    Nice - you have a very clean desk. Is that a giant touch pad between the keyboard and the mouse?

    Wacom Cintiq or similar... basically a touchscreen with fine grade sensitivity, pressure sensitivity and other extras.

    Nice wallpaper. The skeletor I grew up with didn't look quite so menacing, or cool...

    Maybe I'm just OCD, but I would have to align that right-most screen with the other two. It would drive me nuts to have it off like that.

    As usual I find it impossible to get decent photos of anything in my room.

    It's two 24" Dell P2411Hs flanking a 43" Sony x800D. First time I've ever wished for larger bezels - while the screen sizes match exactly, the thin bezels of the Sony don't match up with the Dells.

    Interestingly enough, I feel like I've actually lost a lot of multi-monitor productivity since going PLP. I think my ideal setup would be to have both of my Dells off to the same side, stacked in landscape. I'd have to build a new desk for that kind of a setup though.

    I hear you. I have a pair of Dell 2711s flanking an Acer X34. Looks OK but might also be better to stack them in landscape on one side or the other. It isn't always productive to have the matched screens opposite each other. But I do like how your setup looks.

    It was a great show. I seem to recall drunk 21-year old me got kicked out of a bar for standing on a table and drawing my (pretend) sword from my back yelling "I have the Power"...

    Those of you sitting 2-3 feet from 48 inch monitors... how do you not strain your eyes or have to turn your head to see the whole screen.

    It feels like it would be impossible to play FPS or RTS/MOBA on these things while sitting 2 feet away to use a mouse and keyboard.

    I used to sit about 3 feet away from my 48" and I never did feel like I had to look around. The key to no eye strain is 4K. Anything lower at that size and there would be some serious eye strain. I did however move my screen so its more like 4' away so that it doesn't sit in the middle of my desk. Sits all the way to the back of it and looks alot better that way.

    The wife and I have several display's in use daily , I have a post back some page , 2016 setups , we have made a few changes so I need to make a 2017 update...over 30 monitors here , 13 in regular use

    I see some pretty nice choices in the current crop in this thread...

    I recently shook up my whole desktop setup and finally got my hands on an LCD I can deem worthy enough of being a primary monitor before my GDM-5410 joins my GDM-FW900 in the CRT afterlife.

    [​IMG]

    Eizo FG2421 in the center, Wacom Cintiq Companion Hybrid (read: a 13HD touch that's also an Android tablet) beneath it, crappy old Dell P170S off to the right for chat/communication apps.

    Yeah, that basically means I have VA, IPS and TN all on the same desk, and speaking of which, this desk is long overdue for replacement as soon as I design a custom one. I don't like having to shuffle my peripherals around all the time.

    Those with 40" displays. Do you have to move your head opposed to just moving your eyes? I tried using a 32" HP Omen and it was torture.. Went back to my 27" and everything was fine.

    AdamK47 what is the view distance to the screen? Do you prefer it much more than for examole a 48 inch tv on a table for daily pc use?

    My head is probably around 10 feet from the screen when sitting in the chair. I haven't really measured it. I simply moved the chair into a position where I could take everything in without having to move my head. There's plenty of room to reposition it if need be.

    [​IMG]

    It's super comfy and the Lapdog (minus the leg padding as shown) straddles the arms of the chair perfectly. It makes it so I can use the mouse and keyboard with my elbows resting on the chair. It's a great home theater PC gaming experience.

    I did have a 40" Philips monitor on a desk prior to this. I had to move my head slightly sometimes. That's even with the monitor all the way to the back of the desk.

    I need to wait few years before I can test a 40 inch tv as monitor. I think this would be awesome, but also maybe to big.

    Look at your smartphone. If it's a 5'' 1080p, it should be 441 PPI. If it's a 720p, that will be 294 PPI at the same screen size. A 4K screen, at 27'', that should be 157 PPI. Suddenly not so impressive, huh? a 40" 4K is only 108 PPI. That is pathetic in comparison.

    I prefer the bigger 40" screen for watching movies and the smaller 27" for gaming and browsing as it strains the eyes less and everything looks super sharp. Far as text being too small, increase the scaling and your text size :)

    It's all relative to the distance viewed.

    the viewing distance on a smartphone is much smaller.

    I disagree. It's great for desktop/app real estate, for comparison multiple monitors for example where turning your head and eyes is expected and required. You absolutely have to tilt your eyes/gaze to the periphery in games specfically if your monitor is so large vs viewing distance that its periphery is largely outside of your focal view. That is just optics. Especially in 1st/3rd person games where pertinent data/huds/notifications/pointers and even action/targets are pushed outside of your focal viewpoint.
    How large the monitor and how far the distance are the factors. With an eye and head tracking kit my point would be proven easily. Whether you are fine with doing that eye and perhaps even head movement is a different point but that doesn't make it false.

    with over 30 monitors of various sizes , refresh rates , and resolutions , currently in my house that have been used in all sorts of combinations up to and including 5 x 1920x1200 portrait surround , I have never experienced the issues that are being described. Maybe I am an exception to the rules but I doubt it as I consider myself pretty normal . I would not tell anyone not to use a large tv/monitor up close because of the issues being brought up , I am not saying that your info is "false" ,but that I don't think they rise to the level of being a problem. The information you provided may in fact help some people with their decision.
