    Screen Res'

    Just conducting a personal survey of sorts.

    Which resolution do most of you guys use? At the moment I'm using 1280x960 (72Hz Refresh) but lately I'm finding my eyes are getting sore(er than usual) and I'm even noticing flickering (whether or not this is a sign of my monitor packing it in I don't know).

    Oh and sorry but I've only included 4:3 resolutions in the Poll. I don't know why.

    I find the next 4:3 below 1280x960, 1152x864 to my knowledge, makes everything too big and it annoys me more.

    My home PC runs at 1280X1024, which is as high as my monitor goes (19" LCD).

    At work I get a combined 3200X2224 from my 19" LCD and my 15.5" widescreen laptop.

    1024 x 768 on a 14.1-inch TFT laptop screen.

    Also 1024 x 768 when I connect in a 17-inch CRT. (my graphics card can't satisfactorily handle more than that. So I'm stuck)

    Do you get sore eyes or anything? I guess your refresh rate is higher than 60Hz though (my monitor won't do any higher at that resolution)

    No, I find it very comfortable to look at. I'll see what the settings are when I get home.

    1280x1024 - it suits perfectly to my 19" LCD.

    Native 1024x768 on the 15" Laptop (home) and (at last - long waiting ) native 1280x1024 on the 19" LCD (work)
    Never used less than 85Hz on CRT (since this freq was available)
    The first 90% of a project takes 90% of the time,
    the last 10% takes the other 90% of the time.

    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
