Automated consumer guidance - A suggestion

Hey SD crew,

I've been perusing the slew of monitor posts on hot deals over the last few days and the same questions have been getting asked.
  • Is this good for gaming?
  • Is this good for work?
  • How are the viewing angles?

And, I'm thinking that SD could clean up the engagement in an automated fashion by developing guidance in the OP based on the specs of the items in question. This extends beyond monitors, and could be useful in tech.

An example: Someone posts "LG 27" IPS 144hz 250nits 4k monitor" or whatever. And in the OP or even in the Q&A before going Popular/FP, SD could add:

"IPS typically have better viewing angles than VA monitors"
"144hz refresh rate is typically fast enough for gaming"
"4k resolution typically allows x-number of windows on one screen at a time"
"250 nits is lower than 65% of monitors similarly sized and may be dimmer than what is needed"

You get it. I feel like this could be really useful for people who may be looking to buy for an enthusiast but who are not enthusiasts themselves.
