The term game might just be a word for many people, but it is a feeling to the ones who are knee depth involved in it. For the gamers, a phone or a PC isn’t enough, because they don’t believe in a good picture, they are into a responsive device that would have low input lag. Yeah, that is because it decides the game and that my friend, matters a lot to gamers.

Choose the right TV

PC gamers might be a lot into their monitors and spend their time at the desk, but it is completely different for console players, they relax and play with their headsets in and in front of them a TV that is more than just about a good picture. These gamers require a TV that is great on picture quality, balancing all contrast and colors which are close to what is designed as in the original game. Along with this, another main consideration is remote ergonomics and interface design so that, the TV you get is an all in one investment. However, what gamers take into account the most is input lag. 

What is Input Lag?

Input lag can be defined as the time difference between the receiving of the signal and the sending of the signal. A lot of games are timing focused and a lag can change the course of the game completely. Even the tiny pauses matter and compensating for long legs might not look good all the time. Input lag generally falls in a range of 15 to 80 milliseconds for televisions yet 30-40 ms is acceptable.

4K or HDR?

Although 4K TVs are prevailing in the market, for the gaming world, it is new and limited to high-end games. High Dynamic Range of HDR has been in the market for quite a long time and is known for its steady growth in adoption and usefulness. What you choose is mostly dependent on the game you choose for yourself.

Let’s get to the list of TVs you can choose for yourself.
