    Opinion for u not for me, its better then 22 inch [to small text] or even 24 inch still to small

    27 inch perfect for 1080p
    32 inch for 1440p
    40 inch and up for 4k

    Also dont buy acer or asus they all have crap IQ compared to samsung or lg.
    Best full HD monitor so far.

    And i love it!
    I got the 27 inch version btw.

    Previously I also though 1080p should stop at 24" as I had seen a very bad 27" 1080p TN panel from Acer.

    Now I am using LG 34" UltraWide 2560x1080 IPS panel which is equal to 27" Wide 1920x1080 but longer. Before this I am using ViewSonic 32" 2560x1440 IPS Panel and I can assure to said I don't see much differences. Both is equally sharp.

    The only great thing of 1440p is it had more working space which is bonus plus point for 1440p but this not means 1080p is horrible. It depends on what kind of panel display you have.

    And 27" / 34" simply looks very nice and not too small font and icon in 1080p.

    For me below is the best screen size.
    • 27" Wide / 34" UltraWide - 1080p
    • 32" Wide / 38" UltraWide - 1440p / 1600p
    • 40" and above - 2160p

    I'll hold to my flowing liquid, thank you.

    I hope it's a white black shiny non-glossy.

    I see a frame. Therefore it is not "frameless".

    I have Acer's 35" Z35 and agree fully. The larger the screen, the further you sit back from it, and the less you see any benefit from higher resolutions. I purposely sought this monitor out and waited for the price to drop, as I didn't want a screen that I was going to have to use upscaling to see everything on - that defeats the purpose entirely. Plus, you get a lot more life from your GPU by sticking to a lower res.

    I was considering the LG 43" monitor that came out last year, but the z35 ended up going on sale for under $700 just then, and I could not see spending double to get the larger screen and then have my shiny new GPU not be able to push it nearly as well.

    lol 1080p is junk. Well for me at least, cuz I run a DAW , and I need real estate the more the better. I have also gotten used to how small thingis are ; I got used to it fast cuz I used to use a FW900 long time ago for 10 years. gl

    Your soo wrong here. I have a 28" Sammy @ 1ms @ 4k resolution. Its small yeah, but you get used to it, then you have sh*t load of real estate which I need since I run a DAW. 34" is good for 8k ..... what is this 40" your talking about. Your wrong. Im fine with what I have now and one day I will go to 34" 8k and enjoy life. gl

    This is your requirement not majority.

    Awaiting you use 8K resolution in 100% scaling on 34" monitor. Good luck! Probably only you can see the wording. Sorry I can't.

    They is already two 8K monitor in market. Dell already start selling and Samsung just announcing. You can buy one of it already now.

    PPI are too low at those inches, 1080p is good for 24" or even better 23/22", Also PPI aren't opinion.

    The fact you don't see much difference is probably because, you've got used to it, and also because being bigger means that you probably look at it from a further distance, but it's just you not seeing the particular, not the monitor being good. Max inches for 1080p should still be 24", a 27" could be ok with 1440p, a 32 could be good with 4K or UW-QHD in case it's 21:9.

    My seating distance is same as always which is a common distance not very far.

    This year I had use 3 size panel and frank speak not much difference in sharpness and details.

    BenQ EW2440ZH - 24" Wide Screen 1920x1080 - use until June, 2017[​IMG]

    ViewSonic VX3209-2K
    - 32" Wide Screen 2560x1440 - use two months only[​IMG]

    LG 34UC79G
    - 34" UltraWide Screen 2560x1080 - use since Sept, 2017[​IMG]

    I had seen a very bad 27" 1080p but not all very bad. Even reviewer also mentioned they is some came with very crisp and sharp output.

    For a great quality panel,
    1080p maximum is 27"

    1440p great in 32" but a bit too small already in 27"

    4K only great when scaling the windows unless you are using a 40" panel. I am buying soon as second panel. For 4K with scaling do can seen a very big different in sharpness but not really in 1440p vs 1080p in size 27".

    You know its good because it has the word "liquid" in it. :)

    But really isnt 1080p at 27inch a bit stretched? It must look awful. I use 1440p on 24inch and it seems perfect.

    Was this an excuse to show your desks? :D Which are quite nice no doubt.

    The distance is automatically a bit increased when increasing panel size, it's probably something you don't notice, but it's there even if it's something like 10~cms, it's still enough to "trick" your eyes and appreciate the higher pixel density, which is either roughly the same or inferior, so in fact the density hasn't changed, or changed for the worse, but still you see it as if it's better. There's really no way you've been sitting at the same distance shifting from 24 to 34 or 32, it's too much big of a difference, also, the ultrawide monitor will mitigate that difference in size, due to it extending much horizontally, and much less vertically.

    I assure you that if you were to get 2 monitor with different sizes, different resolution, but with same amount of PPI (with an error of like 2/3 PPI either more or less), and sit at the same distance, you won't be able to appreciate any difference, because in fact there's none, it's not anything I'M saying, it's just like that, so if you're able to see spot some advantage of one monitor over the other, resolution, inches, PPI and sitting distance have nothing to do with that, and instead, a better lighting, color levels and features, will probably have everything to do with that.

    Haha oops. :p

    Actually windows itself can't render as nice as macOS, iOS or Android. Yup 1440p render nicer than 1080p but the differences is too little.

    Some more now Ultrawide in 2560x1080 vs wide 2560x1440 is just different on vertical resolution and Ultrawide is shorter vertical length than wide. The horizontal still same 2560. It is really not much differences in this case.

    I know my seat distance not so different else I can't touch the keyboard already. Haha.

    I didn't own 4K display yet in Windows, maybe that will tell a huge different to me. But for 1440p vs 1080p really not that different to me. :)

    In correct aspect ratio won't stretch the view. Stretching or not is not depends on resolution but ratio.

    I believe 4K tell big different but 1080p vs 1440p had not much different as I also own 1440p monitor previously, beside wider workspace, the sharpness on the font is similar with 1080p.

    I do seen a very lousy 27" 1080p TN monitor before which is very pixelate and not sharp.

    But a great IPS panel tell a different story. I can't see huge different in font sharpness and clarity in my current 34" 2560x1080 vs previous 32" 2560x1440.

    A 4k 40" monitor will have 110PPI so basically the same density as a 2k on 27" which has almost 109PPI, which is again the same to a 1080p 20"

    So you won't notice any difference, if you sit at roughly the same distance and keep going up with inches
