsung uses are called AMOLED in their with again its a marketing name for OLED. I guess they use OLED on their phone because the life of a phone is no the same as a TV.
@LiamCroft You’re a journalist. I don’t know if you have a college degree in journalism or not, but nowadays technology has increased access to mass communication for many people, but simply having the ability to communicate on a large scale does not make a person a journalist. Also in this modern age of information overload, it is vital for people to understand which information is trustworthy and which information is unreliable.
If you get upset for people calling you out on your articles then you must be doing something wrong. You wrote an article about buying a TV and you glossed very important stuff like not stating the different formats of HDR (HDR10, HDR10+, Dolby Vision) Saying stuff like “QLED is Samsung’s take on OLED ” in a TV buying guide it’s very jarring and evidence that you didn’t do enough research. Finally also ignoring that the PS5 has an ULTRA HD Player which is a huge point for movie fanatics 🤷🏾♂️.
I’m new to this site and actually enjoyed it but your articles leave a lot to be desired honestly. Take this as constructive criticism, not as an offense. Also, you got very sentimental when many people called you out on the “upgrade” of God of War on PS5.
@LiamCroft The CX shouldn’t be on this list and shouldn’t be recommended due to issues with VRR and 120Hz.
This is a known issue, acknowledged by LG and there’s nothing that can be done about it as it is to do with the panels on C9 and CX models.
I can’t be certain but, I think the Sony XH9005 suffers a similar sort of issue. Maybe somebody else can confirm?
@edulanza10 The guide mentions HDR10 and HDR10+ where relevant for every TV recommended. I don’t see what the PS5’s Ultra HD player has to do with this.
i would certainly stay away from oled as burn-in problems still occur more frquently than they should. you can say that it doesnt affect everyone, but should you be unlucky you will regret your purchase. also, you will need to take measures to avoid burn-in with everyday use, such as not watching content that has a watermark in the same location for long periods of time… unfortunately, with gaming and the ui/hud being static, you will need to be careful not to play games for too long or else risk permanent burn-in. when i game, i want a peace of mind and don’t want to think about all this nonsense. oled is not an option for me personally in its current state for these reasons. i would go with a sony 900h or 950h.
Hence, only the features differ slightly. The CX has the Black Frame Insertion feature at 120Hz, Dolby Vision IQ and better integrated speakers. In return, the HDMI 2.1 interface of the C9 has a wider bandwidth – which really does not make a difference until now.
But the LG CX have a newer and highter version processor gen 3 vs gen 2 LG C9.
It depends wich country you are from propably.
Because here in Holland 3 big shops sell them with huge different prices.
@Porco Unless you play games 8 hours a day for months on end then burn-in won’t be an issue.
@Bentleyma- Days gone is slept on. Starts off a little slow but once you get into it and take down your first horde its a great game.
@LiamCroft I search the words HDR10+ in this guide and this is what I’ve found:1.Elsewhere, it delivers a beautiful 4K resolution and even HDR10+. 2. 4K, HDR10+, HDMI 2.1 (with one port), 120Hz, VRR3. This stylish television can be as small as 40 inches at the base price and still packs a lovely 4K, HDR10+ display.4.Elsewhere, it delivers a beautiful 4K resolution and even HDR10+
Mostly in the description of the TVs, you’re talking about. But do you know what HDR10+ actually means?
This is one definition of HDR10+ “HDR10+ works differently than HDR10. It sends dynamic metadata, which allows TVs to set up color and brightness levels frame-by-frame. This makes the picture look realistic. HDR10 aims to produce 1000 nits of peak brightness, whereas HDR 10+ supports up to 4000 nits. In addition, both the standards support 10-bit color depth, which is approximately 1024 shades of primary colors. HDR10 and HDR10+ are two most popular standards, shipped in mid-high end TVs.”
Also if you had done your research you should know that right now we are in an HDR format war just like in the PS3/360 era it was Blu-ray vs HD DVD. Many TVs don’t offer Dolby vision(Mostly Samsung TVs) which might win over HDR10+.
Also saying stuff like this is what I was referring to, “I don’t see what the PS5’s Ultra HD player has to do with this.” 4K Ultra Blurays that why another aspect to considered when buying a TV. People considering buying a PS5 Digital might what to know about this. Watch a 4k movie on Netflix it’s not the same as watching a 4k movie on an ULTRA HD player.
Well I’ve got 4K, 55in, HDR, and 60Hz. Not bad. I’m happy with that. It don’t need the latest and greatest and I also don’t have $1,000 to blow on another TV
2 days ago I bought myself a LG BX 65inch TV for PS5… currently on the road getting delivered! couldnt be more excited to test the beast out
@hypnotoad unfortunately it doesn’t always work that way. i wish it were true but there are many accounts online of people taking care and playing games conservatively and experiencing burn-in problems. even a few months after purchasing the tv. the tech is getting more reliable each passing year but due to the material it will always be an issue. micro led will eventually make its way and replace oled as the superior technology but we are a few years away still. but if one were to pay extra for a 3 year warranty and get an oled, that seems like a safe bet. otherwise, i would go with led as it does have a few benefits over oled, such as brighter peak brightness and better HDR experience etc. black levels on led with local dimming is much better than it was in the past without it, even if it isn’t at the same level as oled.
@Porco I had and oled and after 4 years the burn in happened, now I’ve switched to a qled and the colors are as vibrant but you get weaker black levles but not a deal breaker
Samsung Q80T 55 inch. Beast. Got it the other day and it’s a freaking unit. Such a great purchase. the long life it will provide too will be worth it.
