Best gaming TV deals: big discounts on 120Hz TVs for PS5 and Xbox Series X

So, you've got a PS5 and/or Xbox Series X, have you? You lucky so and so. But now you're realising that your existing TV, very nice though it may be, isn't quite cutting the mustard and doesn't have all of the features necessary to take full advantage of your new console. Time for an upgrade.

Of course, having recently forked out for a next-gen games machine, you can't now afford to waste money. You want the best, but you also want it at the best price, and that's why you're hunting for the best gaming TV deals.

That's where we come in. We scour the web daily to find the best possible prices on the best kit there is, and now we're using that expertise to find the biggest deals on perfectly specced gaming TVs.

What are those specs that we're looking for? The big one is 4K@120Hz, which is new technology that's built into both the PS5 and Xbox Series X and makes games smoother and more responsive than ever before. It requires special panels, processing and connections, so is still the preserve of quite high-end TVs.

VRR (Variable Refresh Rate) is a big deal, too, as that smooths gameplay even further. ALLM (Auto Low Latency Mode) is also nice to have. PS5 doesn't currently support either of these features, but we know that VRR is definitely on the way and you've got to hope that ALLM follows. Xbox Series X already supports both.

Crucially, every TV below supports all of these features or will do soon, so you can buy knowing that every next next-gen gaming base is (or will be) covered. Unfortunately, that does mean you're looking at quite premium TVs, although the discounts make them far more affordable than you probably expect. Small TVs are out, though: we're not aware of TVs smaller than 48 inches that support all of the gaming features we've mentioned.

LG OLED48C1 48-inch OLED TV £1299 £1099 at Very (opens in new tab)
The C1 is the performance-per-pound champ of LG's 2021 OLED TV range, and this 48-inch version is just as good as its larger siblings. It's got every next-gen gaming spec you could possibly ask for and is more tempting than ever with this discount.

Samsung QE50QN90A 2021 Neo QLED TV £1799 £1199 at PRC Direct (opens in new tab)
Samsung's new, Mini LED-based Neo QLED TV is available as a relatively compact, 50-inch model – and it's seen massive discounts since launch. We've not tested it yet, but expect a very bright and punchy picture and a full house of next-gen gaming specs.

55-inch gaming TV deals

LG OLED55C1 2021 OLED TV £1699 £1200 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
The latest C-series OLED from LG is everything you'd expect – an all-round picture performer with every next-gen gaming feature you could hope for. It's got the catch-up apps that were missing from the CX, too. A brilliant TV, particularly at this price.

Sony XR-55A80J 2021 OLED TV £1899 £1299 at John Lewis (opens in new tab)
Sony's awesome A80J OLED TV launched at £1899, was down to £1699 when we reviewed it (and gave it 5 stars) and can now be bought for significantly less than that. VRR is currently missing but an update is promised before the end of 2021, and the A80J is already an absolutely brilliant TV that majors on authenticity.

Samsung QE55QN94A 55-inch QLED TV £1499 £1249 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
We gave the QN94A a five-star rating at £1499 so it's superb value at this new, extra-low price. It does without the QN95A's One Connect box and it therefore has just one HDMI 2.1 socket (rather than four) but the performance is every bit as brilliant and every gaming feature is covered.

65-inch gaming TV deals

LG OLED65C1 2021 OLED TV £2499 £1799 Amazon (opens in new tab)
The latest C-series OLED from LG is everything you'd expect – an all-round picture performer with every next-gen gaming feature you could hope for. It's got the catch-up apps that were missing from the CX, too. A brilliant TV, particularly at this price.

Sony XR-65X90J 65-inch TV £1799 £1149 at John Lewis (save £650) (opens in new tab)
This classy LCD/LED TV was already great value at its original price, so it's a real steal with this deal. The price on page is £1299, but My John Lewis members can get a further £150 off. Non-members can simply sign-up for free.

LG OLED65G1 2021 Evo OLED TV £2999 £2199 at John Lewis (opens in new tab)
The G1 is LG's new Evo OLED, which takes the excellent performance and gaming feature set of the C1 (above) and adds even more punch to images. It's got a lovely design that's specifically for wall-mounting, too (you'll need to budget extra for feet or a stand if it's not going on the wall).

Samsung QE65QN95A 2021 QLED TV £2999 £2399 at John Lewis (opens in new tab)
Samsung's 2021 flagship 4K 'Neo QLED' TV has already dropped massively in price. This is a superb television with a super-punchy mini LED backlight and a One Connect box with four HDMI 2.1 sockets that support every next-gen gaming feature going.

The 2021 version of LG's C-series TV has also now been discounted.

The price on page is £3099 but use code 'GDSAVE100' at checkout to get a further £100 off.
