So I bought a 24'' monitor, coming from 32'' it been pretty difficult.

Going from a 32'' HDTV to 24'' it seems small alot of people told me to get the 24'' over the 27'' but it just seems kinda small. I wish I kinda got the 27'' after all. I know that 1080p 27'' seems like it's to big for that res but coming from a 32'' 1080p it's really can't that bad.

Anyway moving on, going from 32" to a 24" it's a little bit harder than I thought. Will I eventfully get used it ? I was playing BF on it and right off the bat it seems smallish. Almost everytime I use for the last couple of days since I got I say to myself it seems smallish.

I've asked here the following question: 24'' or 27'' and most of you guys said 24'' is the sweet spot.

I still have my 32'' I was using, I was sitting about two feet from when it was on my desk. It was just to big at two feet away, as it seemed. It was bothering my eyes. But come to find out some have said that it's not the really the size it's how bright the screen is and I checked my settings on the TV and it was almost set to max brightness. So maybe if I go back to to 32'' but adjust the brightness it will help out alot. I know I could set the TV back a little further but I like being at arms length from it. Maybe if I set it back 6 inches further back plus reduce brightness it will do the trick.

Damn, I can't even imagine using 32" from two feet away. At that distance 24" is still plenty, you probably just need time to adjust from basically being the kid sitting in front of the TV.

Just depends how you close you sit really TC. I have a my computer at a desk so I am maybe 16 inches from my screen and 24 inch is perfect for me. Sometimes depending on the game I might even push the monitor back a bit on my desk since I got some room. No I way I could use a 32 inch screen like that sitting that close. Also 24 is about the smallest I'd want. Before this screen I had a 19inch screen 1650x900 or something. Before that I had a 17 inch!

I guess going from 32 to 24 is pretty jarring, but no way I could game smaller then 24 now.

I also wear glasses for distance so yeah basically the further away I get I need a bigger screen. For my living room TV, I would not like to game or wathc anything on less then a 40inch tv.

I went from a 30" 1600p to a 27" 1440p and at first it drove me insane how small the 27" is, I cant imagine going back to something that tiny as the one you're using now TC sorry to hear about your story

Well I wouldn't say 24'' is tiny. So do you think I'll get used it ?

I must be the only one that prefers 24 then? I have three of them though. Using three 27s would be to much head movement.

Gee, maybe the three monitors has something to do with it

You'll get used to it, honestly. I switch between a 17, 22, 24, and 52 during the course of each day; and it's really a much bigger* shock switching where they're placed than the screens themselves. Once you adjust to the 24 being where it is you'll be fine.
