    Monitor for PS4 gaming

    As the title says - I need advice on what's good. Birthday's coming up, and I told my wife she's giving me a new gaming monitor. She seems to be reluctantly accepting the concept.

    Anyway - so far I've been playing ps4 on my old "flat screen" LG tv, which was pretty good back in 2007, when it was new. Now - not so much. I say "flat screen" because compared to the current top models, this one is not going on the cover of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition. Now I know Sports Illustrated rarely includes anything that is too "flat", but now I feel you're deliberately misunderstanding my metaphor. Stop it.

    I am contemplating going for a monitor this time. Sound is a non-issue, since gaming for me is on headset 98 percent of the time, and I have a decent one now, that'll last me a while. I need a good screen for gaming, plain and simple. So - what's good? Do I need 144 Hz or is 60 enough? Other things to look out for? I'm looking for a decent buy, at a reasonable price. 24-28 inch, I think. There's quite a lot of monitors on the market ranging from 150-300 pounds, hard to know what to choose. I'd prefer not to pay way more than 200 to be honest. I mean, my wife - would prefer not to pay. Yes. That's about it.

    So, any advice, tips or warnings?

    Honestly 60Hz is fine. ASUS, BENQ - that order
    Lowest response time in your budget

    You should be able to find 24 to 27 inch monitors with 2ms response times within your budget. Monitors are pretty cheap lately it seems.

    Yeah if you shop around you should easily get a 1ms inside your budget, or slightly over - just had a browse and already saw 1ms 24inch 144hz under 300

    Thanks guys - I'll try to find one at 1ms. But do I need to worry about 144 Hz? Won't be using it for other than ps4 anyway, but if it makes any positive difference, I'd prefer to go for 144.

    You mostly play FPS right, so @60Hz you'll get motion blur, less @120 and nothing at 144Hz

    Unless you're hardcore you'll prob not get that much from the diff - but if you plan on another 10 years go 144Hz

    But don't sacrifice on the 1ms thinking it's nothing

    Makes sense, thanks again

    Oh, and - any thoughts on size? I guess it will feel massively smaller anyway, but 24" vs 27"?

    I see I can get a Benq 27" 1ms inside budget, probably not 144 Hz, tho - but there's also a stellar Asus 24" 144Hz 1ms within reach.

    Depends on how far you intend to sit from it. If it's like a PC set up, 24 is probably just fine.

    Thanks! :) Right, now I have to think about furniture too. I guess I'll go for the Asus then, 3 inch difference prob'ly isn't that big anyway...
