I'm quite fond of my 30" 2560x1600 display.

If you want to play competitive: 21.5"
If you want to take online somewhat seriously: 24"
If you are going for fun / single player: 30"

I have been using a 37" for years, switched to 27" but moved it closer so the view range is exactly the same. Honestly the bigger the better. If they made a 1400p tv I would go with that. I like the all-in-one of being able to have my PC and cable on the same display. Although now I guess I can dual monitor between the tv and monitor. I was thinking about setting my monitor real low and then putting the TV above it. The audio on the monitor is the worst I have ever seen, can at least use the audio on the TV for when I watch videos, or just move Netflix over to the TV.

Just had a debate on this sort of thing with a friend. It really depends on your setup. If you are 2 feet from a monitor, a 4k 30 inch would be ideal. If you are 6 feet away, a 50 inch 4k would be awesome.

Smaller sizes for lower resolutions. For me at about 5 feet away 1080p 24inch is perfectly fine.


Who the crap sits that far back from a desk from a monitor? I would think that on average that everyone is 16inches or less away from a desk to their monitor. More ideally I think most would be like 6-10in away but 3-6ft?!? I don't think so.


3ft is about right... 6 seems a bit far for a desk setup (disregarding that excessive 50in screen comment... if it were that big, you'd want to be even further away) but 10in? Cripes, your eyes must hate you.


Sit in a recliner XD Its about 5 feet and its fine. Yes 10 inches is too close though. Eyes suck?

27" 1440p.

High pixel density and nice size = awesome.



I have a 27" 1080p monitor and love it but I hate how my kids 22" 1600x900 monitor has a sharper image so I think early next year going 27" 1440p would be perfect.

I game fine on a 24", but I could definitely see a 27" or 30" monitor being better after I get used to the size.

The largest I used for my PC was a 32" TV but that was 720p lol, I put it in my bedroom for a short time after my old monitor's backlight burned out.

I would like to see how a 21:9 screen would look for gaming. I like the idea of the added horizontal space making it more immersive. A 29" screen of that aspect would be slightly taller than my current 20" screen. I do want to watch movies and do programming with it as well.
