Best Gaming Tvs 2019: Xbox, Playstation, Nintendo

Best Gaming Tvs 2019: Xbox, Playstation, Nintendo
Published by: forahobby on Monday, July 29, 2019

If youíre planning to amp your video gaming experience, itís worth investing in a bigger and brighter TV with deeper blacks for an immersive experience. However, finding the best gaming television at an affordable price is an uphill task though all gaming consoles are relatively equal.

Best Gaming Tvs 2019: Xbox, Playstation, Nintendo

Here are the top three best gaming TVs to pair with your Xbox One, Nintendo or PS4 headset.

1. Best Overall: LG OLED55E8PUA 65-Inch 4K TV

If you have a huge bank account balance, itís worth considering treating yourself to this 65-inch OLED TV. This 4K TV is among the most beautiful traditional-looking television sets on the market, offering better value than its predecessor, the LG W8. The TV is clear, with an ultra-skinny stand designed to appear like the picture is floating mid-air to make it easy to enjoy an immersive experience with games like God of War or Forza 7.

LGís Series 8 comes with an impressive Alpha 9 processor, making it HDR pictures brighter than any other OLED TVs this South Korean firm. Additionally, games appear more dynamic in HDR10 mode provided the Dynamic Tone mapping is switched on. Even better, the E8 doesnít dim the picture in HDR game mode, unlike the series 7.

2. Best High-End TV: Samsung QE65Q90R

If youíre looking for an android-based TV that can support mobile apps like Betway, the Samsung QE65Q90R is a product that ticks all the right boxes. Its QLED technology gives it a punchier and brighter look that its OLED competitors, though itís also naturally realistic and well-balanced.

The TVís Input lag is low, supporting both ALLM and VRR with various extra neat features for the game mode. That includes a black detail enhancer and a motion smoother. Itís essentially the most gaming-friendly television that money can buy, and itís excellent with all sorts of entertainment options too. However, the price tag can be hefty, so it helps to have a significant amount of cash at hand or consider trying your luck at Betway.

3. Best Under a Budget: TCL 55R617 55-Inch 4K TV

Though TCL isnít a popular name in the TV market, their latest 55-inch LED screen will appeal to anyone who loves a bargain. Retailing within the $500 range, no television in this price bracket delivers such a brilliant balance in price and performance. It comes with punchy overall brightness, winning contrast performance and decent blacks, easily holding the pace against expensive rivals like Sony, LG and Samsung.

Considering its low price, the TCL 55R617 is super impressive with full-array local dimming instead of inferior edge-lit backlighting. It also comes with convincing blacks, allowing it to be even more outstanding thanks to its wide colour gamut. Additionally, the panel has a supremely speedy input lag measuring 17.9 ms with the game mode enabled. That comes with Dolby Vision and HDR10, which is borderline ridiculous at its price range.

Recap

If you want the best gaming TV, there are all sorts of things to consider, but you canít overlook the above options. Youíll need a 4K TV thatís HDR enabled, but you can find one with as little as $400 so you donít need to worry if youíre under a budget. Nonetheless, itís worth considering either the Sony and LGís OLED range or Samsung QLED TVs for premium pictures.

Xbox One S in price decline: The cheap entry into the console world

Xbox One S in price decline: The cheap entry into the console world
Published by: forahobby on Thursday, July 25, 2019
Tagged: Gaming, Hardware, Xbox One,

The price of the Xbox One S has been around for some time in a never-ending downward spiral. It's high time that we took a look at the price development of Microsoft's low-cost home console as part of the price decline. GIGA clarifies who is worth buying the Xbox One S for.

Xbox One S in price decline: The cheap entry into the console world

Xbox One S: Microsoft's home console goes on sale

It can go so fast. For the market launch, Microsoft still wanted to have around 360 euros for the new Xbox One S, now the current best price of the home console at 169 euros - can be found on Ebay. Please note that the sold models are exhibitors and as interesting as the SugarHouse offer. According to the seller, the consoles are new, only the original packaging is no longer dewy.

If that is not enough, he has to take about 40 euros more into his hands right now. For 208.16 euros you get on Ebay a brand new device * sent directly to your home. But who takes a look at the price history of the console, will notice - that's even cheaper:

Xbox One S: Who is the purchase worth?

Playstation Vs. Xbox - sometimes you get the feeling that this conflict is as old as humanity itself. Ultimately, everyone has to decide for themselves. Sony and Microsoft offer different outstanding exclusive titles for their consoles. If you really want to play Halo or Forza , you can go to Xbox, fans of God of War or Uncharted would rather look for a deal for the PlayStation 4 .

Otherwise, it also plays an important role for many players, what a console their friends own - because cross-console crossplay is so far only possible in the fewest games. What the Xbox One S has in front of the Sony consoles: It can be used as a 4K Blu-ray player.

On the subject: Everyone wants Crossplay, it is not so easy - or is it?

If you've been thinking about buying an Xbox One S for a while, you should be patient. We expect that the Xbox One S could be drastically reduced soon again - a price of about 150 euros seems realistic. Last but not least, because Microsoft has announced at this year's E3 first information on the new Xbox Project Scarlett . After such an announcement usually fall the prices for the current console models.

Bargain hunters may be looking for additional peripherals to prepare for the console purchase: Replacement controllers and a few rechargeable batteries are a good place to start.
