I've got two monitors at home. Acer 27 inches. Both monitors running 1920 x 1080. I haven't got the need for more than this. Any larger, and they won't fit on my desk!

Same as Nik. But I've got 24" instead of 27". Both running at 1920x1080. Would like a third screen further down the line but my mount only has space for two (and I'd have to move my tower off the desk onto the floor too...)

Edit: Alternatively considering wall-mounting a 40", 4K monitor for watching films / luxury screen. This just further illustrates my point that it's mostly a luxury thing. And not absolutely necessary unless you're editing film in 4K or some crazy shit.

Same as Nik.

Infact, i think it was the old man himself who recomended those monitors to me. And i love them.

4k grows on you, at first its like "eh, just more pixels" but then after you've used it for a while and see a HD screen you go "ew fack, wtf is that!?"

I have run either 1600x1200 or 1920x1200 for so long that the x1080 resolution just seems too flat/slim now. which means constant scrolling(all 120px) and annoying issues with remote desktops, because of the frame around the window. seriously thinking of buying a 4k monitor myself these days.

Terribly boring signature.

We bought a ultrawide at the office but i dont like it. its 25" with a 2560x1080 resolution. Its just to low. Even stretching the vertical resolution to 1440 seems little improvement so i would go for the 4k monitor(3840x2160 right?)

ultrawide 2560x1080 with two sides attached at 1920x1080 and portrait 1200x1600. It's pretty good to have this wrap around but the 1080 vertical on the main is a tad tight.

I wish I had of chosen the 3440x1440 in the end for the difference in price it would have been a good trade off but 4k would have been a step too far, for the price, IMHO. x

4K all the way for me.
I don't understand how people like lower res screens. When I look at them it's like "Ew! look at all the blocky pixels!"

Dub, I'm starting to lose my sight. I find a large monitor with a "lower" resolution more comfortable for viewing than a super-high res monitor.

I'm with Nik, two 1920x1080 monitors is just right for me. Some folks at work have 4K monitors, I find myself constantly leaning in just so I can read things, haha! I like having two physical monitors instead of one large one, it mentally helps me organize things better on the screen, I'm just used to it I guess. -
