Which ASUS monitor?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
So I need help choosing, the 24' or the 27' ?

Asus 24'

Asus 27'

The end plan is to get 3 for eyefinity but the whole display port thing is not a big deal. I am just trying to decide on the best monitor.

I program and do a little gaming but I watch more Movies then anything probably. Size is not really a big concern but I am interested in peoples thoughts so suggestions are welcome!

Cheers!

Hmm, I usually go for the biggest screen, but since you plan on using eyefinity ... I'd say, the one with the smallest bezel. Although, judging by the pics. It's the same size so I'd take the 27'

I'm running 3 Asus screens in 5760x1080 Eyefinity. I have two 23.6 inch ones connected by dvi and a 21.5 inch by displayport>dvi adapter. I'm actually fine with the sizes I have when either gaming or working. So I think you'll be happy with either size, 24 or 27 inch. Just all depends on how much you'll be willing to spend.

I can afford the 27' but I am just not sure if its going to be worth it or if I would be better off with the 24'. I have heard that 27' at 1920x1080 is a bit blurry when it comes to text. Would 24 be more ideal? I also might have to use a Lower Resolution at times to see it when studying, (Long story short, I am legally blind)

Not really sure what to go with here.

don't get the 27".
even if your budget allows it.

both monitors have the same resolution 1920x1080.
at that resolution at 27", the pixel density is too low.
as a general recommendation, at 1920x1080, you shouldn't go past 24" or 25" to maintain a good pixel density of 5700 pixels per square inch (give or take ~200 pixels per square inch)

my recommendation stands with the 24".
(plus 27" is a little overkill isn't it...? imagine three of those sitting on your desk for eyefinity--you're going to have to move your head a lot to get a full view of all three monitors. heck, it's difficult enough with 3x 23"ers.)

I have one of the 24"s you linked.. Its a great monitor, getting three would be awesome.
