Looking for good 4K TV to play PC games - Page 2

post #11 of 42
Go with a 1440p gsync. 4k isn't worth it tbh.

I would call that an issue then...but that TV supports 120fps input I think which might fix the gaming problems. But then again, driving 4K at 120fps would require better than 4 GTX980s.

Well 4:2:0 text isn't crisp. I think you would want that for a primary monitor. I have two 4k tvs. One that does 4:4:4 and one that does 4:2:0. I don't play on either. They do look beautiful standing still with not motion but once you get in heave scenes I just can't stand it. I've been playing on 144hz screens for years and now with the x34 its only 100hz and still tell a big difference.

I suppose if you are used to 60hz screens then jumping to 4k is amazing, but if you really buy quality gaming monitors I believe your opinion will differ.

4:2:0 chroma you will experience this: (along with desktop subsampeling that doesn't darken your black text all the way but greys it with grey and yellow)



This is unacceptable (imo I guess) for any primary monitor use. That's why I say get a 4k monitor specifically for PCs and you will not run I to this problem.

It's 60hz 60fps. True motion may give you 120hz feel for movies but gaming there is no chance getting above 60fps because display port 1.2 doesn't allow it. You may not even have that because all tvs I know of are using HDMI 2.0 and DP is just optimal for now and the future. That's why it's standard on all pc monitors now. HDMI 2.0 will give you 60fps but DP will be compatable for DP 1.3 which WILL allow more bandwidth and more fps.

Well, it depends. In twitch games it's an issue. If you're only playing RPG, mmo, 3rd person then many might not notice. I'm just coming off of gaming monitors and am more sensitive to delay then I once was.


The TV can do 120Hz at 1080p. From what I gathered it should be true 120Hz, but, haven't tested it out yet to confirm or deny.


I own two gaming monitors. XB270HU/1440p/IPS/144Hz/Gsync, and a BenQ/1080p/TN/144Hz. High fps gaming is good, the visual experience is junk. Personally I won't be buying another gaming monitor. I'll leave them for their intended audience.

My thoughts exactly. I had a Samsung 7100 4K 40" tv and used it as a monitor for both work and play. It had 4:4:4 and got great reviews all over the place. But as it was too big for me and I never get used to playing with it I am using now my 27" Acer Predator XB1 and I have become, really, a "much better gamer". I don't know if iit is because of the Gsync, the great refresh rate or/and the 144hz but everything works better than when playing in such a beautiful and big display like the 40" one was.

What about Panasonic 50-55CX700? It supports full 4:4:4 chroma, has great colours and good input lag. I played Battlefront, SWTOR and couple racing games on it so far.. and would recommend it to everyone looking for quality 4K TV for gaming.

Agreed. I have a 40" Samsung JU6500 and while it looks fantastic displaying still images and the like, I tend to do all my gaming on a 24" BenQ XL2411Z. I was willing to trade screen real estate and image quality for 144hz and low input lag. My gaming, especially FPS, has greatly improved. Now I am tempted to dump both and step up to a 27" with Gsync and sit tight until a true 4k solution comes to market.

I can recommend you, without any hesitations, the Acer XB1. It's really the best monitor I've had and I've had quite a few. I just wish it was a little more bigger and it's why now I'm looking for the X34. And one interesting fact: my XB1 is actually incredible great playing with my PS4 hooked up. Of course, I know I'm limited to just 60hz and no Gsync but even then the games run remarkably smooth, so much that it remind me, for the first time, those days when I played in the early 90s with my CRT tv with the additional plus of the beautiful IPS colors.

Problem with IPS is they have terrible contrast. People will pick out the screen with the best contrast as being the better looking screen every time. IPS are good at what they're good at and terrible at what they're bad at. Most overrated display type there is. TV reviews shoot IPS screens down quickly. For some reason they're the current go to on monitors. They need to start making gaming monitors rear-lit VA until OLED becomes more affordable.
