Is 1080p too much for 27''

post #1 of 43
Thread Starter 
Hi guys, simply put I was wondering if a 27'' monitor is to large for 1080p. Would it be to stretched, discolored etc.. Im looking at getting this one right here:

Thanks for the help!

Looks awesome. I like my 27 inch better than when I had my 3x 23 inch eyefinity setup.

BTW, that's the exact monitor I switched to.

1920x1200 is right on the edge of being too big on my 27''.

Personally, I'd get a 25.5'' monitor for 1080p.

Yeah I deffinatley prefer one monitor to eyefinity, somehow seems distracting. Anyways, how is you monitor? Had any issues with it resolution-wise vs your original 23''? Cause thats the size I have right now

I've had no issues at all. In fact, I've enjoyed every minute of it - games look awesome, color is pretty great for a TN panel, no ghosting, blacks look good, minimal bleeding, viewing angles are one of the best I've seen on an LCD, etc. I'd recommend the product.

Yeah, Im not to picky, if there is no noticeable difference then that's fine with me. I sit 2ft away from my monitor if that makes a difference.

1080p is getting close to not enough for a 27". No monitor is "stretched" when you run it at the recommended resolution.

27" i would say is the biggest you would want for 1080p
I have planar 27" 1080p, 2 of them. They look amazing, so i say, go for it.
