QOTD: How Big Is Your PC Display?

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 342 comments

I remember when my 12-inch yellow monochrome CRT monitor was the pinnacle of desktop display technology. Alas, those memorable days are gone.

These days, most people use LCDs for their computer, and some still are using a venerable CRT monitor. The debates still rage on in regards to which technology provides a better image quality. However, when it comes down to enjoying games or movies, size is what counts.

The question of the day is: How big is your computer display?

Maybe you own a 30-inch monster. Maybe you own more than one of them! Let us know.

    22" LCD. . . Within the next year, I'd like to get a 24 or 25.5 inch LCD. Either that or wait until my TV dies and then my wife my let me get a new big screen LCD TV. Come to think of it either way, the wife needs to ok it.

    24" + 21" + 19" at the same time.

    Photoshop on the more color accurate 21" CRT
    Photoshop tools go on the 19"
    24" LCD is for browsing and misc.

    24" LG P-MVA which opened my eyes to picture-in-picture work and play. I'm switching out to a 32" 1080P LCD TV with PIP and 3 HDMI inputs for $550 in my bedroom. I talked a roommate into doing it and now I'm jealous...

    2x24" consumer Dells. Got them for $150 each after a web-site pricing screw-up. They don't hold a candle to the pro 24" Dell I use at work, but for $150 they're definitely worth it.

    22" LCD - prices increase rather steeply when you go bigger than that, or at least they did when I bought the monitor.

    17" LCD, can't get a better one. if I get a 19" it's still the same 1280x1024 resolution, but lower DPI, making it effectively lower image quality. The next step is a 1600x1200 LCD and they cost WAY too much.

    Widescreen is for watching movies, not for working or gaming.
