What Qualities Should I look for when I buy an LED TV for Video Gaming?

By Donna

Most gamers take their games very seriously, and when they are playing on a TV, they take that seriously as well.  If you are in the market for a new television for your gaming system, consider what you need to look for in a gaming TV before heading out to buy one. You do not want to buy just any old thing.

Buy an HD TV

If you are a serious gamer, you want serious graphics. You want the game to really pop, after all, you did spend a ton of money on it. Do not even consider buying a TV without HD. As long as you are getting a new TV, make it one that will show all the details of your game. I am sure I do not have to tell you this, but just in case you did not know, here is the scoop – be sure your TV has HDMI connectivity in addition to 1080p output or you will be sorry. Do not say I did not warn you. You cannot hook up your game without that.  You could also use headphones from the audio out on your TV, so do not forget to invest in a good pair of headphones.

Consider an LED TV 

LED TVs offer the best graphics for your money. The best LED TV has a clear picture, the colors are sharp and it just looks the best. Be sure the TV does not have any ghosts, which are images behind images. You usually will not find that on a good LED TV, but just make sure, otherwise you'll be disappointed, and you don't want that. Also, make sure it has a good contrast between black and white, for clear, crisp color. Look for a 720p high definition picture with good color.

Think About Brand Names 

We all know certain brand names are better than others are. Do not get sucked into a good price on a cheap TV with a brand name you never heard of. Maybe your father only bought a certain brand name (I know mine did), or maybe you had good luck with a certain brand name in the past. Stick with what you consider to be a good brand name for the best LED TV or even ask your friend's father, if you do not trust your own. 

Consider Buying a 3D TV 

What could be better for gaming than a 3D TV? Be the first one in your circle of friends to get a 3D TV. We all know 3D is going to be here in gangbusters – it is just in the baby stages now, but wait until it warms up. Get the 3D TV now and impress your friends and family. Be the trailblazer and leave everyone else in your dust. 

The Bigger - The Better 

Let us face it – a BIG screen is much better to play games on than a small screen. When you buy an LED TV, get the biggest one that you can afford. A 22” LED TV is a good size for your bedroom, but a 32” LED TV, or even larger, is a better idea for a large living room. You will enjoy it much more and will be glad you did. Just do not sit too close to the TV, or you will ruin your eyes. Your mother was not kidding. 

Smart LED TV 

It is important to make sure your TV has good connectivity, if you're going to be gaming on it. You may even want to buy a Smart LED TV, since they usually have plenty of connectivity options for you to choose from. 


  1. This is very useful blog i must say this . Try using Good LED TV for better experience.

  2. ... Smart tv isn't that important to worry about if all you do is play games. Consoles already have many apps and just about the same apps as a smart tv does. All you need is wifi. So you minus well call your gaming console a smart console.. Also, 3D television isn't all that great. They will seriously mess your eyes up if it's used to much, and what's the point of buying something if you shouldn't use it a lot.

    Plasma tv's are the best for gaming because the have no motion blur rather than led or LCDs.

    I'd say stick to Samsung or Panasonic for gaming...they have the best technology for dealing with laggy tv's. And gamers hate lag/motion blur.
