When looking for a suitable TV that is good for gaming, there are a few things to keep in mind. The latest games are essentially made for 4K resolutions, so you’re going to need a 4K set, however, it’s good to note that the panels can differ from one to another quite drastically.
ULED, OLED or QLED TV are the technologies you’re going to look out for. These advanced panels use backlighting technology to make bright colours more vivid and blacks even darker, and in order to make gameplay and fast-moving images smoother, often have a high refresh-rate (written in hertz, or Hz) which is the number of times a TV refreshes the image.
