I'm the only mad guy here that have a 1152X864 resolution? I have a 17" monitor as other people and i do all things that other people do. Anyway I find this resolution very nice.

I've got 1024*786 on a good old 17" CRT monitor, I've never actually tried 800*600 on this monitor because a friend of mine had it like that on 15" CRT and the hugh text everywhere was really annoying, so when I got this computer the first thing I did was check the resolution, (it was 1024*768 by the way) and I've never changed it.

I'm running 1024*786 on both computers I have. One is LCD 15" and the second one is CRT also 15". Two years ago I had 800*600 but it's kinda to big (the desktop) and the status bar is just to big and looks bad. I can assure you that with 1024*786 your computer desktop looks much much better, and if not for other you can have twice times more icons on it and better quallity images for background. :P

i have a 17 inch monitor and its not LCD. too poor. lol. I have 1024x768. 800x600 is sorta big for me. And anything larger than my resolution has small fonts and thats just annoying. I think usually people with glasses use the greater resolutions. Its more space but its too small for me.

800x600 pixels on a 17" LCD monitor.

 

I can't stand the tiny text on 1024x768 pixel screen resolution. Maybe all this programming has affected my vision >_<.

now i remember when i bought my first personal computer, it was 7 years ago, then lcd and crt monitors were so much expensive, and there were not choi9ces to make, for that time i bought a 14'' crt monitor and yes it had low frecuency and resolution and i always dream to buy a bigger monitor because i can't stay a long time in the computer, and the work space was too litle, but they were to expensive.

 

a few time ago i buy one new personal computer, and i got surprised when i saw the prices, now you can obtain a flat lcd monitor without expending a lot of money, even if the monitor is big, like 17'' or 19'', and now i'm happy, i have a high resolution panel and working at a high frequence, and i have it configured at 1024*768, i think it is the apropiated resolution for web design without forcing your sight! :P

I have a 15'' TFT monitor on a 1024x768 resolution. I have been thinking about upgrading to a LCD monitor sometime soon. I don't like using the 800x600 resolution. It is just too big for me too use. I like to have a lot of space on my desktop and when I have a lot of applications open.

1024x768 on 17'' CRT Monitor.


[i]_R_Crazy_Idiot

I cant imagine doing anything on 1024x768 after discovering 1024x1028.


steven

Well, my screen resolution is 1024 X 768 on a 17" LCD Monitor. I find it pretty easy to use, instead of 1024 X 1028, I think that's hard. ;)


ViSSeR

I use 800x600 on all of my computers. It isn't as big as 640x480, but it is big enough so that i can read it.


crs_cwiz

I have a very high quality 17" LCD, so i'm very comfortable with 1280*1024


Anndi

Well I used 800x600 for a very long time, and then I finally decided to move up to 1024x768. Then a few days ago I decided I was running out of space on my desktop and moved up again to 1280x1024. I love it, and when I switch down to 800x600 to test my website, it's so ugly to me.


engalex

800x600 is good


Thunder

I run 1792 by 1344 pixels on a 19 inch dell monitor. Flat screen thats all. I like the space on my desktop and the way games fit when windowed. Its pretty cool that way. My graphics card is ATI Radeon 9800 Pro By the way. I probably run one of the smallest texted resolution here on this topic lol


Inspiron

I'm running on 17-inch widescreen monitor by Dell, Inspiron 8500.1280 x 800 will be perfect for this...


Amezis

I don't know how many inches my screen is, I think it's either 17 or 19 (of course ;) )I use 1280x1024. (max resolution, but works fine).On my other computer I have also 1280x1024, and sometimes I am testing pages on 1024x768 on my old computer which is my brothers computer now.
