80" PC monitor anyone?

At 1920x1080 : /
Still would look pretty impressive on the wall.

80" TVs have been around for a while, usually cost around $3000 and have way worse image quality than smaller counterparts. NEC is known for good image quality so I expect more from this. It will be hard for me to see this in person though, since Bestbuy and Costco don't carry NEC.

It uses a UV2A panel which is Sharp Electronics evolution of the VA panel... You don't see that used too often...

IMO PC's need a lower sized monitor with higher pixel density.

I would never play games on a TV. Monitors will always be superior in this regard.

I want a 65" 1440p for the living room.

80" is much too big for 1080p. You can start to see pixelation at around 60-65" at normal viewing distance.

Maybe in regards to pixel density, yes... but I have a desktop and living room gaming setup, both 1080p and 90% of my gaming is done in the living room 1080p LED. Big screen immersion ftw. I can max out games on both sets and the small, 27" monitor just doesn't cut it for true immersion and cinematic feel imo. Also, I rarely play multiplayer games, so the pinpoint twitch accuracy of kb/m means absolutely nothing to me. Gaming at a desk is just less immersive and not comfortable.

What about input lag?

What about input lag?


I notice none, at all, whatsoever... and keep in mind, I have both setups and game on both. The input lag is exactly the same on my Samsung 27" LED monitor as my Insignia 55" LED HDTV. Non-existent or low enough that I can't notice it at all on either set.

I mainly use my desktop rig for RTS and Diablo style games where kb/m is necessary, for all others I use the living room rig. It also helps that I have a 700 watt 6.1 Infinity surround system in my living room.... and with 2-4X AA and all other filters on, it takes away most of the "jagginess" that would normally come with gaming on a bigger screen.

I've even tried 1440p on a friends setup. I like big screen couch gaming much, much more than even that setup. I just can't do small screens, and multiple monitors suck also because of bezels and you are still stuck in a computer chair instead of a nice, comfortable couch. When 4k becomes affordable, I will build a new rig around a 60" 4k set and that will be the next step up..

What about FPS games?
