    Purchased New Monitor - LG-27UD69P-W - good for upscaling?

    My biggest use of my computer is research, reading web articles and working with text documents. I also do some photo editing.

    I understand windows 10 has font scaling and that with the native resolution of these 4K monitors, I will want to increase font and icon size for viewing and working comfort.

    I currently use Windows7Pro with a 24 inch LCD HD 1920 x 1200 monitor (Samsung SyncMaster 245bw) and I even upscale my fonts and icons for viewing on this monitor (old eyes). I use Clear Type text and upscale @ 125%. This monitor still performs beautifully for me in windows 7Pro but is so old, I'm not certain if the drivers would even install on a new computer.

    My main purpose for purchasing a new monitor is a larger screen.

    My question is, for my purposes, would I be better off to go with a monitor with a smaller native resolution? I need crisp, clear text.

    I've searched the forum but most monitor discussions I've found concern gaming. The same for monitor reviews and YouTube video reviews. All seem to discuss gaming. I hate to open and install this monitor and then find it's not a good choice for my intended purpose.

    If you do a lot of work with documents, what type of monitor do you suggest?

    The main consideration is deciding on the Display Panel technology the main two being TN and IPS(PLS).
    IPS being a lot less angular dependent.
    Read up on the relative merits.

    I always stick with approx 100 dpi for a screen, for me there is no gain going higher. Your example of the Samsung 245bw is roughly that dpi.
    Thus the larger the screen the higher the pixels required. I always work out what the dpi is for a given screen.
    If you stick with the same dpi number then it should be OK.

    You don't need a monitor driver. The modern monitor connections are HDMI and DisplayPort. EDID is used for monitor data back to the video source.

    I don't care for jargon like a "4K monitor".

Hi. Is this where I can ask about PC monitors? I'm going to buy a new screen soon, but I have no idea where to end my journey. I was hoping that I can get any advice from this forum, if it's ok?
I'd like to see displayed in real time, what programs on my computer are accessing the internet, and the IP addresses they are trying to access. Both outgoing and incoming. Is there a good (hopefully freeware) app that will show me that info?
Is a Monitor with 7ms Good for Gaming? in PC Custom Builds and Overclocking
I got 2 questions about a monitor with 7ms I'm dying of buying: 1) Is a monitor with 7ms response time good for gaming? Will there be noticeable lag? 2) Would a monitor with 4ms be as unnoticeable in lag as one with 7ms?
