Inexpensive and ready for the next gen

When, if not on Black Friday, is it worth aiming for a 4K TV that supports all the functions of PS5 and Xbox Series S / X? GIGA has selected two gaming TVs for you that offer you an affordable entry into the next-gen world. The offers are currently still valid, even after Black Friday is over.

Ingenious QLED TV from Samsung at a great price

The Samsung GQ55Q82T starts off. The 4K television with a screen diagonal of a full 55 inches has only been available in stores for a few days, as MediaMarkt is already offering radically reduced prices as part of Black Friday Week. Just 798.36 euros are due for the new QLED TV from Samsung – a real bargain if you consider what is in the TV. If you have the television delivered straight to your home, you will have to pay an additional 29.90 euros. But even that doesn't make the offer any less attractive.

Because despite the low price the Samsung GQ55Q82T supports 4K resolution at up to 120 frames per second. Features such as VRR (Variable Refresh Rate) and ALLM (Auto Low Latency Mode) can also be used via the built-in HDMI 2.1 connection – both functions that are offered by both the PS5 and Xbox Series S / X.

Also a rarity in this price range the particularly bright and colorful QLED panelwhich, thanks to 10-bit support, also covers the HDR standards HDR10, HDR10 + and HLG. A television that really has it all and offers the perfect balance of price and performance for every console player.

For tough bargain hunters: Sony televisions are even cheaper

The Sony KD-55XH9005 is another 50 euros cheaper, and the one at Saturn at a budget price of 749.62 euros on sale is. The nice thing about the Sony TV: In contrast to the Samsung model, there are no additional shipping costs. In addition, buyers of the Sony 4K TV receive 25 euros credit for the PlayStation Store, when you register your TV with Sony after purchasing it.

Basically, the Sony KD-55XH9005 also supports all important functions of the PS5 and Xbox Series S / X, the biggest difference between the two televisions is the built-in panel. While a bright QLED panel is used in the Samsung model, Sony uses a classic LC display. In terms of brightness and radiance, Samsung has the lead here, but it also costs a little more. But the Sony KD-55XH9005 offers the better full array local dimming, which is particularly noticeable when displaying rather dark image content.

You should definitely consider these points when looking for a new TV:

The bottom line is that both televisions offer an extremely inexpensive entry into the world of PS5 and Xbox Series S / X, as they perfectly support all functions of the new consoles. If you still want to save some money, take the Sony KD-55XH9005, but the Samsung GQ55Q82T offers better image quality thanks to the QLED panel. However, you shouldn't think twice, because at such prices both models should be out of stock again soon!
