    Not really, if you can get a TV with input lag under 16ms you won't tell a difference.

    Get a < 50 inch TV over a monitor.

    make sure it's true 10bit and has HDR where the max nits is as high as possible - over 1000 NITS would be ideal, but those are few and far between with the crap we get offered on the SA market.

    I think the NU8000 series from samsung is bang for buck in this department. Especially for a gaming only "monitor"

    There are no great priced 4K true 10bit true HDR monitors in SA. If you can find the 1000nits ones they are like crazy expensive

    Monitors are typically between 10-30ms on the console input lag front, in my experience anything from around the mid 20s down feels great. I think it's only if you fancy yourself a bit of a pro and take your display to competitive LAN events, you'll want 16ms and below. Not because I think you'll actually feel a difference (which is the important part to me) but because it does offer a nominal competitive edge.

    For those interested, the figures we're throwing out here are only relevant to a 60Hz input.

    Couple of issues, why do you have to have a "true" 10 bit display, and how would you know if it was or not? 1000 nits on a 10% window is a requirement for LCDs along with a black level of 0.05 nits - this has lead to manufacturers targeting 10% windows specifically, and with edge lit displays that black level is not achievable alongside that peak diluting the spec somewhat.

    OLED requirements are also different, a peak of 500 nits and a black level of 0.0005 nits.
