How We Reviewed PS4 Monitors

The devil is in the details folks.

1

Image Quality - Visuals Are Everything

A gaming monitor should make your game come to life, immersing you in a new world, drawing you into the game. For instance, a monitor with 60 HZ refresh rate or higher means smooth images. And higher resolution means more image detail.

2

Features - Gaming Specific Advantages

We want all the extra features we can get to help make our games come to life. The more the better. Extras like AMD FreeSync insure that your games runs smooth with no stuttering, lag or ghosting. Some monitors even settings for specific games.

3

Performance - Smooth  Visuals

We want a lag free, smooth image with no tearing or other problems. Visuals should be smooth as butter. Once you tackle image quality and features, you have great performance.

4

Value - Price Sweetspot

We want a great value for our money spent. The more features and better performance you can get for a lower price, the better.

RESIDENT EXPERT CONSULTANT

  • Refresh Rate
  • Response Time
  • AMD FreeSync
  • G-Sync

Like AMD's Freesync, NVIDIA G-Sync is a display technology that delivers a smooth and fast gaming experience. It works by synchronizing display refresh rates to the GPU in your GeForce GTX-powered PC, eliminating screen tearing, stutter and input lag. None of our top picks have G-Sync by the way.
