Finding a Good UHD TV for use as a computer monitor.
Hey guys, I have a 5 year old TV I've been using as a computer monitor for a long while now and I'm ready to upgrade. I know the preferred choice for PC's are monitors, however I want to future proof a bit as I'll probably have this TV for the next 3-4 years. To me that means UHD. But to me a UHD monitor just doesn't make sense, they are nearly as expensive as TV's and too small to benefit from 4k with most being around 27". Plus since I have my TV wall mounted it's easy to re-purpose as a normal TV for when friends come over to watch movies/shows or play games. Basically I love the benefits of a Large TV, but it also has to function as a proper computer monitor. So what I'd like help with is finding a TV for use as both a gaming and work monitor.
My budget is $2,000 USD, but it is slightly flexible provided there's an outlier.
Here are my wants
~50" preferred, but willing to go slightly larger.
1. 10 bit, 120hz Native refresh panel
2. Full HDMI 2.0 and 4:4:4 Chroma SS Capabilities at 4k 60hz
3. HDCP 2.2
4. HEVC H.265 encoder for 4k streaming content
5. Good input lag
Extras that I'd like but aren't necessary
I realize a TV like this simply may not exist, however the Vizio P series minus it's Chroma Capabilities and HDMI 2.0 bandwidth restrictions came remarkably close to fitting the bill at an incredible price.
