I'm looking for a large screen monitor for a new workstation, rather than the dual monitors I usually run.
Has anyone tried Dell's 43" monitor - P4317Q or have another option?
I can't read the text in SWX on my 65" 4k TV.
I guess if you put the 43" 2ft away it'll be readable.
It'll be lots of looking up to see top half of screen.
I deal with a lot of large assemblies created by others, some of them have dimensions in 1000's of feet.
A 12 sq.ft. monitor would be useful.
I was excited when I plug my laptop to the 65".
Until I fire up CAD and I can't read anything. The model looks great.
Gotta try some games on it.
Setting Windows scale to 125% help but I hate to upscale display.
43" 4k would be nice at work.
My eye level is just above center of the 27". 43" would be a lot to look up to
BTW 8k is coming.
Read this (as an alternative):
Large Curved Monitors - who is using one?
Yes, I read that post, a curved monitor would be fine if it's vertical res is high enough. Have you seen any tall-ish curved monitors?
A 4:3 would be ideal for the majority of the assemblies I work with.
And thanks for your input and everyone else.
I use Solidworks all day on a Samsung N40MU6300 40-Inch 4K Ultra HD Smart LED TV with a Quadro K1200. I had some trouble getting a mini displayport to HDMI adapter and an HDMI cable that worked at 4K 60Hz, but once I did I have had zero problems. I don't think it's too big, but I wouldn't want anything much bigger.
How close to that monitor is comfortable distance?
Do you have any 4k icon issues?
I sit a little over 24" from the screen. My eyes are aligned with the center of the screen both vertically and horizontally. I have Windows 10 scaling set to 125% and zero issues in Solidworks or Mastercam with icons.
The other issue I have seen is mouse speed. If my Samsung is on default video settings the mouse seems very sluggish. As soon as I discovered PC Mode everything was great. When PC Mode is activated it disables a bunch of the TV's features, but really makes things snappy.
I'll check out the Samsung, thanks!
LG makes a nice 34" 4k curved monitor that is very adjustable and is cheap compared to some at $600. Also has split screen software.
Make sure everyone watches for two things. What is your video card capable of, and what is the monitor capable of (resolution), otherwise you'll just have a big screen with no more real-estate than before.
Model is LG 34UC80-B it's the one I want....
I've had good experience with LG TV's but the 21:9 ratio is a bit too short for my needs. I'm looking for 16:9 as a better fit.
The new system will have a Quadro P2000, max res. 5120 x 2880.
Thanks for the input John
