  3. 27" monitor users, how long did it take you to get used to the size?

I've recently purchased a 27" screen, came from a 21.5" screen. It's like playing games in low FOV now. Everything feels too big.

Just wondering if you guys felt that way, and how long it took you to adjust.
With deeper knowledge and experience, everything becomes more shallow.

I went to 27 from a 34" ultrawide.

So i was a bit disappointed in the size, so I got a second screen on the side.

Been thinking about getting a 40-43" 4K screen for a while now.
If brute force doesn't fix the problem, you're not using enough of it.

i used 3 27" monitors before, but i couldn't stand any of them. i use 24" now and feel it's the perfect size for me. your mileage may vary. less is more.

A couple weeks, but I moved up from a 23", and 24" at work.
It's not the fall that kills you, it's the rapid deceleration.....
