I want to order a widescreen monitor with a diagonal of 29 inches, every day a small window of a text editor in IDE annoys me more and more. Has anyone had a similar experience? What are the pitfalls? How to choose the right monitor so that you can look at it on duty?
I have 2 monitors by 22 ". Very comfortable, more than enough space. In Visual Studio, I push the window into 2 monitors, I split the workspaces. It’s not convenient in that I sometimes have to look from one area to another, but this not a big deal compared to real comfort. I wouldn’t advise you on a 29 "large monitor, because the screen resolution will also remain 1920x1080 (unless it is of course special), and first of all the number of points is important for me , not a" healthy "monitor . Plus, you can set up debug multimonitor applications (if such a need exists). In addition, at a price of 2 monitors at 22 "will be comparable, and if you already have a monitor, the benefit is obvious. I only know that 29" are needed by designers who constantly look at the little things. Plus, I bought a new monitor with IPS, an old one with TN-Film - almost no difference. Everything can be purely individual, but I did it and have no regrets.
Now I work on 17 "laptops, I expose very large fonts in IDE so that my eyes are less tired, and at this resolution this diagonal is not enough - I have to drag a lot of things on the screen right away (IDE, browser, etc.). I tried to work on 27 "with the same large fonts - ideal and not as loaded as two monitors set side by side (cover all side vision). I think go to 27 "
