When it comes to finding the best monitor for PS5, there are a ton of options, with many, many more on the way.
The PS5 is almost two years old now and upon release, the options for monitors were fairly slim. Many opted for 60hz, 4K displays with low response times, until they could get their hands on the anticipated HDMI 2.1 monitors... which are now becoming more abundant.
That being said, people opt for a PS5 in order to experience different types of gaming. Many who use it for reflex-based shooters may go for lower resolution and higher refresh rates, while others who want to experience next-gen graphics to the fullest may lean towards the larger, 4K displays.
We've included a range of monitors for PS5 that are tailored to all budgets and uses, from impressive TV-like displays like the Gigabyte AORUS FV43U to monitors designed for more competitive gaming, like the ASUS TUF Gaming VG28UQL1A. With support now included for 1440p monitors, this opens you up to an even wider array of choices.
What we haven't included is any QHD monitors, any of the best (and rare) 8K monitors, or some of the best ultrawide options, and it is unclear whether it will ever fully support ultrawide and when the PS5 will support 8K.
Here are just some of our choices for the best monitors for PS5, plus, check out our guide to helping you find the right one at the end of our list, with monitors that are heading our way that we think, are worth keeping an eye out for.
Let's dive in.

Best PS5 Monitor HDMI 2.1 - Gigabyte AORUS FC43U
The Gigabyte AORUS FV43U 43 Inch HDMI 2.1 Monitor is a bit of a beast on paper and boasts some impressive specs that make it a strong consideration for pairing with your PS5.
HDMI 2.1 monitors are still somewhat new to the scene and therefore can tip the scales a little when it comes to price, however, monitors like these are tailor-made for gaming, so they can be worth the premium.
This monitor supports 4K at 120Hz, alongside 10-bit Colour, 97% DCI-P3 and HDR1000 which will help you to get the most you can out of the console. To put that into perspective, many of the best gaming monitors can only offer Display HDR 400, so expect stunning visuals on this display.

Design-speaking, it's a futuristic statement piece if we ever saw one and whether you choose to go with the built-in stand or use one of the best monitor arms you can find, we think this display will look seriously epic.
What type of gamers is this for though? We'd see anyone playing more cinematic games like Horizon Forbidden West or God of War Ragnarök. For competitive gamers, you'll want to go for a smaller screen... if you want to win that is!
If you're after an OLED variation of this (that's even bigger), check out the Gigabyte AORUS FO48U too.
Or if you're after an even larger display, you may want to check out the Gigabyte S55U which boasts a huge 54.6-inch screen!
Best PS5 Monitor HDMI 2.1 28"- ASUS TUF Gaming VG28UQL1A
If you're wanting the power of HDMI 2.1 for your PS5 but on a smaller panel, then the ASUS TUF Gaming VG28UQL1A should have you covered.
What you'll find here firstly is a 4K display with a 144Hz refresh rate that should offer up some smooth gameplay. There's also support for Nvidia G-Sync and AMD Freesync Premium to reduce the chances of screen tearing.
It's got an expected response time of 1ms, which should ensure that you won't get any ghosting, especially useful considering it's an HDMI 2.1 monitor and therefore capable of running FPS games in the highest available settings.
The ASUS TUF Gaming VG28UQL1A's 28-inch screen size is practically ideal for most users, even competitive gamers. We actually think it's one of the best monitors for Warzone and any other reflex-based shooter.
Best PS5 Monitor Acer - Acer Nitro XV282K
Another excellent choice for PS5 is the Acer Nitro XV282K.
This display features multiple HDMI 2.1 ports, allowing you to play games on your PS5 in 4K at 120fps.

