Depends on the viewing distance. I don't like to have my nose pressed against a 23" monitor, so I use a 32" screen from roughly a metre.

A meter from 32"? @#$% dude. I sit two meters away from my 24". That's the closest I've ever sat and that's because my eyes are getting crappier.

It sounds close, but it's more than an extended arm's reach away and proximity scales things down over distance. It's about 100-120cm, depending on the chair lean.

I wear glasses too, which doesn't help, otherwise 24" would suffice. My work Mac screen is 27" and it's still big at that distance.

Two metres from a 24" screen? Wow, those are either some thick glasses to magnify the screen size or you have the vision of a bird of prey!

You're right, but as antithesis said, it depends upon the viewing distance, for me i'm so close to my monitor so i think 24inch is a perfect if you're close to your monitor, also most of the streamers are using 24inch monitors.

24 Inch is a good / safe size

I was planning to buy 24 inch but someone told me that one inch isn't a big deal

I actually went back to a 24" recently. For me it's the sweet spot for FPS games. Bigger and I tend to look around the screen. I do like to sit close though as I feel more connected. Not csgo pro close but around 50cm-60cm
