    21" for the primary and 19" for the secondary. Once you watch a DVD with 5.1 speaker system on a 21 inch monitor from 2 feet away......the 27" TV with Dolby Surround only seems pretty weak!!!

    I have 2 systems. For my main system I use a 19" monitor. For my game system I have a 21" monitor.

  8. I have two 17" monitors on my main system, one 15" on my brother's system, and a 17" on my parent's system.

    And I think you meant to put " instead of ' in the poll options... I don't know many people with 21-foot displays. But now i'm being nitpicky.

    21" Hitachi SuperScan Elite 802 I've had for about 6 years and 4 or 5 computers (depending on how much upgrading you consider a whole new computer). Won't be replacing it until 20" TFT screens are better and a lot cheaper. Or, maybe by then someone will have a 27"-32" 16x9 plasma screen that can be used equally well as a TV and computer monitor for a reasonable price.

  11. Just a 19 inch Mag monitor, of course it's flat screen tube but I have no idea the model number, the 21 inch models wouldn't actually fit on my desk with room for the keyboard in front.... the 19 barely does but anything smaller and I'd cry, the second PC has two 17 inch monitors using a GF4ti4200 to run them, it's mainly for web browsing and grunt tasks, burning CD's etc... but I love the multimonitor display.... I really should get a bigger desk

    I did not know they measured monitiors in feet '. Most are measured in inches ". I know it's a typo or is that a tgpo?

    Well, I have a KDS 19" XF-9e shared by both systems I have. They also share mouse and Keyboard. And this monitior cost less then my first 14" svga non-interlaced generic monitior. My how times have changed and prices gone down!
    May the force be with you.

    My monitor is 17 inches.
    Quote Quote  
  18. 19 inches here...
    I have found out that a flat monitor of 17 inches is almost as big as an ordinary monitor of 19 inches...
    this confuses me :fist:
    I wanna be bigger, stronger, drive a faster car...

    But with a flat screen monitor you typically don't have to worry about viewable size back the size of the monitor is the size that you can view.

  25. Depends on what PC...

    One has a 17" CRT monitor
    My notebook has a 13" (or is it 14"?) TFT LCD screen
    And the beautiful workstation at work (for viewing x-rays) has dual 21" Samsung TFT LCD monitors with each in "portait" position.

    Regards.

    That sounds kinda like what I'm waiting for but $7000 is just a weeeeeeee bit (read way) out of my price range.

    The 42" PlasmaSync looks nice too if only that came in a 32" and a helluva lot cheaper. I dont see a 32" 16:9 LCD though?

    Raaa. Why didn't this post first time? Anyway.

    Moved up last summer from an early 90's 14 incher (good quality though, IBM 6312, better than the average bundled 15") to a 2nd user office clearance 15". Feels quite big in comparison... but so many 17"ers on the poll, makes a guy feel quite inadequate.

    Ah well it's what you do with it rather than the actual measurements. Get plentynuff enjoyment out of it and most 17" I see are set to the same 1024x768 at 75hz I use, which for 40 pounds sterling compared to 120+ is pretty wonderful quality to my mind; no warranty but monitor replacements have proved to be a bitch in the past, might end up spending as much on shipping as to buy another clearance box.
    The old 14" was only 25 as well, got 84hz at 800x600. Bargain. 10 years young and still works with a clear picture

    Also got a couple of laptops.. currently broken down; bangernomics doesnt work too well with them. First one cost me a webcam so effectively 20 pounds - all of 33mhz and a beautiful, 7-shades-of-grey 9.5 inch screen. But, it ran MS Word 6 fine enough.. The other, which I really want to fix ("just add solder"), 65, an old classic folding-keyboard IBM thinkpad (75mhz ). It's got a modest 10.4" TFT, but on such a beautifully tiny body (smaller than the mono), it looks huge. Even it's standard VGA resolution seems detailed.

    For comparison, I also have a 14" TV and a four-and-a-half seater car with a 1043cc (64ci) engine... but 230gb of disc, mounds of VCDs and DVDs to fuel the TV and it's dinky surround system, and alternately load Die Maus up with about a half ton of stuff or drive around at 80-90mph all over the place, overtaking spoiler-clad sheeples driving round with half their brain on (once, exercising extreme restraint, I got 55mpg out of it... the usual average stands at about 30-35 as the throttles are always propped open). Again, it's what you do that counts...

    Incidentally ladies, my 'personal measurements' are.... ehehehe...

    Sterno, word, but you know the 10-inch mono-green version of the VT320 is the real master. (yeah, my college still has a couple banks of the old soldiers running too)
    -= She sez there's ants in the carpet, dirty little monsters! =-
    Back after a long time away, mainly because I now need to start making up vidcapped DVDRs for work and I haven't a clue where to start any more!
