Gaming TV Recommendation Thomas emailed, “I am planning on downsizing my life and moving in to a tiny home or an RV for full time living. I am a big gamer but because of the size limitations of an RV or a tiny home i don't want a TV and then a monitor as well. I know that you can get TV tuners for your computer but monitors are way more expensive then a TV. I want to get a 50+ inch TV, would love 60hz+ and would need enough inputs for my computer, Roku, PS4, and PS3.” Our picks are in the video, and check out the excellent “The 7 Best 4k Gaming TVs - Winter 2019” at!
