Yeah, you'd be a tad too close. Optimal distance would be around 1.1 meter.
I use this site to gauge my distances: http://www.flatpanelshd.com/focus.php?subaction=showfull&id=1229341535
Mind you, these values are more in line with TVs, so your mileage may vary with a computer screen... and people tend to be closer to their computer monitors than their TVs.
Ahh i see, but when i am gaming i am between 1m - 1.5m so i dont understand why its an issue
What's your in game resolution? Do you have it set the same as your native? That's a good distance to be from a screen that size.
game resolution is always 1920 x 1080p / 60hz (and this is also the native res)
I think I may have an idea where the problem is coming from, my seat height level.
If i look dead straight at my monitor, my eyes are above the center of the screen, I would say inline with top of the screen. Would this be a reason?
I just played 1 hour of far cry 3, and my eyes are burning like hell. Before on my 22" i could play for hours on end without any problems.
I have until friday to decide if i want to keep it, as i can return it, I really hope it will grow on me.
