    Hey guys,
    Im looking for recommendations for a monitor that takes advantage of all the benefits of having a PS4 Pro (4k, HDR etc). Looking at around the 32" mark in terms of size.

    Cheers in advance.

    If you want completely proper HDR, you'll need at the very least 750nit luminance. A lot of "HDR compatible" screens really arent, since they don't backlight strong enough, which washes everything out in HDR.

    Money is no object:

    Mid range:

    (I personally think this will not do HDR very well, it has the lowest luminance of the three)

    PS4?

    use a tv, there's no benefit going to a monitor IMO.

    Admittedly though, he might find more luck with true HDR monitors than TVs. (completely subjective opinion, only because I got scorched on a samsung I bought purporting to be HDR, but finding out after the fact that 261nit is too low for PS4 HDR)

    I game on a desk with the screen not too far away from me and i also will be using the same screen for my desktop to game as well so a monitor is prefered. I do understand where you are coming from though.

    thanks for the feed back guys. ill have a look into it

    aah ok then, well any PC monitor that does HDR would be my recommendation and has a size you are happy with. I thought you were using the monitor just for the PS4. HDR is the thing to look for everything else the PC will take bigger advantage of.

    there seems to be so many different version of HDR (10, 400, 1000 etc) and thats the part thats really confusing me. I really like the look of this on but im not really sure if the price is justifiable. As in is it necessary to spend that much to get all the features i want.

    32" is the size im after i think. I currently have a 43inch philips 4k (doesnt support hdr) and im looking to downsize

    it sounds similar to the 43 you are getting rid of but adds freesync and HDR10, I know the 40 was VA is the 43"?

    in that case it will depend on if VA suits you or not especially for your PC use.

    Hmm I have always gone with IPS purely because that’s usually what people recommend not really from person experience so I haven’t really had much to do with VA monitors

    98% of my gaming is done on the PS4 now days. Don’t really use my desktop for gaming and if I do it usually things like wow or heroes of the storm so nothing very graphically amazing

    HW unboxed did a nice video on different display types. I'm on the 40" version of what you have and it's VA, my work screens are VA as well. I'm happy, but i'm not as fussy as some.

    Awesome. I’ll have to good look at that after work. Thanks so much for your help mate. If you are interested I’ll be selling the 43inch once I decide on a monitor

    nah 40 is a perfect size believe it or not, it fits snugly on my desk next to an old 28" screen i have. i reckon my next panel will be something with adaptive refresh and hdr too.

    hope you find a nice screen, but then again it's hard not to these days they all seem pretty decent to me.
