The following discussion is simple: which is better for games, monitor or TV? For most, the answer is simple: the first is for sitting at the desk, playing with the mouse and keyboard, and the second is for sitting on the couch, with the joystick in his arms. But can't the two be exchanged? Let's see, in more detail, why each is only suitable in some situations and why you can't use one instead of the other, so easily.
Since there are Smart TVs for browsing, and the diagonal of the monitors has become bigger and bigger, could it not be said that one has started to look like the other and, implicitly, that we can use one instead of the other? Well, yes, but when it comes to gaming, the situation is worth discussing in a little more detail. Let's see what are the advantages of monitors and which belong to TVs, when we talk especially about games:
Advantages of the monitor
The monitors are made to be viewed from a short distance, such as 50-100 centimeters. Their contrast and brightness are designed not to tire the eyes from short distances. In addition, they are also made for indoor use. If you take a monitor out, to watch a match, you will notice that it does not look too good, even if you maximize the image settings.
In addition, the monitors are made to have very short response times, in some cases even under 15 milliseconds. This allows minimizing delays (lag) in games where reflexes matter, therefore such a monitor is desired by fans of online competitions.
