23 inch vs 27 inch 1080 monitor

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I am thinking about getting one of those new IPS Viewsonic panels - they are 1080. They have good review from those who who use the for pphotoshop. My main use is photoshop, premiere, visual studio and very very few games. So 23 or 27 - i sit at most 2 feet away.

Are you really nearsighted?

I think 25" 1080p is the biggest I would go with, especially at 2 feet viewing distance.

It's about 36" from my (24" diagonal 1920x1200) monitor to my eye. I just measured. smile.gif

edit: this is for HDTVs but
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Optimum_HDTV_viewing_distance

RCA Screen Size Recommended Range
  • 22" ______ 3'0" – 8'4" (0.9 – 2.5 m)
  • 26" ______ 3'5" – 9'10" (1.0 – 3.0 m)
  • 32" ______ 4'4" – 12'1" (1.3 – 3.7 m)

TOSHIBA
Screen Size Recommended Range
  • 19" _________ 2.5' – 8.0' (0.7 – 2.4 m)
  • 22" ________ 3.0' – 9.0' (0.9 – 2.7 m)
  • 26" ________ 3.5' – 10.5' (1.0 – 3.1 m)
  • 32" ________ 4.0' – 13.0' (1.2 – 4.0 m)

27inch is a little to big for 1080p in my opinion, a 23-25inch is best for 1080p

nope not nearsighted - perfect vision thanks to Lasik. I have an old 17 inch monitor now so more than 2-2.5 feet its hard to use.

I went from 27" to 23". 27 is really fine but excels when playing games or watching movies. For what I call "content creation" you would be better off with more dense pixels. Stick with the 23/24.
