Any advice on a monitor

CraigG
 Share

I am considering to purchase either a 43" computer monitor (Samsung or LG) or a 50" Samsung TV. I do not game, I do a lot of music production and need the screen real estate for my work. Is this a good television to use for that purpose, or should just stick with the traditional computer monitor?

Thanks

Craig

I see no point in purchasing a QLED smart TV to use as a monitor for music production. The picture benefits of QLED and the "smart" features will be completely wasted. If you wanted to use a TV as your display, surely you could find an equally large one with fewer unnecessary features that's cheaper.

Friends don't let friends use Userbenchmark. Ban the term "bottleneck." Corps aren't your friends. If the PC does what you need it to do well enough, it's good enough. Don't build the "best" system, build the system that makes you happy.

For music production you should maybe consider an 34" (LG 34GP83A-B), 38" (LG 38GN950-B) ultrawide or a 49" (Samsung CRG9) super-ultrawide.

Ideally u would want to search for a large TV with a RGB pixel layout ,and while a IPS TV isnt great for movie watching, it would be better for the kind of productive workload ur use case entails as u would have no issue with viewing angles which are present on VA panel TVs.

 

As such i would advise u look at LG TVs as they use IPS panels predominantly.
