Evidently BenQ is tapping into the as-yet-unexploited market of "people who want to see the individual pixels on their monitors".

Actually 1080p on 27" screen is not that bad. In fact, all the icons, texts and thumbnails are just of the right size in any applications. I sat 70 cm. away from my screen and everything looks great. Beside, gaming on 1080p is optimum and doesn't strain your GPU too much. I tried a 1440p monitor once and don't like it: in-game text are too small, the denser pixels don't look better than 1080p all that much, but the dip in framerate are too obvious.

All in all, let your eyes be the judge.

27" @ 1080p is do-able but not ideal IMO. 27" is probably the biggest you can get away with 1080, after that 1200 is probably better

the ratio is not that eye friendly to me at least.

To much butthurt for the 1080p on a 27" monitor. I use a 42" TV for gaming and stuff and is the best thing ever. The bigger the size, the bigger the distance I am staying from the monitor/tv - better for eyes.

i'm more interested in seeing that VA panels are still being made, there was some other brand a few days ago too

source of interest: i'm on one of benq's VA panels, at the time it was the only option to not settle for TN but also not spend $1,000

but now? what's the point when certain types of IPS are down to $200?
