Hopefully, my last thread on this topic...

So im planning on buying on of these monitors this weekend...which one do you think I should get...I have read many points in regard to 23" vs 27" inch 1080p monitors.

There is a $150 premium for the 27" version - but is it worth it? The 27" has higher pixel pitch than 23" (1080p). However it is 4" bigger...is bigger is always better?
  • S23A750D ($400). 1080p on 23" is better (higher pixel pitch). it's also $150 cheaper. just move your screen closer is need be.

  • S27A750D ($550). 1080p on 27" is fine (can't really notice the difference) $150 is worth the premium for the 4". just move the screen back if need be

FYI - I have a big desk...so moving the monitor around isn't a problem. I currently sit about 2-3 feet away from my 24".....

Bigger does not mean better. A 27inch is just monstrous on my table, and I cannot stand turning my head left and right and up to look around the screen, so I sent it back and got a 23inch which is perfect.

Take a measuring tape, and estimate the size of the monitor. Of course the pixels per inch for the 27inch (1080p) is definitely lower than a 23 inch.

I sit the same amount back from my 27" 950d. I don't have to turn my head web surfing, LOL.

When gaming, I go back a little farther to about 3ft.

Pixel pitch is a non-issue. On all the other monitors I've had, I had to use Windows cleartype to adjust text sharpness because I found it blurry. The 950d I did not. The text is clear and sharp right out of the box.

BTW - I currently have a 24" (IPS, 1200p)...do you think it makes a lot more sense to pair it with a screen/resolution closer to its size (23" 1080p) vs. one that is significantly bigger (27" 1080p)? Or does the size difference not really matter / not really an issue?

It shouldn't be a problem. Having identical size screens is only helpful if you're doing eyefinity with bezel compensation or you care that the screens don't look even on your desk. In other words, if your name isn't Adrian Monk, you shouldn't care

just got back from microcenter...and took a look at 27" and 23" both 1080p (however, neither the 750D/950D were on display)....omg...27" is def. blurry compared to 23"...the text wasn't as sharp...and it was obvious to me. if u push the 27" back..yeah ok..maybe its not as bad...but...either way..im going 23" thanks guys.

UPDATE: Comparison above was based on other brands/models...not Samsung 750D/950D. Now that I have seen both the 23" and 27" 750D..I will say that the Samsung s27a750D or 950D is one of the sharpest 27" monitors I have seen..even though it is only 1080p. This is one of the rare monitors, I would seriously think about getting 27" 1080p for...the brands/models can't really compare. I highly recommend it.

I am sure the 23" version is still sharper....but compared to other 27" brands/models... Samsung 27" is very crisp. Between the Samsung 23" vs 27"...both are great...though, I have never seen them side by side to do a comparison. I would say it just depends on what size you are looking for...and which ever you feel more comfortable with. If you go dual screen...maybe get 23"-24" screens...if you want 1 big screen....probably go for the 27"....tho 23" might be better is you are super serious and competitive in FPS games....27" looks more fun and immersive.
