Best TV for PS5

Hi,
Having read through some of the threads about what to get for my sons PS5 I think I've correctly narrowed it down within our budget range to these 2 below:-
Sony BRAVIA KD49XH8505BU
LG 49NANO866NA


Assuming/hoping I'm not miles off the mark, can anyone advise if there are any significant benefits of one over the other please?

Thank you in advance for any help

Have you seen: My best TVs for next gen gaming 2020-21 ?

I'd suggest trying to stretch to the LG 48CX OLED or Sony 49XG9505.

If you have a more limited budget you are probably best considering the Hisense U7Q instead since it can get brighter than both the models you have picked out, which to most people is more important than HDMI VRR or 120hz.

Thank you, I'll check out your thread.
On the 120hz he's convinced he needs it and HDMI 2.1, where as I haven't a clue :)

If 120hz and HDMI 2.1 is a priority above all else go for the Nano86. Just be sure to game in SDR only, not HDR.
Thank you for your help, I got him to read your advice and look through your thread and we're going for the Oled CX model.
Could you help me with one other thing please?
The 48" LG Oled48CX5LC is £1475 but the LG 55" Oled55CX5LB is £1299. I compared them on the LG website and they appear to be the same spec' but it doesn't make sense that the 55 would be cheaper.
What am I missing?

Supply and demand?
Or is the 48” C model newer? However, JL suggests they are both 2020 models but that the 55 has been discounted already (55s tend to get bigger discounts at Black Friday as they are sold more)

I did wonder if it was supply and demand, and checking LG website showed both as 2020 models. Wasn't sure if the LB or LC had any bearing :)

I have gone for the Sony XH90 (55 inch model). I really wanted the LG CX and I could afford it but this TV will be primarily used for gaming and my son has clcked almost 800 hours over the last year on Call of Duty and plays a lot of Fortnite, with the HUD being quite static for those games which increases the chance of Burn-In, I decided to go for the Sony.

The LG is a better TV and if you are not going to be playing a lot of hours on games with huds like COD then go for it.

Hi - What are issues/limitations of the HDR mode on the Nano86 TV?

Thanks :)
They aren't specific to the Nano86, but any lower end LCD TV. No decent local dimming and poor peak brightness.
