From what I understand text is rather small at 27" 25 x 14, but you'd have to ask someone who owns one just how much of a "problem" it is. If you have bad eyesight it may be something to consider.
yeah i realised my noobish error much later after posting that, but im not oging to bother editing it.

I do have bad eyesight, however i wear prescription glasses which clear things up perfectly, so it should be ok.

if i REALLY needed to i could simply change the dpi on my browser, yes?


depending on the prices i find, which so far seem unnervingly high, i may just go with 1080p, 120hz.

I was hoping for more screen realestate but incresed refreshrate may be a cheaper alternative.

If you don't mind buying used you can get a 3007wfp or a 3008wfp for around $700-$800.

It's not a problem. At all. I've noticed no difference between 1050, 1080, and 1440. None.

Please, never come to this section ever again. It's quite apparent you don't know what you're talking about. That's like saying you could buy a Veyron but a ford focus is good enough.
