Found this when browsing Best Buy's current deals. It's great for a nearly bezel-less/frameless monitor if you want to dual screen and for the size of the price for a brand new monitor (not refurbished!) it's pretty darn good after doing my fair share of research. So save yourself $80+. Here's the specs from the website & link (at the end):

Or just sit farther away?

You can't say a specific size and resolution produces a certain result as it's all relative to the distance viewed, which surprisingly varies quite a bit between people.

Not to mention eyesight and lighting inconsistencies.

My issue with this monitor is, where are the visa mounts? Who in their right mind would choose an ultra-thin monitor over a thicker visa compatible one. The stand essentially ensures any thinness is purely aesthetic. Which is fine, I guess, but seems like a very specific need.

No it's not due to where you are sitting, Resolution of monitor x size of monitor = How many pixels are in the one square inch? (PPI)


Let say 24" monitor and 27" monitor has same Resolution.
Both 1080P

24" inch monitor has 91.79 PPI
Display size: 20.92" × 11.77" = 246.12in² (53.13cm × 29.89cm = 1587.9cm²) at 91.79 PPI, 0.2767mm dot pitch, 8425 PPI²

27" inch monitor has 81.59PPI
Display size: 23.53" × 13.24" = 311.5in² (59.77cm × 33.62cm = 2009.68cm²) at 81.59 PPI, 0.3113mm dot pitch, 6657 PPI²

with 27" model, PPI is lower. Therefore it looks blurry. It's just a fact. no matter how close or far you are sitting.


Other example would be... If you took photo at 5mega pixel camera, It should be fine to print 4x6, but if you print that same file in 20 x 30 inch size, it will look more blurry. You can not get go up in size and not sacrifice clarity if resolution is fixed.
