    What's everyone's thoughts on monitor resolution?

    Is 4k OTT?

    Personally I don't think it's over the top St all. I don't use them to WORK at 4k though. I really enjoy the extra space running at 2560*1440, so that's the mimimum I buy now. My next round will be 4k's, as the way other apps look is incredible.

    I don't think id run it in 4k for Revit. Even if Autodesk has all their issues resolved, the third party developers don't ALL have it resolved.

    But 1080... I couldn't do it anymore. It feels so small.

    Thanks. What are the potential pitfalls of running Revit at 4k?

    If you are running revit at 4K with the scaling at 100%, there probably aren't any. Aside from possibly going blind.

    but a lot of people are running it at 4 k, and then upping the DPI scaling to compensate for the size of the icons and everything. If you are doing that, then it becomes a game of: have all of the developers of all of the addends you're using, and the developers of Revit, tested their application against the resolution and DPI scaling you are trying to use?

    I haven't messed with it extensively, but other people on the hardware forum here have. Different versions of Revit and different addins all react slightly differently, depending on DPI scaling. Somewhere at or around 150% some apps start to have a really jacked up user interface.

    Dell U2718Q UltraSharp 27" 4K Monitor (3840 x 2160) with infinity edge) is what I was looking at, that or the iiyama 28" 4k.

    Are there any other alternatives worth considering?

    Man I actually like the Dell Premier Color series of panels. If color accuracy is high on your priority they are excellent. I have a few of them at one of my clients office and they are nice.

    We have a couple of U2718Q. We like them!

    But the next ones already ordered are the U3219Q. More real estate and I find the pricing balanced €600+VAT.
