Things to Worry About with Multiple Monitors?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Is there anything to worry about if you were to have a 24" 1440p and a 27" 4k monitor or 24" and 27" 1440p monitors?

Text and images might appear smaller on a 24 inch 1440p or 27 inch 4k, because of scaling, the text might be really small. A cheap fix is to scale your display upto 125%

 

Also, sometimes the actual video from input device could go off the screen. This is called overscan when the display input video goes off the monitor's screen. A cheap fix is to scale the display down

I have ran different size and resolution monitors for a very, very long time. Currently I have a 3440x1440 ultrawide with a 1920x1200 vertical next to it. I have never had a single issue with any of the setups. Yes, things will look slightly different size wise from one to the other, and if you move a window from one to the other that is not full screen, it will not look and scale correctly, but thats also a weird issue to worry about. Not often you span a program across the bezel of the monitors... so weird in fact I can't even find an example image on google to show you.

 

It will be fine :)
