Gaming monitor differences/£££££.

Past 12 months I've been using the Asus vs248hr monitor on the PS4, was circa £115 on Amazon.

Birthday looming end of May I'm thinking of asking for a contribution to a 'better' monitor.

With a budget of let's say £250-300 am I going to notice lots of difference?.

What sort of games do you play?

A more expensive monitor could support faster refresh rate or 4K resolution, if your PS4 does of course.

Think the PS4 is limited to 60hz?. Will be looking at the ps5 when it comes out and assume it will be 120 plus?

Shooters. Cod, BF4 etc

Top end of budget but I enjoy gaming (when I get chance) so better to invest in the best I can afford

Like I said, I haven't been reading much about them recently so their may be better out there for the price.

Don't be afraid of Korean brands like Crossover, I've had a few and they're still running flawlessly.

If it's for a PS4 then I'd just recommend a decent HDR TV instead

If it's for a PC then you can look at a 144hz one in that budget

EDIT: Just read it could be considered for a PS5. Need to know what HZ they plan on running at

I used to play on the 50 odd inch wall mounted TV in the lounge.

I find the monitor much better to play on.

Next-gen consoles will be HDMI 2.1+ with support for VRR, QMS and per-scene dynamic HDR (4k @120Hz, 8K @ 60Hz). It's unlikely there will be enough grunt to run 8k games at 60fps though! :p

I wouldn't recommend a TV unless it has really low input latency less than 30ms I think is classed as low for a TV but most gaming monitors are 1ms. Especially if your playing fps etc. I hate my current TV for that!

This - definitely. You really don't notice how inferior (the majority) of TVs are in comparison to a decent monitor - until you try it. When I connect the PC to the TV via SteamLink, I have to be selective on what I can play. Anything requiring rapid screen refreshing such as AAA FPS or racing games look blurred and laggy.

Resolution to me is always secondary. I'd rather have super slick 120/144hz, flawless 1440 resolution than a slower, larger display outputting 4K. Once you see it, you never want to go back.

As @SharkyUK says - the grunt required to push 8K along well enough is going to be very, very high indeed....

Standard 1080 HD pixel count = 2,073,600
(QHD) 1440 pixel count = 3,686,400
4K pixel count = 8,294,400
8K pixel count = 33,177,600!

Would people advise going for a TN with a better response time1ms, or a IPS panel with a 5ms and better quality picture but with maybe a slower refresh rate (wether it's noticeable?).

I would go for IPS every time. You would be hard pushed to notice the difference between 1ms and 5ms unless you're some mad pro gamer.

Yep will tend to agree.

Not something I looked into last time, assumed all the same (noob) just a matter of cost/performance etc.

Will be an ips with a budget of £300

Go......

What size do you want? What resolution do you play at? Do you need any adaptive sync technology?

Its actually really hard to find a decent 1080p 60hz IPS 27inch screen lol I have just spend 15 ish mins and didn't find much.

Have you looked at VA monitors? They are in the middle of IPS and TN in terms of response time and picture quality. That's what I had until I broke it and it's what I'll be getting next. You can game on them and they also look great for watching films.

I'm using my old TN monitor just now and it sucks for viewing angles

yeah looked at va, but for online my thoughts are

Tn panel, faster response time, lower pic quality
Ips panel. A little slower response time, much better quality.
Va panel. half way house, most choose the above two??.

Unless i just get a better picture quality TN panel than the Asus VS248HR I have now. Was £115 as a price point.

Yer I saw that, maybe the contrast ratio could be a bit better. Not sure what the colour coverage is like. Looks like a nice monitor tho.

Going for this one.


Think I read it can go too 75hz?. It's 129 and the reviews look decent.

Unless I spend lots on an ips I don't think there will be much difference in quality.
