If you take a 2560x1440 Panel at 27 inch (which is the only size right now) You get a pixel density of 108.79 PPI.
If you take a 1920x1080 Panel at 23 inch You get a pixel density of 95.78 PPI
There is a 13 PPI difference there. Is that really noticable? And if it is, then a 21.5 inch screen at 102.46 PPI should live up to 1440p screens in terms of pixel density.
The screens i'm comparing with can be both TN and IPS, so in terms of overall quality, where lies the factor that might chance this?
Besides, i see some benefits to 1080p over 1440p.
-obviously you have more pixels so you will need more power to maintain or reach a certain fps (mostly 60) on a 1440p
-They cost way Less! for instance a Dell or Vieuwsonic 1440p panel goes for 700 bucks? (i'm european) The cheapest Dell Ultrasharp 1440p panel i can get is €490,-
While most IPS panels at 23inch are SUB €200,- !!
-The 1080p IPS monitors i have seen are mostly below 10ms and some even go as far as 5ms.
-Still a little less PPI (don't know if u can notice 6 to 13 PPI less)
-Less space on desktop
-Really not sure if any 1080p IPS panel can match colours, brightness, contrast and ghosting issues with a brand new 1440p panel.
So i'm curious.. what else makes the difference?
The only difference i found between the Dell Ultrasharp U2713HM and any 1080p ISP panel is that no 1080p can match the dell's 350cd/m² brightness. But go up to 250cd/m² instead. How would this be noticable?
