Best monitor

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello, I currently use a 32inch 1080p 75hz  full HD tv for my ps4. But I want to go to a monitor. But I'm not sure what to get. People have suggested me different things. So I just want know. If I stay with 1080p with around 180- 200hz, or do I switch to 4k for 60hz or do I go in between for a 1440p 120-160hz monitor. Note, that this will be used for the future ps5/ XBS series and I have stand alone 4k DVD player (I have a old 4k tv in another room) but I want to buy a new monitor so  what would be better?

Are you staying with a PS4? My understanding is the PS5 and Series X are locked at 60fps. Likely their will be a few games above that, but as long as you stay on a console, I'm not sure it's worth it to go for a 144hz monitor. Money is another issue here. How much are you willing to spend?

Yes, I'm keeping my ps4. I can go around 600$ 

What ever you decide on, I'd start looking at all the things resulting in better picture quality and not just resolution and refresh rate. Response rate lowers ghosting along with refresh rate. If you know you are going for something with 60hz, the next stop is response time. Staying at 60hz, when I moved to a 2ms response time on a TN panel made playing Call Of Duty WWII more enjoyable on PS4. TN panels generally have lower picture quality compared to IPS panels, and if you are staying on a console, I'd go for picture quality over anything else. Also, IPS in general have better viewing angles, so if this is in a living room with family or roommates watching TV, you will want a monitor with wide viewing angles. And curved monitors have horrible viewing angles (For solo use, I love my curved monitor).

 

So I would recommend a 60hz, 4ms response time or less, on a flat IPS panel. Anything else is beyond my knowledge base.
