I didn’t really care about monitors or TVs as long the game or show was displayed correctly without any glaring issues.
This notion of mine has changed after testing high end monitors / TVs and laptops with nice monitors. I have tested 120 Hz monitors, 144 Hz monitors and even a 300 Hz monitor, OLED and LCD.
I noticed that games are so much more fun when playing on a good monitor. I haven’t bought new monitors in almost 10 years. Next time it’s time for premium monitors for the PC. For the living room it’s most probably gonna be a LG OLED.
Right now, I would probably never buy a monitor without a higher refresh rate and variable refresh rate. That’s why I’m really looking forward to a new TV in before the new console generation. To make gaming fun for real again.
