The era of 4K gaming has arrived, consoles are already in a tug-of- war to achieve the best 4K gaming quality. Microsoft recently at E3 2017 revealed a price for its most powerful console yet, Xbox One X in terms of hardware specs, and assured that this console is the true power of native 4K. But it mostly relies on the game we see, the developers are trying to push their games to stand on Ultra HD grounds. Sony on the other side had this feature on PS4 Pro that uses Checkerboard to reach 4K. Xbox One X also shares the same tech and dynamically adjusts the screen resolution to achieve the resolution. Anyhow it is not noticeable, what matter is to consider a decent big 4K TV/Monitor screen to enjoy immersive gaming.
The next big thing after having a console is to choose the right output screen, a TV that can simply reflect the 4K performance in real-time. So here we will try to consider a few models, which can fit on the 4K gaming platform and offer you a life-like graphic quality on Xbox One X. Our article targets the model under three categories, first is Budget 4K TV where we took a few models which are low on cost but big on features, next recommended where price matters less but the output is everything and finally the best ones which have no competition. If you had pre-ordered Xbox One X and hunting down a good 4K Ultra HD TV, check out the list below and do share your views in the comment section below.
Points to consider if you plan to buy any other model:
- Anyhow you will be spending a good amount for 4K, try to go for Smart TV, the inbuilt app’s, internet support, etc will offer you additional features.
Budget 4K HDR Gaming TV for Xbox One X: $500-$700:
It’s all about money in this part, where price with features matter at the same time. Xbox One X itself cost $500, so adding a TV under this budget will not be heavy on your pocket. There are lower budget models but we prefer to start from $500, going below that just like shooting an arrow in dark. The price range of $500 to $700 gives a nice stretch where we can add in some models with low/high features. You can expect a TV size of 55inch, 49inch, 43inch a 40inch under the price ratio.
TCL 55P607 55-Inch LED TV (2017 Model):
This is the first model we consider under the budget due to its feature. The model cost $649.99 on Amazon, but with long shipping time. It is a Smart–TV with streaming channel support via Roku TV. It offers a 4K Ultra HD picture with Dolby Vision HDR. The max refresh rate is 120Hz. This TV has some smart features like a simple Roku interface to operate, you can adjust the TV settings through a Smartphone App. The standard remote has a headphone jack that supports voice search and private listening. This model can play a decent role in offering you good Ultra HD output for games, though the settings and tweaks will require some effort that can be done easily on a mobile phone. Below are the connectivity options.
- 3x HDMI
- Headphone Jack
- Optical Audio Out

This model is good, but don’t expect much from it in terms of black uniformity. Otherwise, the model is pretty decent in giving a 4K HDR output. The TV lacks a good sound compared to above model. There is another model by Sony which is a bit costlier compared to the LG model. It has plus point over design, better picture quality and it has Android with Google Cast and Google Play Support.
