    Monitor.

    My TV isnt suited very well for pc gaming, ive tried it. My monitor has higher quality , faster response time,higher resolution and Hz. always have to use under/overscan.
    I also play some FPS online where i prefer to use a mouse and keyboard on my desk.
    Sitting / laying on the couch is much more relaxed though. Which i do with my consoles.
    I do have a pc hooked up to my TV though, mainly for music and movies.
    Got a few games installed , but i rather not game on that, since its got my 4870x2 (aka the Boeing 747) in it. :D

    IPS 16:10 Panels galore do have a IPS First Gen Full Array LED LCD which I been having a hard time upgrading most new TV's are actually lacking less ports (HDMI) and cheap Edge Lit. For 3 years old I am surprised how backwards TV tech has been going compared to 3 yr old High END.

    Only things TVs have changed is HZ non sensible rating of Contrast Ratio To find Actual Typical Contrast/Brightness is a pain in the ass. Most TVs touting over 120hz use a Simulated 240-480hz and not true levels. Tvs are getting lighter but so are the specs as well. unless u want a 50-80 TV then we are pretty much the same or better but if ur like me and have a limited spot for a TV. Smart TV and 3D are both functions I dont use either so hmm

    Didn't even have to. Once I enabled it's overdrive feature in Counter-Strike: GO and some UT/Quake I instantly noticed it was a bit snappier then the Samsung.

    As far as I can remember the fastest 27 inch monitors are the iiyama and the ASUS. The Benq 24 inch was a tiny wee bit faster.

    Without Overdrive it's average but once enabled it's really nice. The review is in dutch, look for the "Reactietijd OD".

    Any game that requires a mouse and Keyboard, my 28in Hanns-G does the job.

    Any game that works with a xbox 360 joybad, my 60 in plasma.
