The picture and everything seems flawless to me, but sometimes i'll shoot at an enemy and they don't die, instead they return fire and kill me. I assumed this was an internet issue, basically other peoples internet was better than mine. I have 60meg fibre optic.
Just so you know even when you change to a faster monitor this can still occur. Most modern games use some kind of lag compensation to make it fair for all players even if you have a slight ping disadvantage. In the old days this was not present and usually people with a low ping had a significant advantage over players with higher pings. If all the players present playing are on a very low ping connection like in a lan environment this doesn't happen at all since lag compensation does not have a large effect. But when there are players with high ping present on the server lag compensation can matter and sometimes this can result in these weird situations where you for instance move past a wall and still get headshotted while behind cover. So even if you have perfect ping if your opponents their ping is significantly worse it can still happen that you get these weird situations.
There are also situations when for instance your opponent is peaking you very quickly behind a wall memorizes your position and after going back behind the wall himself he will pre-shoot you. This goes beyond human reaction time and can seem like you or your hardware is too slow but in reality it is just a good play of your opponent.
Of course your tv could still have a big input delay and might influence your play. But do know buying a faster display will not fix these situations every time.
As for display recommendations a smaller monitor is not really suited if you sit far away from your screen which is typical when playing on a console. TN monitors are really bad if you have to play from a small angle because you will lose a lot of image clarity especially in darker scenes. Also do know that not all tv's have a really high latency and if they do it can sometimes be lessened by enabling game mode and disabling display enhancing features like motion interpolation. I am sorry I cannot give you any specific recommendations but I wish you good luck finding your display.
