Gaming on Smart TVs

In general, Smart TVs offer superior image quality compared to gaming monitors. This is especially true in the case of LG's latest OLED and IPS (QNED / MiniLED and NanoCell) models. As manufacturers continue to reduce the input lag of their latest TVs, and as the refresh rates of smart TVs increase in the last two years, TVs are becoming an apparent choice for gaming.
