Wide Screen Monitors
« on: July 09, 2009, 02:23:41 PM »
Been switching monitors back and forth this morning and really im failing to see the advantage of a wide screen. Having both varieties and both of them Samsung 19" i measured the total square inches and got 177 sq in for the standard monitor (14.75wx12h) and 160 sq in for the wide screen (16wx10h). Even if there was more of the panorama in MWLL wouldnt you still be at a disadvantage in regards to aerotech? I mean in height that is 20% of the screen. Also ...is there more panorama to view? Thanks for any insights.

if you wanted something similar to your 19" but wider, you'd want a 22" widescreen.   your 19" widescreen is going to be similar in height to a 17" 4:3 display

Yeah, a 19" wide screen will be a down grade in over all desktop real estate over a standard 19".  You want a 22" wide screen if you're looking to upgrade from the standard 19".  With prices what they are anymore I'd say get a 24" wide screen so you can really see the difference.

+1 for the 24", 1920*1200 is freaking sweet
