Seiki 4K Ultra HD 120Hz LED TV for use as a monitor? - Page 2

post #11 of 12
30hz on the desktop simply won't cut it, as that amazon review states, there's going to be massive input lag. I wouldn't consider using 4K TVs as a monitor until they come equipped with HDMI 2.0 and can handle 60hz. This also means you will need a GPU with HDMI 2.0, or possibly might be able to use DVI-D to HDMI 2.0.

If you want "big" buy a quality 1080p TV for much less than those 4K displays cost. My 55" Sony 1080p HX929 still destroys any IPS/PLS 1440p I've tested it against when sitting at the ideal distances for each (7 and 2 feet respectively). It also cost about 2-3x as much as most 1440p IPS displays though...

If your set on 4k, I would wait either way. Nothing can run it very well right now unless you've got 2-3 Titans. Even a single Titan would struggle in newer games.

Have you ever tested out Sony's low-lag interpolation-free strobe backlight in Game Mode, called Sony Motionflow Impulse? (The only CRT-emulating Motionflow mode)

Try viewing www.testufo.com/#test=photo while turning on/off Impulse.
The clarity improvement is rather shocking -- it's like switching between 60Hz and 240Hz.
You do lose a lot of brightness, but adjust to compensate & disable the ambient-light sensor.
