Got a Wasabi-Mango 4k 42" Korean IPS monitor: What tests to run? - Page 99

I tried the PXCalc.com, but, I thought that it would show you what the text would look like in size. Not sure if the GC has anything to do with it. I will be using a EVGA GTX-970 4GRam. Im not using my Desktop PC for Games, just for Desktop Adobe Applications, Video and Photo editing. It converted the AMH 409UHD to a DPI of 111.54, Will that be bigger than 90.05 DPI, or smaller? Thanks for the link. thumb.gif

90 text will appear 20% larger than 111, so it's similar to 125% scaling of 111.

Are we talking text in Windows? I use Win7 64 Pro Will that be the same for Applications Like Adobe?redface.gif

dude - you are beating a dead horse. just use the dpi tool to decide if whatever panel size you consider will work best for ANY application text legibility - don't get hung up on the word "scaling" - now I'm sorry I wrote it rolleyes.gif

Hey give an old man a break! I'm spending a lot of money on this system, well over 3K, just don't want a lot of problems, I appreciate your help:rolleyes:

In the simplest terms, 111 dpi will appear "smaller" than 90 dpi. Also, Adobe runs fine, but I have no idea how good/bad your eyes are so YMMV. With all this said, I'm sending my WM back for a refund due to the horrible issue w/ 1080p inputs.

These knowledgeable people are just forgetting to tell the basic information:

dpi means dot per inch -> how many pixels does a panel have in one inch. From here is quite simple, the more pixels you have in one inch the smaller the text (and everything) will be. (Because a 20 pixels tall letter always be 20 pixels tall, just the physical manifestation will change -> the more pixels a panel has in one inch, the smaller one pixel will be. (because one inch will always be one inch)).

All right, I will edit this just to be really informative:

The Windows and other operational systems / applications may have an in-built software scaler, which can change the text / UI "size" and by "size" we now talking about from how many pixels is an element is built. So in this case, when you change the scaling to 125% the fact, that a 20 pixels tall letter always be 20 pixels wont be true, it will be instead of 25 pixels tall, seemingly grown in size.

What Im trying to say here, if you buy a display with high pixel density (or dpi) it wont be necessary bad because you can magnify the size of the letters by software. The other case here that the appearance will be dependig on the algorythm which is used by the magnifier software, and Windows is not using the perfect ones (I heard Win10 is OK anyway). (And by the way, not taking the bad software implementations more dpi is superior)

Now Im completely offtopic.

fox, the problem is when you depend magnify or rescale it defeats the purpose of having a 4K monitor on your desk in place of 4x 2K monitors banked together. this is why I laugh every time I see a 27" 4K on sale for $400 - who in is right mind would want such nonsense when for $100 more they could enjoy a 39". this is why the majority of >39" 4K DP buyers are so active on OC because we ultimately want one big panel to replace a lot of little ones, and why we buy these 2160P60Hz and make the speed sacrifice while most of the industry is now at 1440p120Hz - because we all crave physical legible desktop real estate.

Yep, Im on 95 dpi now, I might be able do go down for 90... bigger pixels are not really wanted. However I feel like I can handle ~110 tongue.gif

Well guys, sorry, I did not mean to Hijack this thread. I understand it now. I think I'm going to order the AMH-409 U. It looks like Dreamseller is the only one carrying this on Ebay. I have not seen any listings for a reseller called Green-sum, or Green-some that I have heard mentioned somewhere. Again thanks everyone for the explanation:o
