This is the most affordable 120Hz 4K TV this Black Friday weekend for £699


Save £100 from John Lewis and also get earbuds for free!

When choosing a TV there’s all kinds of buzzwords and acronyms floating around that makes it difficult to consider which to go for. While the most expensive options will usually cover all the features you might want, if you’re on a budget and want to hone in on one feature that’s going to be important for next-gen gaming, then it’s going to be what refresh rates (Hz) your TV is capable of displaying. The latest generation of consoles are now capable of running games at 120fps, but for that you’ll need a TV that can output at 120Hz. If you’re in need of an upgrade this Black Friday, then your most affordable option is the LG 55NANO866PA, a 55-inch TV that’s down to just £699 from John Lewis.

This TV has four HDMI ports, which should be plenty if you’ve got multiple consoles and other devices, though most importantly two of these are HDMI 2.1 ports, which are required to run games in 120fps, supported by both PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S. After 4K was introduced last generation, 120fps is the next important leap for this new generation, as this is double the frame rate of what had been possible on previous consoles, making for an even smoother gaming experience.

Not all games support 120fps gaming so you may find there’s actually a small pool of compatible games right now. However, for action games like Nioh 2 and Devil May Cry 5 Special Edition, racing games like F1 2021 and WRC 9, and shooters like Fortnite, Call of Duty: Vanguard and Gears 5, this can feel game-changing, and gamers who prioritise performance over graphics will feel the difference. Even if you favourite games don’t support the feature, if you’re looking to future-proof your TV, then a 120Hz one is the way to go over splashing out on OLED.

That’s not to say you won’t get a crisp display with the 55NANO866PA, which is after all a 4K HDR TV. It also uses LG’s very own NanoCell technology, which the company is keeping a proprietary secret, but it can be just as bright as OLED without risk of burn-in while it also has an IPS LCD screen that allows for wide-viewing angles, so if you’ve got people gathered around for film night, everyone still gets the best picture regardless where they’re sitting.

That’s not all. While this TV is £100 from John Lewis, you can also get a pair of LG TONE Bluetooth wireless earbuds for free when you purchase this TV and enter promotional code LGHEADHPHONES, usually sold for £59.
