I think I would be tempted by this. It's time I dropped back down to 27inch.

And yet here I sit thinking "for 1k I'll buy that nice 65" Samsung 4k tv I've been eyeing over this monitor" sure the refresh rate on the tv is only 120Hz but that is more then okay for me and I can run what I play at 4k easily.

I don't know, to me monitors have always seemed really pricey in comparison when to TVs when you get to the high end monitors vs a tv of similar pricing. But hey that's me! I also like playing on large screens and the way my rig is positioned makes sitting back and looking at a large TV ideal for me specifically. Your experience may vary :P

A TV is still not great to have acting as a monitor. I have tested my Samsung quantum dot 65" 4k screen for example. The input lag was horrible (I have high expectations) and the g2g tests were poor.

I felt more comfortable using my 1080p 120hz TN monitor from Benq than the samsung one. TV are getting better all the time, but I would still take a cheap monitor over an expensive TV for the sake of performance over graphical fidelity.

Even my 34" IPS screen has become a disappointment to me right now.

Hopefully thing will get better with HDMI 2.1. It's planned automatic low latency mode (ALLM) should be useful.

A lot of TVs have a "game mode" nowadays too which turns off filtering to minimise input latency, some switch to it automatically.

Pretty sure all ALLM does is automatically turn on Game Mode. Doesn't do much.

Most TVs aren't great because of input lag, response time, and they don't usually support 4:4:4 although this is starting to change.

There are some decent TVs for gaming: https://www.rtings.com/tv/tests/inputs/input-lag

Quite a few have <10ms input lag in 1080p120.

Yeah as i said, they are getting better. But I dropped £2500 on my tv and input lag was around 55ms. Didn't like that at all. Its also making FF15 on Xbox unplayable due to the odd ghosting going on, which Square blame on samsung not their latest patch
