Is 1080p enough for 27inch monitor?
Hi Verge forums,
So, I was looking for an external monitor to use with my Macbook Air 2013 (Base model, 256gb ssd)
Basically, I'm really hesitant between 2 monitors: The Asus MX239H and MX279H. As the name suggests, one of them is a 23 inch monitor, and the other one 27. The remaining specs are the same between the 2 monitors, and there is about a 80€ price difference. (About 100 USD).
Now, I'm this hesitant as I don't know how 1080p resolution on 27" monitor would look, as it surely won't be as sharp as the 23". The monitor is going to be used for a variety of tasks:
- With my 2013 MBA, mainly for browsing, document editing, video streaming.
- With a Windows laptop from work (This isn't all too relevant, it's just going to be a VGA connection, doesn't have to look great)
- Potential future gaming with Xbox One or PS4.
Does anyone have a 1080p 27inch monitor? Does the ppi look bad? Is text really disturbing to read as some people on forums suggest?
I'd say I'm sitting about 50cm / 1.6 feet at distance from the monitor.
Any suggestions or opinions would be great.
