i have a monitor optimal for 1600 and yet when i run it at 1280 x 1024 the text is too small and a buit blurry. i ahve asony g420, shoudl the text be not that sharp at that res, or is there somehitng worng with the monitor? 1024x768 ir perfect though.
Yep, same here.
After playing around with resolution settings (and refresh rates) I found out that only way to endure 10-12 hour/day of work constantly looking at the monitor is at:
1024 X 768 @85hz
1152 X 864 is probably OK as well, except my monitor can only do 70hz at that setting which gives me a headache after 2-3hours of continuous use.
The refresh HAS to be 85hz(or higher) for continuous computer work. (I still have 20/20 without correction and intend to keep it as such).
As of now I officially give up getting caught into an ego game of trying to "floor it" to 1600 X 1200 or even 1280 X 1024. No Thanks, reality has to come first.
well, i did spend a bunch of money for this 19" sony g420 so i guess i'll give 1280x1024 a shot for a while. the only way i can easily read text at this res is by scaling and it seems to be working pretty well, although the icons in my startup tray look a bit wierd. but oh well, i'll try it for the weeknd.
