Thinking of getting a 4K 32inch Monitor ( help)

Hi all. I'm thinking of upgrading to a nice 32inch 4K. monitor. from 32 inch 1440p one

But I'm worried that the native resolution of 3840x2160 will be real small on a 4k 32 inch display in Mac OS

would I have to go  to a 34 inch to get  4K native resolution 3840x2160?

Does anyone have any knowledge about this please?

My 5 years old iMac 27" has things too small at native 4K resolution, as the 29" 4K monitor connected in my hack. Both of them are working at 2560x1440.

I don't know the monitor size that lets to get 4K with an acceptable text size. Maybe 34 but I'm thinking about 38".

Note that age and quality of the user's vision also has an influence. Those with better eyesight can use smaller text sizes.

@miliuco I just don't want to spend  big money and have to scale down from the 4K resolution because its to small for me to read.

@BALDY_MAN - Hi Bro isn't that down to Old Age bringing on bad eye sight? I am in that club, without my glasses I can't see 4K or even Half a K :hysterical: Good luck on your purchase though. :thumbsup_anim:

With a large monitor I'm tired to rotate my head left and right. My neck is not a hinge.

I think the large monitor is for picture or movie but not for text.


PS. Clover with svg themes will be looking fine on any sized monitor.

Гигабайт M32U:

  Разрешение: 3840 x 2160 (2160p/4K UHD 1 — сверхвысокая четкость)

  Пользовательский интерфейс выглядит так: 3840 x 2160 при 98,00 Гц

  Глубина кадрового буфера: 30-битный цвет (ARGB2101010)


I wonder why you have a resolution of 3840 by 2160, and for some reason I have 6016 by 3384?

Connecting via Displayport

UPD. The question is removed - I have scaling enabled))

I found this on the internet

You won’t need to choose a display that is exactly 110PPI or 220PPI. A slightly lower value will mean text and interface elements are larger. A slightly higher value will mean text and interface elements are smaller. You can use Sven Neuhaus’s PPI calculator to work out the pixel density of any display you’re interested in. Here’s a list of common external displays, with the 110PPI and 220PPI zones indicated.
