We start with the cheapest option that we have found within large format monitors for games and that has 4K resolution. Highlight that this LG monitor is not properly focused on gaming, but you can comply without problems. Although it has 4K resolution, the refresh rate and response time are far from ideal.
We start from panelwhich is from IPS-type and has a size of 43 inches with a 2160p resolution (the misnamed 4K resolution). This monitor offers us a 60 Hz refresh rate, which is very low for a monitor intended for gaming, even with such a high resolution. Nor does it accompany the response timethat is of 8msbeing very high for a gaming monitor.
Something that we must highlight is that this monitor does not count with technology support AMD FreeSync and NVIDIA G-Sync, in any of its variants. And it is that it is not designed to play but, anyway, any monitor of 100-150 euros for office automation already has FreeSync.
Perhaps the most interesting thing about this monitor is that it allows you to divide the screen into two and four. This means that we can play two devices or four devices on the same screen. Integra, on the other hand, two 10W speakers each, something that can be interesting.
Regarding connectivity, it has two HDMI 1.4, two HDMI 2.2, one DisplayPort 1.4, and one USB-C port for data transfer compatible with DisplayPort 1.4.
It has a very attractive price, but if we want it to play, we do not recommend it. The truth is that lacking FreeSync, having such a low refresh rate and such a high response time make it less than optimal for gaming.
Gigabyte AORUS FO48U
We are now going with a beastly gaming monitor of a huge format and that has caught our attention due to its great price. This gigabyte display is 47.5 inches, so we have before us a monitor intended for large format games It has a high refresh rate, a very low response time and much more.
The first thing we have to see is the panel, this being OLED type with a 2160p (4K) resolution and a 47.5 inch size. This huge monitor offers us a frequency response up to 120 Hz, that is great In addition, it has a very low response time, just 1ms GTG.
It is not the only aspect that stands out from this monitor, since the panel is of enormous quality. It has anti-reflection technology, something that is always interesting and more, if we are going to play. Does this monitor have a 98% DCI-P3 and 130% sRGB color coverage. Also, it has a brightness up to 900 nits and a contrast of 135,000:1, which is great.
As we have mentioned, it has a 120 Hz refresh rate and is compatible with AMD FreeSync Premium. This guarantees sublime image quality without flickering and tearing in the image. In addition, it is compatible with the latest generation consoles.
The two HDMI 2.1 ports that integrates this monitor are compatible with the 120 Hz rate of the consoles PS5 and Xbox Series X. It also has a DisplayPort 1.4 and a USB-C port.
This is indeed a large-format gaming monitor designed for and to play in the living room at home. Better than practically any television on the market that moves in this price range.
