Any advantage of a 27" monitor over a 23" if both have same 1920x1080 resolution?

1) will any more information be able to be placed on the 27" monitor? (If so, how is that possible if the resolution is the same?
2) Does 1920x1080 resolution mean that there are the same number of pixels in each direction? If so, is the density of pixels in the larger monitor less than the smaller one?

The 'resolution' describes the number of pixels, not the physical size.   If they are both 1920x1080 they are the same resolution.  The larger monitor has the pixels spread out a little more.  The larger monitor will be a little more visible at a distance.

You won't see any more info on the large display. The difference is that the pixels are larger. So it is easier to see the individual pixel when compared to the smaller display. That means that when you look at the picture of both displays from the same distance, the smaller display will appear to have a clearer, sharper picture.

As has been mentioned above, the larger display has advantages when you are further away from it, as the picture is bigger. It is better when used as a TV, as TV's are usually placed further away from the audience. If it is further away you also won't easily see the individual pixel.

Thank you. I thought this might be the case. I will wait for a sale on higher resolution monitors.
