Why such large monitors

Am I the only one that just hates big monitors for coding and web browsing?
I am talking everything over 21", which is hardly available any more.
It's funny how gaming just kept pushing the monitor size ad absurdum.

I have the Dell UP2414q (24" 4k) which is a beautiful screen but still feels like I am in front of an x-ray machine. Being a web developer who does long hours coding, I find that small HD laptop screens are much easier on my eyes (and brain) for coding. The problem with using a laptop as the main PC is the ergonomics.

I am considering trying portrait mode but that just creates another problem.
I might just start working on a Surface pro 3.

This would be better placed in the opinions section.
But no, you're not the only one.

Both variations have their perks. I enjoy both for different things :)
I like my <22" for FPS and web browsing.. but when I play MMOs/RPGs, simulation, RTS, or exploration games I love my 55" TV :)
