Best TVs for PS5 gaming in South Africa

If you’re among the lucky few that have managed to get their hands on a PlayStation 5, then you should consider getting a top-tier TV that can optimise your console gaming experience.

To achieve this, you should be looking at a TV that offers 4K visuals, low input latency, and a high variable refresh rate.

While all of the TVs on this list offer the features above, there is one that specifically caters to the PS5, and that is the Sony X90J.

If you’re not too concerned with brand compatibility but still interested in features such as FreeSync and G-Sync, then the LG C1 is the pick for you.

If you’re looking for OLED-quality visuals and HDMI 2.1 support without the associated price tag, then the Samsung QA65 is the one to go for.

For those gamers just looking for an excellent 4K TV at the best price, then we recommend the Hisense A6G — But you’ll be sacrificing a little on refresh rate and input lag when compared to the others.

As it happens, the best TVs for console gaming also come with smart TV capabilities.

This means that you’ll also enjoy the convenience of smart TV technology when opting to watch your favourite TV series on your preferred streaming platform.