This monitor also boasts high brightness and contrast thanks to VESA-certified DisplayHDR 400.
The Acer Nitro XV282K is a solid choice if you ask us!
Best Budget PS5 Monitor - BenQ Zowie XL2411K 24 Inch
The BenQ ZOWIE XL2411K gaming monitor is a regular feature on many of our product selections and with good reason.
The trade-off may be lower resolution, but this is compatible with PS5 at 120hz and is a significant upgrade from the previous model in the design department.
This BenQ monitor could be a great shout if you find yourself playing mostly first-person shooters online on your PS5, and don't really need to shell out on an HDMI 2.1 display.
In turn, this makes it one of the best monitors for competitive gaming given that smaller panel and 1080p resolution which could be considered a sweet spot for FPS games, as well as one of the best BenQ monitors full-stop.
For an HDMI 2.1 upgrade, check out our review of the BenQ EX321OU here.
Best Premium PS5 Monitor - ASUS CG32UQ, 32 Inch 4K
If you're looking for a premium monitor for PS5, then the ASUS CG32UQ could be up your street and can be found for generally under £750.
As expected, many of the standard tropes of a 4K monitor are here, but there are more than a few added extras which justify its weightier price tag.
First off, this ASUS monitor features ambient lighting (Halo Sync), which not only looks brilliant when gaming, but also helps to reduce glare and eye strain.
Read More: Best PS5 Controller
It also boasts impressive HDR, with DCI-P3 95% professional colour gamut... which in other words means that images will be vibrant and the blacks deep.
As with most 4K HDMI 2.0 monitors you'll be capped at 60hz if you're playing on PS5, but when combined with the above it should look fantastic.
Best PS5 Monitor 4K Mid-Range - AOC U28G2AE 28 Inch Gaming Monitor
This AOC 4K monitor is a versatile monitor that boasts impressive brightness, colour, and resolution, making it worth considering if you're after something for a smaller setup and want to keep costs lower.
It has a 60hz refresh rate, which is quite standard when paired with a 4K resolution, making it a good call for those who are more into the fine details than blazingly fast gameplay, especially given that the PS5 can support native 4K output.
Read More: Are Gaming Monitors worth it?
It's also got a quick 1ms response time, something that you may not find on larger screens at the same resolution.
And finally, thanks to its IPS panel, the viewing angles are fantastic and the colour really pops.
The only thing lacking here is HDR, but at this price range that is to be expected.
You'll find the AOC U28G2AE hovering anywhere under £400, but keep an eye out as we've seen it feature in the sales!
Great Alternative: AOC U2879VF - 28 Inch 4K UHD Monitor
Best PS5 Monitor VA Small - AOC C24G2AE 24 inch
If you're after brightness, crispness and high contrast, then heading for a monitor like this AOC C24G2AE 24 inch could be worth your time.
VA monitors excel in contrast ratio, which can add some impressive depth to blacks and also help when playing in rooms that are on the brighter side.
Read More: Best PS5 Headsets
This AOC 24" monitor is FHD and comes with an impressive 165hz refresh rate and 1ms response time. Combine this with some fast-paced competitive games which allow 120fps, and you could have a winning formula, especially given the PS5 supports 1080p output at 120Hz.
Best PS5 Monitor 1080p 27 Inch - AOC 27" Curved VA LED FHD
The AOC C27G1 27" Curved monitor is a pretty affordable, classy-looking monitor for those looking for higher refresh rates and a larger screen.
You're not going to be getting 4K resolution or 1440p here, but what you are getting is a good monitor for competitive play and also one that looks the part with your gaming setup.
Read More: Does PS5 Support 144Hz?
Remember, that at this screen size, 1080p actually looks very good, and for competitive games, it's more about winning than admiring the detail on your enemy's uniform...
It's even got a curved screen, which takes the edge off the quite large screen size and adds another level of immersion to your play.
You're typically looking at under £260 for this AOC monitor... not too bad if you ask us.
Best Budget 4K Monitor For PS5 - Samsung U32J59
If you're looking to play games on your PS5 in stunning 4K but don't want to break the bank, the Samsung U32J59 could be the choice for you.

Not only should this monitor look excellent, but it also provides you with a solid 60hz refresh rate, AMD FreeSync, and a dedicated Game Mode.
Plus, despite all of this, the Samsung U32J59 can usually be found for under £350, which we think gives you some serious bang for your buck.
Best Premium 1440p Monitor For PS5 - ASUS TUF Gaming VG27AQL1A
A great budget option for the recently supported 1440p resolution is the ASUS TUF Gaming VG27AQL1A. A beautiful native contrast offers fantastic illumination in dark environments, especially great for long gaming sessions, and a staggering ELMB 1ms response time will allow you to be right in the heart of the action.
An impressive 170Hz refresh rate will more than cover the 120Hz 1440p that the PS5 can utilise, and allows for good compatibility if you are intending to use this monitor for both PS5 and PC gaming. Robust connectivity featuring HDMI 2.0 ports means you are able to seamlessly transition between platforms.

NVIDIA G-SYNC will allow you to customise your refresh rates, allowing for crack-free gameplay and low latency. The smaller screen size will help out with visual focus, making the ASUS TUF Gaming VG27AQL1A a great choice for competitive gamers in genres such as FPS.
An ergonomic stand features tilt, swivel, height and pivot adjustability, so you can freely customise the monitor's position to your liking.