The qled range is on offer at the moment too through Samsung directly and hdmi 2.1 is supported from q60t or 70t onwards. Just don’t buy 49 inch in my opinion as it lacks certain features
I got a really good deal a couple of years ago on a 70″ Vizio 4K HDR TV. It’s not the best, but I’ll be happy with it for a while.
@edulanza10I suspect Liam meant well, but the quality of knowledge being shown is woeful and could be be very damaging to the target audience.
You mentioned in your post that you considered VRR a game changer. The link infers that won’t be the case, at least for the foreseeable future.
@oldpeculiar That link doesn’t talk about VRR at all unless I am missing it. It talks about high fps.
VRR isn’t about high fps. It is about the display dynamically matching the refresh rate. Where it helps the most is with lower, inconsistent frame rates.
One of the digital foundry videos talks about VRR and how impressive it is. I think it is the one on gears 5 towards the end.
The X900 is the best value with 2.1 HDMI ports, true 120hz and variable refresh rate (just was updated via firmware about a month ago). This TV jumped back up to $1400 right now but a couple weeks ago it was only $1000. Luckily I jumped on it then (also comes with 5 year manufacture warranty) and haven’t looked back since! Even games currently on my ps4 simply look stunning compared to my old 1080p tv.
The only three tvs I ever considered were the LG CX ($2k+) , Samsung Q80 ($1500+) or the Sony 950 ($1k+). Between those tvs I couldn’t see a big enough leap in quality to justify another $500-1000
I went for a TV not on the list. Not specifically for Ps5 (waiting for slim version) decided on overall picture quality and got the Sony A85. Don’t really need 120 fps with low details. GT sport looks amazing on this TV as well as blu ray upscale to 4k Sony is the best in the business.
@Bentleyma- I have a 4K tv with 120hz panel but it only has 2.0 hdmi sockets, very annoying.
I was hoping to indicate that VRR for consoles may not be such an importance as the majority of games developed will be capped at 30/60 fps as the prevalence off VRR equipped TVs are in the minority for a long time to come.
Well I was looking to get the LG 55 CX model for the 2.1 but in the end I decided that I probably won’t notice it that much and not many games will have it for a while. I was literally in the shop going to get it, then saw a LG un71006 LC 75″ and thought might as well go big haha it’s 4k HDR picture is good has game mode which is good and was only £900 so saved a few hundred rather than getting the cx and risking screen burn as I do use my TV a lot. I am happy with it so that’s all that matters lol. And considering I managed the whole PS3 gen without a hd TV think I will be fine without 2.1 for a while. And will be nice to play 4k as I only have base ps4 so can’t wait to try my ps5 in few weeks.
My most desired feature with my next tv, 4K, and next gen gaming overall is the control of motion blur. That is game makers ditch the blur or offer a disable option, and the tv to have settings to reduce or remove motion blur that game maker can not or will not remove or offer an off option.
My old 1080p LG tv has always had a sharp image with great colors but there is no control of motion blur in the game mode setting. However out of game mode i can set both de-blur and de-judder to max and remove or substantially reduce the amount of annoying motion blur that can make a game unplayable.
I got the Sony x900h a few weeks ago and I love it. PS4 pro looks great on it and I can’t wait to hook up a PS5 whenever I can find one. Highly recommend it.
@lacerz how do you control your PS4 with the tv remote? I also have the x900h and love it but didn’t know about this feature
LG CX owner here. It brings gaming to a whole new level even on the PS4. HDR is impressive on this tv and plenty bright hitting close to 750 nits. I have put over 2000 hours on mine with gaming 4-6 hours a day. Haven’t had any burn in but I do the pixel refresher almost every night when going to sleep. You will not regret it, just go buy one and enjoy the best affordable TV on the market.
The whole screen burn thing was seen as a major issue by some in the days of plasmas. I seem to recall the same fuss was made about it then as it is about OLED now. I had one for years and never had an issue. Others claimed to have endless problems. It’s a panel lottery, always has been.
Now have an LG CX and am absolutely loving it. I don’t have anything that supports VRR to see if the reported gamma issue is going to be a problem. If it is I’ll just disable it.
@LiamCroft @evan23 QLED is a micro LED technology, Crystal LED by Sony and LG has their own version. It is different to both LED LCD and OLED. Just do a Google search on MicroLED or CLEDIS.
@huyi what do you think of it? I’m thinking about getting it. Is it still good even though it’s basically the cheapest 4k/120 tv I’ve seen?
It is an evolution of the same “quantum dot” filter they have been using for years now. They just started calling it qled at some point to make it sound like oled.
@evan23 Ah, I see. Thanks for the information, I see I was incorrect. Sorry about that. I had read about Samsung’s The Wall, which may or may not use different technology. It had been compared to Sony’s Crystal LED system called CLEDIS, which is made up of modular panels that can be connected together.
I wish Sony would make consumer TVs with Crystal LED. It is the bleeding edge of technology by the sounds of it.
@Excess Newer OLED TVs are much better for screen burn prevention and the CX and BX offer warranty for screen burn 👍
@LiamCroft First off: great overview, but I have a detail to add. Apparently, the OLED panels from LG do have some problems with Variable Refresh Rate. https://www.oled-a.org/lgersquos-48rdquo-oled-attracting-game-monitor-buyers_9620.html#If it’s a panel issue, it can’t be dealt with via software update. People might want to know, before they’re going to spend a few thousand bucks on it.
