Looking for data on using a 40" TV for a monitor


Recommended Posts

Check for low input latency, usually combined with a thing called "Game Mode" where the signal is not routed through many chips avaialable on thr PCB to enhance Video experience ( and slow it down ) but routed as fast as possible to the pixels.

 

Some in here I think use a Philips that is suited for that, cichlidfan I think is one of the guys using one with success, he might be the proper guy to ask for 1st hand experience and advice.

 

Your rig is adequate for 1080p gaming and DCS, OC that CPU...it yearns to scream beyond 4.5GHz :)

Yes the latency which is low as possible is very important.

There two another things come into my mind:

1. Try to get a TV with a low clouding (inhomogeneous backlight) or take an OLED.

2. A higher panel input frequency is a huge advantage. Most TVs only support 60Hz input. 100Hz or even above may reduce micro juddering while using a headtracker.

It is a Monitor, though it can be used as TV also. May be sold by thursday!

I remember at least 1-2 threads on the subject... Looking for an inexpensive solution for a large monitor experience (32"-40")...

 

I would not recommend it. It is all about pixel density, and a large TV will have a very low one, about twice less pixels per inch comparing to a regular 24" 1920x1080 monitor.

I've been using a 39" Samsung HDTV as my monitor for the last 18 months. Works solid, and I love ALL of my games/sims on it.

+1. Even if you're going to sit relatively far away still there are other things to consider like input lag, ghosting and screen tearing (lack of support for adaptive sync) and many more issues related to screen characteristics as also features (like lack USB concentrator).

 

Edit: Using TV as a monitor is ok for showing pictures, power point or maybe for editing an excel. When it comes for more non trivial applications like gaming, DTP, CAD, etc, dedicated monitors will always be much better.

I currently use two displays:

 

main display - expensive DELL Monitor 27 inch with 2540x1440 pixels

second display - cheap ancient (2008-ish) LG TV 32 inch with 1360x768 pixels

 

Honestly the difference between the both is not that big. I have used the LG TV as my PC main monitor for years and it worked great. Input lag is very small.

 

Do a good research on input lag before you buy, thats the main argument for gaming use of a TV.
