If my calculations are right, they announce pre-order every third Thursday of the month and the PO itself is on the following Friday. Which means expect it on Friday next week?

I guess it all depends on your budget and how far away you wanna sit. If you want 4k 120hz, then you have no choice but to get either a TV that cost at least 4.3-4.4k after Shopee cashback or wait for HDMI 2.1 monitor to reach Malaysia. The cheapest monitor should be LG 27GP950-B which currently retails for $900 and those are constantly sold out minutes after they restock.
For me:

If you don't mind 1080p 120hz, you wanna sit on your computer desk and use the monitor for PC gaming as well. You could get budget 1440p 144hz+ monitor that ranges from 1.1k-1.5k like 27" or 32" Odyssey G5 or Lenovo G27q-20. Most monitor could downscale the 4k60 signal from the PS5 to 1440p60 and it would also switch to 1080p120 if you are playing COD multiplayer. We could only pray and hope that Sony would add 1440p support like XSX.
If you aren't upgrading your main TV in living room and just wish to have a TV in your room for console gaming with the occasional Netflix.

LG 48" C1 (RM5400 with cashback) for 4k120 and OLED
Budget conscious: Any 4k60fps TV that's around 43" - Try to get one that have Android, my suggestion would be the 43" Mi TV P1 with Android 10 (RM1350 with cashback). By mounting that on a RM150 mobile TV stand, you can move it anywhere in your room and have it position about 1.3m from you for optimal viewing  thumbup.gif
If you want to replace your living room TV, then you probably want at least 55". You could increase the size if your budget allows.

4k60: 55" Sony X80J or X80H if you can find one for a good price
4k120: 55" LG C1/CX
Budget conscious 4k120: 55" Sony X90J (RM4400 with cashback) or X90H if you could still find one

Thank you so much for the write up man, will consider it notworthy.gif notworthy.gif
