Hi, guys,

Quick question.

I'm currently running 2 x 24" screens with my laptop as my 3rd screen. These are 1920 x 1080.

I decided that I want more screen space and initially planned on simply getting another 24", but I have now decided that I'd rather go for a higher resolution screen and either choose 2 x 27" or a single 49".

Dell 49" LED Curved U4919DW

Dell UltraSharp 27 Monitor: U2719D

All things considered, the 49" will be approximately 50 % more expensive than 2 x 27". The advantage is that I won't have to stress with getting a mount for my two monitors (not necessary, but probably ideal) and that I can center my main workspace in front of me (not worrying about a bezel) with spreadsheets on my left and less important charts to the far right.

Any thoughts? Anyone using a 49"? It's a bit expensive, but considering all the time I'm spending and will be spending on my desk, the cost can be justified if it's a better solution.

Thanks in advance.

Howard

I have been running a pair of 1900 by 1200 pretty similar to you. Asking a similar question as we are gearing up to move into a travel trailer (Queen's English, a caravan). So I will be wall mounted on an arm when that happens, and probably double as our TV as well.

With the help of others I have learned that the 4K monitors have a real issue with the size of writing. Several have said they make the numbers so small you can't use the full resolution. Others have said they love their big screens. It sounds like something over 42 inches or so is the break point where 4K is usable. Then you get into how far from the screen do you have to sit to see it comfortably.

My plan at this point is to find a store where I can take my laptop and just plug it in to the correct size of monitor and see for myself.

Hi, Trailer Guy,

At this point, I don't think I've found many people not happy with using a single 49" screen and many of them seem to be coming from a dual-monitor set-up.

I was also hoping to bring my laptop to a store and check it out first hand, but there's simply no stores who have this beast on display.

There are some online stores here in Norway who offers a 60 day money back guarantee even after opening/using it, so I'm considering just taking the plunge. It IS expensive and quite a bit more than I had in mind originally, but it might just be worth it.

Best regards,

Howard
