Building a new PC sim desk here quite soon, the L shaped one I have just now is past its best and just plain awkaward, so one long desktop unit will be built here soon … most of the parts are here just now actually, a solid wooden door, adjustable height legs, under desk cable tidy tray ETC.
With MS FS2020 around the corner and perhaps the inevitable Nvidia RTX 3080 Ti this year too, thought now would be a good idea to try a 4k large screen.
I’m doing OK for my hobby rooms 2 sim monitors still, a Dell 30" and a Dell 34" ultrawide curved monitor, prefer the 16:10 aspect ratio, for a new screen it would need to be 40" + anything above 50" would be too big for my space I guess? Maybe not … UI scaling is important too for high res reading small print stuff.
Pro’s and Cons I see so far, dedicated PC 4K screens seem to have more options such as USB hub n more, TV 4K screens seem to be cheaper … used to be TV screens of same spec were awful for Flight sim, but this does not seem to be the case any more, many modern large screen 4K TV’s are being used by simmers in the community and i see no real complaints.
If anyone here is using a large screen 4K TV as a monitor for simulation, would love to hear your feedback and name/model.number ETC.
I do have an Oculus Rift, but unfortunately with broken neck now bolted back together, its just there for once in a while WOW factor … I NEED to sim on a fixed screen
