This Incredible 4K TV Is Heavily Discounted And Ready For PS5 And Xbox Series X

The 75-inch TCL 8 Series 4K TV boasts a 120Hz refresh rate, which is something the PS5 and Xbox Series X both support.

18 Comments

The TCL 8 Series is one of the best 4K TVs you can buy, and right now, you can snag it for an incredible price. The 75-inch TCL 4K TV is only $1,800, down from its regular price of $3,000. Not only does it have a fantastic picture, it also boasts a number of key features that make it perfect for the upcoming PS5 and Xbox Series X. The 4K TV comes with free shipping and can arrive as early as August 5 if you order today.

This TCL 4K TV features a 120Hz refresh rate, which means it's capable of taking full advantage of the PS5 and Xbox Series X. Both Sony and Microsoft have announced that the consoles will support 4K at 120Hz. It's unclear how many games will actually be able to hit 120 FPS at native 4K, but with developers being able to target lower resolutions to reach those high frame rates, you'll be ready for any situation.

As is the case with most 4K TVs, the TLC 8 Series boasts HDR support and smart features like streaming and voice control. HDR stands for high-dynamic range, which means you'll see brighter and more realistic colours. As for the TV's streaming services, you'll find Netflix, Prime Video, and Disney+ as well as Apple TV+ and Google Play.

If you're looking for another great display you can game on, then you'll be happy to hear that Microsoft has an excellent deal on an ultrawide monitor with a 144Hz refresh rate. The Lenovo Legion is currently $899, thanks to a $300 discount. The PS5 and Xbox Series X don't support ultrawide aspect ratios, but if you're a PC gamer, then there are a lot of great options to put this display through its paces.

I love my 2017 TCL 75" TV. Great for gaming. It's not as bright as the newer TCLs.

I have a 2019 65" downstairs which is brighter, but I get more Complements on the dimmer 75" TV. I'm sure it's not just the size because they're both pretty big.

Anyway, I'm holding out for the TCL 85" 8k sets. I expected them to be available by now and I'm kind of disappointed because I already had a buyer for my 75" for $500, but lost them because I couldn't upgrade yet.

Just not sure why anyone is excited about any 4K set by now, regardless of price when it's already last Gen. Hopefully, they'll have an update to PS5pro soon which supports 8K.

Forget that TV above that will just not be good enough for next gen consoles, it simply is not really made for gaming. This is a competent low budget .... ish range tv for the size. Also look in that line if need smaller sizes in the low to moderate budget ranges. 4k 120hz,

oh and buy quality input cables, not expensive, but quality performance ones. The two are not the same.

"Only" $1500, lol. As if regular people have that kind of money laying around.

Also, 4K TCL TV's are pieces of junk. I should know, because I used to own one. They have a thin background line that keeps scrolling upwards. I went through two different replacement TV's courtesy of TCL and even the replacements had the same problem. Never again will I buy a TCL TV.

Frankly, I have difficulty imagining the utility or necessity of a framerate higher than 60 FPS, given the limitations of human eyesight...although, to be fair, it was hard for me to imagine a significant improvement over 1080p until I got my new 4K TV.

@cylor: Undoubtedl, your 4k set has HDR. I used to walk thru Bbuy yawning at the 4k TVs compared to the 1080 sets. Then after a couple of years, they suddenly started catching my eye. Hmmm, why now? After researching, I realized that they had added HDR to the sets, now showing thousands more color variations than my 1080p TV. HDR is what made the 4K TVs pop! and worth buying, NOT the 4K.

If you don't need this size, I'd say use that same $1500 for an LG 55" OLED

Curved ultrawide is definitely the way to go for monitors.

got a samsung 4k 65 inch for 600 2 years ago...

Don't see how this is a major upgrade from what I already have.

I'ma wait. Ps5 and xbox serious x will be pricy at launch, hard to get at a decent price at launch, hard to get period I imagine because of the covid causing lower production than usual. Mostly likely hardware and software problems that need to be hashed out. And the game quality/numbers will be kind of crap at first too. RARE is it when a console launches with must haves galore. Usually a console will launch with like 1 must have game tops, or it launches with nothing worth while.

I say wait close to a year. Prolly find a good summer deal for a TV in 2021. Might also be the time to get a new console then. Just my opinion.

Also thanks gamespot for suggesting this but I bet you can get a better tv for cheaper in a year from now. Patience is often rewarded.

@goldenageplayer: I had the same experience with PS4. Decided to become an earlier adopter to support the brand against the "online only" Xbone intro.

But they had no game I liked until Diablo 3 came out like a year+ later. Then, they burned me again with the PS4pro launch. I did upgrade to the pro trying to speed up D3 loads but still had to add an SSD before I was satisfied. Not going down that road again. 20 Mos wait this time.

Not totally for sure but think these guys trying to sell this TV being misleading. Just like a new 8k tv with hdmi 2.1 can only run at 120hz in 4k. This tv can only run 120hz at 1080p and it does NOT have hdmi 2.1.

And since both the PS5 and Xboxx are 8k ready saying this tv takes full advantage of them is not correct either.

@gaeandilth: With a July download and update this TV is able to do HDMI 2.1 eARC but poorly. ' HDMI 2.1 eARC been added ...July 202'

As to its competent 4k at 60fps, well results may vary. This TV was not really designed for gaming, it will make your football, movie watching enjoyable and does a decent job at that.

IF I was to buy a good gaming TV that is future proof for new consoles.... I would not buy anything now. And wait till the consoles have come out and even a year after that. Right now prices on all electronics are high due to WW pandemic, and by holidays should be much better. 2020 model tvs are still releasing and the above TV is getting its stock reduced for new tech.

Also WTF, is gamestop becoming a close out site for over priced electronics or something, wish adblocker could get rid of these click bait articles.

@jenovaschilld: Yeah not going to buy atm would cost me over 3k to replace tv and receiver and that would be at the cheapest. But the real reason is there is not really any decent games that going to be capable of utilizing it for awhile anyway.
