  1. Too big to replace a monitor

    Author: Know-It-All42 29.10.20 - 12:46

    I have a very large workspace here with a 2 meter wide table for my wife and me and a shelf above it, which is then 58cm high and that is a lot of space and much larger than any normal monitor would ever need. So and the TV here is now 60 CM high. wtf.

    What I mean by that is that you have to go around in a circle with your head to focus everything at a distance of half a meter

    This is no longer a monitor, please stop selling it as a monitor

    The article also says that it is a television and openly asks why OLED panels are only used in televisions, but not in monitors. Due to the latter point, Golem only uses the smallest version of the television as a monitor. Everything is in the article.

    Once OLED, always OLED ..

    That is exactly my wish as well.

    Once ultrawide, always ultrawide.

    In the last few years I have increasingly approached (and got used to) large televisions as monitors and am currently quite satisfied with a 42-inch TV from LG. The only difference is that when the sun shines through the window next to it, my model reflects considerably more than its predecessor (a now outdated 4K television from TCL with 39 inches).

    I can help anyone who doesn't want to fill their desk with their TV monitor with a single word: wall bracket.

    But then please also have a movable wall bracket, because then you can position the TV differently depending on the situation. The size makes it at least quite comfortable to have several windows open next to each other at the same time. This is practically nothing more than a multi-monitor setup with just one device.

    To be honest, I don't have to have it bigger than my current 42 inches. You often turn and bend your head when you have the usual "monitor distance". But if in doubt, I can move my desk a little backwards, but that doesn't add any value compared to a smaller television.

    2160p at 30 "and 120Hz with OLED for 1000 € should be feasible. But unfortunately this is not even really available as IPS for the price.

    Would then take it immediately.

    Well, that might be cool for gaming or watching Netflix, but at work it sounds like anything but a healthy ergonomic working posture / sitting position.
    Then it would be better to use Ultrawide, if such sizes, you only have to move your head from left to right (as with dual monitor operation) and not from top to bottom.

    Everything that has to do with sitting is unhealthy and ergonomic. It doesn't matter how big the screen is.

    What I find unergonomic:
    Window behind me
    Window in front of me
    Too bright surroundings

    What I like about my workplace:
    32 inch for the source code and debugger
    Notebook monitor for the browser
    and 24-inch for the browser debugger
    At the moment I only find it annoying when the monitor is higher up, tilting the head is annoying, so the monitors are attached to arms and can be perfectly adjusted.

    But basically you should move more than just sit there. It's hard to fall, but is healthier in all respects.

    Ahem, but that's not a black and white question, between "totally optimal ergonomics" and "I give a shit about every workplace ergonomics" there are many intermediate stages, and a monitor that is too big in front of the nose where you have to turn your head in every direction seeing everything is one of them.

    Yes, that's all healthy too.

    I bought a 42 "ultrawide monitor, which also has a PIP function with which I can operate several devices in parallel (eg work laptop and customer laptop). Before that, I had a 24" monitor at home and, like you, browser and Skype on the laptop -Display underneath, I found it rather sub-optimal to look up and down, in addition to the fact that my eyes are no longer the best, and I found it quite exhausting to read the small writing on the laptop.

    > But basically you should move more than just sit there anyway. It's hard to fall, but is healthier in all respects.

    Jo, that comes along, and the home office is good for you, I often do a few stretching exercises in between or romp around on the punching bag, that would have been rather strange in the office ;-)
