    TV or Monitor for PS4?

    Hey Guys. I hope I'm in the right place.

    As I have the PS4 on pre order, i'm looking into getting a new tv/Monitor. I have had my Samsung TV (22" 720p) for a long time now. I just have a few questions. Considering i don't really watch tv in my bedroom when ill be gaming, Should I invest in a larger Monitor to use as my Main display for the ps4 or should i just got the TV route. I've heard a lot of goof things about monitors and i was wondering should i head in that direction.

    Thanks

    Greg

    I find monitors give a better picture and response times than TVs but you are limited on size and would have to buy a separate pair of speakers (if you don't own those already)

    Monitors tend to be cheaper too. I guess it depends on how much you'd miss not having TV in your room.

    I will use my old Samsung for my tv, If i decide to us it. Because im from the UK but live in USA i usually watch my UK shows online (Laptop). Also size really isn't that big of a deal. Like you said in your other post 32 would be too big in my room also.. Prob go with 24/27". I do have speakers also so i don't have to spend more money on them

    Lower end monitors can be cheaper. But they'll often give a terrible picture.

    In that case go for a monitor. I find them often miles better than TV's Asus, BenQ, LG, Samsung and Viewsonic are good bets. How much are you willing to spend?

    About 200. I didn't want anything bigger than 32, so maybe a 24/27" for my bedroom becaUse it's only small and I always sit close to the tv. 2/3 feet away. Only way I can get in the zone.

    I bought a 27" 1080p monitor yesterday to prepare for ps4. Asus MX279H

    For reference, I had a 42" 1080 TV all this gen but I wanted a monitor in my room so I can game without being dependent on the living room being available

    Yeah i also just upgraded from a 32in Philips HDTV to a 43in Samsung HDTV only for $350 can't wait to get my ps4 and see how great KZ:SF and BF4 look on it.

    Id recommend just buying a HDTV so then you want have to buy speakers for it

    TV is good for sure but you have to pay more to get a good gaming tv. Samung or Sony series W9 is the best for gaming and movies. But each TV cost 1999 now, so if I was you. I would wait until I get enough money to get a good gaming TV and not wasting my money.

    Honestly, Asus just made a SONY Bezel on a Panasonic Stand, and i gotta call that a win, lol!

    This is an awesome looking monitor. I gotta say it probably beats either my 5 year old LG 27 in or my 3 year old Vizio (Both IPS) 120hz 1080p 32 in TV I use for a primary. Very very very very sweet looking.

    I see we have the same headset, remember it's not gonna work day one, but a fix is due very fast.

    Nice monitor. I prefer TV because I love seeing games on a huge screen but I do plan on buying a BenQ monitor for my PC sometime soon.

    Hi Itachi,

    Nice, may I know what model is that?

    I'm looking for a monitor / TV for my upcoming 4th gen console too, so, any other recommendations?

    I currently own the Sony 40inch EX520.

    27 inch
    IPS LED Monitor
    1080p 60hz
    09ms Input Lag
    5ms Response Time

    I will most likely get one for my PS4

    Don't buy anything until you look at this site http://www.displaylag.com/display-database/ . It's nice to know the input lag before you buy the tv. Input lag and response time are two different things.

    The Monitor Itachi bought is at the top of the list for lowest input lag.

    That's awesome. The tv I'm getting has input lag of 26ms. Hard to find a big tv that isn't over a grand that has low low input lag.

    Depends on your setup
    My console/tv is on the same desk as my PC so i can do PC stuff while i console game/watch tv and vise versa. I am 2-3 feet away from the screen and i absolutely love this setup so a monitor is perfect for me. Will most likely never buy a TV ever again.
