Searching for a smaller gaming monitor
 
Hi
Do you know of any smaller gaming monitors (high refresh rate, low response time)?
I know the standard nowadays is 24inch, but I just can't get used to the size of it. Something like 22, 23inch would be perfect for me.

If 24 is too big why not just move the monitor further away?

If I move it closer it appears even bigger. Did you mean push it further away? Already tried, then smaller objects are harder to spot.

Yes sory i was tried and i meant further away and if everything is smaller you can just change the scale in Windows to make everything bigger
Reason why i am asking is there are not all that many high end monitors smaller than a 24 inch so your selection becomes pretty small

Edit: forgot to ask what you will be using the monitor for?

If you buy a smaller monitor, smaller objects will be just as hard to spot. Pushing the monitor further back will, in theory, be better than simply buying a smaller monitor, as the excess distance will emulate the decreased surface area while making it easy on your eyes to focus on stuff.

ASUS VG248QE is probably the best you can get. Smaller gaming monitors don't really exist.

Asus VG236H. 120hz, 1080p, 23"

ViewSonic VX2268WM. 120hz, 1680x1050 16:10, 21.5"

Good luck finding either in stock anywhere.

With a smaller monitor I don't need to push it anywhere, it just appears right to me. Before this 24inch monitor I'm using right now I was playing on a 20inch monitor and it felt a bit on the smaller side. So I bought a 24inch based off of video reviews not realizing actually how big it is. I tried to get used to it for more than a year...then I visited my cousin who has a 22inch non gaming monitor and immediately realized that's the perfect size for me.
So now I'm searching something between 22 and 23inch, but is hard to find small monitors for competitive gaming.

That's a 24" monitor and its obsolete, please some recommending this monitor, it was good for its time but it has been far surpassed by newer 24" 144hz monitors that have PWM free backlights, better colors, etc.
