I use a 27" 4k monitor at home and am considering a 49" ultrawide upgrade, so 24" is pretty small for 2019.


How do You imagine using 49" monitor on a desk sitting 1,2m from it?
Why would 24" be 'basic' for 2019?!

Its a cheap nice looking monitor by a decent brand but 24"1080p in 2019 is a bit basic these days unless its for office work or people on a very tight budget.

Same way you would use 3 monitors side by side.

Maybe You're right and there's just something wrong with me-imho that would be a bit too much for a normal user.
I could never use a 49" for competitive gaming. Maybe a casual or offline game. But even then my eyes would get tired shooting across the screen. 23.8-27" is plenty enough for me.

Well it depends what you are doing - if it's just for a home office where you do a bit of browsing and a few emails - this will be fine but actually working for a living from home? I wouldn't go this small.

They said home office so probably not for gaming use. I couldn't use a 49" for gaming either, I have a 32" for that.

Yes but with different monitors you could have different windows arranged etc. I don't have that setup, in fact I don't really use computers much. Where I had TV connected as second screen, it felt too big and horrible. That size is only good for watching TV in my opinion. Have some sympathy on those of us who have small ones, monitors I mean.
Haha.. good comments. We are still using square 17 monitors in my work and it is one of the biggest companies in the world. if you calling 24 inch monitor outdated, so 17 square is stone age

I've noticed the bigger companies I work with have the worse IT equipment. Startups buy themselves the best current stuff, in 10 years they will still be using it and it won't be current anymore.
im using one of these with my pi 4 4gb, makes a very nice PC

My bad! I thought that was a regular TV with 49 inches. I just looked up ultra wide and I learnt something new! Ok, these make sense instead of multiple devices!

They are pretty good. You can split them up and treat it like 3 monitors with no bezel or view a large spreadsheet. Though a spreadsheet that wide is probably badly designed. I have had a few csv files that big before I fixed them though.
I need a pair like this with dual HDMI so I can use 1 pair of inputs for my iMac and another pair for my Windows setup.

As its a monitor and not a TV so has higher DPI / refresh etc and is designed to be used in that fashion (close up) id say perfectly fine. Its 32:9 ratio so is wide and not tall and they are curved so your eyes have to travel less distance to scan its width.

I think your confusing monitor viewing distances with a TV, a monitor is designed for close up work. Its not really any different to working with dual 27" monitors side by side.
jhw25/08/2019 19:55

Im a software developer, i often work from home and find the screen real estate too small on my single 27" 4k screen. I use dual monitors at work and miss them terribly when at home, i have one copy of visual studio running on each monitor or 1x VS and 1x email. Also if you can afford the best and use a computer a lot why deprive yourself of the luxury.

I'm not confused. I work about 2-3 feet from my monitor, a 49" monitor NOT a TV would be too large at this distance. I bought ultrawide because I can get VSCode, Atom etc side by side with a web browser. I also use a laptop to play any videos etc that I'm learning from.

I bought an Ultrawide monitor so that I could replace two monitors, however I often have a need for a third open window so I use a laptop as well. For me an Ultrawide replaces two monitors, I just didn't bet on the fact I also need another screen for other work such as looking things up or researching. A 29" is the perfect size for the distance I work at. A 34" Ultrawide would prevent me using the laptop effectively as well.
Fire for the money
John Lewis same price although it says silver. Also a lot of employee benefit schemes give 4% discount for an instant e- gift card for John Lewis Partnership shops.

Maybe the larger would have stopped the need for the laptop too?
