    It's not that bad from a distance, from close up where it's typically used it's not that bad either if you don't know what a 1440p 27" looks like. If you do know however, then it's horrible.

    Well, and maybe he is just that kind of person who owns superb high contrast 42" 1080p screen.

    Do You know that on 1st shows where people could compare 4k next to 1080p high contrast OLED they liked them quite a lot?

    Sometimes bigger pixels are not bad thing and it should be left to personal preference.
    I personally could not believe how big pixels were on my old 15.4" notebook with 1280x800 after few years of not using it.

    But on other hand, I do not think my 10" tablet with 2048x1536 needs that amount of pixels.

    I love how people discuss pixel density on a 27 inch monitor, while the majority of competitive gamers are often even running 720p on those monitors...

    120 Hz, no vsync, locked framerate steady as hell, ...

    Pixel skipping near the crosshair is also less likely on a lower res. Hell some old skool quakers/cs players are still runnin 800x600 these days.

    Call me crazy, but I would love to have an IPS with amazing colors as my Desktop monitor and a 120 Hz... with a native resolution of 1280x720 for gaming. I'm crazy I know :)

    The difference from 1080p to 1440p on a 27" display is easily noticeable.

    It all comes down to pixel density and viewing distance, and 27" at a normal viewing distance the pixels on a 1080p display are clearly visible.

    Maybe if you're looking at, say, the dotted line between your post and where it says you edited your post.... or if you're looking at something that has a designated corner.... but to say you can see the pixels from a normal sitting distance on a 27" 1080p screen is just as bad as people saying they can SEE the difference between like 90hz and 120hz.

    Yes you are... But yes, reminds me of the old rocket arena days... where 800x600 was still top of the notch for fast machines only. Still got jumping on the right mouse button as a standard fps configuration :D

    I know what I can and can't see. Maybe you have poor vision, I really don't know. I am 100% sure anyone else who has had both or worked with both will tell you the same, it is easily noticeable; poor vision aside.

    Guys, relax, you do not need to quarrel about resolution. In general: one prefers red, another prefers blue, some choose purple - people are not the same. And that is good - otherwise, if all would want the same thing, it would be more problematic :)
    Getting back to the point:
    I agree that the higher resolution we can get - the nicer the game will look. But FPS is also very important. I would recommend higher (than 1080p) resolution monitors only to those who own a very powerful PCs.
    As I have a single GTX680, and next year I will upgrade my PC, so I will probably have single GTX980 - it is a no-brainer for me to choose 1080p monitor for the next 5 years. If I would have 2xGTX980 in SLI - then I would go for a monitor with higher than 1080p resolution.

    So you're trying to say that, while sitting about 2-3 feet away from a 27" 1080p monitor, you can SEE the pixels? You can see them all lined up, all the divisions between the pixels? I could see maybe saying you can see the pixels, when in fact you're seeing things that are designated to be one pixel high or wide... like the majority of the borders on this and most websites. But to say you can see each and every pixel is complete and utter BS. If that's the case, you probably have to sit several YARDS away from any large TV if it's not 4K in order to be satisfied.

    It's not even a matter of "good or poor vision". For that to be possible, you'd have to basically have magnified vision. ESPECIALLY if you're talking about something OTHER than web browsing, like gaming or watching movies.

    I played Battlefield 4 for few evenings on XB270HABPRZ. In my opinion it is very nice monitor, it has good picture quality, solid casing and stable foot.
    Previously, for BF4, I used quite typical monitor (60Hz, 1920x1200, TN, 25.5'', 5ms, no LED, no G-SYNC) and I could reach almost stable 60FPS most of the time (with adaptive v-sync). At the beginning, after switching into newer monitor, I did not notice the difference in BF4 visuals. Later I realized that I can see better when there is a lot of going on, for example explosions, smoke, water, flying, running. For me the difference is not jaw-dropping (considering the price), but I like the improvement.

    I can see the difference between 90 and 120.

    What are you talking about, the difference is very easy to see...

    Here's a hint, yes you can discern between the pixels. Things will appear blocky unless you have high enough PPI that you are unable to resolve pixels. We're not there on the desktop side yet.

    90Hz and 120Hz? You must be just joking now. I can easily see the difference between 96Hz and 110Hz. Let alone 90Hz and 120Hz.
