LG’s C8 OLED TV has received rave reviews, and with good reason. The TV delivers a fantastic sharp picture, superb colour reproduction and with input lag of around 21ms, you’re not going to suffer any drawbacks while playing your fast-paced action games.The C8 also weighs in with HDR10, Dolby Vision, HLG and Advanced HDR, giving you some future proofing, and also boasts Dolby Atmos sound and speakers that punch well above their weight. While this TV certainly isn’t the cheapest on the block, it’s definitely up there with the very best and we don’t hesitate to recommend it.

Best High-End 4K TV for Gaming Under £2,000

Panasonic has a good name which has been hard-earned and this TV shows why the company has come to be so well regarded. It delivers on all fronts, with superbly accurate pictures, great colours, powerful sound for its slim form factor and solid support for apps. You’ll find the latest 4K and HDR versions of Netflix, Amazon Video and YouTube, not to mention the full range of catch-up apps. The FZ952 supports HDR10, HDR10+ and the BBC and NHK’s HLG, which is the standard for HDR television broadcasting and streaming, and also boasts a great gaming mode which delivers a latency of around 21ms.

Best 4K TV Money Can Buy

Regarded by many experts as the very best TV available right now, Samsung’s Q9FN provides everything you could ever need to immerse yourself in your gaming world. The TV boasts a tremendous range of brightness, colours and deep blacks, supports HDR10, HLG and HDR10+ and weighs in with input lag of around 15.5ms, making it a perfect choice for gaming. In terms of its audio performance, the Samsung Q9FN also impresses with speakers ample enough to allow you to enjoy your favourite games without immediately lashing out more hard-earned money on speakers or a soundbar – which is no mean feat.

Best Mid-Priced 4K TV for Picture Quality

Our first Sony pick is a stormer. The Bravia XF900 performs astonishingly well for its price-point, delivering excellent 4K performance across the board and Sony’s Triluminos colour management system makes for great colour reproduction. The television supports HDR10 and HLG and also delivers on the audio front, with solid speakers and support for Dolby Digital, Dolby Plus and Dolby Digital Plus as well as DTS digital surround. Latency sits at around 24.1ms running 4K at 60Hz and drops to 12.9ms at 1080P at 120Hz, so if you get capped in your game, don’t blame Sony!

Quality 4K TV for Under £730

As the price drops, so often the performance follows, but Samsung’s NU8000 manages to deliver solid performance despite being a quarter of the price of some of our other choices. The TV offers up accurate colour reproduction, excellent sharpness and noise reduction and also has impressively low input lag, with a measurement of around 14.1ms, making it a fantastic choice for a frenetic gaming session. The NU8000 supports HDR10, HLG and Samsung’s own HDR10+ standard, so it should hold its own as time passes. In terms of audio, the TV’s speakers perform pretty well, though you’ll likely want to reach for the soundbar sooner rather than later.

Another Affordable 4K TV for Gaming

Another great performer with a more manageable price-tag. The LG OLED 55B7V is capable of delivering vibrant colours, deep blacks and excellent sharpness, in addition to increased brightness which positively impacts its HDR performance, which is very good for the money. Speaking of HDR, the 55B7V boasts support for HDR10, HLG, Technicolor’s Advanced HDR and Dolby Vision, making it as close to future-proof as you’re likely to get right now. If you switch the set to gaming mode you’ll also get a latency of around 21ms for both 4K HDR and 1080P, which is a solid score for a TV at this price point. The TV’s smart features come courtesy of WebOS, which has proven its worth as a TV OS time and again, and you’ll get dedicated Netflix and Amazon buttons on the remote.

A 4K TV for Gaming Under £500

The TCL 55DP608 is easily the cheapest TV in our selection, coming in at under £500. The set provides support for HDR10 with performance which is surprisingly good for this price point. The TV’s audio performance is, again, much better than you’d expect to get at this price with 8-watt speakers that are easily capable of filling all but the largest of living (or gaming) rooms. To add to this TV’s considerable charm, it’s input lag sits at around 14.9ms at 4K/60Hz + HDR, so it will keep up with your button mashing without any trouble, and given the device comes courtesy of streaming maestros Roku, it’s smart features are excellent. Roku’s operating system takes care of everything as you would expect. Put simply, for the money, this TV is an absolute banger.
