This is very true. I notice this with my mom, and people around her age. Need the text to be blown up. Also, the new 13-14" laptops come with 1080p screen are giving them a hard time. It is giving me a hard time. Too small.

2 - 3 feet away.

One other thing, humans weren't meant to scrutinize small bits of print hours on end or a like. Look at most of your swatters and they are wearing glasses well before age comes into it. Avid book readers, studiers, glasses come early thumb.gif

Luckily for me, at the age of 30, my vision is still 20/20 rolleyes.gif Though my wife has glasses

I got a 32" sony bravia couple years ago and have loved it ever since. 1080p. while I can see why people say don't go much bigger than 32" for 1080 I can also honestly say that at 2.5-3ft away I don't personally notice the pixels, nothing looks jagged or anything to me. Best computer purchase I've made since I started doin this stuff.

I think 27" is a a good size, plenty of real estate and not a huge jump in price from 24"s...beyond 27" in monitors starts to get costly.

Just make sure you get 1080p as in pc - so important many TV's a few years ago gave you 1080p but not for pc usage!




I think a 32 is about right for 1080p - any bigger than you will be sitting too far back which may then then effect your desktop set up. wink.gif
