My much loved Dell 32" Monitor has to go as it won't fit in my new workspace....so looking to downsize to probably the 24". Would be interested in a swap + cash if anyone is looking to go up?

 

It is this model - https://www.dell.com/en-nz/shop/dell-ultrasharp-32-4k-usb-c-monitor-u3219q/apd/210-aqwr/monitors-monitor-accessories

 

 

 

No issues - cosmetically it has a few marks on the stand... and the Dell logo sticker on the front came off when I was cleaning it (Just with a microfibre cloth!)

Have the original box and manual... not sure what cables it came with but if you let me know what type you need I can include one.

 

$800 - shipping would be approx $30 North Island - $50 South Island. Otherwise pickup from Hamilton.

Hi, I have a Dell P2416D, a 24" QHD (1440p) monitor that I have been thinking about updating now that I work from home far more.  However I am unsure if the jump to 32" would be too big?

Also, depends on how much you are willing to trade for?  I am Auckland BTW.

I have a 27" 1440p and 32" 4k. 32 is unusable for normal use. 32 for movie, design, photos, video editing but not for other work. 27 is perfect. 16:9




Involuntary autocorrect in operation on mobile device. Apologies in advance.

Depending on what you are doing. I've recently upgraded to 32" QHD from WUXGA

 

For powerpoint it's amazing - see everything! including notes and everything.

 

For two word docs or one doc one webpage - awesome.

 

For one thing only - web or whatever, yeah it's a bit big.

 

Almost think about it as two workspaces side by side (two documents)- or a workspace with a menu surrounding it (powerpoint)

I use it on a Mac and predominantly for Lightroom so it didn't feel too big for that.... ideally I don't want to go down from 4k as when you're looking between the Macbook retina screen and the bigger one - if it's not high DPI then it looks ugly by comparison. Not sure if windows has the same issue but I definitely noticed it when I had a 1440 ultrawide previously.

That's exactly it, bigger high resolution monitors for general productivity can't really be thought of as a single window monitor sort of thing outside of specific use cases, usually photography/videography related. I have a 34" WQHD monitor and two windows open is about perfect. I reckon it would be the same with this size/resolution/aspect-ratio. Hell, I used a 43" 4k monitor for a bit that felt good with six windows snapped.

YMMV. A lot. Everybody's usage situation is different, and some of us have middle-aged eyes. 
I used to think I'd never need anything larger than my first monitor, a 17" CRT.

 

I translate text using a 32" 4K monitor with the work software maximised, and it is wonderfully sharp and easy on the eyes.

 

I'd absolutely use a 34" in the same way if I could physically fit it on the desk along with the other monitors - a 28" to the left, and two 24" above each other to the right for reference docs, mail, chat, etc.
