What is your monitor size? What size do you wish to get?

Recommended Posts

For my laptop, it is 15.6".

 

For my desktop PC, it is a 40" Samsung LCD TV. I use 1920x1080 desktop resolution.

Before the TV, it was a 22" LCD monitor. Before that, it was a 24" Trinitron. Earlier, it was a 19" Trinitron.

 

 

Now I feel the 40" isn't big enough. :) Bigger is better in this case. I feel I can use a 52" at least.

The laptop I use on occasion is 17" I think. It's plenty big enough for what I use it for.

My desktop is a 22". I'm fine with it but a 24" would be nice.

 

I wouldn't mind using a LCD TV but I have a feeling I wouldn't like it after a while.

 

I'm currently building a PC though and I think I'll be upgrading to a 24"... No need for a 40".

Currently 2 x 22" monitors..... Ideally would like 2 that just fit on the wall in my livingroom from floor to ceiling and are touchscreen. Have a feeling however that my budget and marriage wont stretch LOL

I have 2 x 22" monitors currently, although I'm thinking I need a third now.

 

See I havent got that far. Im thinking of where I can put a third. After that I will be at your stage LOL

I just went from having a 42 inch LCD TV screen as my monitor....down to a tiny one from years ago. As in, I think it's probably 15" and is smaller than my laptop's screen! And to make matters worse, it's not even widescreen which is what I've been used to for years now, so it's a huge adjustment for me. I can't wait to get something larger again. ANYTHING larger would be better at this point, heh.

Once you go bigger, you won't want to get anything less.

 

At first the 40" was hurting my eyes, and I had to keep moving the desk back to stay further away from it. At around 6 feet distance, it's perfect. I just love it when playing first person shooter games on it. Combined with surrounding sound system, I am in heaven. :) I can never go back to any thing smaller for gaming at least. It is an one way trip, it can only get bigger.

What I have now is a 20-incher and that's all I need. Anything bigger will not just mean more money but less efficiency, too, because I will either have to sit further back from the screen or turn my head to read everything.

My computer monitor is actually pretty small. Especially compared to the ones you all listed. I only have a 19 inch flat panel. Honestly, even though I can get a bigger one, I figure why go for a new one if the one I have is in working order. When this one finally breaks down, THEN I'll upgrade.

21.5" here and this is the big as I can go on my desktop space :P

 

Pfft! If you ever get to upgrade your monitor size, then I'm sure you can manage to upgrade your desktop space as well, hehe. All it takes is some rearranging!

See this is my problem. But the issue you will find is similar to mine. I started the same only being able to fit a similar size screen to your own. And therefore I upgraded my desk and have 2 x 22" now and finding I havent quite got the room for my third. Its a never ending game.

 

 

Some call it an addition, but I prefer to call it "productivity space" :P

My laptop's a 12.1" with 1366x768 resolution; my old machine was 15" with the same resolution, but oddly enough i find the smaller one much more comfortable. My desktop's hooked to a 19.1" LCD monitor, and since I like having everything in my face and in reach, I'll probably never go beyond 22 or maybe 24 inches. At some point I need to something with at least 1080p resolution for the desktop, anyways.

My laptop monitor is 13 inches. I had no problems with that size until I used a desktop with a larger monitor. It think it was 25 inches. Now, I can't wait to get a new computer with big monitor.

Well I really can't see why you would need a bigger monitor. :/

What is your monitor size? What size do you want to get?

 

52 inches is not a big screen. It's a very big screen. Just curious. What do you want to do with such a big screen? Watch movies or play games?

:P Yep. The bigger the better. But you can't go too much overboard if you don't have the specs to support higher resolution.
