How far away from the monitor are you? I made the switch from TV to monitor when I bought my XIM3 and I believe itís way better. I did have to go from couch gaming to sitting at my desk but the performance is night and day difference.

2 to 3' I guess, I never tried it in the beta [cod] ,  on bf5 even lowering the fov I just cant see that good.

I said the desk and relatively close to the monitor. If there is a field of view change I donít play at high numbers. The other big thing you may want to do is go see your eye doctor. Donít know about you but Iím old my eyes arenít as good as it used to be. Ha ha ha

what I mean is I play on a 55" gaming tv,  I mostly play bf5 untill the new cod drops.  on my tv I can see people head glitching across the map, on my monitor I cant see anyone unless there right up on me.

I game on a 49" TV.  On game mode my TV has very good input lag so it works fine, just have to sit a little farther from the screen.

I actually have the same problem on BF5... can't see anyone even if they are right in front of me proning.
It's not only me, even my friend can't see sh!t lol... I think it's a BF5 thing.
Are you sure it was fine before?
Then maybe it could be a matter of colors or something...

idk really, I've been playing bf5 for the past 6 months with a fov of 74 [only had monitor about 5 months] . it might not be as big as issue when the new cod drops because its no where near a 74, more like a 54. lol

This is one of the advantages of TVs you can identify targets at a distance easier than a monitor, I still prefer a monitor but it's only because I can't afford a huge gaming monitor like the 43" 4K one somebody else posted in this forum.

I would say depending on game big screen are better, some are not, watching a minimap on a big TV is much harder while still also looking at the enviroment, there's more eye movement.

Like others have stated enemies are hard to see in BF5 in general... Due to the nature of the game with the huge maps and tons of places to hide it's very easy to have someone proned out right in front of you or or hiding in a corner and completely miss them.  Good game but yeah it was always an issue for me in that  game.
