I current use 2 27" monitors when I trade from home and the thought behind 1 TV would be to keep everything right there so I wouldn't have to look side to side or worry about moving the mouse from screen to screen... maybe I'm being a little to lazy ha.

Getting a new home office and planning on splurging a little bit!!

This is what you need right here. This will make a trader.

I have dual Dell U3415W 4k curved monitors. Looks nice but it didn't make me a better trader. I also have a custom built (by me) water cooled Intel I7 with 32g ram and a GTX1070 graphics card, it didn't help either. LOL!

I've read that with a 40'' 4K monitor there's no need for scaling but this video says the opposite.
Without scaling we can clearly see icons and text become really small.
So if we need to scale also, we lose the high work space which is what these resolutions more offer to us.

This is a bummer.
I'm looking to buy new screens and I have no idea what to do.
I'd like to buy a high resolution screen due to the work space it offers but if we're forced to scale, that work space goes away and it's the same like throwing money out the window.

Been looking at 27'' screens and 1080p resolution but at that size, most people refers the image quality is too pixelized and at 27'' the best resolution is 2560x1440 but then again, scaling comes back at me.

Have no idea what to do.

What!
All of that and you still can print money like the FED?
Shame on you

People get so hooked up with these fancy high tech stuff that they completely miss the most important thing, themselves

There are two aspects to using a HD monitor 1) resolution 2) scaling.
Clearly if you use a ultra high resolution such as 3840x2160 then the information may be too small for you so you have the choice of using a lower resolution or use scaling or continue trying to make out whatís on the screen. It really depends on how good your eyes are.

Saying all that I use 3840x2160 without scaling but it may be different for you.

Also you need to look at dot pitch of the monitor. This will determine the quality of the screen and how blocky the txt is. The smaller the dot pitch the better the screen and more expensive.
