Optimal Size for Full HD resolution : 27" or 24" ? - Page 2

post #11 of 17
I love low dot pitch, so I'd say 24".

I have 1680x1050 running on my 22" and it's simply too pixelated.

I speak of my own experience: I do not find dot pitch size make a difference in reading texts. And, I also do not need to apply a higher level of AA to the 27''. It is not that using 24'' would ease off the level of AA, if needed.
The biggest difference between 1080p at 24'' and 1080p at 27'' comes in those extra 3'' diagonal. The larger screen size enhances noticeably the visual experience (ie immersion). This factor outweighs the dot pitch and aliasing.

I agree that a bigger monitor is good no matter what.

But I do find Aliasing more noticeable on 27" 1080p monitors.

That's not a bad thing though - it just means you're seeing more of the game, more subtle details, and that's what immersion actually is.

Now sure, it would be nice to have a 4MP resolution at 24"+, but with 4xAA, I think the difference would be minimal.

Mostly a matter of preference. It took me a (brief) while to adjust to my 23" @ 1080p from my laptop's 15.6" 1080p screen.
Do I notice more pixels? Well, for the first few minutes, yes. But The size of the screen far outweighed that. Games might have (relatively) considerably more aliased edges at 27" but i doubt you will find this irritating since you have the GPU power to push a little more AA. Quite frankly though, its not nearly as bad as it might sound - for me at least.
Distance from the screen plays a HUGE role in how you will perceive both screens so take that into consideration. If the screen will be about 2-4 feet from you, then imo, go for the 24" @1080p or a higher resolution for the 27".
... and if the higher resolution makes your framerates suffer too much... well.... then you've just found a new excuse to throw another card in your rig

the sharpness value in the profiles of monitor is not important ?
reducing this value the aliasing is not better ?

When I went from my 21.5in lcd (finally died) to my 50in plasma - I could see so much more detail in the environment, especially useful with a lot going on on-screen. I really love it. I sit 5 feet away from my 50in and was sitting 1.5-2ft from my 21.5in lcd. Actually, the maximum distance for me to read text on my 50in is 5ft, minimum 3ft (but start to see the pixels sometimes).

I'm personally debating getting the Samsung LED 24" w/ HDTV and vesa mountable, or the 27" without either... or waiting for the new 3D HDTV monitors next month. They are 24"/27" with or without HDTV and all have 120hz/3d capable with built-in IR emitter (no need for 3dvision bundle).
