Best TVs for gamers

These TVs from Sony, Panasonic, LG and Samsung have a 1080p resolution, high contrast and 'Game' modes for fast response

We've put together a list of some of the best televisions from Sony, Panasonic, LG and Samsung you can buy if you are on the hunt for excellent image quality and a dedicated 'Game' mode.

Samsung Series 7 (UA55C7000)

Samsung's Series 7 (UA55C7000) is the best edge-lit LED television we've seen. It doesn't have the deep inky black levels of a high-end plasma television, but its colour reproduction is good and 2D video looks great. The UA55C7000's motion control handles sports and wildlife footage well, but some movies can seem slightly jittery when using default settings. 3D video playback is a novel inclusion that adds extra depth and immersion, but we'd wait a while before purchasing a television purely for 3D video. In short, don't purchase this TV for 3D -- purchase it because it's good at almost everything else.

MSI GT76

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

MSI PS63

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.
