This Cyber Monday Samsung TV deal is a great buy for PS5 owners

Samsung’s most affordable entry for next-gen gaming just got more affordable

So you’ve got yourself a brand new Xbox Series X or PlayStation 5 and want to get the most out of your new console? You’ll be needing a TV with HDMI 2.1 ports. The trouble is that such TVs tend to be on the pricey side, and you’re already £450 in the hole for your console, so likely want to save a bit of cash.
Well, good news: Samsung’s most affordable HDMI 2.1-toting set, the Q70T is now going cheap at Amazon. With an RRP of £1,099, the 55in Q70T is now available for just £789. You’ll want to act quickly if you want one – it’s been going in and out of stock all over the Black Friday weekend. Though if it’s sold out by the time you read this, at the time of writing it’s going for the same price at Ebuyer.

The TV is in demand for good reason. HDMI 2.1, for those who don’t know, opens the door to three features that are especially useful to next-gen console owners: 4K@120Hz, Auto Low-Latency Mode (ALLM) and Variable Refresh Rate (VRR). 
Combined, these theoretically allow 120fps frame rates with no screen tearing and low-input latency. I say theoretically because no next-gen games yet have the capacity to reach 120fps at a 4K resolution – to hit those heights, the resolution needs to be reduced. 
In any case, it doesn’t hurt to be prepared, and the TV has a bunch of other great features. For a start, it supports HDR10, HDR10+ and Hybrid-Log Gamma (HLG) meaning that supported content will look marvellously immersive. 
As a smart TV, it’s truly smart too, supporting Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa and Samsung’s own Bixby digital assistants. Built-in apps include Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Now TV, Disney Plus, BBC iPlayer, ITV Hub, All 4, My 5 and YouTube, so you’re unlikely to be short of things to watch when not gaming.
