Time to upgrade your monitor

  • Text can’t be made look good on low-resolution displays.
  • High-PPI displays are now a commodity, it’s time to switch.
  • Notebooks are ok, but a standalone monitor is always better.
  • 4k monitor only makes sense with 2× / 200% scaling.
  • If you want to go further, there are now affordable 4k @ 120 Hz options.
