Not every game is going to be impacted by this, mostly FPS or anything with fast action, you will notice a "ghosting" effect on the screen, or a blur, this is because the TV response time is too slow to keep the image clear.

That is the only differenc between them, period, lock thread,

 

Are you comparing his TV and his monitor? Because the response time is not the only difference between those two specific models. One is 720p and the other 1080p, that's a huge difference. One has a total of 1280x720 physical pixels on screen, and the other 1920x1080 pixels. The technology that is LCD is the same, but the two models he has are very different. Not only do they have different resolutions, but the smaller screen has the higher resolution, meaning it will be much sharper.

I was speaking generaly, a 1080p native monitor versus a 1080p lcd TV, the monitor is probably still going to win out on response time unless you bought a high end tv, I wasnt refering to his EXACT tv.

Ok, then yes you are correct. Usually though, the 1080p monitor will be of a smaller size than the 1080p TV, which means the monitor would be sharper. But if you compare a 1080p monitor with a 1080p TV and they are the same size, then they are basically the same thing, except for the slight response time difference.

Most people don't get "decent PC monitors". They get cheaper re-branded TV panels sold as PC monitors.

Also, "response time" is a made up sales and marketing number. I wouldn't base anything from that number as reported by the manufacturer, particularly LCD monitor quality.

I cant figure out what is better.

 

Whats wierd is the tv can be set to all the HD resolution 1080p or 720 etc... or just basic 1366x768 even though specs on tv say 1366x768 max....

Do i set it to basic or HD resolution. And if I use the tv will i see a major difference in gaming from the monitor?

720p is in fact 1080i so that is 1920x1080

I use a 32 inch tv as my monitorand have it sitting around 3 feet from me looks great in games.

In a way you are right, the larger the display the more blown up the image, however if you alter your viewing distance, that distortion will be corrected, people were never intended to sit 3 feet in front of a 40 inch lcd tv lol

And to the OP:

You can set your resolution to anything that it lets you - the worst that happens is the screen will just go blank (possibly say "No signal"), and the "Click OK to keep this resolution" box will time out and bring you back to where you were before.

You won't break anything. Use whatever looks the best to you.

I have a 720p TV. It will let me select 1080i, even though it can't actually display 1080. The picture looks the same, the PC just has to work four times harder (it's calculating 4 times as many pixels only to have them ignored by the TV).

Technically, 720p is a better signal than 1080i: it has more bandwidth. It's fewer pixels per viewing area, but they are getting refreshed more often. Most PC's won't even offer to display in 1080i/720i - it's mainly cable/satellite companies that will broadcast at those resolutions on order to save on their bandwidth (so they can offer more channels).

errr not quite, the p and the i stand for progressive scan and interlaced which are two VERY different image rendering methods, progressive being the clear winner over interlaced, its often better to display in 720p rather than 1080i as the interlacing creates digital artifacts on LCD displays.

These days your comments about response time can be true, but usualy only on lower quality mass produced panels. if you spend the money you get what you pay for, period.

Well generally speaking response time shouldnt be in the top reasons you buy a display.  And most TV's these days run under 10ms which for most gamers is perfectly fine.

You can't run into a thread say people are spreading misinformation when you don't even touch on the OPs personal topic. Each persons circumstance is different when it comes to displays and you have to take it case by case. Response time is almost never an issue unless you're one of the anal people who are trying to hard to prove you can see the difference in 2ms and 5ms.

No, 720p is not 1080i.

720p is a resolution of 1280x720, with a refresh scan pattern that is progressive/non-interlaced (the entire screen is refreshed each refresh cycle).

1080i is a resolution of 1920x1080, with a refresh scan pattern that is interlaced (only every other line gets refreshed each refresh cycle, so the entire picture is actually only updated every two refresh periods).

PCs almost never output interlaced, and usually will have a refresh rate of 60 or 75Hz (depending on the monitor). TV signals are often interlaced, and usually refresh at a rate of 29.97Hz (for North America TV broadcasts)

Speaking on specifications, im correct, if you wanna take the opinion that a 35 mpg car is only slightly better than a 37 mpg car and is negligent, fine, but its still better, as is a 2ms monitor when compared to a tv which is probably in the double digit ms response rate bracket (which being 720p max res, his tv probably is).

Also if you want me to get on HIS situation, his tv is shit, he should go with the monitor, case closed...

