But it is the quick reaction time that makes the television a great buy for even professional gamers.
The Samsung JS9000 SUHD series televisions deliver excellent results in the Gaming Mode. They are equipped with 4K technology, which makes them future-proof. So, you don’t have to worry about the TV becoming obsolete any time soon. Samsung JS9000 has remarkable picture production capabilities. The TVs have a very wide color gamut, which allows the final pictures to be rich, brilliant, and vibrant.

If you want a good quality TV, with all the bells and whistles like 4K resolution, superb audio quality, impressive picture quality, powerful brand name, and a decent price to go with it, then you should pick Sony 810C, without another thought. Granted, it doesn’t come with a lot of fancy options that are usually found in pricier 4K TVs, but it does best with what it has. It has a low input lag of 35.7ms, and a response time of 12.1ms. It even has a refresh rate of 120Hz. Together, these features combine to form a truly breathtaking gaming experience at an affordable price. The picture quality is excellent, the motion handling is noteworthy, and the sound quality is extraordinary. There is some loss of color saturation when viewed from side angles, but that has no effect on your gaming experience, unless there are multiple players.
The LG UH8500 is an all-rounder of a television. It is an excellent living room entertainment system for the entire family, and also a great gaming accessory. Its low input lag of 31.4ms makes it a worthy candidate for playing all types of games on PS4. Then, there is the wide viewing angle, which makes it suitable for watching from the sides as well without having to compromise on the color or the picture quality.

The Samsung KS9000 is based on the LED screen technology. Although it does not produce as outstanding a picture quality as OLED, it has a far superior brightness level. Even in the brightest of living rooms, the pictures on the screen will be visible just fine. The 4K UHD TV is also equipped with HDR, which changes the dynamics of picture quality for LED TVs. Equipped with HDR and 4K technology, this TV is designed for the future. But, what makes is great for gaming is its low input lag, and low reflecting screen. The screen does not reflect light, which is good for playing hours at an end, without tiring the eyes. There is some deterioration in the quality of the pictures when viewed from side angles, which constrains the space for enjoying the game in front of the TV.
Vizio D Series 4K 2016
Vizio has recently come up with a truly inspiring set of televisions for its customers. They are affordably priced, despite featuring the latest technology and features. The Vizio D Series 4K 2016 is testimony to this philosophy of Vizio. Its design can only be described as uninspiring, but the TV is all about performance. So, the former can be ignored. The 4K UHD TV upscales the 1080p video output from your PS4 systematically to render it neatly on the screen. There is no loss of quality. Thanks to the revolutionary low input lag of 13.5ms, this TV can handle the most intense and the fastest games around, be it sports or live action games. However, there is significant loss in picture quality when viewed from the sides. But, at the price tag that it comes with, Vizio D Series 4K 2016 is a steal.
