27" 2K Monitor but text too small

Recommended Posts

Hello everybody,

I am using a 27" 2K Monitor (recently upgraded from 24" FullHD), however I have still trouble with camera view and text size, I actuallly hoped that my new monitor will help a little. When I fly in the Fenix, it hard to read the waypoints on the ND. If I zoom in too much, I cannot see the engine instrument display. Of course I could just move the camera view little to the right, but then it looks odd to me, and taxing is weird. It there a solution for this?

What's you're zoom level? running a 27" 2K local here and it's fine for me personal to read... (I'm using zoom-level 50)
But on the other hand I'm using Track IR so natural to view all displays from different angles.

I have the same display and resolution and have no problems either. Perhaps you are sitting too far away from the display?

If it's not too late to send back the 27" screen, I would so. I have 2 screens on my desk, a 24" and a 32" screen. I can read everything on the 32" inch screen and nothing on the 24" screen. And the 24" is actually a bit closer. Both are 2K displays. 

First, I go bigger. Then I do a resolution increase, when  $ allow upgrading cpu, gpu, and monitor. But first priority for me was to upgrade in size.

Do like I do -- and a lot of other simmers -- buy a big screen 4K TV (mine is 75") and use that for your display. You won't have any trouble reading the text.

Given the length of a flight stick cord I would imagine you would stuff your eyes up by sitting too close to that monster. 😀

What in-game resolution and render are you running ?

4K with Render Scale set to 70. Settings are about halfway split between High and Ultra.

What, 75" ?!    When I was growing up a screen that size was called a drive-in movie!  😉

My vision is very poor. I really don't have much choice. The price of these big-screen TVs has gone down tremendously in recent years. When I was growing up in the 1960s, the rule-of-thumb was that your TV should cost you about one month's pay. Today it's more like two or three days' pay. And of course today's TVs are a thousand times better. Some people object to using a TV with video games on the basis that a lot of TVs can't do a 120 or 240 refresh rate. But let's be honest: nobody is going to get 120 or 240 FPS out of MSFS anyway. I keep my frames locked to 30 and all is well using the TV with MSFS.

If you are referring to the menus and texts in the sim, they can be adjusted in the general options settings.

I feel this is just an issue by design running 1440P on a 27 inch display.

Smaller denser pixels unfortunately. I personally can't sim/game in 2D on my PG278QR.

Some people prefer the denser pixels over actual size of the image, I do not.

But 1440p and 1080p on a 27" screen are identical in terms of the size of things in game when flying.

Yes desktop apps are smaller - but a full screen MSFS is identical size wise when your in the cockpit.
