I didn't see a technology section and this isn't PC related. This place has a larger userbase than other forums I visit. Anyway I have a regular PS4 at the moment, will have PS5 someday. I currently use a 23" 1080p monitor I got midway through the PS3 gen, it's a Samsung hybrid monitor/TV sort of thing. Still works great but I'm toying with the idea of trying 4k. My problem is TV's are too damn big. With my current setup I probably wouldn't want to go over 27-30 inches. Only sit a couple feet away.
So I'm limited to the monitor section and most of my searching has given me info based on PC use. I dunno if I need to look for or avoid anything to be compatible with consoles specifically. HDR sounds important except some places said monitors may not get bright enough to fully experience it. Refresh rates, panel types... I know none offer optical out for my receiver so I'll get one of those extractors unless that's a bad idea. Thought maybe someone could offer a suggestion or something. Nothing that costs thousands, and while I'm partial to Samsung (I have a GXTV from the 90's that still works) I'm open to other reasonable brands. If it turns out I'm not missing much then that works too.
