Time to Switch Up to a 27 Inch Monitor or 30?

So, when is it time to upgrade your monitor system for your PC or Mac? Mac’s are now coming out with 27-inch’s as their professional iMac releases, which are extremely nice. Their resolutions are using WQHD at an astonishing 2560-by-1440. Before these, to increase screen real-estate, you would simply add more monitors. That’s what I did, and now I’m sitting with about 10 of them at home, varied sizes between 21 and 24 inches. My upcoming move has me thinking, I’m not using all of these things, it’s probably time to get rid of them.

So, what should I get instead? How about a nice 27-inch screen to replace my 4 21-inch screens. Will that be enough? I think it’s ok as I do not use my main PC now that I’m typically on the road. On top of that, maintaining 4 monitors with your video drivers can be a hassle if Windows decides to update, what a crock. Or what about a 30-inch at a resolution of 2560×1600. Woahhh… Well, we are talking about $1000 for a single monitor here. I’m pretty sure the multi-monitor solution still beats out the large single monitor. But, it’s something to consider… If I could make back $1000 selling all my other monitors, my quad stand, and some extra spare parts around the house, I may consider the size downgrade for the space saver and fresh look.

Ok, now I am no gamer. At least not as of many many years ago. But, if you are, you might appreciate this triple 27-inch monitor setup on Modern Warfare 2. Check it out:

  1. As I read your article on my 27″ iMac I can speak from experience. I used to have two monitors 23″ and like a 16″ laptop or something but now I realized I just wanted one big screen instead of two I had to move my head to look at.

      Cool Mike. I’m thinking with all my old laptops and I think I have like nine monitors between 22″ – 24″, with that, I may be able to sell them all and get two 27″ screens.
