Looking for something exciting to play your current or last-generation consoles on? Maybe you’re short on space, money, or you’d like to get more use out of your purchase? A computer monitor can do the trick.
Here are some reasons you can consider while buying a monitor for your gaming sessions:
Portable Monitors Occupy Less Space: If you are opting for a monitor, we have a portable and lightweight display that can be instantly moved onto the desk when not in use. If you want to play games, with the aid of a cheap but longer-than-usual HDMI cable, the monitor can be used flexibly while the TV remains in its usual place. The monitor is a great budget solution for playing two consoles at once. A smaller panel generally occupies less space with a thinner and lighter display.
More Valuable than a TV: Any day a good monitor is cheaper than a bad TV, particularly if you just want the panel for playing games and you’re not interested in the features that you won’t use. You need not to pay for a tuner or distended smart TV features, HDMI slots, network interfaces, USB connectivity, remote control and other connections that you’ll never use. Full HD displays are becoming much cheaper than they used to be, and the technology behind these panels is growing too. Most monitors provide better quality images than the same-priced TVs, with higher contrast ratios, faster response times, less ghosting, and less image interruption from disturbing manufacturer features.
You Probably Don’t Need a 4K Screen Yet: A logical upgrade these days is to invest in a 4K screen for your HD screen, but this technology is still comparatively expensive, and you can easily skip upgrading to it. Unless you have got a reasonably powerful PC, you won’t be playing console games in the “true” 4K resolution.
Considerations When Using a Monitor: There have a few things to keep in mind when you’re thinking of saving some space and money by opting for the monitor. Unlike TVs, monitors don’t usually come with speakers. If you want the best results, you’re going to have to sort out the audio for yourself. Plug into your favorite set of headphones and you are done.
Monitor or TV?
It totally depends on the preferences of the people. Some people may prefer the compact nature and the easiness to carry a monitor so that they can move around and use it for different purposes over a TV while others prefer the big screen experience. Some of you would have already invested in 4K, and in that case degrading to an inferior resolution does not make a lot of sense. But if you are thinking of purchasing a second screen, have space concerns, don’t forget that monitors are the best possible options.