Well generally speaking response time shouldnt be in the top reasons you buy a display.  And most TV's these days run under 10ms which for most gamers is perfectly fine.

You can't run into a thread say people are spreading misinformation when you don't even touch on the OPs personal topic. Each persons circumstance is different when it comes to displays and you have to take it case by case. Response time is almost never an issue unless you're one of the anal people who are trying to hard to prove you can see the difference in 2ms and 5ms.

Speaking on specifications, im correct, if you wanna take the opinion that a 35 mpg car is only slightly better than a 37 mpg car and is negligent, fine, but its still better, as is a 2ms monitor when compared to a tv which is probably in the double digit ms response rate bracket (which being 720p max res, his tv probably is).

Why do people want to compare everything to cars? It doesn't make sense. You can actually break down the benefit of 35mpg and 37mpg to the dollar over x amount of years.

Trying to see the difference of a few ms is not so much cut and dry and it varies from person to person.

Only major difference between an LCD tv and an LCD computer monitor is response times, TV's generaly have poor response times when compared to decent PC monitors, for instance a good lcd monitor will have a 2ms or less response time while a TV would have a much higher response time, some older LCD tv's can even get into the double digits for response times. 

Not every game is going to be impacted by this, mostly FPS or anything with fast action, you will notice a "ghosting" effect on the screen, or a blur, this is because the TV response time is too slow to keep the image clear.

That is the only differenc between them, period, lock thread,

 

Are you comparing his TV and his monitor? Because the response time is not the only difference between those two specific models. One is 720p and the other 1080p, that's a huge difference. One has a total of 1280x720 physical pixels on screen, and the other 1920x1080 pixels. The technology that is LCD is the same, but the two models he has are very different. Not only do they have different resolutions, but the smaller screen has the higher resolution, meaning it will be much sharper.

Really? ok mister forum police, whatever I answered the OP's question, his cheap old 720p limited TV is a far worse option when compared to a 23 inch 1080p capable monitor......

Not to mention that if you look at the manufacturer's own specifications, they probably have 2 or 3 different numbers for that listed in various places, and none of them match with any consistency, and all of them would be different from the ISO standard for measuring pixel refresh times.

The correct answer to the OP is:
Whichever looks better to him.

If he likes the additional size of the TV, even though it's a lower resolution screen - who's to say he's wrong. Every eye is different, and everyone has different tastes.

Whoa this got crazy fast... 

as others have pointed out 720p and 1080i are not in any way shape or form the same thing lol... 

Response time variances between TV's and Monitors have become negligible. There once was a noticable difference, but with any TV's in the past few years with the exception of some really cheap odd off brand models this is no longer the case. 

 

TV's can be just as sharp and crisp as a monitor if tweaked correctly. 

 

If your TV's native resolution is 720p then you want to set it to that, if you don't believe me then set it to 1366x768 and launch steam. 

 

If the icons are to big at 720p go to control panel, display settings, and then go to "Make text and items larger or smaller" and simply select smaller. If the issue is in game then reduce UI size, pretty much every game has the option. 

 

The main issue with using non native resolutions is that text is promblematic on TV screens. This is a general rule but it doesn't always hold true though, if text and everything is fine inside and out side of games with 1366x768 then by all means use it because there are exceptions to every rule. Every TV is different, it really depends on the brand and the specific model. If your TV lets you get away with 1080p then again use it because again not all TV's are created equal. 

 

I have a 55inch TV I use when I feel like kicking back and using my Razer Onza and its got a much better picture than my monitor and no I'm not using a cheap generic monitor lol. I simply have a very nice TV and know what I'm doing when setting these things up :) 

 

And again... response time differences now days are negligible.

I don't know if that's what it's doing.  It's surely possible for a video card to make that adjustment and then transmit the 720p image; I don't know if TVs would have that capability, but they could build TVs to do that if they wanted to.

Yeah my old TV was 720p but 1080i.

the point HERE is his tv....sounds like a peice of shit.....so yeah monitor is probably his best bet...

Ha exactly.  I had fun playing it even at 720. . if you enjoy something more than something else. . who cares which is technically superior :)

Odd you make that comment... 

 

I posted factual information and you posted "His TV sounds like a piece of crap so monitor is probably better". 

But yes in the end it is about what you want, if you want to use the monitor use the monitor. If you want to use the TV, then use the TV. 

Another option is to simply hook both up and swap around when you feel like it. Game on one while watching a movie on the other or what ever. 

Find the option that suites you best.
