Does anyone on /g/ use 1440p, 1600p, 3840x2400 or 4K monitors?
What do you think of them after using them?
>What do you think of them after using them?
posting from my rMBP. got it about 3 months ago after reading all the pro/con crap on /g/.
to tell you the truth, I'd never use another computer that's not retina/high-dpi. screen on this rMBP is fucking incredible. it's like reading paper. you cannot see pixels and it's all perfect.
everything else looks like shit now. it's like being spoiled by a high end car... everything else is crap compared to it.
1600p CRT from late 90's reporting in!
People who use 1080p/16:9 monitors because they are 'oldfags' need to GTFO
Put it this way. THe difference between a 1080p and a 1600p monitor feels like the difference between a 1280x1024 and a 1080 monitor.
Bought a 4K last month. Actually it's a 55" TV but has good response time and 4:4:4 chroma so it's fine for use as a monitor. I haven't upgraded my video card yet but I don't play high end games so it's not a problem. I love being able to sit on the couch across the room with a wireless keyboard and touchpad without straining my eyes.
I've got a pair of HP ZR30w, 30"2560x1600 monitor and I love these damned things.
The picture is amazing, the colors are superb, I'm so glad I left 1080p. but honestly I probably won't be going 4K anytime soon.
So glad I got these as refurbs while they were on sale, still about $650/ea
Upgraded from 24" gaymen 1080p screen to a 27" 1440p Dell Ultrashit, no regrets whatsoever.
Enough workspace for whatever I want to do, yet no need to worry about scaling like with 28" 4K panels.
Games and video look beautiful as well.
No, not at all. Some people can read text on smaller high res screens just fine (sucks if you can't but don't hate others for having better eyes) and even then you can still do things like scale to 200%, a 2560x1600 screen will have a 1280x800 workspace with 4 real pixels for every pixel representing a workspace pixel, allowing for a sort of subpixel rendering for smoother and sharper text, etc.
I use a 27" 1440p screen and I feel that it's about the highest PPI that I will find comfortable without scaling. Compared to 1080p it's a dream for the desktop.
One thing I like with 4K is that you can draw everything in twice the resolution and get super sharp icons and super nice fonts. Got quiet impressed with a retina macbook after playing with the scaling. The fonts were so good.
I have a 27" 1440p. I think a 29" would be more ideal to be honest. Firefox's default font is really small and so are the Windows properties text.
I have to use an addon to increase the font size.
it's great otherwise.
I think 40" is kinda silly especially for a monitor if you're going to sit close and 32" 4k monitors *might* be too dense
I basically stopped caring once I got to 1600x900, everything in Windows is too tiny on 1080p and it all looks sharp either way, shit if my TV screen didn't have some bullshit scaling problems with it, I'd still be using 1366x768
>have 1440p monitor
>want to play some games but don't want to upgrade my graphics card
>play with black borders instead
It's just a question of being used to it or not
I recently switched from 1600x900 to 1080p.
Yeah, at first everything looked small n' shit, but after 2 - 3 days you find it better than 1600x900
