I'd like to buy this product: http://www.acer.com/ac/en/GB/content/model/UM.HX3EE.001

Is there a way to know what are the dimensions (in centimeters) of the height and weight of the display?
>>
Measure it
>>
>>52580913
I don't have it. I'm planning to buy it.
So there's no way other than measure it, right?
>>
>>52580898

from reichelt.de
>viewable screen size; 69 cm. viewable screen size; 27 Inch.
>>
>>52580898

59.77cm × 33.62cm (23.53" × 13.24")

also learn math.
>>
>>52580941
no, you can enlarge your penis, cut it 2x the sizes of the length. tape them together in a rectangle and there you have it
>>
>>52580898

DPI too low.
Either go 23" 1080p or 27" 1440p.
>>
>>52581355
learn math? I know the pitagora's theorem, man.
But I just have "d". How am I supposed to calc it?
>>
>>52581429
16/9 or 4/3
You have all the information you need.
>>
>>52581429

You also have a ratio of 16:9.
>>
>>52581429
by not being stupid as fuck maybe

your question is like "how do i use google"

It says right there.

Okay, I didn't take that into account. Thank you!

OK?

It's not offensive. It's didactic.
>>
>>52580898

OK, if you promise to stop being a nigger in the future, I'll tell you how to do it.

Go here: sven.de/dpi
Put in 1920, 1080, 27 and get the dimensions and DPI.

>>52581587

First of all, I'm a glorious intellectual and not some retarded pleb.
Second, I didn't read it, I calculated it like you were supposed to do if you knew math.

Ok. I'll post my calcs, since you claim I'm a retard.


|c=27
-|c^2=a^2+b^2 => b=sqrt(c^2-a^2)
|a=b*9/16

a=sqrt(c^2-a^2)*9/16 => a^2=(c^2-a^2)*(9/16)^2 => a^2=c^2*(9/16)^2-a^2**(9/16)^2 =>
=> a^2+a^2*(9/16)^2=c^2*(9/16)^2 => a^2 [1+(9/16)^2]=c^2*(9/16)^2 =>
=> a^2 = c^2*(9/16)^2 / ([1+(9/16)^2]) => a = c*(9/16)/(sqrt(1+(9/16)^2))

a = 27*(9/16)/(sqrt(1+(9/16)^2)) = 13.2370534701 =>
=> b=sqrt(27^2-13.2370534701^2) = 23.5325395024

Also: since you're a glorious intellectual, you should know that those are properly called PPI, not DPI, since monitors don't have points but pixels (yes, I've googled it and I'm learning...but...you're a glorious intellectual!).

ikr

>>52582613
Actually that's the size of the entire monitor (w/o the stand), so the frame too. That's why it's larger.
And thanks for the "idiot" -.-

>>52582613
more of a retard than OP. it was tough but you sure did it.
>>
>>52582507
Are you a guy with a feminine penis?
>>
Since I'm gonna use this monitor to read and rarely watch videos, are 81.59 PPI good enough?
>>
>>52583210
Otherwise, as suggested, I should go for a 27" 1440p, with 108.79 PPI. Does it change a lot?
>>
>>52583210

not for reading
better for videos

At first I thought you were trolling but this is retard week-end so clearly a genuine question.

>>52583933
So a 27" 1440p would be good for reading and watching some video (not pretending an excellent quality, of course) ?
>>
>>52584084
4K for reading. Everything <4K is pleb-tier in 2016 and going forward.
>>
>>52584084

27" 1080p has big pixels. So big that text looks a bit blocky.

23" 1080p has the same number of pixels but they are smaller so text is more crisp.

27" 1400p has more pixels and they are even smaller which makes it better for reading.

Of course if pixels are too small text will be unreadable and you have to change the resolution in the OS to something less than the actual resolution of the display, and the OS must have support for scaling (win10 does this ok. not great but ok). This is true for let's say a 23" 4k monitor.

23" 1080p or 27" 1400p are just about right. Pixels are not too big and not too small.

All of the above work well for video.

The best thing to do is to go into a store and look at a 27" monitor with 1080p and one with 1440p and see the difference and decide which you like more.
>>
>>52584183
I think it's too much. I now have a 141 PPI and it's fine. A 27" (16:9) 4K would have about 200 PPI.
>>
>>52584350
Thank you for the reply.
Just one thing: why would the text be unreadable if the pixels are too small? Shouldn't it be always better?

Excuse-me, I'm just trying to learn.
>>
>>52584350
You forget workspace that comes with higher resolution.

>I think it's too much

>>52584467
If pixels are very very small and the desktop resolution is set to the maximum (native) resolution of the display then the text will be very small.
The characters will be too small to read, unless your eyeballs are very close to the monitor.

>>52584470
never forget
High resolution also means more stuff (windows) can fit on your desktop but if pixels are too small everything will be very small so DPI is important.

You need to increase display size in tandem with the number of pixels
or use a different resolution than the native resolution (if you have lots of pixels and small display)
or you're screwed (if you have a small number of pixels on a large display) .
>>
>>52584624
Ok. Clear now. Thank you! :)
>>
>>52581429
The monitor is 27" inches so this must be true:
h^2+w^2=729

We know the aspect ratio of the monitor and therefore:
w/16=h/9

Isolate h:
h=9w/16=.5625w

We can substitute that in into Pythagorean.
w^2+(.5625w)^2=729 which simplifies to 1.316w^2=729"

729/1.316=~554=w^2, square root that to get w = 23.53"

23.53/16=h/9, therefore height = 13.24"
>>
>>52584999

>tries to explain math
>uses stupid units instead of metric

way to go retard
>>
>>52585063
The monitor is already displayed advertised in imperial units. Converting everything to metric would just add more calculations.
>>
>>52580898
cool op. it is well known that 5^2 = 4^2 + 3^2 is.

4^2 = 16
3^2 = 9

guess which ratio the monitor has. 16:9.

we know that 5^2 which usually is 25 is now replaced with 68.6 cm as it says in the description. we know divide 68.6 through 25 and get 2.744.

now we 16 * 2.744 and 9 * 2.744 and get 43.904 and 24.696 cm for length and height. just to see if thats correct

b = 43.904 cm
a = 24.969 cm
d = 68.6 cm
>>
>>52584999
>>52587002
You guys are both idiots.

Let x be the unit 16 and 9 are multiplied by to get final dimensions:

(16x)^2+(9x)^2=729 simplifies to 337x^2=729

x^2=729/337=2.1632

x=sqrt(2.1632)=1.4708

16x=23.53
9x=13.237
