Hi guys.
Looking for some guidance, advice, thoughts and opinions ( again... whistling.gif )

Me: Newb. computer enthusiast ( but with very little spare time to learn ).
Gamer: No. Coder: No. I.T: No. Watch movies: No. ..pretty boring trash.gif
Internet junkie: Yes!

Currently I have 3 x 24" Acer 144hz gaming monitors.
Why did I buy 144hz monitors if I don't game or do movies? They had a killer deal on newegg 2 years ago and I couldn't resist.
Why 3 monitors? Because my PC and GPU has no problems running 3 monitors. And it's handy as $%^$#^. Not to mention cool.

I'm seriously thinking of ditching these monitors... They are good monitors but there is 1 thing that drives me nuts. It has a terrible delay when trying to wake up from sleep or turning on in the am. I can turn on all 3 monitors. Boot my PC, sign in and be on the desktop screen waiting before the display comes on and I don't need 144hz refresh rate.

I have plenty of room on my desk to go bigger. I'd like to do 3x28" monitors. 3 x 28" monitors might seem huge to some of you. But after using 3 x 24" monitors for a couple of years 24" is no big deal.

I've debated going the 2k or 4k route. But again I don't game & I don't watch movies. I'd pull the trigger on 2k or 4k but the reduced size of images and font would drive me nuts. Tiny font on a 28" monitor would make me go insane. I'm sure there might be software out there or programs to adjust this. But I'm not sure. So that is why a standard 1080 display is the way I'm leaning towards.

I'd like to hear some of your opinions and experiences with doing 3 monitors this big.

This is what I have: https://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...-642-_-Product

This is what I'm looking @: https://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...0JC-002S-000E0

BTW: What would you guys suggest selling the 3x Acer 24 144hz monitors that I have @? $500?, $450? $400? I'm pretty anal. All boxes, styrafoam, papers, booklets, CD's etc... still tucked away in a closet. As a matter of fact I still have the protective plastic films on the bezels of the monitors.

Thank you everyone.

First, for selling the current monitors, look at what they sell for today and cut that price in half.  Don't plan on making much money off of the used monitors.


I guess my question would be why do you want the larger monitors?  The resolution is the same for both, so essentially everything will be a little bit bigger.  I've got three 27" on my home setup and I'm getting old, this is my 50th trip around the sun, and my eyes need things bigger.


My three monitors I have a web browser on the left screen, World of Warcraft on the center, and a movie or TV show on the right.
