I’m looking for an external monitor for both programming and gaming. Currently, I’m using a 1080p monitor, but I’m tired of turning my head between the macbook and the monitor when I have to deal with 3+ windows.

So, I think a 2K monitor would be a nice improvement for my QoL, wouldn’t hurt my GPU too much compared to a 4k monitor. Any suggestion or should I scrub the idea?

    i have a benq BL2420PT, if you set the brightness/ red shift correctly you won’t have any eye strain even after 8h work

    I have a Xiaomi 34” ultrawide that I would highly recommend. I personally prefer it to the 2 monitor setup I used to have.

      Do you have any trouble screen sharing from the ultra wide screen?

      Do you have to reduce screen resolution for readability?

        Yeh screen sharing is a pain honestly. What I do now is just share specific windows and then resize them to be half or 2/3 screen, that does the job. Definitely not ideal.

        I keep the resolution at the full 3440x1440.
