    The options are:

    7680x4320 (8K FUHD);
    3840x2160 (4K UHD);
    2560x1440 (WQHD);
    1920x1080 (FHD).

    I don't find the option to create a poll.
    Can a moderator add the Poll with the 4 choices as listed and indefinite period for receiving answers.

    Thank you!

    No ultrawide options? :(

    Is this for any particular usage or just for a general idea of the most popular size(s)?

    5K 5120x2160 can go to 4K and you state that with a comment.

    A general idea of the most popular sizes and an industry trend.

    I’ve already got 4K but if I was to buy a replacement I’d want another 4K with high refresh rate and preferably HDMI 2.1, DisplayPort 2.0 and hopefully DisplayPort alt mode over USB4 Type-C.

    I also have a 4K monitor, the LG 24UD58-B that is quite a solid quality product.

    Voted 4k, but I think my next monitor will be a 3480x1600, for the width of 4k, but ~30% less pixels to drive in game.

    Would love a 42" OLED, but I think the risk of screen burn would be too much given I spend 8hrs/day working with quite static window borders :/

    Maybe you can use screen savers often.
    It's not like you stay the entire duration of the work day in front of the monitor.

    The difference between same sized 24" FHD and UHD is night and day. It's like you look at completely different picture qualities.

    1440p for productivity, but often game in a 1080p window.
    imo hardware isn't really solid at 1440p yet, going 4K now is way too early.

    I voted for 4k but it had to be 120hz minimum preferably 144hz for online multiplayer games and also the pukka HDMI 2.1 but still waiting for a decent 32" monitor to appear.

    I have a 27" 4K for second PS5
    And 32" WQHD for home office. If buying today would get an ultrawide or 4K.

    Currently got 1440 144hz but it’s 4 years old, my next monitor will be 4K. Waiting for LG to release their 42” oled next year to see if I like that.

    I shouldn't laugh, but i did :D


    1440p 16:9 for me. It's what i currently have and i don't tend to play new games. Doubt i'll pick up a new monitor any time soon until GPU prices do something. I would really like a high end monitor, or a IPS for first person shooter games as my current one is VA and is nice for everything but.

    Ideally i'd like a 1080p TV, 4k on a TV is just pointless for me.
