    55" for a monitor is a bit.....extreme. You'd want to sit a fair distance back, which might be awkward depending on your setup.

    That's a massive difference in specs too, 1080p/4k, 35"/55", IPS/TN, among other things. Input lag is usually higher on a TV as well.

    You might want to have a long hard think about what you want exactly.

    If you're gaming, then something with the right adaptive sync implementation for your graphics card and a higher than normal refresh rate might be preferable (which rules TVs out).

    Looking at your last thread, you seem to have an AMD graphics card, so Freesync would be the way to go. That monitor you linked fits the Freesync bill, but tops out at 60Hz, the bottom of the barrel these days. A higher refresh rate to sync to your frames per second would result in a smoother experience, provided your PC can put enough frames out. It's also only 1080p on a 35" screen, which might not look crash hot compared to higher resolutions, but being in a gaming cockpit and potentially a longer distance away from the screen, you might not care that much!

    It can all be very subjective. Maybe pop into a local PC store with screens on display and eyeball some adaptive sync demos and larger 1080p monitors, see if you like 'em.

    Got to agree with Coconut Monkey

    It depends on the games you're playing and how hardcore you are, but the refresh rate and input lag would kill a lot of gaming options (Such as shooters and fighters) for a lot of people... since you'll really just have to lose out on milliseconds (Which doesn't sound like much... but it is)

    Agreed with the final point to see if you can try them out yourself
