I got four monitors so far, and none look as good as the ACER Predator XB273KP, but unfortunately, that died on me, and they won't fix it, so I need a replacement.
So far, I tried :

LG 27UL850
LG UltraGear 27GN950-B
HP U27
Acer Nitro XV2 XV282KKV

None.

Should I try GIGABYTE M28U? It has HDMI 2.1

Thank you
 
why looking at such small displays for console gaming?
and why the high refresh rates, do the PS5 games even offer high enough fps for greater than 60Hz support?

if looking to spend ~$1000,
4K TVs with HDMI 2.1 and bigger screens should be better value for console use.

for console\couch gaming, i would definitely be looking for >\= 47".

Hello,

I cannot play on big displays. The smaller the better. For me, those listed are the best sizes.

I actually haven't played on TV since 2006 :)

why?
are you living in a closet or cabinet with no space?
or is it something more of a vision issue?

it seems you're spending more for monitor features that your PS5 doesn't utilize.
refresh rates, response times, adaptive sync, and panel options that will never be taken advantage of.
of course if you're also using it for a computer system that would make sense.
but i really don't think any small TVs with modern tech are even being produced.
for HDMI 2.1, 120Hz, HDR the smallest out there seems to be in the >\= 50" range.

it seems to be the best priced monitor in this range i've seen in a while.
there's been quite a few mentions of it's budget "value" recently.
but the few reviews i'd seen of it mention the low color gamut and the minimal HDR brightness\color range.

i'd find a local store that has one on display and go check it out.

it's hard to determine what will look & work best for you by reading\listening to others or watching review videos.
you never know how the screen may actually look in your environment vs theirs.
