Best Value PS5 TV

Hi I am after a new TV for use with PS5 primarily with the occasional movie / TV series. (No sport)

What I think I need
50-65"
HDMI 2.1
4k
OLED ?
Integration with hue? Is this a thing? best to do separately?

So the question is what is the best bang for my buck? what should I keep a look out for?

  • I have the Sony x90h - I'm trying to return it to Sony as it has bad Dirty Screen Effect, they've been a real pain and I'm dealing with QLD Office of Fair Trading now. Maybe look into Samsung Q80t? 2k for a 65inch with all the features you need is a decent deal.

  • I dont think you have many choices for OLED 50-65'
    I would personally prefer CX 55. I am waiting for this to be on sale for around $2500

    • is OLED the way to go? I am really not up with what is best for gaming

      • Do you want best or do you want value? You can't have both OLED high refresh rate and best bang for buck.

        HDMI2.1 only matters if you want to play handful of 4K120 games. Vast majority will be 4K60 and doesn't need it.

        Hue integration is only with Philips Ambilight TVs. For all others, you'll need the Philips Hue Play Sync Box.

          YET, later on in the gen you will.

        • I after value not the cheapest.

          I want the features (best gaming performance without going overboard) so I won't feel the need to upgrade in a short time.

  • you want one that has a 4K 120hz refresh as well. Samsung variants do not currently display in 120hz 4K, Sony releasing an update in March.

  • You don't necessarily want OLED. LED HDR TVs these days can get fairly deep blacks with zoned backlighting, plus light sources on the screen can get really quite bright (brighter than OLED can) whilst another area of the screen is pitch black. Think a candle or a flashlight in a dark room.

    Not as deep as an OLED

    light sources on the screen can get really quite bright (brighter than OLED can) whilst another area of the screen is pitch black.

    It'll never be 'pitch black,' and even full array local dimming still has bloom. Get an LCD if you can't afford an OLED or intend on using your TV in a bright room most of the time, otherwise picture quality is night and day.

  • People expecting 4k 120hz games are straight up out of their minds / fallen for marketing. It's not going to happen. Unless you're playing indies or older games that actually get a patch.

    PS4 games don't run at 4k 120 fps, no chance next gen games will. No point future proofing either, that's another marketing gimmick. Consoles have always traditionally favoured graphics over fps, if 4k120 ever did become prevalent in another generations time, everything else about the TV will be obsolete lol.

    Previous gen oled or a budget brand qled is where the value is.

    • After doing some research, I think you're right. HDMI 2.1 is a mess right now too. There's not enough bandwidth in most tvs to allow 4:4:4 subsampling, 4k120 and VRR all at the same time. Something has to give and it seems the TVs deprioritize one thing for another. Plus, HDMI 2.1 receivers aren't really out due to a chipset bug and getting eARC to work seems to be a nightmare right now. I am a gamer but will be going for a TV that looks good and is not crazy on the budget. I think I've settled on the Sony 75" X9000H as that has most features and has a few bugs but is relatively good for the price ~$3K on commercial good guys. I'm just gonna wait a bit longer for a sale and also to see what Samsung is gonna do about my current panel that needs warranty (I'm hoping they just refund me or let me choose a next gen tv and pay the difference). Another option is the Samsung Q80T but I hear the full array local dimming isn't fantastic in games. It's all a tradeoff game right now and, with the TV that has it all (LG CX), you'd be lucky to get one and it's far too expensive - plus, the HDMI 2.1 ports don't support full bandwidth (40gbps instead of 48gbps).

      How did they mess up HDMI 2.1 so badly?

  • I'm currently playing on the C9 and loving it.
