The Best Gaming Monitors

PRODUCTS

OUR TOP PICKS

After researching over 100 gaming monitors and testing 13, we think the Asus ROG Swift PG279QZ is the best gaming monitor for people with an Nvidia graphics card and the Samsung CHG70 is the best for those with an AMD card. Both monitors have large, high-resolution screens, adaptive synchronization, and high refresh rates for smooth, fluid gameplay.

Samsung RU8000
We like the Samsung RU8000 LCD/LED 4K TV for gaming because, in addition to its very low input lag (which means less time between when something happens in the game and when you see it on your screen), it is one of only a handful of TVs to offer support for HDMI 2.1, which includes features that specifically benefit gaming. Automatic low latency mode (ALLM) allows the TV to automatically enable game mode when it’s paired with newer game consoles, so you spend less time futzing with menus and more time playing games
Hisense H9F
The Hisense H9F comes in 55- and 65-inch sizes, features full-array local dimming, and can do HDR highlights with over 1,200 nits of brightness. Unlike all the other TVs we tested for this guide, it has a 120 Hz panel. So films and TV shows both display without any judder, which means that panning shots in movies look much smoother. Priced almost identically to the TCL 6-Series, the H9F produces a superior image in most cases, but its Android TV interface is less responsive and user-friendly than the TCL’s Roku interfa
TCL 5-Series
If you want good gaming performance on a budget, the TCL 5-Series offers some of the same desirable gaming traits as our pricier picks, including low input lag and automatic low latency mode. With a Roku smart-TV interface for easy streaming, a high contrast ratio, and an accurate image in the preset Movie picture mode, the 5-Series also makes a great general-purpose TV (it’s our pick for the best 4K TV on a budget).
Vizio M-Series Quantum
The Vizio M-Series Quantum (models M657-G0, M557-G0, M507-G1, and M437-G0) is one of the only budget TVs to include both local dimming for improved contrast and quantum dots to produce the wider color gamut in Ultra HD movies. It had the best-looking SDR and HDR images of all the under-$500 50- and 55-inch 4K TVs we tested, but the local dimming is only moderately effective (compared with the higher-performance TVs in our Best LCD/LED TV guide) and works best in a completely dark room
Hisense H8G
The Hisense H8G is the updated version of the H8F that we tested for this guide in 2019. The new version has a much faster Android TV interface, which was one of the worst aspects of the prior version. It has a wider color gamut thanks to the inclusion of quantum dots in 2020 and more local dimming zones, though they made almost no impact at all in viewing or measuring test patterns. Hisense also fixed issues we had with HDR video last year, in which the TV would crush shadow details, but now HDR is a bit too bright
