nicely explained. BUT I think you should divide it into a 2-set (or making entirely 2 different video tutorials) - for gamers, and for non-gamers. Seriously, with all due respect to you gamers out there, all I hear today (whenever I look for a monitor, or computer, or hardware) is Gaming, gaming gaming.... and it's get a little tiring just sifting thru what my needs (as a "regular" computer user) and to all these vast info, extras (and expenses alike) of the gaming world.

So the mid-ground recommendation at the end was an IPS 1440p 27" monitor .... but IPS monitors as you've said CAN and seem to be known for backlight bleed which would seem to me as a huge negative because who would want that? This feels a bit misguided. I definitely don't want backlight bleed. ugh...

I need a 22" or 24" monitor which I would use for word processing, web surfing, that's about it. I'm not a gamer, I'm a senior who still uses a desktop pc for Quicken, reports, word processing and very little web surfing. I use a laptop wirelessly in my living room with my legs elevated where I do about 90% of my web surfing.

If you are in dilemma of purchasing what resolution on what screen size then here is simple guide. 1. Calculate PPI(which is diagonal pixel length/ diagonal screen length) which can be done on website. 2. Now, if you want budget monitor with best value and not quality then 85-95(OK). And 95-105(Good but text may look very small and it depends to person vision) beyond that it is very good just because of high pixel density and the quality only. As PPI goes up 100 then visibility is difficult on native scaling of 100%. 3. So, for best quality monitor like getting 4K 27" monitor PPI goes 163 so seeing those tiny text is painful. Let's scale and make it around 100. So, scaling on 150% gives around 108 which is OK. Calculation is simple. 150% means 50% extra pixel of normal 100% pixel value is going to kind of waste(or used to scale). Say, if square is drawn of 10x10 pixel then 15x15 pixel is used after scaling. So, here is simplification. Scaling happens on multiples of 25 like 125%, 150%,175%. So, 150% scaling means 50%(2*25) going extra waste out of 100%(6*25) calculated value. So, 2(extra waste)/6(actual) means 33.33% waste. So, 163PPI - 33.33% = 108PPI. Scaling doesn't waste pixel but uses that extra pixels to scale according, it improves quality but working area decreases as all UI elements increases in size. 108PPI still seems small. We could purchase 4K 32" monitor having 137PPI and after 150% scaling, 2(2*25)/6(6*25) then again 33.33% extra pixel being used for scaling. So, similar value has to be subtracted from PPI. 137 - 33.33% = 91 PPI.

So does 1440p on a 24 inch monitor still make sense ? I was thinking about upgrading to 1440p, but i am not sure if 27 inches wouldnt be to big for me.
FaithCeil Oy oldin
It makes sense. Even at that size 1080p is too low of a DPI and will require you to sit too far to get a good looking image. 1440p is a good improvement on that size. Personally, I'd go with a 27" 1440 or even 4K. The extra screen space is really nice.

Looking to upgrade my setup significantly, and love the idea of an ultrawide as my main monitor, however I still prefer to run multiple monitors for my multitasking purposes. So the top 2 I've been looking at are the LG 34WK95U-W and MSI PS341WU, is it possible to daisy chain either of these models with 2 Asus ProArt PA278QV monitors? I'm not a fan of curved displays so keep that in mind in case of other recommendations, thank you.

Is the one behind you a 21:9, 34” curved monitor? Or what size is that? You didn’t cover for the musicians what would you suggest:- a 34” plus an additional regular 24” on its side, or an Ultra Wide 49” ...which is double the price... (I have to keep in consideration to not cover the studio monitors/ Audio)... I’m considering a 34” ultra-wide, 21:9 -- Thank you for this video.

I'm an M1 MacBook Air user - looking for an external monitor to colour grade, video edit and use with Excel/Word. Been looking at the LG 27" as I don't need anything bigger or wider but would like USB type C connectivity and clean (not funky LED lit) styling. The LG27UN850 would tick the box but isn't yet available for sale whereas retailers are pushing the LG27UL850 instead. I'm trying to fathom the advantage in waiting for the later UN iteration of monitor. Any advice would be appreciated.

Wow. That is a lot of information for me to learn from you. No easy one. I am planning to buy an Apple Mini computer M1 for my sister. She likes to use the internet and check her emails. She might use photographs and maybe voice. I do not know much about a microphone or speaker because I am deaf. I realized that you talked so much about different monitors. I also realized that many monitor companies are a dirty business. I assume that LG owns Benq monitors. PD2700U and EW2780U are what I am trying to figure out which one for her because of the number of ports and also her iPhone for the USB port. For me, I would buy a wide monitor like yours - I forgot the name. I have an iMac 27" 2019 and later Apple Mini computer with a wide monitor. ;) I would be surprised if you reply me. One more thing I care about the quality text on a monitor - no blurry or no ghost texts. Thank you.

Does a laptop running RTX 3070 allow me to fully use my 2K@240Hz monitors (even if the laptop's screen is 1080p@120Hz, for instance)?

@Mr Anderson will stick to 3070. Thanks
Mr Anderson
Mr Anderson Oy oldin
@Ultimate Adaptation Is it 2070 or 3070? Originally you posted 3070, now 2070? Maybe I misread, but one thing for sure, 2070 will perform even worse than 3070(both laptop and PC version).
Ultimate Adaptation
@Mr Anderson yeah, don't have the space for desktop. Was asking because rtx 2070 laptop is cheaper and according to the manufacturer, 2070 should be able to do 2K@240Hz with the right connectors (e.g. displayport 1.4).
