I need to replace my 24" TN panel (1920x1080) Samsung SyncMaster 2494HM and could use some help. Running Windows 10 with an i7-3770K 3.50GHz CPU and GeForce GTX 970 video card. Between my age (retired) and the fact that I use the system more for research and typing than gaming (primarily Diablo III), screen clarity is becoming more and more important.
Although I want to purchase a better quality and slightly larger 27" monitor, I'm also familiar with the Windows 10 blurry font issue. So I'm trying to figure out two things...
(1) I was thinking of buying a monitor with an IPS panel but have no experience with them, although it seems light bleeding is a common issue. I've also seen references to VA, PLS, etc. etc. etc. but no idea how they compare. A friend has the same display I'm using now and he said his other two TN displays are clearer. So maybe I should stick with a TN display.
(2) I was also thinking a 27" 4K display would require me to use 150% for my display settings, which would steer me clear of using 125% which isn't as optimized as 150% and above. But how would I know ahead of time if 150% will give me the correct size.
Hope the above made sense. Thanks for reading and any advice would be appreciated.
