I'm currently using a bank of Asus 27 inch monitors for day-trading ES on a very short-term basis. I'd like to try a 49 or so inch monitor but don't want to overpay or buy one with more features than I need. For example Samsung has 49 inch monitors from less than $1,000 to over $2,000. Which large monitor would suffice? Or is this just a bad idea, and I should just stick with my 27s?

I am currently using a 43" Samsung 4k TV and LOVE it. $350. Make sure the TV displays Chroma 4:4:4.

Ditto here on using a Samsung 43" 4k TV (for a little less than $350 on sale even) - it's become my primary screen for 3+ years (and I have a couple 24" running as well but I should really just get another 43" and replace those).

Brother-in-law bought a very nice 55" Samsung 4k to use at his trading desk as both a monitor & TV - paid $500-$600 for it but it is absolutely stunning to use as a "monitor". A bit too big for me tho

Also, FS2020 is a lot more fun as well on a 43" screen than 24"...

Currently running two Samsung CHG9 Series C49HG90DMN 49" inch monitors. Couldnít be happier. Prior to inflation, these could be had for for 800 to 900. Currently at Best Buy for 950. Excellent monitors!! Highly recommend.

I know your talking about a single monitor so maybe not relevant but I switched from 3 Dell 30" monitors to 2 Dell U4320Qs. While I love the screen size and being able to see massive spreadsheets, it's now too much screen real estate. Can't watch it all. Definitely over kill.

Appreciate the "chroma 4:4:4" reference, had never heard of it before!

Did a little digging and found this:

Helped me, hope it helps others.

In my opinion anything over "42" is overkill for a pc desk setup. The screen area is just too large in my opinion. Do you really need 49 inches or would 42 for example be enough ?

I bought a cheap 4k 55" tv last spring for $330...works great as a monitor.

I agree. 42" is big enough for me. Three 42" setup next to each other vertically in portrait mode wrapped around my workspace makes a great 'cockpit' to work in.
