Haha. Its crazy how fast TV and monitor sizes move up. I think 32" would be the max I would want to use as a monitor.

And my TVs are all well larger than that but I am sure some people still roll such small TVs

I could live with smaller, but I don't have to - and once you start using a larger screen you get used to it very quickly.

I'd never ever had a limit.....I always wished for bigger and bigger screens. 40 might be my limit though.

After a certain point, sitting at a desk with a monitor, if you are having to move your head side to side to see whats going on, then its too big.

I use a 1080P 60Hz 32" TV. Suits me just fine.

Even up to 40" I've never had to do that, that I know of.

But why is that a measure of anything anyways, perhaps it's good to exercise and move your neck/head anyways

Well, Ill never buy an Ultrawide and I used to use dual 24's back in 1080P days. I could maybe do dual 27's but at that point, its too much for me.

Could notice the difference between 1440p and 4k

I would still aim for 1440p at higher refreash then 4k I think it's the sweet spot for another year or so.

4k looks glorious but being stuck at 60fps for the moment is a bit of a downer

1440P definitely looks soft on my screen.

very hard to choose monitors i find. so much choice. looking at 1440p b4 going 4k... should be more 4k to choose from later on. still 4k is tempting, particularly if u have the gcard to run it.

op already had 1440p . probly should go to 4k

4K is very nice if you don't mind the drop in frames. I use my 43" 4K screen for when I want things to look sexy and my 1440p TN panel when I need the frame rate.

I used to put up a ~100" 1080p image to my wall with a projector but haven't been able to since I moved. Was acceptable enough with a lot of AA/DSR.

I've got 43" main and 30" secondary to the left. The only reason I didn't go for another 43" is the wall is in the way lol
