    Just using a monitor pixels per inch calulator bro, And it gvies the maths on how sharp it is really blur and ppi is all that matters in gaming. Sven.de says 230ppi undocked and docking is 900p split across your displays size and res. But it scales bad when you go above the pixels for example 1080p on 4K has 4 times the pixels you an only fill one out of four with info. It will be worse on 8k so i hate the effect.

    So to match a switch you need a 19inh 4k display which is incredible compared to docked mode Some may have 4x less. 2560 Ultrawide is a close match for 1:1 which is better especially the 29".

    Looks pretty good but I do get the impression it's stretched on this monitor sometimes (obviously) it is 29in tho.

    I think I'll be grabbing that new 27in, 4k, 144hz ASUS monitor once it's released tho and will probably sell the 2 monitors I have now :)

    But word, I got you on the undocked display. Good to know that considering PPI/DPI it's a good display.

    I will say that my scaling was really fucked up when I was playing on my monitor, then leaned over and grabbed my buddies undocked switch to help him with something. It felt like the camera was fucked up lol,

    I think LG is actually going to repair my monitor luckily, but... I'm debating on picking up a new monitor and just selling the LG and my Asus... The color is just bad on the Asus and I'd rather just use my LG with the vertical line it than deal with bad color reproduction.

    Anyway, to get to my point: people here have any opinions on these 2 monitors?

    or

    not sure how much I'll care about the aesthetics of my monitor and its bezel in reality, which seems to be a majority of the difference...

    i feel like the OMEN brand is super cheap BUT im not too familiar with the AOC, but based on looks and my bias i would go with the AOC

    Nier Automata is unlike any other game you will play. If you like jrpg's it is a nobrainer. Even if you don't it's worth a try. I'm on the 3rd "ending" now. Without giving any spoilers the whole "endings" thing is a bit of a gimmick. It's more like chapters if you will. Like Pulp Fiction if it was a game.

    So, upon researching I found they pretty much have exactly the same panel, except the OMEN has a slightly newer version. All I know is that is has slimmer edges allowing for the smaller bezel on it.

    In reality, I don't care and slim, non-glossy bezels aren't worth the $300 diff for me.

    Waiting to see what happens with my LG but I'm thinking I'll be getting the AOC soon.

    Also, I got my screenprotectors for my switch in and they're dope. No bubbles/dust and it's pretty thick. Now I'll start lugging it around and see how the backpack is.

    81 shrines and like 150 korok seeds in BotW atm. I wasn't going for completionism at first (and still won't be) but I wanna do all shrines, max all relevant armor and maybe complete the compendium and max out inventory. At this pace things will be all good tho cos I wouldn't beat it now even if I had 100%. I want to witness the ending in full glory. Not on some crummy 16:9 monitor, or my broken LG or the small ass switch screen

    edit: word nier automata looked dope, may pick it up. i love jrpgs and especially squareenix for whatever reason
