This is very tempting. I'm stuck deciding between this and the 29" model due to the ppi of the screens. Unfortunately there aren't any local stores to compare them and the QHD models are out of my current price range.

That resolution is terrible for both sizes, but I would get the 34". The 29" looks like a pancake, the monitor is shorter than a normal 1920x1080 monitor.

why not buy a 4K TV, like the 300.00 Insignia or 300.00 Hisense that are posted today? Both are 43" and less money. I truly don't know, and want a better monitor.

If you plan on doing any gaming in 4K, you will need a very nice graphics setup.

because it's not 21x9 aspect ratio, plus they are probably 30hz at 4k

34" 1080p? What's the point on a computer monitor? This is only acceptable for a TV and you can get those much cheaper at this screen size.

unless you're sitting several feet back the 1080p is going to look like garbage at this size for gaming.

Or you have horrible eyesight like myself where the pixels with 1440p are simply too small. Smilie


Also, unless you have an above average video card, pushing 1440p at anything bigger than 24" will force you to reduce quality settings anyway. So...?


If blind, get 1080p
If not blind, get 1440p.


If you don't game, or you play voxel games like Minecraft with purposely bad visuals, it doesn't matter either way but same rule above basically applies.

Why?


At least provide an explanation as I have, so other people can understand your opinion on the matter.


Here are mine:
  1. I have horrible eyesight and that means when I have a 1440 monitor, my experience is drastically diminished as I'm forced to lean forward and keep my face within a foot of the monitor to effectively see.
  2. When you're trying to play competitive FPS games (CS, BF4, CoD, TF2 to name a few) the difference in 1080 vs 1440 is night and day. It's cheaper and you have better performance with a 1080 monitor over a 1440, period. All that matters are frames per second, not how realistic the game looks!
Having a 1440 monitor is indeed great to look at, and I wouldn't want anything else for console where frames per second are more rigidly controlled or the gameplay is designed where it's simply easier to play when sitting 6 to 15 feet from the screen and it's not 'all about da pixel.'

Inacurate is clearly a troll. It's in his username.

Pretty sure scaling has been in Windows for a long time now, old man. Google it.

Nope, just stating the facts. Something so few people are use to, I know. Sorry to burden you into assuming troll, the go to excuse these days for anyone that doesn't conform.


If the monitor is not for you, please move on and allow people to be informed consumers and come to their own opinion.

It has indeed. And scaling can introduce issues. Why deal with 'potentially, maybe' having to resolve an issue instead of running 1:1 across the board and never having to worry? I employ KISS. Has worked well for this 'old man' many a year. No concerns about items being scaled up/down.


If 1080 is not for either of you, there are plenty of 1440 deals out there.


But don't just state troll, or it's 1440 or bust without reasons, or offer half-baked alternative that may or may not introduce their own set of problems.


I have this monitor, it's great for reasons stated in earlier post. I think I just paid $370? Was another SD two weeks back.
Not 1440 clear, but then that's not my target at this time for a computer monitor.
