Need some help here. I'm deciding between the Samsung KS 8500 and the Sony X900e at their 55" size for PC Desktop Usage.
I will be seating 80cm-140cm away from the TV as I do not wish to use Windows scaling and will be leaving it at the the default of 100%.
My main concerns are:
1. At that size and seating distance, would I be better off with a curve display? This is because I'm guessing the text and other contents being displayed on the far left and right of the screen may appear skewed to me since I'll be seating at the dead center and looking at the corners would be at quite an angle.
2. Has anyone ever tried using their 55" tv as a pc monitor or am i the only crazy one?
3. I was initially considering the KS 8500 but after reading the KS 8500's owner's thread I'm leaning more toward the x900e even though its flat and more expensive (at least there are fewer complains in terms of backlight bleed and build quality).
4. Would it be a wise decision to forego the curve screen and get the x900 55" flat panel. This would also mean trading picture and build quality at the expense of a possible slight discomfort in the neck area as I may have to pan my neck left and right should i open more than 2 windows in the desktop setting at 100% windows scaling.
5. Should I wait it out for 2018 and in hopes of sony or any other brand releasing a curved full-array backlit panel? Or just go with the X9000e?
Would be great if you could share your experience using a TV as a PC Monitor running Windows preferably.
- Did you use 100% windows scaling?
- Why did you go for the curve/flat panel?
- What is the size of the TV and the distance you're sitting away from it?
Any feed backs, will be greatly appreciated!
