Why aren't you using a 4K tv set at 96dpi as a computer monitor?

Why aren't you using a 4K tv set at 96dpi as a computer monitor, LULZ?

It's literally like having 4 1080p monitors side by side, and even at massive sizes like 55 and 65 inches, it's still cheaper than a quad monitor setup, you don't need VESA mounts either.

    Forgot to add, you can also think of it as 2 ultrawide monitors stacked on top of each other.

    Going back down to 96/72 dpi and looking at that awful text rendering is eye torture.

        No it doesn’t. At high enough DPI, nothing is blurry on any OS / Device. At low DPI, Cleartype blows other font renderings out of the water, so either way you’re just wrong.

    I've been using a 42.5" 4k 60hz IPS panel for 5 or 6 years now. 2nd minitor is a 27" 1440p 144hz VA panel.
    Both have similar pixel density, so moving windows between the two is mostly seamless.

    I use it at 150% scaling. OLED subpixel size isn't the best so I sit two feet further away than with a monitor.

    A 4K monitor has less horizontal pixels than two 2k monitors even with one in landscape, I’d rather work horizontally than be looking up and down all the time which is a drag.

                DCI 2k is 2048x1080
                consumer 16:9 aspect ratio gives you 1920x1080.

                DCI 4k is 4096x2160

            I was wondering how you're supposed to buy HDMI 2.0 cables ever since they made resolutions greater than [email protected] optional despite being in the standard and also they retroactively upgraded every older cable to 2.0 because every new part of the standard is also optional.

              HDMI 2.1

              The HDMI group are even making it so they wont certify your product for HDMI if they call an HDMI 2.0 port HDMI 2.0, it MUST be called HDMI 2.1 even if it only meets the 2.0 spec.

      nah, 100% scale requires ~36" at the smallest.

      And really 38-42" is the sweet spot.

      I use a 42.5" 4k at my desk, and I think it's just slightly too large, I'd love a 38" or 40"

    Using the cheapest TV from walmart as a monitor is a bad idea.

    48" is the max size for a monitor, 43" is the best size for the quad split productivity panel and 32" 4k is the best for everyone else.

    Literally every website is designed for 1080p, I have enough 720p anime (from early 2010s) that I don't wanna make the mistake of blowing shit up to full screen and dealing with upscaling or websites rendering in stupid and unpredictable ways, my own website looks horrible at 4K if you scale it 1:1.

    Plus, when I do decide to play games, I have to lower the resolution which will look awful at that size or play them in windowed mode.

    I have a tiling window manager that already makes full use of my 1080p monitor, why do I need more?

      This is a you problem because no matter what website or 1080/720p content I consume it all still looks the same as it does on the native 1080p monitor next to me. Sure, I can tell that 1080p video doesn't look as good, or that small images are small, but it doesn't look worse in any way.

    I actually prefer two seperate monitors because when I have hundreds of windows open, it's easy to quickly move a window to one screen and maximize it. With one giant display, it's a pain in the ass to organize windows.

      also you will get neck pain from moving your head so much because the screen spans wider than your field of view, given how close you are to it. If you can't glance the entire screen by just moving your eyes in their sockets and without moving your head, it's a huge ergonomic failure.

    MacOS sucks for using multiple monitors. I have visual glitches, focusing a window I wasn't on takes ages etc. Apple doesn't care about actual users, they just want you to consoom so one screen is enough for them. Fuck em
