Sounds similar to mine (ASUS 24" 1080p LCD (ASUS VW246H)) which I had since I think Feb 2010 (early 2010 anyways). but I am happy with mine as I plan on using it for years to come as I don’t see there being enough of a upgrade to justify the $100+ to buy a newer one ; but if it dies, then naturally it’s probably not worth fixing unless it’s a dirt cheap fix and at this point ill just move onto something newer but even then I suspect ill probably stay as close to $100 as possible, maybe $150-200 tops. I think I paid around $220 for my current 24" 1080p LCD in early 2010, but nowadays one can get a decent monitor for probably in the $100 range, or not much over that.
even when I eventually build another computer, while ill see how things are at that time, but as of now there is a good chance I would just use the current monitor to save $100+.
Too large as in won’t fit in a area you need it to fit?
because while I don’t mind my 1080p 24" monitor, if mine ever dies, depending on cost, I would probably not mind something a bit bigger as I doubt I would complain going from 24" to 27", maybe even a bit larger.
but at the same time… come to think of it, I guess after a certain point I would agree with you because if your sitting pretty much in front of the screen, like I would imagine is typical on a desktop computer, we generally ain’t going to want nothing too big like we generally would with a typical TV where nowadays people probably want a bare minimum of 40 something inches where as that size for a desktop monitor would be WAY too large and not really practical. so I guess in this regard I would guesstimate probably no larger than high 20’s, maybe low 30’s tops.
but from my best guess… I would guess somewhere around that 27" would probably be my sweet spot as while my 24" does not bother me at all, I would not mind a little larger if given the choice to buy another one and the price is good (say around $100 as I figure one is probably going to have to spend around that figure at the minimum to get a decent monitor).
but with all of that said… enjoy your new monitor, whichever you end up going with
