1080p on anything larger than 24" is horrendous. even a 24" 1080p is pushing it.


:huh:

I'm running 1080 on 27". I don't see this "horrendous" problem you speak of. :huh:

Massive pixels, it looks horrible once you're used to a higher DPI monitor (109 vs 82 DPI in this case, that's a 33% difference),

Honestly though, comparing a better monitor to your current one is the only way you'll notice this.

Should definitely be able to get something like that for under $700 ... Bought my 55" LG 1080p HDTV that I use for my system for $800....


HDTV pixel pitch is horrible though, especially at 55", you aren't even talking about the same class of display as a true monitor.

PcPartPIcker.com seems to only have 2560x1440 @ 27 inches. Seems nothing smaller than 27 inches for that resolution exists.

Samsung Syncmaster 2494 here and is not bad. Yes, it could benefit with more Resolution, but since I use it for distant video and gaming I find it pretty amazing.

Now, regarding the post. Yeah, go 27" and 1440p.

I most likely don't and won't have the money for that, nor do I have the desk space for a 30. I am also quite certain that even 25-27 inches if pushing what my parents would like me to get, if anything - 'you already have a monitor, why get another'? is what they'd probaly say.
