Thoughts after moving to a 5K display
Got a new 27" iMac recently. The 5K screen is a joy to behold. At about 218ppi, it is literally print quality. I imagine 4K displays are similar.
However I've noticed that several of the so-called "issues" that I used to worry about when unrealistically viewing at 100% on an HD screen (1920 x 1080 on a 21.5" iMac = about 100ppi) simply are no longer visible. Subtle differences in sharpness, noise, halos... just gone. I think this is a great sanity check for pixel peepers. In many cases we've been wringing our hands over nothing this whole time.
Just for fun here's my current wallpaper.
