During the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Nevada, Samsung unveiled a television set it’s calling “The Wall,” and for good reason. The behemoth MicroLED television measures at 219 inches. Or In other words, 18 feet. And here’s the real kicker: it apparently creates a brighter image while using less energy than current and standard televisions.
Additional details are currently scarce, but we should expect to hear more about the new product soon.
Of course, if you play games, you’ll know a 219-inch television won’t be very practical for the hobby. In fact, large televisions in general aren’t great for gaming, especially competitive gaming. The bigger the TV, the farther you have to sit back, otherwise you’ll be sacrificing valuable information on screen. And that’s why competitive gaming is on smaller monitors.
For example, if you’re playing FIFA 19 on a 50 inch monitor, you’re going to have to sit farther away in order to properly register everything that’s going on the screen. In fact, sitting too close to a larger screen will often give players headaches or make them feel nauseous.
