  1. The Display Unit – Get the right screen

You may choose to go for a gaming TV or a projector depending on the size of your gaming room. Whichever your choice you should consider features such as the size and resolution for clear display. The following is our recommendations:

  • Size: At least 60 inch – The bigger the better.
  • Resolution: UHD (Ultra High Definition) that supports 4K content.
  • Refresh Rate: 60Hz and low lag times

In the PC gaming world, high refresh rates are all the buzz for monitors, but the PS4 is generally limited to 60FPS so it doesn't need to go higher than that.

If you want the best image possible a 4K TV with HDR will be ideal – this can affect the price dramatically, for example, the flagship Q90R Flagship QLED will set you back around £2800 for the 65-inch model, and this can achieve a peak brightness of 2000 and ultra-low input lag of 14ms. Samsung has also implemented ALLM and VRR, so you can enjoy low latency and optimal refresh rates every time you fire up your console.

A more affordable option is the Samsung 55″ QLED Q60R TV priced at just £869 on Amazon and comes with full HDR support and a low input lag of 16.3 milliseconds
