How far do you sit from your screen when working in your (semi) permanent working location (assuming you use a DAW)? was just measuring from screen to eyeball and got about 28" with my current setup when in a relaxed typing position - which I assume is a fairly typical distance since this is just a cheapo flatpack desk from staples
I'm contemplating increasing my desk space by putting a monitor stand behind my desk and putting the LCDs on it - trying it out right now with one of my LCDs and it's not shabby, although I increased DPI slightly to compensate - the monitor now sits about 34" from my eyeball when I'm in a relaxed typing position
who else has tried this and how did it work out for you? a friend said he tried something similar but he didn't like having the screen that far away (but maybe he just needs to wear his glasses?)
It's an interesting question because if you wear reading glasses, it becomes a real factor especially if other gear is further away. I have two 22" LCD monitors but I have been thinking about replace them with a 37" 120Hz. Getting old sux.
Fairly close. I use my desk to prop my arm which props my head, a lot. To compensate, I dimmed my monitor and I have a dim light that sits at an angle as to not directly light the screen. So now I can sit close and I've convinced myself I am not doing that much damage to my eyes!
