I am not with Laminar Research; just a flight simmer.
From all of my research in determining what screens to purchase with X-plane use a 1920 x 1080 screen (ie 16:9) format. X-Plane works best and configured for this format.
Why purchase a large size monitor when a television of the same size and 1920 x 1080 format and brand will do the same job and would be considerably cheaper. From reading other forum questions don't waste your money on a 4K screen as the font size is small on the screen.
Have a look at some of the videos at the following link https://www.youtube.com/user/col2mab/videos from Michael Brown at XforcePC. This company is recommended by Laminar Research as the PC supplier in the USA for X-Plane users.
Michael basically recommends using TVs instead of monitors. In some of his latest youtube videos he uses 3- 60 inch screens. In one of his videos he recommends a 4K screen has the only benefit of watching a television show/program.
Hope this helps
