never buy an ultra-wide or have dual displays then...
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
move back a lil ?
I'm pondering wall mounting my screen so I can change desks.
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
Wow - at 22 PPI i hope you were sitting a looooooong way back from that picture.
Nah I was staring directly into the lens
Sadly 3440x1440 isn't a 16:9 ratio which can be a deal breaker for some, especially if they watch allot of media.
This. You really really do.
It was only about 15~ years ago I was running with a 17" 1024x768 monitor.
Then I upgraded to a 19" 1366x768 monitor.
Then a 23.6" 1920x1080 monitor.
Then a 27" 1920x1080 monitor.
Then a 31.5" 2560x1440 monitor.
And I will probably go with a 40" 4k display one day.
Each and every time I got used to the bigger display size and loved it.
It wasn't long ago people were saying they wouldn't wish to go bigger than 24"... And I say to hell with that! I won't stop until it's the size of a billboard.
(Yes, this is in reference to monitors and monitors only.)
I find 1440P to be the sweet spot in terms of price/performance.
Even mid-range GPU's like the Radeon RX 580/Geforce 1060 is capable of driving most games at that resolution.
Still. I intend to go 4k eventually, but only when mid-range hardware is capable of driving it and when 120hz+ panels are common. This is my last 60hz monitor.
I've been looking at a 27" fps monitor recently and i've found the following traits:
$690 - $780
$900 - $1100
What i'm struggling with that's holding me back from making a decision is A) is there a noticeable difference between 1ms and 4/5ms and B) does a VA/IPS screen provide a much better picture?
If you run with 2 x 24 1080p inch monitors, its the same pixel density as 1 x 48" 4K, takes up the same horizontal space (probably less depending on bezel sizes) and as an added bonus u get twice the vertical real estate.
