I can't really say any TV is a good for gaming compared to a monitor. Most TVs have anywhere form 30ms to 120ms input lag. The bigger it is, the higher the input lag.


A lot of those TVs have a "game mode" which turns off HDR and other features. That just turns the TV into a generic brand but drops the input lag all the way down to 17-30 (depending on the brand).

Samsung's Q7F QLED 4K panels are the best I'v seen. http://www.rtings.co...g/q7f?uxtv=a3d8


Now they are even better with Q8C QLED curved panels. http://www.samsung.c...-qn55q8camfxza/

I know this post is a little old

but saying there are no good gaming TVs is ridiculous

just so you know, most high end TVs support HDR10

maybe 1% of monitors do, I can't think of one under 500$ which 90% of monitors cost less than


what it comes down to, how far away from the TV do you want to sit?

and do you want to limit your self to 60 FPS? 

I don't recommend you put a 40" TV on your computer desk,, bro - go ULTRAWIDE

some new 38" ultrawides came out and are pretty cool 

if you want a 4K monitor, just get a 32", but again, it won't have HDR
