Any monitor with a response time of 5ms or less should do

PS4 is really designed for a TV though

So would I be better getting a cheap tv ? She already has one but she is at uni so they share to tv in a house of five, so the monitor really was for her personal room where she shoots and kills things. ( I think she may be evil )   :laugh:

 The one I was looking at has a 1ms so I guess that is good ?

Best solution would be a decent Full HD (1920x1080) TV mate, most monitors don't have speakers or even audio outputs (that ACER doesn't have any listed in the specs).
If it's small-ish, say up to 28" it could probably double up as a dual display with her iMac, but I wouldn't use that as a main reason. For that it would have to be Full HD (1920x1080) minimum, but lots of smaller TV's are only HD 'Ready' with a lower res of 1280x720, so could look a bit shit up close next to a decent laptop display.

Yup, I forgot that most monitors don't have speakers, and if they do, they are very weak in reality. TVs are made obviously for TV shows mainly, but can be used for consoles

Someone's chancing their arm. Don't know about fooling anyone as it clearly states what it is.

Yesterday's approaching thunderstorm in Buenos Aires. It was certainly noisy.

You're so out of date.
These days it's called a non-binary, gender fluid, paternal + ship.

I don't think you want it to happen. It's things like boxes of polystyrene pellets and stuff that people tend to receive just so there vendor can increase their presence.

I would just sell them on ebay for a marked down price, lol, hence the reason why it didn't happen to me

If Ellen Paige can identify as non-binary yet still wish to be referred to as he-they, I can definitely identify as an attack helicopter.

Our tree is up, the deccies are in place and Christmas has arrived at The Keasies.

So today we're going to watch a festive film. We have breaded stuffed mushrooms, chicken popcorn, chicken strips and cheddar cheese and ham croquettes all with dips.
Washed down with Irn Bru and a selection of crackers and cheeses... cracked black pepper cheese, smoked Austrian cheese and double Gloucester with chives.

Then this evening...cava, prosecco and cider.
 :afro: chilled man, total chilled.  :afro:

It's been a cunt of a week at work. Half our staff are off with covid, my entire ward is now covid patients and they're gubbed. I've literally been manually moving them out of bed to administer their therapy and I'm fucking knackered. Only been two physio staff to 20 patients every fucking day.

So I'm well looking forward to this wee chill day.  :cool:

Apologies,
