Not the 27gn950-b because only 60hz max refresh rate by hdmi. 27gl850-b is good, i would say 27gp850-b. you can check this for PS5: https://www.rtings.com/monitor/reviews/best/ps5 and XBOX Series X https://www.rtings.com/monitor/reviews/best/xbox-series-x-s

What do you guys think of the Samsung 




I now have a ps5 as well as an Xbox series.

and there are some new OLED monitors coming around from other manufacturers. Mini LED monitors are floating around as well. At this point in the game a monitor is going to be a major investment in my book.

Wait CES23 for news innovations...

i'm using an LG 48cx oled tv, colors and deep black are really good for movies first and second response time for gaming but you have to take care of the panel risk of burning not easy when you play a lot.

on PC i'm using AW2723DF ips 280hz 1440p, colors and black are "shits" compare to oled, i don't know about mini led but looks better quality than ips va lcd panel.

some 4k120hz monitors tv here sorted by input lag https://www.rtings.com/monitor/tools/table/100914

some advice for oled tv monitor:

OLED Image Retention or Burn-In: Burn-in and image retention are possible on virtually any display. However, with an LG OLED TV or monitor, any risk of burn-in or image retention has been addressed through the use of technology that not only helps protect against damage to the screen but features self-healing properties so that any short-term image retention that may occur is quickly rectified. It is rare for an average TV consumer to create an environment that could result in burn-in. Most cases of burn-in in televisions are a result of static images or on-screen elements displaying on the screen uninterrupted for many hours or days at a time – with brightness typically at peak levels. So, it is possible to create image retention in almost any display if one tries hard enough. And even if image retention does occur from extreme usage, it can usually be mitigated within a short period by turning the display off for a while, and watching a few hours of varying content (such as your standard TV or monitor viewing or channel-surfing).

Additionally, LG OLED TVs and monitors come with special features and settings to preserve image quality and prevent burn-in and image retention. First, there is a Screen Saver feature that will turn on automatically if the TV detects that a static image is displayed on the screen after approximately two minutes. There are also three options (available in Menu setting > Picture settings > OLED panel settings) that can be used to preserve image quality. The first of these is the Clear Panel Noise feature which preserves the quality of the image on the display panel by resetting the TV so that it clears the pixels. This feature can be turned on when needed within the settings mentioned above. The second feature that can be employed is the Screen Shift feature which, moves the screen slightly at regular intervals to preserve image quality. A third option is the Logo Luminance Adjustment, which can detect static logos on the screen and reduce brightness to help decrease permanent image retention.

So, in short: Reasonable, responsible usage of your TV or monitor, combined with powerful image preservation abilities should result in a seamless home entertainment experience.

I haven't looked at the comparisons and other influence on the web...

I use a mid-range monitor: Asus VG27BQ in 2K on my Xbox one S and PC (without HDR) on COD.

it works very well without breaking the bank (400€ anyway)!

On console, the best is to take a monitor in line with the maximum specifications of the console.

It's so scalable that getting very high-end will have you banging your head against the wall a year later (3 months in fact)!
