post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
spotted some 24" for about 150-165, is that a big enough difference to bother with?

LCD TFT monitors

If the resolution is the same, then increasing the size does two main things. For one, it makes it bigger, obviously, so assuming the same viewing distance, it'll be larger and potentially more immerse. On the downside, the DPI/PPI goes down so sharpness slightly drops. It shouldn't be bad though; just not as good as what you have.

Also, LED backlit displays are LCDs.

Yes, def worth it. I dual screen my old 21.5 and 24 for a good year until I went with a 27 + 24. I still have the 21.5 plugged in haha.

I agree with everyone else. I think the monitor is one of the most important parts of my computer and right now I have 2 23" screens. Definitely upgrade your monitors if you can.
