    Default Anyone find that large monitors usually detracts from gaming?

    So I been using a 19 inch monitor and then recently switch to a 25 inch monitor.

    The 19 inch monitor was far more enjoyable for gaming since I didn't have to keep moving my neck like I have to when using the 25 inch monitor.

    The 25 inch monitor is great for web browsing and watching movies, but in terms of gaming it didn't really do a good job at ergonomics.

    Smaller screens do make it easier to get a full-view of the game without having to constantly shift eyes and/or neck. I'm perfectly happy with my 19" monitor, which has an actual 16 inches of screen. Unless you intend to be really far away from your monitor, I wouldn't invest in one much larger than 20 inches.

    I have 2 24" and a 22". I never considered them detracting from gaming. You just need to get used to it.

    im planning on to get 30'ish inches LED tv and use it as a monitor, but is it true they get image burn (image retention) from static images? :<

    I dont... Even...
    There is zero difference between a small monitor at close or a large monitor far away.
    Adjust the resolution. Monitors are completely customizable and distance from your eyes means it's not your eyes that are the problem. Change the resolution.
