How big is your Computer Monitor's Screen? - What's its Resolution, etc.?

The inspiration for this thread was provided by following fact.

Do you have a CRT or (flat panel) LCD computer monitor?
What's the size (17-inch, ...) and the aspect ratio (standard 4:3, widescreen 16:10 or 16:9)
of the screen?
What's the resolution (1280x1024 pixels, ....)?
What's the brand of your computer monitor: Sony, Dell, Apple, ...?

(Optionally, what are the refresh rate, response time, contrast ratio,
analogue or digital connections, etc?)


How many monitors do you or your family have?
Do you have two monitors (say, one widescreen and one standard 4:3)
connected to your desktop computer?
Do you also have a laptop with a widescreen display?
What are the size and resolution?

Do you have a dedicated computer monitor for gaming?

Optionally, please post pics of your computer monitor.

I've got an LCD computer monitor with 19" screen, regular 4:3 aspect ratio,
1280x1024 resolution, response time 5 ms, and refresh rate 60kHz,
manufacured by Dell.



In the beginning



and now








and please post your pics now.

If people stop replying to his threads it's possible that he'll go away. Lord only knows what he does with all the inane information he harvests from his threads and polls.

We just sold off our 19" 1280x1024 LCD monitor. Right now I only have my X61 which has a 12" screen with a decade old 1024x768 resolution. Works fine by me, but I am planning to get a full HD 26" monitor soon.

You continue to be unable to actually recognise people by name poster number one.

I'm running dual monitors. My main screen is a Viewsonic G225f CRT, running at 1600x1200. This is my photo editing screen, and is hardware calibrated. My secondary screen is a Samsung SyncMaster 215 TW LCD, running at 1650x1080. This is the screen I use for my toolbars, etc. in Photoshop, and for web surfing and non-critical use. Both are 32-bit color.

24" at 1920x1200
BenQ FP241WZ monitor.

^Use as my console monitor too; has many inputs (hdmi, dvi-d, component, composite, s-video); and does HDCP.
Uses AUO-MVA panel that gives very accurate color range. Good enough to replace a CRT for its accuracy (for designers).

The inspiration for ...

.... this thread was provided by the following fact.

If someone posts a very large picture, say, 900x700, I cannot see the whole picture
on my 19" (4:3) monitor. I need to scroll to the left and/or to the right to see it all.
Therefore usually I suggest the following:
"Please do not post very wide pictures."

I think that the Head-fi.org went wild, ... oooops .... wide and
therefore it is very inconvenient to look at picters without a widescreen.

This thread might reveal the following trend: (almost) everyone has a widescreen display.

I propose the following

Test
Let someone post some text, say, 'test', to the farthest right.
Can you see such a text without scrolling?
In such a situation I need to scroll 'for miles' to see that text.
Does someone need to have 24" widescreen display to avoid any scrolling in this case?



P.S.
I have already noticed two jealous lunatics on this thread (posts #2 & #9 and #5).
Except for those two dummies everyone else enjoys this thread.
Am I missing something here?

I really don't see what Beerguy and Krmathis did so wrong.
