(Pocket-lint) - The PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S have been out for a little while now, not that getting hold of one is getting any easier than it was at launch. Still, if you're the proud owner of a new console, or know your TV is a little old, you might want to upgrade your display to go with it. 

But which TV should you go for? The new consoles bring a bunch of interesting new (and less new) features to the table that depend on your TV, from HDR to Ultra HD 4K resolutions and high refresh-rates. Some of these depend on your hardware, so picking the right TV can be a minefield.

We've selected some of the very best options, though, to help guide you to a stellar gaming experience for years to come. 

Our pick of the best Ultra HD TVs for PS5 and Xbox

LG CX series

LG's CX line of TVs comes in a few sizes, and is quite simply the standout choice of basically everyone in the industry when it comes to next-gen gaming, with good reason. 

It's one of the few TVs that brings all the bells and whistles that Sony and Microsoft have been mentioning, including high-refresh rates, HDMI 2.1, HDR and stunning OLED picture quality. That said, you'll pay for it all - these are mighty pricey sets, and their prices really haven't come down much at all since release. 

This is one of very few widely available TVs out there that ticks every box, so jump on it if it fits your budget!

Sony Bravia KD-XH9005

You'd hope that Sony would be able to make a TV that can maximise the power of the PS5, and it's popped up with the KD55XH9005 to show what it can do.

It's a gorgeous TV, that's for sure, an LED panel that's still got great blacks and crystal-sharp 4K to boot, with HDMI 2.1 on board. However, the TV will only be able to handle faster refresh rates once an incoming software update lands, which is something to bear in mind if that's a high priority for you.

Samsung QEQ90T

Samsung's right up there with the best when it comes to picture quality, its QLED tech making for gorgeous detail and great colour, with impressive blacks that perhaps don't quite match an OLED. 

Still, the Q90T is a beauty that caters to high refresh rates and embraces HDMI 2.1, making for a brilliant package, albeit one that's still pretty expensive. Samsung's Tizen OS is also nice and simple to use, and its game mode is a reliable automated little wonder. It all adds up to a superb option.

Samsung TU8500

You don't normally associate Samsung with lower-cost options, and it's fair to say this is still on the pricier end of the whole market, but if you want a TV that's got some next-gen features without breaking the bank completely, it's a good choice. 

You're getting Samsung's Crystal UHD display rather than QLED, which is the big cost-saver, but the picture is still superb and 4K games look excellent. You also miss out on 120Hz compatibility, but we genuinely think that many people won't mind that at all when they can have 60FPS gaming that looks this good.

Samsung Q950TS

Returning to the other end of the affordability spectrum, if you really want to feel like you're living in the future you could opt for an 8K TV - the next-gen consoles can output at that level technically, although we don't think you'll see many games that actually do so. 

This mammoth Samsung set is still great for 4K content, though, and upscales really nicely to make for crisp and gorgeous images. It'll cost you an arm and a leg, but 8K will probably roll out to be normal eventually, so you could choose to jump aboard now, if you like.
