    When I first bought a 32 inch Samsung monitor, I got one with 1080p resolution. I can attest that is a lousy resolution on a 32 inch monitor -- no matter what settings you choose. Fonts simply were not very sharp, nor were many graphics. I returned it and got a Samsung 32-inch monitor with 2560 x 1440 resolution. The fonts are sharp as can be as are the graphics.

    So I would caution readers that a 32 inch monitor with just 1080 resolution might not be easy on your eyes. The extra bucks of a 1440 monitor might be well worth it, especially for anybody in the bifocal generations.
