Still rocking the 2004 Sony 17" non-widescreen monitor I picked up with my old computer. Would love a larger screen, but oh well, lol. :P

Acer X203H 20" 1600x900 (yech!)

I will never go any lower than 20" at this point, the 1600x900 isn't that much better than 1024x768 but the overall size is a fricken HELL of a lot better than a 14" laptop screen...
:lol:


My next screen will be 22"+ definitely, as I said 1600x900 is nice but I'd like something over 1000 pixels in the height department...

If you see the cops - LEAVE.

If the cops are coming - Don't be there.
If you show up and the cops are already there - DISAPPEAR.
Anyplace the cops are and you aren't, is a good day

:yes:

I've got a 19" widescreen as the primary monitor and a 37" TV as the secondary, though I use the TV so often with Media Center that it should technically be my primary :lol:

I have an HP w1907 19" 1440x900 widescreen LCD - only monitor I have, share it between both PCs.
And, yes, I agree about the vertical resolution < 1000 is not the best.
But then I think back to the "good ole days" when monitors were measured by characters instead of pixels. 80x25. Hmmm. 1440x900 ain't so bad! :P

42" 1080p here.

As your primary PC monitor? I tried that for a few months, but didn't like it for regular activities like web browsing, word processing, etc.

Anywho, 22" widescreen for me....and then my 15" widescreen notebook (which I couldn't vote for because you suspiciously started at 17" :P)

Yup. My work computer has dual 19" widescreen LCDs. I generally just browse forums and play games on my desktop at home with the 42".

Tolerance is a sign of weakness.
