Best Black Friday gaming TV deals 2020: get a 120Hz TV for less

So, you managed to get hold of a PS5 or Xbox Series X, did you? You lucky so and so. But now you’re realising that your existing TV, very nice though it may be, isn’t quite cutting the mustard and doesn’t have all of the features necessary to take full advantage of your new console. Time for an upgrade.

Of course, having just forked out for a next-gen games machine, you can’t now afford to waste money. You want the best, but you also want it at the best price, and that’s why you’re hunting for the best Black Friday gaming TV deals.

That’s where we come in. We scour the web daily to find the best possible prices on the best kit there is, and now we’re using that expertise to find the biggest deals on perfectly specced gaming TVs.

What are those specs that we’re looking for? The big one is 4K@120Hz, which is new technology that’s built into both the PS5 and Xbox Series X and makes games smoother and more responsive than ever before. It requires special panels, processing and connections, so is still very rare.

VRR (Variable Refresh Rate) is a big deal, too, as that smooths gameplay even further. ALLM (Auto Low Latency Mode) is also nice to have. PS5 doesn’t currently support either of these features, but we know that VRR is definitely on the way and you’ve got to hope that ALLM follows. Xbox Series X already supports both.

Crucially, every TV below supports all of these features, so you can buy knowing that every next next-gen gaming base is covered. Unfortunately, that does mean you’re looking at quite premium TVs, although the discounts make them more affordable than you probably expect. Small TVs are out, though: we’re only aware of one TV under 55 inches that supports all of the gaming features we’ve mentioned.

And if you’re wondering why this is a three-horse race featuring just LG, Samsung and Sony, it’s because they’ve fully embraced gaming and there rivals have not. At least not yet.
