Hello,

a question of a technical nature ... you work on what type of screen? i mostly use a 5K and when i have to use an acer gd245 (https://www.01net.com/tests/acer-gd245hq-fiche-technique-12583.html) .. i find it .. ugly :thumbsdow

I have a 32" 4K Acer BM320 hooked up to my LW PC. It works for me, though I could probably do with having it another 6"-8" further away from me on my desk.

27" HP Dreamcolors at work (https://www8.hp.com/us/en/workstations/displays-dreamcolor/overview.html).

38" Ultrawide Asus ROG PG348Q at home (https://www.asus.com/us/ROG-Republic-Of-Gamers/ROG-SWIFT-PG348Q/).
(unfortunately not true 10-bit like some web shops claim. it takes only 8-bit signal)

Might possibly swap the Asus for this 49" from Dell within a couple of years (https://www.dell.com/en-us/shop/dell-ultrasharp-49-curved-monitor-u4919dw/apd/210-arnw/monitors-monitor-accessories).
(but it's only 60hz, would be a massive change from 100hz which I have at home, but.. we'll see what happens in the future. 10-bit + 100hz or more would be awesome.)

(unfortunately not true 10-bit like some web shops claim. it takes only 8-bit signal)As I discovered last year when I was looking for a new monitor, it is quite common to find that monitors advertised as being 10-bit turn out to be only 8-bit with FRC dithering when you read the small print :twak:

I use a pair of HP LA2405wg (1920 x 1200) monitors. Decent price, good picture, fairly reliable. Only 8-bit color, though (which is not an issue here...)

I'd like to upgrade to something a bit better at the next workstation upgrade, though... but I have no clue what that might be...

Indeed it has ugly stand. Orange parts are distracting.
You can get dual monitor stand. Like this one:

Google for "dual monitor stand" in photo mode for more versions.
Monitor stands are typically replaceable/removable.

i had higher res dells and went back to 1920x1600 as the text was too small. maybe different now on 2019 but i didn’t like it in other apps too.

No idea (or interest) in bit depth.........:p

I'm probably going to stay with the same resolution, maybe move up to 27", might make it easier on my eyes. Several good choices in that area, decent prices.

yeah i was thinking same. readability has a significant impact on posture.

I have an LG 24UD58 4K monitor and a Dell U2312HM. Both are 23.8" and very nearly the whole sRGB gamut (exceeding in places). It is weird to have to move the mouse halfway down the left screen to be able to move it to the right screen, but you get used to it. LightWave 2019's resolution-independent UI means that it looks great.

Main BenQ PD3200Q (2560*1440), and second GW2470 (1920*1080).
More resolution=all more small (fonts, icons, all), my eyes are old enough to kick my *** if I get a 4k, so a 32" and 2560px is ok for me (but I must admit that the area is too big, I need to turn the head to jump from one side to the other).

That last bit has me looking at 4K monitors finally. Using an Asus 27" QHD and a Dell 24 1080p, might be time to trade up the Dell.

Several of the screengrabs in the docs are now taken from it (but I couldn't tell you which ones off the top of my head). LightWave looks the same as it always has, just bigger - rather than tinier on a bigger screen :)

144244

(and of course, the thumbnail size on here is still as small as ever - click it three times to full the screengrab at full size...)

IIyama 4k 40" : Far from the best monitor I have used :(

I used to love my Iiyama CRT screens back when I had my Amiga, but times have changed... ;)