For gamers who also want to utilise this on PC, you'll be pleased to find that there's also support for 4K at 240Hz, which is a world first, at least for an officially-released monitor, as TCL unveiled a 4K 240Hz prototype back in November 2021.
Most pertinently though, the panel that this monitor uses is rather impressive, given it features a Quantum Mini LED backlight with 1196 dimming zones.
Read More: Are gaming monitors good for work?
This should allow for 2000 nits of total brightness and some rather sharp images, especially with a 1,000,000: 1 contrast ratio.
This should also help to make this Samsung offering one of the best curved monitors for gaming when it releases fully. Alongside this 240Hz version, Samsung is also releasing it with a 165Hz refresh rate, but with an otherwise identical spec sheet.

ASUS ROG OLED PG42UQ
As for upcoming monitors, one we're certainly excited about is the ASUS ROG OLED PG42UQ.

A 0.5 millisecond response time also ensures there should be practically no latency between any inputs and what happens on-screen, and therefore this should also be a top-notch display for pro gamers to check out, too.
The new monitor is currently available to pre-order in the UK for £1,399.

Frequently Asked Questions About PS5 Monitors
Here, we'll do our best to answer those questions which crop up time and time again. Here's everything you need to know before you make your selection.
What kind of monitor is best for PS5?
If we had to throw our opinion into the mix, we'd say an HDMI 2.1 monitor or something capable of allowing you to play select titles at 120hz and 4K.
You can get these for under $1000 in some cases, if you don't mind the display being smaller, but they will give you monitor-standard low latency which we think has the edge over even the best TVs for PS5.
Read More: Do you need HDMI 2.1 for 120Hz gaming?
The alternative would probably be a 4K, 60hz display, but we'd recommend making sure it features a low response time.
For 1080p, head for a 120hz refresh rate and above, and try to grab yourself an IPS display to make the most out of colour and viewing angles.
It may sound obvious, but for PS5 you'll want to ensure you get a gaming monitor, as there are big differences between regular and gaming monitors when it comes to latency, response times, and refresh rates.
Should I get a 144hz monitor for PS5?
While the PS5 doesn't support 144hz, it will still work on a monitor which has this refresh rate.
You're essentially getting more Hz than you actually need, but if you have a PC and want to connect it via the DisplayPort, a 144hz monitor gives you that option. Being able to facilitate multiple systems is not something to be scoffed at, but equally it will come down to what platform you choose to game on.
Read More: Should I buy a PS5 or a gaming PC?
It is a good decision either way, and depending on your budget you should call it as you see it!
Should I buy a monitor for PS5?
There's a debate about whether to buy a TV over a monitor, but really it comes down to what other usages you want out of your chosen device.
For TVs, they're great in living rooms for movie nights and streaming. Monitors can be doubled up as productivity setups, creating hybrid gaming/ workspaces.
Generally speaking, if you're after lower input lag a monitor is the way to go, but this is only really important for fast-paced gaming.
If you're a fan of story-driven, slower-paced experiences, then a good 120hz TV should do you fine.
Are gaming monitors good for PS5?
We'd say they are, especially as gaming monitors are now commonly used with consoles, with many tailored to them specifically.
Read More: Are gaming monitors worth it?
As we've mentioned, gaming monitors have lower input lag, so if you want a more responsive experience and have something that is optimally sized for game genres such as first-person shooters, then you'll want to go for one.
You don't need one, but it is recommended to get the maximum out of the console, however, they can come at quite a steep price tag.
Do you need an HDMI 2.1 monitor for PS5?
A good alternative could be going for one of the best TVs for PS5, which should offer 120Hz gaming at 4K, but you'll find that they actually come in at around the same cost, and they can offer bigger screens for the same money as an HDMI 2.1 monitor.
Is 1440p equal to 4K?
It's not, unfortunately, so if you've come across any monitors you're considering for PS5 that are 1440p we'd say look at either 1080p or 4K displays to match the PS5's output.
If you are set on a 1440p display, you can check out our top picks. and if instead, you want more info on whether 1080p or 1440p is best for your display, then we've got a handy guide on it right here.
Is it worth getting a 1440p monitor for PS5?
With the PS5 now supporting 1440p, it's now possible to choose between your cheaper 2k monitor options, or scale up to a fully UHD 4k resolution. Seen as the middle option between 1080p and 4k, a 1440p monitor can be a great choice if you are looking to upscale your set-up but don't want to break the bank on a 4k.
