Is 1080p too much for 27'' - Page 4

post #31 of 43
I use a 40" TV, u3011 and u2407 as computer monitors on a daily basis. Do I think that 1080P is not enough for a 27" monitor? absolutely not.

I have a 23" 2048x1152 and a 30" 2560x1600. I couldn't imagine having just 1920x1080 on a 27" screen, it looks so blocky (we have a 26 or 27" 1080p screen at work).
I thought the same thing.

I actually just switched from 2x23" to a 27" @ 1080p and it looks amazing. Some people say that they don't like the pixel density on a screen this size but I currently own an HP workstation laptop at 1920x1200 on a 15.4" screen and the 27" @1080p doesn't bother me one bit. The text is crisp and gaming is awesome. I say go for it!

I'm happy using a 37" on hdmi 1080p.. never enjoyed FPS so much [3D capable to boot..havent gone there yet though]..

What do you gain from the larger size though? There's no advantage to a larger screen with the same resolution. There's plenty of disadvantages though. Such as the increased price, it takes up more desk space, it's harder to clean, and it has a higher pixel pitch. I realize you can just increase your viewing distance and it will visually look the same as a 23" at a closer viewing distance so the pixel pitch difference isn't that big of a deal IF you have a deep enough desk to allow you to do this. So what's the point in spending more money for no gain?

flat screen.. + wall etc. = no desk space

* I have a bad eyes too ..so +1080 still looks like 1080 to me
post #38 of 43
IMO the larger size looks better for the distance that I am comfortable sitting at. Also, I purchased my monitor for $135.99 open box from Newegg and it's brand new. So I see nothing but win in my situation

EDIT: CL3P20, at your sig.

You can mount your screen on your wall but where you have to sit to use your keyboard/mouse will not change. If you had a tiny desk then you'd need to leave a space in between the back of the desk and the wall to get the right viewing distance

Perhaps I'm misinterpreting what you were trying to say though

27" would be fine, but you wouldn't want any bigger at that res.
