Hey peeps, hope you've all had a nice break, or still having one if you're one of those lucky sods
Looking to increase monitor resolution at home for work purposes. Currently running 27" 1080p + 14" 1080p, latter is a Lenovo Yoga which has 1/4 the nits, or feels like it anyway and it's driving me mad. At work I'm running 24" 1080p x 2 + 14" 1080p, the two 24" there's still a lot of scrolling so I'd like to go higher than that. Shame, there's 24" 1080p x 2 + mounting bracket on gummy for $160.
It'll be mounted to the back of a standing desk approx 2ft away from the eyeballs, my options are:
A) QHD x 2, can I assume keeping them >=24" & <=27" for reasonable head turning? I see a lot of 32-36" on OzB but not these sizes.
B) 4K x 1, colour reproduction/144Hz/viewing angle are of no concern, real world difference between modern TV and monitor if any? Former I've seen many deals here.
Driven by GTX1060/3GB, it'll be 80/20 for work/personal, with an hr/wk gaming, max, if that.
Budget is around $800 with some breathing room, which don't look good for option A. Have no issues with 2nd hand, non Samsung/etc brands, but it's not easy to find two identical models. Want to have them set up before end of July.
On the software front, is there anything other than DisplayFusion I should consider?
Any suggestions on models, suggestions, and/or your own setup that's working well?
Many thanks in advance
