39 inch Seiki LED HDTV/Monitor under $500.00.  I wanna get this for FSX.  Any idea if it would be compatible with FSX and really look great?

It should work just fine. I have a 42" HDTV/HDMI that I use primarily as a main monitor for my sim machine.

How does it look 1920x1080 on a 42'' for flight simming? I was wondering if the image would be too "grainy", since the effective dot pitch is higher than a PC monitor. Also, what Anti-Aliasing level do you use?

Purely depends on how far you are sitting from the screen. The closer you get, the more likely you are to see the pixels and any artifacts. That's why simply getting a bigger monitor doesn't always work.

For my purposes, it works just fine. Understand though that I'm just not that picky about the fine details. My eyesight is such that mostly what I need is simply a BIGGER display. B)

 

My 42" HDTV is wall mounted, and I sit about 32" from the screen.

 

To be honest, I don't even use NVidia Inspector. My settings are from the FSX GUI and are Bi-Linear filtering and AA checked off. That's it. :P

I bought the new LG29'' Ultra-wide (LG 29EA93-P) to help me concentrate better.  Check out the comparison below.. 

 

Comparisons from a 16:9 to 21:9

As you can see from the aspect ratio you get a better perspective with the ultra-wide.

Hi,

 

I purchased a 55" that I wanted to use for my flight sim setup... Viewing that large a monitor at a resolution of 1920x1080 looks terrible. It was so bad, I "IMMEDIATELY" put the TV in the family room and went back to my triple monitor setup at a resolution of 5760x1200.

Absolutely. It's resolution that is the key. That's why the release of the new 4K TV's is so exciting. It will be a few years before they come down in price and make them a viable option, but when they do, it will be awesome to have such high resolution (3840 x 2160) pixels on a 48" screen sitting maybe only three feet or so away from the screen. It would effectively offer the same quality, ie pixel size as viewing a 24" TV from the same distance!!

Oh man, old school ;)

4K TV's are going to get much cheaper in 2014, but I would avoid this particular model, 4K is achieved at only 30Hz ... that's not going to hack it for FSX or PC output (you need 60Hz minimum at 4K, 120Hz is better).

Out of curiousity, what resolution are you running?

 

eh nm, found the specs, 2560 x 1080 I presume. I am really thinking of going this route. Two of those put together would be phenominal!

If I were actually doing any "flying" it would probably matter more to me. As it is, 99.9% of the time I'm only loading/editing/reloading/editing/reloading...

 

...ad infinitum as I work on my various projects. :LMAO:

That's my fear of becoming a 3rd party content provider ... no time to enjoy flying the sim(s).

Yep! Since I do this full-time, my usual day begins at 7am and ends at 7pm, with occasional breaks to change the oil and flush the radiator. By that time, the very last thing I want to do is look at any flight simulator program! :Silly:

 

After fixing supper and cleaning up, if there's nothing worth watching on TV I retire to my bedroom to read a dead-tree book for an hour or two before sleep time. :lazy:

I've played with a variety of monitor configurations, from 3x 1920 x 1080 (5760x1080), to 2x 1920 x 1080 stacked (1920x2160), to a 42" hdtv with and without other monitors.  I really enjoy the 42", but my pc workspace just doesn't have the room for that full time.

 

But when 4k hdtv's get cheap enough, there's going to be some rearranging!

Me too, love it!  Tomorrow will start building new rig with Asus Z87 Expert with 4770K + Samsung 840 Pro 256GB.  How am I going to sleep tonight.   :p0504:

I love the 29'' so much I bought 2.  I tried linking them together for a ultra wide, but it will not play..  Tried all combinations and when I got there it was horrible as the aircraft was split in 2..
