The best TV for gaming

For the best gaming experience, it's important that your TV has a low input lag. This feature determines the delay between your controller and the action on the screen. The lower the lag, the faster a game responds to your commands. To help you with your choice, I've collected 3 recommendations.

Choose your ideal size

Most televisions are available in various sizes. These sizes are indicated in inches. To determine the best size for your room, you should measure the distance between your viewing position and your current TV in centimeters. Multiply this number by 0.2 to find your ideal size in inches. If your viewing distance is, let's say, 2 meters, a 40-inch TV is the best choice. Do note that this is simply a guideline. You can opt for a television that's a couple inches bigger or smaller without experiencing any problems.
