The Best 4K TVs For Xbox Series X

Now that the Xbox Series X and S is out in the wild, you might be considering picking up a new television in order to get the best out of Microsoft's powerful new console. For a while now you could just go to the local electronics store and pick up a 4K TV with the assurance that if it had HDR then you were all set, but with this new generation of consoles there are a few more things to consider. Namely support for 120FPS - most current TVs only support 60 frames per second which is fine, but if you want to get the very best experience from the powerful Series X, then you might want to upgrade to a 120FPS compatible TV.

Stick with us and we'll break down the best options for you in this lovely guide.

The Best 4K TVs for Xbox Series X: What Should You Be Looking For?

Getting your head around what it is you should be looking for when buying another TV isn't the simplest undertaking. Trust us, we've been all there. In this guide we'll consider what features are most important in a TV which you will use with an Xbox Series X.

  • 4K resolution - a no-brainer which you are going to want in any TV in 2020. 1080p simply doesn't cut it anymore.
  • HDR or High Dynamic Range is another important feature as it will give you the best brightness and colours in games. We recommend that you look for a TV with HDR10.
  • Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos will be enabled for the first time ever in console history with the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S, with the former enabling ultravivid picture quality - incredible brightness, contrast, colour and detail. The two consoles will support this feature for entertainment apps at launch, and it's coming to games in 2021.
  • 120 frames-per-second is now possible with select games on Xbox Series X, but you'll need a TV with 120Hz support to activate this. Furthermore, if you want to play games at 4K resolution at 120Hz, you must also purchase a 4K TV with HDMI 2.1 and 120Hz support. Microsoft will supply an Ultra High-Speed 2.1 HDMI cable inside the Xbox Series X packaging for use with next-gen games that support 4K, 120Hz.
  • Variable refresh rate is separate from the typical chatter of gaming frame rates. Commonly referred to as VRR, it is a new feature that allows the Xbox Series X and TV to communicate and adjust refresh rates on the fly.
  • Input latency is also very important when choosing the right 4K TV for gaming purposes. This is the time it takes for your button press to be accepted by the console and then sent to the TV for display, so you want this particular statistic to be as small as possible.

Sony Bravia XH9005 TV

Sony's XH9005 forgoes the OLED / QLED panel, but it's got the all-important HDMI 2.1 ports and 120Hz support, so for the price it's worth considering.

The Best 4K TVs For Xbox Series X Guide 5

LG NANO866NA TV

The LG NANO866NA (similar to the LG NANO85 in other parts of the world) is one of the cheapest HDMI 2.1 - and therefore, 4K, 120FPS - options available on the market right now, and from experience, does a fantastic job with the Xbox Series X. The only downside here is some pretty poor backlight bleed when using the local dimming feature, but if you can live with that, the LG NANO866NA can literally handle anything the Xbox Series X throws at it.

We've actually been testing the Xbox Series X on a 49' version of this set for the past two weeks pre-launch, and can confirm that it looks great and runs very well at 4K, 120Hz on the system (after a firmware update!).

  • Available in 49, 55 and 65 inch-variations
  • 4K, HDR10, HDMI 2.1, 120Hz, VRR, Dolby Vision
  • Roughly 15ms of input latency
  • Prices range from £699 through to £999

Panasonic TX-HX800BZ TV

Now we are getting into the cheaper options, we need to make some sacrifices. This Panasonic is a great option but it will only play games in 4K / 60 FPS. The Xbox Series X games will still look amazing on this set regardless.

  • Available in 40, 50, 58, and 65-inch variations
  • 4K, HDR10+, HDMI 2.0, Dolby Vision / Atmos
  • Roughly 15ms of input latency
  • Prices range from £655 through to £1,099

Samsung Q60T QLED TV

This QLED 4K TV is a bit of a bargain, but again it's only got 60 FPS support. No biggie for the price.

  • Available in 43, 50, 55, 58, 65, 75, and 85-inch variations
  • 4K, HDR10, HDMI 2.0
  • Roughly 10ms of input latency
