I don’t tend to play as many fast respocne games besides I don’t think it matters much when your piloting a 100 ton war machine in Mechwarrior online besides art looks better in full screen

I discovered that on my 40″ 4k smart TV (samsung MU6300) there is a PC mode feature. It is enabled automatically or manually by tagging your source input as PC. It eliminates any lag, if i had to guess it is below 10ms because I cannot tell a difference between my monitor (4ms) and my 4k TV when it comes to response time. Not sure if other TV’s have this feature, but it is not advertised at all and is way better than game mode (for PC only) it appears to bypass almost all the processing on the TV end, you can only fine tune your standard color options and active contrast. This is just $600 at walmart, nothing overly fancy at all.

I like that every reviewer talks about 144 hz vs 120hz , but noone is talking about how much the gpus has to push when a monitor is 120 , 140 hz … etc or 2k , 4k …

I don’t play competitive shooters, not my cup of tea so a big tv is a better investment for me.
