    The 27” models I have seen on display seem to generate an awful amount of heat radiating from the screen. Is this common?

    Is the screen overly big for home office use in terms of heat, screen resolution/print readability or overall usability if one sits fairly close to the monitor?

    Not alot of heat

    My I5 Quad 27inch Imac actually runs cooler than my previous 24inch Imac

    Regarding if its too big for home use no not really i actually would like a slightly bigger screen!!! but thats just me. The resolution is very high about 2K and usability is perfect

    My i7 runs cooler than my mid-2007 24" iMac as well.

    Also, you should not be sitting anywhere near close enough to the display of these monsters that you could possibly feel heat coming off of them.
