23.8" vs 27"
Vertical monitor

I just feel like 27" is just too high to look up at.

What say you?

    Get a bigger desk and put it farther away?

    @electrineer that's not a choice since my room is tight on space l.

    It depends. I‘d like to have two 27“ monitors, but my desk is too "small" for two of them

    I like 21" And 24" screens, anything above is just too much

    @Lyniven are you still stuck with 1920*1080 resolution too?

    @Sumafu What about one 34" (21:9)?

    @electrineer Hopefully, yes. It's a bit meaningless to have more than that on such sizes.

    I just use ultrawide and don't bother. Modern resolutions don't have the resolution deficiencies of the Xerox Alto, so I don't feel the need to have a vertical monitor anymore.

    When I switched from 1080p to 4k, I no longer felt the need for a vertical monitor. Horizontal 4k is actually taller than vertical 1080p in pixels (2160 vs 1920).

    27-inch 4k is pretty nice, although I need to have 150% DPI scaling for things to be big enough.

    @EmberQuill after getting my 27" 4k monitor, I can't go back to a smaller, lower-resolution screen.

    ...I kinda want a second monitor though.
    SO. MUCH. SPAAAACE.

    I have two 27s and it is just right. I had two 28s but that felt a tad too big

    @electrineer yes, I'm fine with it to look at fucking text

    @Lyniven you can get more fucking text on the screen at the same time with a higher resolution

    I feel you, but you're not going to convert the digital hipster crowd. Just smile, nod, and give extra scrutiny to their PRs.

    @Jilano currently I have a widescreen monitor at home, but I prefer two monitors (like I have at work).

    @Sumafu Oh? How come? I'm quite curious about that as I don't see any benefits with reverting to such setup.

    @Jilano The widescreen monitor itself is good, but I want to have two monitors. And two widescreen monitors are just a bit too much.

    @Sumafu what if you had a monitor the size of two widescreen monitors?

    @electrineer too much head movement 😂

    @Sumafu What if we pay someone to hold and move your head so that it's less tiring for you?
