Question about what TV/Monitor to play on?

SDS

Debating over getting a bigger TV, smaller TV, or monitor. Do you recommend playing on something bigger or smaller? What do you guys play on? Thanks

45 inch LED Samsung with HDMI input renamed to PC on game mode. Renaming input to PC reduces m/s for any Samsung owner out there

@bonion why did you do this to me? I haven’t played the show cuz I can’t catch up with fastballs (first time in like 8 years) Now your gonna get me hyped like this is the reason. Lol I am going to try this and hope it works

SDS

@CEZdominatesAD i knew right away bc I could even feel the “snappiness” of button pressing navigating the menu’s

My ASUS 24” monitor is incredible

SDS

@bonion lol yes!! Told my girl she needed to get of the tv I gotta check something out lmao.

SDS

@bonion that [censored] helped a lot man I went 2-1 but only cuz I was early on so many pitches. But the 2 I won I hit inside fastball and sinker

SDS

@CEZdominatesAD nice...graphics take a slight hit but to me response time > graphics

I’ve been playing better on a tv than my monitor lol but I regret playing on a monitor I should’ve never throw the remote at the screen so now I’m down a run

I second this. Night and day difference.

Just got one this week. Had only played on TV until now. Huge diff. This was on sale at Amazon for 159.00. A steal!

What?!?!?? I just switched this. Now, I just need my kids to go to sleep so I can see the difference. A couple days ago I realized that i had somehow turned off game mode, and it was amazing how much better I played online when I turned it back in. If what you just said also makes a difference I better start making room for my 12-0 and top 50 nameplates...or maybe my blood pressure will go down at least.

is this just a samsung thing? I have a panasonic and I switch it to game mode but I don't see any difference really. I still can't get near a fastball online. Is there something else I can do here?

In this case, size doesn’t really matter. Input lag matters. And I guess response time.

SDS

@marcak13 yes Samsung thing. Eliminates all post processing

Go onto a website called rtings.com. They do a lot of tests on TV's, monitors, headphones, etc. One of the cool things about their monitor reviews is that they measure input lag @60hz (PS4, Cable TV etc are all running at 60hz). Any monitor with a native resolution refresh rate below 9ms (the fastest they've tested in 5 years is 8.2) will feel almost like playing Nintendo on a tube.

The other important thing is to match the resolution to the source. If you have a PS4 pro running at 4k, then get a 4k monitor. If you don't...then try to find a 1080p monitor. This matters because if the monitor's native resolution is 4k, and it's being fed a 1080p source, then the monitor will have to upscale the image to fill the screen...this will create some input lag.
