New Monitor

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I am going to be in the market soon for a new monitor and was wondering what all of your thoughts were. At the moment I have a basic desk top PC with a Sharpe TV/monitor attached to it. It is okay but lacks quality.

My plan is to purchase a dedicated PC for flight simming in approx 6 months time so in the meantime I am thinking about buying a new monitor for now and in readiness for when the new PC arrives.

I may go for a double, or even triple screen set up in the future so does the purchase I am about to make have an impact on this because rather than splashing out on a lot of monitors now I was going to slowly build them up.

 

Any thoughts?

 

Mike

The curved one Joe had last year as Cosford was nice, but probably no good for multiscreen set up.....

I currently have a triple monitor setup which I have arrived at after going through all sorts of combinations.

 

I have a 40" TV as my main monitor, (these are very cheap now at places like supermarkets) and two supporting 19 inch monitors. I use the supporting monitors for instruments and various other windows such as the GPS and kneeboard etc.The latter two monitors are mounted in a panel.  The instruments I use are provided by SimPlugins Panel Builder

Funny you should say that, yesterday I was running with a 23" tagged alongside my 34" curved and got this result, I'm sure I can add another 23" on the other side if needed but I am running out of desk space!

I would definitely recommend a 34" curved screen as a starting place but they're still very expensive.

I dream of a triple screen setup made up of three 34" curved monitors, like the obit or Joe has. It has superb resolution and clarity.

I'm aiming for a 34" 21x9 curved, like Joe's, but I have to pay off the new PC first!

Clarify please: Do you mean that this image above is a combination of your 34" plus the 23" stitched together as an "extended monitor"?

Or is this just the view through just the 34" screen, which you use in combo with a 23 on the side for "windows" and "FS utilities"?

Thanks for the replies all, sorry for the lateness of this but I have moved house and the internet has not been connected yet so grabbing a bit of time at work.

Sorry Matt, only just saw your post, I had the sim spanning both screens so it is an extended monitor as you say.

So, what are you going to do with that 4K screen of yours if you do buy three of those curved things?? ;)

Ah Micke that would be used for Plan-G. 

With my eyesight every pixel counts!

Thanks Brett, the sad thing is I am the boss but we are so busy at the moment I feel guilty playing around on here whilst all the staff are run off their feet. Still needs must :D
