my pc monitor is better than my tv. also it's hooked up to better speakers than my tv. i want to connect my switch and ps4 to my monitor but it only has one hdmi input. the most i usually see on monitors is 2 which still isn't enough.. is an hdmi switcher/matrix the best option ? or just deal with the inferior tv for console peasantry ?

I have an HDMI switch that works quite well.
It's a trick, get an axe.

I don't have a monitor anymore. Computing happens on my laptop, while gaming happens on my TV. Different machines with different purposes.

I guess I still have a dusty old 1600x900 monitor sitting around somewhere...

I've used this:

Detects whatever signal is currently on and displays that, so if you have the PC on it will auto display to the monitor, if you have the PS4 on it will display. If you want to leave the PC on and go to a console it has a button for switching between ports.
