It's not exactly a secret that the PlayStation 5 is a hard-to-find console and has been since the day it launched.

How to Choose the Right Gaming Monitor for Your PS5

How to Choose the Right Gaming Monitor for Your PS5

When choosing a gaming monitor for your PS5, the first thing to remember is that Sony designed the PS5 knowing it is primarily used in living rooms (via BBC). This means displays best suited for the console align with standard TV resolutions and 16:9 or 21:9 widescreen aspect ratios.
