    Only with ips panels. Even then it’d have to be quite extreme.

    VA ones you lose out from the side.

    Only problem I can think of is neck strain. I have a 40” wall mounted in bedroom and it’s not an issue but it’s difficult to say definitively if it’ll be an issue for you.

    Centre of screen should be roughly eye level when seated, to avoid neck/eye strain.
