Why am I playing worse on a monitor?

SDS

Some goof sold me a monitor for $5 so I decided to try it out but I’m playing worse. What’s the deal lol

SDS

Well it’s was $5 for a reason

SDS

You both have incorrect logic. A monitor doesn't always have to be a good monitor. And a $5 monitor doesn't have to make it a bad one either.

SDS

Well are you later on pitches or earlier. Need more information. Using a monitor typically decreases input lag.

SDS

Monitor is an hp and it was $5 because the guy thought it wasn’t worth anything because it didn’t have a power cord which I bought for $6 lol. Im pretty much on time with everything just can’t see the ball as good.

riveting story bro

you had me on the edge of my seat

I’d ignore this guy.

Maybe the visuals of the monitor aren’t on par with the TV you were playing on before. Sometimes you do have to mess with the picture settings to get it to look right for that game.

SDS

Surprise OP you are the goof. What a turn of events. Actually your more of a sucker

yeah what a useless thread a basic google search can sort out issues of latency & there are variables involved like internet etc.

must be too hard today for ppl to take 5 mins and research on their own

Its a forum for this stuff. Probably more helpful than trying to google something you dont know much about. You were the random who jumped in. Thats all.

You gotta stick with it I was playing pretty good on my tv last year and then I switched to a monitor and I didn’t play as well but this year I’m playing way better on the monitor then I did on tv the response time and pci movement is a little faster so it just takes some time to get used to but you’ll be better in the long run if you use the monitor over time

Look up the model number on the monitor to see the specs, you want to search for the input lag. A good monitor will be <1ms... Newer TVs are under 10ms. It's possible if it were an older monitor that it isn't much different than a newer TV.

Also, if input lag is fine you need to adjust your settings on the monitor and PS4. There's many resources for that. I play on TV so don't know the monitor settings.
