    Default Alternative to Big Format Gaming Displays

    As most of you already know nvidia partnered with companies like asus hp acer to put out big effing gaming displays at a eye watering price tag of about 5K USD or 6700 CAD

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sR1EK210xG8

    So being a HDTV gamer since 2014, I kind of guessed this would become a reality. This is more of a headsup for those who are interested in these soon to be released BFGD monitors/TV,

    Always consider looking in to Rting.com for HDTVs that can be purchased for a fraction of the BFGD's price. You will loose out Gsync and that's about it.


    The current best gaming HDTVs are,

    Vizio (pretty much most of the models. They actually come with one dedicated low latency hdmi port)
    Samsung Q9fn, Q8Fn, Q6fn, NU8000

    I recently bought a Vizio Quantum PQ65-F1 which does 1080P in 120HZ with 9 to 10ms or 15ms in 4K 60hz

    My unit performs flawlessly in CSGO. 1080P upscaled to 65" space looks absolutely stunning and it's actually easy on your eye if you are a buira gamer such as myself.

    Since I have done a fair bit of research on HDTV gaming for some time, i would be happy to answer any questions you might have.

    Monitors/Gaming TVs are bloody expensive in this country, and importers are faced with having to pay taxes if it's over a certain amount of inch.

    It's atrocious if you look at the prices for a proper 2K monitor here in BD compared to overseas. All you get are a thousand different selections of 1080p 21.5s.

    Is BFGD even practical? Even with 4k, a decent 55" TV has sub-100 ppi that demands you play from the couch. In which case, what's even the point of gaming competitively from the couch?

    IMHO high refresh rate 21:9 or 32:9 monitors are the way to go.

    Vizio's own website link to the tv you have says it has an "effective" refresh rate of 240HZ.
    If you could clarify what this really means.
    Also, where did you purchase this from and how much?
    Thanks.
    Pardon my ignorance.

    You really have to try playing game in one of these giant fast screens. The downside is you will be spoiled.

    if you are into hardcore professional tournament then yes stick to gaming monitor. but if you want epic immersion then HDTV is the way to go until VR gets more matured but VR may not be that comfy for long session.

    To me the biggest advantage of HDTV over gaming monitors are much better Colors, higher contrast ratios and way better HDR and latency similar to PC monitor or even better than some. And i think HDR will soon become the next big thing in my opinion.

    The Actual panel does 120hz refresh Rate which is actually better than some of the pc monitors. That 240 is not real. and done via software/hardware manipulation. Not a fan of fake refresh rates. but This helps to smooth out judder and useful for playing any movies/series with soap opera effect.

    For TV and gaming monitor reviews check rting.com these guys are the best of the best

    I bought mine from Canada but you should be to find comparable HDTV models in Dhaka. there was a store in Multiplan who used to sell high end HDTV cant remember the name. you can check that locations. but as someone has mentioned it will be a bit pricey.

    Now that Nvidia supports freesync, I think buying big TVs would be a good choice for me if the TV has freesync and proper LFC of course.

    Not everyone plays COD/ FPS online games though..

    But maybe one day we will get 250 PPi, 21:9 100" gaming TVs.

    From a color accuracy standpoint, yes HDTVs are way to go. Panel manufacturers and TV makers all prioritize better panels for the TV market but still I don't envy it. Because even with a large screen display we're still stuck to the god-awful FOV of 16:9 aspect ratio. Unless 21:9 or higher becomes industry standard I'm not hyping. But considering movie industry drives the video standard, I'm not hopeful.

    you actually don’t need high ppi when you are sitting 7,8 feet away.
