Good day all.

So I am thinking to go from triple monitor set to a TV. The main reason is low fps using surround, especially at night. I have good performance if I'd fly with single monitor but when I use surround fps will drop by a half especially at night. I am hoping that TV will give me better fps. I hope. I know there are many topics about TVs but I am not really asking for a brand or type but what specs to look for.

I saw people were mentioning to look for 4:4:4 chroma at 30hz and 60hz, 30Hz hardware VSync etc. I am a bit confused about all that. So long story short, what kind of specs I will need to look at for a good sim TV. 

So far I am thinking to get OLED TV but I am note sure if 55" TV is going to be too big or if all OLED TVs for around $1500 have all features desired for simming. Is OLED worth a money at all? 

Thanks for looking.

Edward,

I don't know the technicalities around 4:4:4 but I'm told it improves text readability in Windows so given you still need to use the computer for general use make sure any TV has that capability. Unfortunately many specs don't include that feature so you need to tread carefully.

If you go for OLED the smallest screen is 55". But unless you're sitting in a pitch black room ask yourself if you need such inky blacks for flight sim. A good LCD TV will give very good images and sizes start at 40".

I'll leave others to discuss the merits of 30Hz. My current TV runs at 60Hz and is fine for my needs. I will be switching to a 32" UHD monitor in the near future.

A single display will give you vastly better fps than multiple displays. The big difference of course is you will be switching to UHD from Full HD. That will be impressive.

 Have a look at your three monitor resolution, assuming each is 1920x1080 results in 6,220,800 pixels. A 4k tv is 8,294,400 pixels, over 2 million more pixels than your current setup. If performance is currently a problem, going to a 4K OLED might make it worse.

Thanks. Good to know that. I have 65” LED on a wall, I may try to connect it and check how it will perform before I buy a new one.
