    I was sceptical too 'cause i only run 1280x1024 on my 19" but it actually looks fine on the laptop and the screen is bright and readable at much higher angles off center...I like it :big grin:

    I guess if you set font size to large it would be ok, but I'm into graphics so that wouldn't work for me.

    wouldn't it be better for graphics work :confused:

    I mainly got it for drafting use while in the field and it looks like i'tll do a decent job of that

    get a 19 inch monitor, set to 1600x1200 and sit 5-6 feet back... that should be about right in terms of actual size of text and such...

    Who the fuck would want to use that resolution anyway? Every single website would be unviewable except for a few.

    It's absolutely wonderful on a 24" screen... I can see 2 8.5x11 pages of text at 100% (actual 100% where putting your printout on the screen matches up sizewise... side by side...

    So i can fit IM stuff, and 2 internet explorer browsers side by side, plus have tons of toolbars out in photoshop and autocad, I can tweak my FOV on some FPS games and run a 4:3 res with tweaked fov and have it look normal stretched to 16:10 except i see more around me...

    It's really great, and i've sold a few of the samsung 24" LCD's which are even nicer than my sony CRT...

    However, losing about 10 inches of diagonal space would seriously suck... 24" monitor is only as high as a 19" monitor is anyways... it would be way too short, and too small to read for most things.

    Yes that's why I was referring to on a 15.4in laptop screen.
