[Ars] Apple updates desktop iMac line with “5k” Retina displays - Page 18

well i see pixels on my 5s. and that is ~320 ppi. i think that they could do better on a phone, i can certainly see pixels.

for a monitor, it depends how close you sit to it. but 220 ppi seems pretty safe. at least it works for my 220 ppi 15 mbpr. and my current monitor sits about as close to my face as my laptop does.

so i think they should increase the resolution on phones/tablets, but for laptops and desktops ~220ppi seems good. certainly not excessive

See for yourself what your maximum DPI is.

I give you, jaggies 6JqcxAJs.jpg (click on the image and view at full size).
Now grab a tape measurer and measure the distance from your monitor that the jaggies blur out, then divide that number by the distance you normally sit from your screen. Then calculate your screen density with this caculator, and multiply your screen DPI (PPI) by the amount that you need to divide the jaggie blurring distance to get back to your normal sitting position.
And there you go, you have your ideal screen density.

My eyesight is about 20/17 (slightly above average) and I should be using at least 300DPI on desktop. Which for a 30" monitor is 8K.

When I lay in bed my s3 with about 306 ppi I can still see pixels. I don't even have a great vision. On a monitor distance I woud not see much of a difference, so until we get 8k monitor in 30inch size there is still room for improvement. Not to say that I'd take 4k 120hz over 5 or even 8k display anyday of the year.

When did I ever talk about my visual acuity? And no, it's not close imo.

I think after 300-350 any further increase in PPI will become mostly unnoticeable at normal viewing distances for desktops or laptops (1.5-3 feet.)

Don't confuse "not being able to see a pixel at normal viewing distance with x/x vision" and "not being able to perceive visual improvement." They're very different.

I can also see the pixels on my 326ppi iPhone at my usual viewing distance, and I could tell the difference in ppi between the 6 and 6+ quite easily. What exact is the ppi of this monitor?

i already know i can see pixels on my 15" if i place my eyes close enough. but based on the size of the computer and the size my lap and height i don't usually do that. so i think 220p should be good enough

If i followed your instructions properly, my ideal screen density should be 1270.9? Because i kept seeing jaggies up till 150inches away. Or did i mix up something?

I'm being honest here, i don't know though, but there was still a kink in the lines, they were not perfect. (I did this with my glasses on btw, and they're really sharp)

My distance till the jaggies went away was 150 inches
Distance i normally sit from my laptop is 20 inches
My laptop has a 13" 1920x1080p IPS display

If anyone wants to do the calculation for me haha, i probably did something wrong.

You're paying for the form factor, too.
