post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Hi guys, I started playing a lot on my console again and it seems like I need a new TV. I am looking at the The best TVs for gaming, but the TVs i provided in the link are quite HUGE, and I really just want a smaller one and I can't seem to find any... Do you guys have any recommendations?

Not sure, but I will tell you to research the latency ms rating on your tv before you buy it, I almost got an OLED tv once and it was rated at 65ms latency... I would aim for 30 or less... ideally lower than even that. I am not sure if there are any OLED's with low ms rating, also knowing your budget would be helpful and what size you need

The tv i have is a un32j5003 32 inch. Great little tv i paid 175 for it over a year ago. The latency is pretty good. The black color is poor could be better. The response time is great on it at 13.2ms. All in all solid tv for very little money. I am looking forward to 1440p. The D32-D1 is also a really good 32inch gaming tv better than the 5003.

Depending on what you're looking for, especially on sizes, here are my two recommendations. I should also add that your best resource on this is rtings.com. I'm going for a 1080p display first because it has frequently been said that 4K is not that noticeably visible until about 50" or larger, but I'm no expert, just an enthusiast.

Probably your best gaming TV at a smaller size/price point is the TCL40FS3800. It's a smart TV, it has low latency (27.2 ms in and out of game mode), and it passes 5.1DD/DTS through the optical out (useful for hooking a game system/PC up via HDMI and sending 5.1 Dolby Digital/DTS out through the TV, not to mention smart apps). It's 40" and can often be found for $250-$275.

If you think that 4K/HDR is the future and you know you want it (this means you're going to be gaming on a PC with a strong graphics card, buying a PS4 Pro, or a Scorpio - do not believe the hype, XB1-S is cool but it's really a 1080p game system that plays 4K Blu-Ray, not a true 4K system in the least). If this is the case, it's pricier, but you'll want the Sony X800D series, which comes in 43" and 49" flavors starting at about $600-$700. It's got 4K, HDR, it has a game mode with low latency (33 ms), great motion blur, great upscale of 720p/1080p content, and supports 1080p60 at 4:4:4 for PC gamers and 4K60 at 4:4:4 as well. It's the jack of all trades at a smaller size.

I was (or still am) searching for a 40+ inch 4k tv for pc use (gaming/flight sims for me)..

Here is my thread

Basically the gist is at this point i settled on the Samsung 6290.. i've tweaked it as best i can and have it looking pretty great. My nvidia card is set to 4k @ 60hz and RGB, not 4:4:4 (still unclear why looked better on RGB).

I was considering other lcd monitor options in that thread, but have now ruled those out.. looks like itll be awhile before another 40+ lcd monitor comes along that is decent and has gsync too or higher refresh rates.

As mentioned previously here, the x800D 43" was my other consideration as it doesnt have the brightness PWM flickering as i understand it (however i dont see ghosting/flickering yet? on my samsung).. they both have about the same ms rating though for lag.

I recently picked up the 55in C6 OLED by LG and it's the best TV Ive owned. It has a 34ms input lag which takes some minor adjustment for shooters, but the picture is worth it.

The 2017 model (C7) drops the input lag to 21ms and also supports 120Hz input with 1080p.

2017 models use the same underlying panel as 2016 though. HDMI 2.1, UHD @ 120Hz, VRR and significantly better response time and brightness should be coming with next year's panels. I remember reading sizes will come down too, but not positive about that. I was all set to buy this year but I'm waiting, and I'm on an ancient LCD because I missed out on Plasma.

Sizes will come down? 32" 4K@120Hz would make a neat monitor tongue.gif
