I think on 27 inch screen will be larger by (keeping resoltions same on both ) as compared to the screen on 23inches and therefore on 27inch may feel degraded visual quality. Is it really the case? what's ur opinion.
Actually I am planning to upgrade my 23inch ( very recent bought ) with 27inch model as my Desktop screen. Becuase of the recent bought, I have limited time for this exchange offer to get 27inch in place of 23inch with extra bucks.
My sitting arrangment will be hardly 3.5 to 4.5 ft away from monitor. to save space and make it farthest, I am planning to mount monitor on the facing wall.
Why I am opting for 27inch in place of 23inch is that occassionally I wanna see HD media on my monitor( HDMI ) sort of wanna use as TV, with little farther sitting arrangement. In that case of course picture will be similar viewing experience on both 23inch and 27inch.
concerning me is my more usage as desktop monitor, 27inch will be displaying larger image than 23inch, at same resolution then viewing experience will be degraded or less noticeable as a desktop monitor just 3 to 4 ft away?
you got good experience on 27inch. I am not yet completely satisfied with 23 inches. just bought yesterday. I have posted another thread for that recently and trying to tweak or figure out why fonts are greyish and colors washed out and not crystal clear picture. due to graphic card ( SAPPHIRE HD 6570 ) or make of monitor or just calibration. Which card your are using with samsung 27inch.?
I have used 9800GX2 and GTX 560ti on this monitor, I have also connected laptops to it when I have had to work on them.
Some monitors just dont show fonts too well or have a soft look to them.
Honestly , the picture quality i have on my 27 inch samsung is one of the best I have seen. I also watch movies on it and sit at a good distance to watch them.
I have not experienced any degradation in my viewing experience going froma 24 to 27 inch , if anything it has been a much better experience and I couldn't be happier with this monitor.
Gaming is even better , everything is bigger!
I'm really happy with it , and yes it has served me well for years and it still has that wow factor.
My recomendations for graphics card right now would be a to get a 6950 or a 560ti.
They both perform very well especially at the resolution you are using.
I'm using DVI in my set up cos I have yet to purchase a HDMI cable , I keep forgetting to do that.LOL
A max of 1920x1080p is the max res for typical 20inch and above monitors.
resolution being same, how does upsized screen experience is as a monitor some 3ft away from you Versus a 23inch screen experience.
