My search for the computer monitor.

Recommended Posts

My choice for the Monitor (the more tick the better):

At least 100hz

Anything over 98PPI

HDR

Quantum dot

Does not matter if it VA or IPS as long as it have the best color for video, game and photo (like DCI-P3, Srgb etc....)

 

It can be either these few res:

ultra wide at least 34inch

1440p at least 27inch

 

 

35 inch ultra wide (21:9) vs 1440p aka 2560×1440 (16:9)

 

32 inch 16x9 display (purple) vs 35 inch 21x9 display (green)

Simple test to check for Visual Acuity Viewing Distance:

It is a pixel-by-pixel black and white checkerboard background covering the entire page. When you are very close to the screen, you can tell it is 1-pixel by 1-pixel black & white checkerboard. Farther away, it looks like a gray box. The idea is that you find the distance at which it looks like a gray box, and that is the visual acuity viewing distance for your display.

 

Pixel-by-Pixel Black & White Checkerboard Background

 

 

 

Notes:

 

The audience should sit at least this distance from the screen. This is the Shortest Recommended Viewing Distance based on Field-of-View being too wide: This distance is calculated on the peripheral vision field of view of the human eye. The average FOV width for the human eye is 140 degrees. The rule is that if the viewer sits any closer than this distance to the screen and looks at one side of the screen, they will not be able to see the other side of the screen with their peripheral vision. This equates to a 70-degree field of view when the person is looking at the center of the screen.

The audience should sit at most this far from the screen. This is based on THX Longest Recommended and Longest Allowable viewing distances: THX publishes standards to which movie theaters must adhere to receive THX certification. THX recommends that the back row of seats in a theater have a 36 degree or greater viewing angle and requires a minimum of a 26 degree or greater viewing angle to receive certification. (Note: sitting closer to the screen results in a wider field-of-view.)

The Ideal Viewing Distance based on Visual Acuity. This distance is calculated based on the reference resolving power of the eyes. The human eye with 20/20 vision can detect or resolve details as small as 1/60th of a degree of arc. This distance represents the point beyond which some details in the picture are no longer able to be resolved, so pixels begin to blend together. Closer to the screen than this may result in the need for higher resolution display. This value should be lowered if visual acuity is worst then 20/20, raised if visual acuity is better.

 

What is a Retina display?

Retina is Apple's trademark for a display so sharp that the human eye is unable to distinguish between pixels at a typical viewing distance. As Steve Jobs said: "It turns out there’s a magic number right around 300 pixels per inch, that when you hold something around to 10 to 12 inches away from your eyes, is the limit of the human retina to differentiate the pixels." Given a large enough viewing distance, all displays eventually become "retina."

if you use old programs or games, the scaling is gonna be a bitch. fking buggy AF when you scale above 100%

 

 

i think i wait for the X35 end of this yr but since it a AU panel then must wait for review

 

cause samsung do not have a pixel policy warranty info if need to claim warranty

 

and the HDR still cannot make it yet with the new model of 32CHG70 with only 8 zone

doge also wanted ultra wide, but only want 29", and most 29" ultrawide all either 1080p, or TV/VA, or no gsync, or curved. Doge need flat screen cos curved screen will fk up doge CAD images and scaling.

 

If can find a GSYNC, 29" ultrawide flat at 1440p with IPS, doge sure wack.

UPDATE:

 

YES my search have officially ended

 

 

my chosen one is you hear me is DELL (Alienware 34 Curved Gaming Monitor: AW3418DW

34-inch gaming monitor with a curved 1900R IPS display)

 

Alienware 34 Gaming Monitor: AW3418DW

 

 

LG IPS (prefer LG over AU) native 100hz OC to 120ghz and Dell great out of the box color calibration mean you dont need a Display Calibration like Datacolor or X-Rite and dell CLEARLY WRITTEN warranty

 

(unlike samsung which does not have a proper warranty detail, call 5 time in 3/4month and they did not even want to reply me even after i called them again and again, HENG i not yet their customer and already treated me like shit, imaging i am their customer and i brought a 1.4k screen from them and with the warranty not clearly written at websites or a black and white, then i will have a hard time claiming warranty)

 

 

and also if get dell from show sometime dell give 5 yr onsites warranty

 

 

YESSSSSSSSSSSSSS jin happy dell release a gaming monitor

my current dell montior around 8 to 10yr old already

 

 

if the new dell top end monitor can last me at least 8 yr without problem then it money well spend

 

i am waiting for those pc show where dell lower the price and hopefully can neg with dell to give extra 2 yr warranty hopefully (total 5 yr) Dell Premium Panel Guarantee
