The 4 Best Gaming Monitors For PS4 - Summer 2023 Reviews

Best Gaming Monitors For PS4

If you're still gaming with a PlayStation 4 and want a new display, getting a monitor is a good alternative to spending more on a TV. This is because monitors tend to have lower input lag for a more responsive feel, are smaller, and usually cost less. While virtually any monitor works with the PS4, there are some things you have to consider about the console before looking for a display. For example, the standard PS4 supports a 1080p resolution, while the PS4 Pro supports up to a 4k resolution, and neither model supports frame rates higher than 60 fps. It's also important to consider the monitor's response time at 60Hz, which dictates how well it handles motion with the PS4.

As the console has limited capabilities, you don't need a high-end display with a fast refresh rate and high resolution. That said, many 4k gaming monitors have features for the newer PS5, so it's worth considering those if you want something future-proof in case you plan on upgrading your console. Even if you want a gaming monitor with a high refresh rate, it's at least versatile if you want to connect a gaming PC alongside your PS4.

We've bought and tested over 290 monitors, and below, you'll find our top picks for the best monitors for both the PS4 and PS4 Pro. See our recommendations for the best budget and cheap gaming monitors, the best PS5 monitors, and the best 4k gaming monitors.

  1. Best Gaming Monitor For PS4

    The best monitor for PS4 that we've tested is the Gigabyte M27U. It's a 4k monitor meant for use with current-gen gaming consoles, but it still offers excellent gaming performance and doesn't cost as much as other high-end monitors. While its stand-out feature is HDMI 2.1 bandwidth, which the PS4 and PS4 Pro don't support anyway, you can at least take full advantage of the PS5 with this monitor if you want to get that console eventually. You can also get the 32-inch Gigabyte M32U if you want a bigger screen, but it costs more for minimal difference in performance.

    If you have the PS4 Pro, you won't have issues displaying 4k content on this monitor, and the high resolution delivers sharp detail and crisp images. The monitor has a great response time with 60Hz signals, resulting in minimal blur trail behind fast-moving objects. It also has a few extra gaming features that give you a competitive advantage, like virtual crosshairs that you can use to see opponents better in games.

  2. Best Mid-Range Gaming Monitor For PS4

    If you're looking for a cheaper monitor in the mid-range price category, consider the LG 27GP850-B, also sold as the 27GP83B-B at different retailers. It has a lower 1440p resolution than the Gigabyte M27U and doesn't have HDMI 2.1 bandwidth. This doesn't make a difference for gaming on the PS4, but it isn't as future-proof as the Gigabyte, as it can't take full advantage of the PS5. However, if you don't think you'll get the PS5 anytime soon, you can save money by getting this monitor.

    While the 1440p resolution doesn't produce crisp images like the 4k screen on the Gigabyte, the image clarity is still good. The monitor still displays 4k signals by downscaling them, and it upscales 1080p signals, meaning you can easily use it with the console. It also has great motion handling at 60Hz, so there's minimal blur trail behind fast-moving objects. If you find that the 27-inch screen is too small, you can also consider the bigger LG 32GP850-B, but with lower pixel density, images are less sharp, and the monitor also costs more.

  3. Best Budget Gaming Monitor For PS4

    If you're on a tighter budget, check out the Gigabyte M27Q P. It has a 1440p resolution like the LG 27GP850-B/27GP83B-B, but it's a slight step down in overall performance. This is because it has worse motion handling than the LG, but its response time at 60Hz is still good enough for gaming, and you won't notice too much blur with fast-moving objects.

    It can either downscale a 4k signal or upscale a 1080p signal, making it a great choice for the PS4 and PS4 Pro. Like the LG, it doesn't support HDMI 2.1 bandwidth either, so you might need to upgrade your monitor if you buy the PS5 in the future, but most low-cost monitors don't support HDMI 2.1 bandwidth anyways. It also has a few extra features to give you a competitive advantage over someone who uses a TV, as it has different crosshair modes, which are ideal for FPS games. This monitor is the newer version of the Gigabyte M27Q, which is available with different panels, and it's unclear which exact panel you'll get, so at least you know what you're getting with the M27Q P.

  4. Best Cheap Gaming Monitor For PS4

    If you want the best gaming monitor for PS4 that's simple and cheap, check out the Acer Nitro XF243Y Pbmiiprx. It has a smaller 24-inch screen and lower 1080p resolution compared to the Gigabyte M27Q P, which is what you have to expect for a low-cost display. Because the standard PS4 only supports a 1080p resolution and nothing higher, this is ideal if you have that console and don't want a monitor that has to upscale 1080p signals. You won't have any compatibility issues while using the console on this monitor, either.

    It offers great gaming performance with a good response time with 60Hz signals as long as you turn off any of the monitor's variable refresh rate (VRR) support. However, this doesn't make a difference, as the PS4 doesn't support VRR. It also has wide viewing angles, and despite its low cost, it has outstanding ergonomics that make it easy to adjust to your ideal viewing position.

Notable Mentions

  • Dell Alienware AW2724DM: The Dell Alienware AW2724DM is comparable to the LG 27GP850-B/27GP83B-B as it has similar specs and is in the same price range, but it has a terrible local dimming feature that's always on in HDR, which is disappointing for playing HDR games. See our review
  • Gigabyte G27Q: The Gigabyte G27Q is a great cheap gaming monitor with a higher resolution than the Acer Nitro XF243Y Pbmiiprx for more detailed images, but it has worse motion handling and costs more. See our review
  • Dell S2721QS: The Dell S2721QS is a low-cost 4k monitor in the same price range as the Gigabyte M27Q P, and it's a decent choice if you have the PS4 Pro as it has a 4k resolution. However, it isn't a dedicated gaming monitor, meaning it has worse motion handling than the Gigabyte. See our review
