Folks with an Xbox Series S, how does it look on a 1440p monitor?

It's perfect for XSS since it natively supports this resolution. The difference between 1080p and 1440p is striking especially if you play on 27 inch monitor.  Games look much better on it.

Are you saying that 1080p looks good on a 1440p monitor or vice versa?

No i mean if you play on a 27 inch monitor then difference between playing on a 27 inch monitor with 1080p native resolution compared to playing on a 27 inch monitor with 1440p native resolution is striking and very noticeable. If a monitor is 24 inch or less than the difference is hardly noticeable. 

 

P.S. I know what i am stating is very obvious. Should have clarified it better in original post.

I know that part. That's why I was confused about what you were saying. The upscaling on the XSS does not mitigate the issue?

XSS outputs most games at 1440p so no need for upscaling .

Upscalers on new gen consoles are good. It works well enough on 4k too. But it depends on you as well. What you consider acceptable.

 

If you care too much about this then get X obviously.

I sold my Series X a while back since I wasnt using it. Was wondering if the XSS would make sense down the line if I hook it to my monitor. I seriously love the small form factor

What size monitor you have? Also how far do you sit?

27 inch is fine. It will look good.

 

I use it on everything from 32" 720p TV to 50" 4k TV and in between. 

 

It looks best on 22" - 32" screens. I don't think you will have any issues regarding sharpness or upscaling artifact's. Go for it if you want.

It's perfect for XSS . Will work really well. Also i think your monitor supports downscaling - It will accept 4k/60fps signal from PS5 and then convert it to 1440p/60fps . This should give you a "Rough" idea as to how games might look on XSS at 1440p

I wish they would overhaul the xbox gui. It harks back to the awful Windows 8 tile layout and looks clunky and confusing compared to the simple and clean gui of the PS5.

 

I know green is supposed to be xbox colour but dial it back a bit on the gui eh?
