My Epson is limited to 1080p whereas most of my other gear/content has transitioned to 4K (and in my mind more importantly HDR). With my setup it just becomes a pain in the ass to be constantly juggling resolutions. I put up with it for awhile because it is occasionally nice to have the larger screen real estate, but my bulb is practically EOL and I'm not inclined to invest any further resources into it. My projectors all provided a fabulous experience for their time, but my current 75" (which is installed in the same room as the projector) is demonstrably superior in every way other than total screen size, particularly when it comes to gaming.

I currently have a 40inch 4k Samsung 40ju7500 for a monitor. But I'm looking to go to a ROG Swift PG278QR I really miss ULMB makes the picture looks so much better. Also want to try out G-Sync. I'm really sensitive to frame rate drops. It's nice having a big monitor/TV but the ULMB makes such a big difference. Don't really game much on my 138inch 2.35:1 setup with my JVC RS620. The big screen is nice but only really use it for racing games. Everything else I like a smaller monitor for.

JVC RS 520 with a 2.35 110" wide screen (120'' diagonal). First row is 9' from screen.

PC with 1080 ti
PS4 Pro
Xbox One
Switch

I am trading refresh rate for immersion AND audio superiority with very little regret.

The lag is (edit) 37 ms. I can't say that I really notice the lag although I'm sure some gamers probably do. I do not play online much at all. I do play some FPS games but I almost never take them online. I don't play competitively. If I did all of those things maybe I would feel differently. Or maybe I'm just not good enough at games to even notice anyway.

For me the immersion factor is very compelling. It draws me into the experience. You simply cannot achieve the same thing by sitting closer to a small monitor. But the audio is probably an ever bigger reason for me to game in my dedicated HT. To say it knocks the socks off of a smaller surround sound set up is an understatement. The audio has the ability to draw you into the experience perhaps even more than the video with certain games. When I think about gamers "experiencing" an explosion with an HTIB or even worse with headphones it makes me kinda sad.

I do look forward to HDMI 2.1 and the possibility of VRR. I would like a better or at least more stable frame rate for my gaming. And I have wondered how much difference it would make for me. With my 1080 ti I get 60 fps with basically everything I play at 4K and since that matches my 60 Hz refresh rate I don't think I'm missing much.

I would be that if I were to game on a 65'' or larger OLED at 4 feet I would be pretty happy too. The OLED would have better contrast than my projector. Better HDR too with brighter capability. The problems with this are how to sit 4 feet from the screen and the aforementioned audio. Plopping the OLED down in my dedicated room to get the audio benefits has its own set of issues.

I'd think most play on 21-24" monitors.

but I play on a 30" OLED monitor at my desk and a 77" oled when i play on the TV. (PC as the source on both (90% of the time.) I don't use the consoles unless there isn't an option to play those games on the PC.)

You mind if I ask which monitor you have?
I have the Acer Predator Z321QU. It's been ok. Like you say, off-axis is not a factor for PC monitors since we're always in the sweet spot This is a curved VA-based GSYNC display.

Also have the HP Omen 32, VA-based. That one struggled with certain pixel transitions. This one is much better on that front.

I play my PC and Consoles on a Samsung Q9FN 75". It is a fantastic set for gaming. Say what you will about the EOTC tracking for movies etc. For gaming, it is one of the best displays for gaming, which 95% of my use of this set is for gaming.

106 inches and PJ. Plan on replacing it with an 82 inch or larger TV. Sacrificing size doesnt come easy but i prefer the picture quality and ease of use of a TV enough to make the jump now that TVs finally have become big screens.

55” Q8FN dedicated desktop gaming and office monitor from about 4” away. Playing Xbox One X @ 4k/HDR/60hz and PC gaming @ 1440p/120hz with 15-20ms input lag. I felt the 49” Q6FN I had was slightly too small but the 55” sometimes seems slightly too big but I can sit a little further back and it’s good.

I game on a dated 1080p 65" plasma that has nearly no lag. I'd love to upgrade to a 4k screen but I have been spoiled with no lag and very beautiful blacks. I don't know if OLED is up to the challenge. And the prices for a 75" set (which is the size I want) are quite high. LCD is out the question as the lag makes gaming unplayable.

Pioneer KURO Plasma TV - 50". No lag, no smear, just beautiful color that doesn't fade when viewed off center! Darn thing is about 10 years old and still going strong. Generally used on Movie setting which is easy on the eyes, and Game or Sport setting when appropriate. Built like a tank, weighs 104 lbs. With its wide bezel it looks obsolete until you turn the picture on, at which time you can see why it's worth keeping.

I do the bulk of my gaming on a launch day PS4 (still going strong) through a Sony VPL-55ES to a 110" screen. When I'm not in my theater, I use remote play with the PS Vita. The transition from 110" to 5" is quite the change.

Plus, gamers tend to sit closer to their displays, especially pc gamers who keep their systems on a desk.

Of course, here on avs forum we have a home theater gaming section because this is the home of av enthusiasts who appreciate the value of a big picture. And with 4k (including hdr) gaming now a reality on pc and consoles, and with lots of affordable tvs and projectors that can handle 4k/60p input available, gamers who might not have considered the value of visual immersion when it comes to their gaming experience have many viable options with which to make the leap.

Let's get down to the options:

1. Laptop or tablet screen
2. Monitor 40" or smaller
3. Monitor 40" or larger
4. Ultra-wide monitor (any size)
5. Multiple monitors (any size)
5. Tv 55" or smaller
6. 65" tv
7. 75" tv
8. 85" tv or larger
10. Projection

i made this poll multiple-choice, so if you game on more than one type/size display, please choose all the answers that apply. Vote in the poll located directly above this post.

I sit about 4 feet away from my 59inch ,1080p plasma. I don't see the need for 4k, I can't see the 1080p pixel structure from this close so what would be the point? Optometrist says my eyes are better than 20/20.



Once OLED catches up to Plasma motion clarity and eye tracking motion blur I'll upgrade, but it won't be for the 4k resolution.

RPG gaming is great on large screens, but when you play FPS games that are fast paced, you have to play on 24-32" gaming monitor. There's zero benefit of going larger in online play. In 2016, on the same day I purchased the 75" Sony 940D for the home theater and the 28"Samsung U28E590D for the Xbox One (wasn't even a debate in that decision).

After I discovered "Home Theater Gaming", I lost interest in the desktop graphics card, CPU, RAM etc race and measureburation game.... A PS4 Pro on a 92" screen.... YAY!
Try your PC on the projector - you'll only use the PS4 for exclusives.

I recently moved my gaming rig into the home theatre, and after using it for a while it's not leaving The PC versions of games are almost always a big leap over their PS4 Pro/XBOX counterparts!

With my house under construction, my options are bit limited, but currently:

21" Sony GDM-C520K CRT - I use this with my primary gaming PC using resolutions/refresh combinations ranging from [email protected] to [email protected]
65" X930E - I use this with my consoles/streaming PC for 1080p120 and 4K60/HDR gaming.

Once the home theater is back up and running, I'll have the 120" 1080p Epson 8350 projector running again. The end goal will be that we'll have centralized PCs and consoles that can be displayed anywhere in the house through a combination of optical HDMI cables, swtiches/repeaters, and ethernet streaming.

Curious if anyone else does this? From time to time I'll go scope just for kicks using my a-lens minus the vertical stretch. (2.37:1 @ 162" diagonal)

I was playing Unravel earlier today this way. Fun little game.



And yes, I still need to give the ceiling and side walls the dark treatment. :-P
Do you ever get dizzy? lol. Looks like you could be standing in the game
