I’m thinking about buying a 27” monitor tomorrow, but I’m slightly concerned because the resolution is only 1920×1080 (or 1920×1200).

I’ve read several articles saying the resolution isn’t an issue if you aren’t sitting too close to the monitor…and I’ve read others that say the exact opposite.

Anyone have a monitor of this size with a similar resolution? Any thoughts on whether its suitable for web design?

I have a 24” with 1920 by 1200px resolution. If I were getting a 27”, I’d try to get a higher resolution. Otherwise, go with a 24”.

I have a 4 year old 17 inch laptop with 1920×1200 res. I could never work with a smaller resolution. 27 inch and the same resolution seems small. Low pixel density., But at least you wont have to zoom in when doing pixel graphics ho ho.

Wow. I wish I could afford one of those. Sounds awesome.

I think I’m just going to go to a store and try to look at one in person before ordering online.

@MarkDijkstra – I do too. Thats pretty encouraging. :)

I’ve got a 15” laptop with 1920 *1080 :P Sometimes a killer for your eyes when I’m working too long, but I’ve got another monitor connected.

On topic: I think i wouldn’t be a problem a 27” inch with that resolution.
