Re: 1440p vs 1080p for general use

Ahh 165Hz for the 1440p panel is pretty great.

Kinda crazy that monitors have fans in them. Also way out of my price range. HDR is another new frontier.

I like the higher refresh rate. Not many games are stable at such high rates but those few are really nice. I don’t do competitive gaming so Overwatch and the like, games that benefit those higher refresh rates, are out for me.

Still nice to have however.

This thread is pretty out of date for my original questions, I ended up buying this late last year and have been happy with it:

I'll wait for OLED's next time.

Edit: derp. Didn't read the last post.
Still some possibly useful for other pepl stuf...
Hmm, not sure I can perfectly relate to the problem, but I have some experience;
I have a 21" Sun/Sony 4:3 CRT that can do that vertical resolution, and at the size it's only useful for vector stuff with unfiltered/unantialiased integer-scaled bitmap graphics (PS1 emulation and the like). The dot pitch cannot support viewing 1:1 pixels well at that resolution. Still, on my 24" LCD I find that for general viewing 1080p content even, I prefer to have webpages and most graphical content displayed at 200%.
In Google Chrome, I just have pages remember view settings, and generally scale everything to 200%. I'm using a plugin called Stylish with one filter globally applied:
Code: Select all
img { image-rendering: pixelated; }

It makes every graphic stay unblurred.
an older (2012) topic I made about only this same thing; My displays have changed.

I'm using now 1080p but i would love upgrade to 1440p; hoping to happen it soon, but to be honest, yet i'm satisfied with 1080p
