A new gaming monitor will help you achieve the vivid picture quality that you’ve been looking for, but not everybody can afford to spend $10,000. LED and OLED TVs offer a cost-effective and convenient alternative for your PlayStation, XBox, and other gaming consoles.

Gaming monitors are different from TVs in that they have reduced input lag and more ports, and of course, they tend to cost more. But for the price-conscious gamer in the market for a large TV, Sony’s X900H 65” LED 4K Ultra HD Smart TV is the way to go.


Sony X900H 65-inch TV: 4K Ultra HD Smart LED TV

If you want to see all of your favorite content in rich, life-like contrast and vibrant color detail, the X900H has you covered. It features motion-clarity technology, HDR, Dolby Vision, Full Array LED for a more realistic color contrast, and Triluminos technology (powered by an X1 processor) for enhanced color precision when playing your favorite video games.

The X900H comes equipped with Bluetooth technology, four HDMI ports, thousands of apps, and X-Tended Dynamic Range, the latter of which adjusts brightness as necessary. And you can pair it with Alexa-enabled devices, Google Home, Apple Airplay, and other voice-controlled gadgets so that you can seamlessly stream music, launch video apps, and more from your Sony TV.

Designed with the environment in mind, the TV features pixel-level lighting control to help improve energy efficiency. There’s also a Power Saving Mode to help save energy by adjusting display brightness, and Display Mode, which helps save energy by turning the picture display off without the TV being in full standby mode (so that you can still enjoy audio). The X900H is available on Amazon, with free two-day shipping for Prime members. If you’re not already signed up, Amazon Prime costs just $12.99 a month (after a free 30-day trial). The membership includes free access to Prime Video, which houses thousands of TV shows and movies that you can watch on your new Sony TV.

Provided you’re on an even tighter budget, the Sony 65” X750H is an even cheaper option for console gaming, and it has some of the same features such as 4K and X1 processor, and advanced algorithms to help cut back on noise, and enhance details.

Now that you’re all caught up on the best 65” TV for console gaming, you may want to check out our picks for the best gifts for gamers, and best gamer headsets.
