I've been using a 38" westy for 5 years now (gaming, movies, web browsing, etc.), and I don't think I can go back to the tiny 28" ones anymore. To each their own, but I think the pixel pitch is perfect for 1080p on a 38-40" for desktop use.
I'll need a 80" for 4K lol...
Then again I've noticed I'm one of the people that likes to sit rather close to the screen in movie theaters as well. Some people like to be able to watch the screen without moving their eyes. I like moving my eyes and using my peripheral vision more.
Decent price for this, I'm just waiting for other cheap 4Ks or an actual cable standard that can do 60Hz (or more!) without overclocking and firmware hax (even though I've read they mostly work, better luck with the 50" Seiki model).

My triple 39" Westy setup the one on the right is connected to my work laptop, the one on the left is connected to my PC and I can toggle the middle one between either...I can relate about not going back to a smaller size monitor....
I'm actually tempted to buy another one at this price.. got mine for $400 back in January, and whenever I go on a trip and am stuck with my lowly 1080p screen I think about making a carrying case for my Seiki that would survive airline baggage handlers!
