Screen Count and Size

Hi all

I was wondering what you guys were using for screen size and how many you use for Eve?

I was thinking of getting a 4k at some point but maybe I'd be better off getting another 1080p screen.

Thanks,
Avrin

Re: Screen Count and Size

Hi!

I have been using 3x 24" screens with 1080 res on all three. That was great.

Now i only use two of them because my wife "stole" one :P

But I have been considering getting one 30"(4K) screen and use the two 24"(1080), one on each side. I think that would be a really good setup. :D

In the end I'd go for at least one big monitor the screen-space is awesome!

Very nice setup. Not sure I have the desk space for three.

i run a 27" with 1440p and another 24" with 1080p, will most likely replace the small one with another 27" in the future

Re: Screen Count and Size

my primary rig is a couple year old Dell Alienware 17, so I have the builtin 17" display @ 1920x1080, typically I have an attached 24" 1920x1080 monitor attached. For now, I've always had EVE open on monitor in "Fixed Window" mode and laptop builtin display for general web browser / looking stuff up.

my spouse works from home, and we share office space, so I have to be careful about limiting my footprint, but I am tempted to get an ultrawide monitor (21:9)

Re: Screen Count and Size

Some great setups here. Eve obviously benefits from the extra real estate. When I fly in fleets I can barely see any of the space background with all the open windows. :)

Re: Screen Count and Size

Wow...great setups!

I myself just have my widescreen laptop display with an old smallish screen on the side..nothing fancy. BUT I highly recommend a second screen. Makes life so much easier!

Re: Screen Count and Size

I have a few setups at home.

1) I have a 3 x 24" desktop that I either run EVE in 1920x1080 on a single screen, or run across all three at 5760x1080. The later looks great, but there is an issue in EVE where you can't 'zoom out' like you can on a single screen. I enjoy it for Exploration as day to day stuff as I can move all the other windows to the side screens, but I can't see combat being awesome.

2) A desktop with a 32" 4k screen, looks great but chugs a bit.

3) 2015 15" Retina Macbook Pro. Ironically I find myself opting to play on this the majority of the time. Portability and all that. :)
