Online pixel density calculator

In the wrong hands, this could spell the end of the world.

That website is fake-- I can see the pixels.

I still wish I could find a 1080p or even 720p screen that was HUGE. You know, without having to pay 20x as much for something that can be viewed from across an arena.

Unless you need color calibration or other fancy features, wouldn’t a TV set do the trick?


#6

I do all MY computing on an old CRT TV, works fine for me

those giant 42" 4k monitors will actually have rather chunky pixels–108 ppi–and are not what I’m looking for

I use a 42" 1080p TV as a computer monitor and I love it. You have to have a deep desk, but it allows you to put it much further away, leaving the eyes less strained; it’s like the eye rest exercises of looking out a window every hour. You could easily make a 42" 4k screen be retina with a little distance.

Too small. (give me 1mm dot pitch!) I guess what I really need is a nice, bright dlp short-throw projector. I’ll get around to it some day.
