I love 46inch hdtv with gaming rig!

Response to THIS

I noticed a lot of members saying that they were thinking of doing a TV for a display. I thought I'd tell you mine without getting lost in an endless wave oh posts.



Would I recommend it? Definitely, but theres a few things to take into consideration.

Do you have enough deskspace?
How far away are you sitting?
Will you be okay with lower PPI?


My experience so far has been glorious. At first I was sitting on the couch with a wireless keyboard and mouse but it honestly didn't work out too well. I then decided to bring it closer and just sit at the desk like I normally would... Now this was difficult to get used to lol, especially when I'm used to a 21'5".

You cannot see it in the picture, but I actually have my 21.5" to the side of my TV for viewing movies/SC2 replays as I play games, it's quite good! I also use it for editing purposes when working on videos for youtube. The lower PPI really isn't an issue for me.

ALSO, When buying a TV you really need to check the refresh rate and I'd honestly refrain from buying a 120hz/240hz as they cause a great amount of input lag. Sure theres a "Game" setting on most TV's but in general they all lag to hell, I receive around 40ms input lag with 120Hz enabled, And Honestly 120Hz is a gimmicky feature, it makes alot of shows/movies look like soap opras and it makes Soap Opra's look..even more like soap opra's which is never good!

And in the other thread "bad pixel density" was mentioned, Honestly It's not that noticeable lol, and I'm a PPI nut, I always look for it in displays, eventually you just get used to it, In games it's really hard to notice.

Finally, why did >I< buy a 46"? Well, my idea is to wall mount it above my computer and place my monitor underneath and ultimately I'm too lazy for now, but in the future I will (I Have everything I need sitting beside me...). I was VERY pleased with my purchase and I'll probably never go back to JUST using a monitor, Games look friggin' amazing and I also have a blu-ray in my computer which make movies look wonderful; My girlfriend and I freaked out over the textures on a sock in ToyStory 3 for like 2 minutes and she's one of those "I don't see a difference between Bluray and Dvd..gawd" people. I also use my iPhone to control my PC (see, AirMouse) and it's VERY convenient for just sitting back and browsing the Internet (Hooray for CTRL+). Finally, I honestly don't see a point in getting a 32" HDTV, go big! I'm sitting about a foot and a half away from my TV and it's completely fine.

TL;DR: Read thee above!

Wow, really? You sit that close to it?

I have a 42 inch TV in the same room as my PC and I use both my 24 inch monitors and my 42 inch screen depending on the situation. I can't stand using the 42 inch unless I am sitting on the couch 10 feet away. I've tried putting a chair in front of my coffee table and sitting up close to the 42 inch but I can't stand it after about 10 minutes...

I find 24-32 inch the best for monitors. Anything more and it is just too large... I'd rather get a 3x 24 inch setup and actually have wider field of view if I'm gonna go that crazy.

Eh, It's probably about 2 feet away. When I go into "Game Mode" it mades a 1-2 inch border around the picture which actually makes it easier to see everything
