The PS4 is the best-selling gaming console on the planet for two reasons: Robust performance & powerful graphics. Not to mention it has all the best game titles available on its platform. So to take full advantage of all blueberries, you need a monitor that can compliment your PS4.
Today’s TVs are too expensive. They come with a higher input lag which matters if you are into online multiplayer gaming. So I have done this work for you. After researching over 19 different monitors advertised as console monitors, these are my top 3 picks.
Following monitors render the lowest 1ms input lag, beautiful color output, and sure value for your money.
REVIEWS: Best monitors for PS4 Pro & Slim in India
Best 28″ 4K monitor for PS4 Pro console
- 28″ TN Display
- High Dynamic Range (HDR)
- Auto-Brightness Intelligence
- 1ms response, 60Hz FPS
- AMD Free Sync
- HDMI, DP 1.4
The BenQ EL2870U is the best budget 4K monitor you can get in India right now. First off, it has an inbuilt brightness intelligence that ( similar to our smartphone auto-brightness) works to adjust the display brightness according to the surrounding.
It has only a 1ms response time that renders lag-free performance when playing Fortnite. Since PS4 PRO supports HDR and this monitor has it, you can expect improved dark and bright scene balance resulting in better depth perception.
However, the color stability is just as you would expect in a budget display, i.e., they are a little saturated and average. As an IPS panel, it should have had decent 180-degree viewing angles, but that’s not the case here, and a lot of users have complained of bad range.
And finally, the BenQ EL2870U monitor comes with a robust plastic stand with tilt adjustment only.

Moving forward is the 144Hz/1ms pace, which is another selling point for this model. You can sure experience silky smooth gaming time free of any tears and shears.
FAQs: Best monitor for PS4 consoles
1.What’s the main difference between PS4 Slim & PS4 Pro?
The absolute difference between PS4 Slim and Pro is of resolution. The Slim model outputs a maximum of 1080p resolution. Pro, on the contrary, renders a 4K HDR experience. If you already have a Slim, then it’s not much worth the Pro upgrade since both the models support the same library of games, and not all games are available in 4K.
2.Monitor or TV for PS4 gaming?
You must be knowing that monitors have a higher input response rate and frame rate than modern TVs. This feature comes in handy when you play online multiplayer games like Fortnite or something where input response matters. Plus monitors are more expensive than TVs. So if you play esports, then choose a monitor.
3.Is it worth buying a monitor for the PS4 console?
As I mentioned in the above answer, monitors have a superior response rates and refresh rates. So if you play a lot of online multiplayer games, then choose a monitor. For a Pro model, you will best suit a 4K HDR monitor like the one above, and if you have a slim model, then an FHD monitor is sufficient.
