liang
I'm using a 17" monitor. Not a new one but a good one.

I use dual monitors because I am a programmer. So I have (2) 21' Dell LCD Flat Screen monitors. I'd suggest it to everyone. Makes daily computing very ez.

I have an old 17" Dell CRT. Not as nice as my dad's 19" one, but I like it better because it's flat screen.

CRT btw... those LCD/TFT are too expensive for me...
izimngcubes15
Only like 17', and it's CRT, flat screen of course! But I'd like a flat screen panel someday... Smile

I own a 17" TFT. Its one of those tilting ones. Never use the til but its there if I need it.
I was thinking of a 19" but the only problem I have with them is screen resolutions. 1024x768 makes everything look to big which I don't like but he coreect screen resolution is bad for lots of sites which use set width layouts (mine unfortunatly).

I bought mine this past summer, It was the best of the best at the time. It is a 21" flat screen with a 4ms responce time. Most CRT monitors cannot even match that speed. I use it for everything though, including videogames, watching movies, and chatting online. I always love it when my friend come over and try to hide how jealous they are that i have a $500 monitor.
Josso
19" TFT - best for gaming if you ask me but now I'm used to this it's annoying having anything smaller... my friend has a 15" and I can't stand it for long.

im on a 15.4" widescreen laptop.
ocalhoun
A 19" and a 15".
I that's a fine way to increase screen size!

I love my Dell Flat-Panel 17" monitor, it's so wonderful. It's actually an inch bigger than a 17" CRT monitor on viewing size. Very Happy

My laptop (Dell Inspiron 6000) has a 15.5" widescreen, very cool.

I have a ton of 17" and 15" CRT monitors lying around here, too many to use at once lol. I killed like 3 old CRT's a few years ago and I keep pulling more and more out of the garbage.

Don't buy new monitors, just go to the local thrift store and get a used one really cheap. If it goes, then go back and buy another. It's so much better than buying new.

Around here in Chicago, there are tons of thrift stores that sell 17" CRT monitors for like $8.00 apiece, an unbelievable price.

2x 17" Viewsonic CRTs, one flatpanel, one standard on dual-monitor setup.

1x 15" monitor on KVM for 2 other systems

not sure the size of the LCDs on my 2 laptops...
fireydeviant
I use three monitors, 17" each, 1 LCD and two CRTs. I use it for 3d applications, photoshop, research, and coding web sites. one of the monitors is connected to a kvm switch, which will switch to my other computer. It is great for multi-tasking. Though for some games i have to disable two of them. I don't mind for UT2k4 and Elder Scrolls 3 though. I often run WoW along with a web browser and chat/itunes on another monitor.

Agreed, KVM switches are one of the best things you can get for multiple PC's working on one central monitor, keyboard, and mouse. I've sorta lost count on how many I have, but they are great. Smile

Well, I have a 17" LCD Flat panel. It has some nice looks and saves quite a bit of desk space. But, it's not very good when it comes to gaming. The response time is not so good.

Got two monitors - my old 15" inch(sigh) CRT and my new 17" Samsung Syncmaster 713N LCD. The new samsung one is a lot more easy on the eyes. But if you are really choosy about picture quality CRT is the one you should look for. Let them talk anything about contrast ratios on LCDs but it never comes half as good as good old CRTs..:thumbsup:

I just got a 17" Daewoo LCD. The brightness and contrast are both on 30%, and I need to turn them down because it is too bright Shocked

Right now im using Samsung CRT 17". Really bad model. I desperately want 30" Apple Cinema Display. I am also looking forward to buy a viewsonic widescreen model.
Also Viewsonic has more warranty period that Apple Cinema display.

I have 17" HP M700 monitor. It's very good, i really like it. Some friends sad to me that you need to buy 19" monitor, but i sad NO. You know why? Well, i'm a web-developer, so i need 17" because it's standart monitor in the world. And when you are a deleloping homepage, or something else, so you need to develop it for 17" monitor Smile

Oh, don't get your hopes so high yet about that monitor. I once had one of the same monitor (over a year ago this was) and the thing died because it started to shoot sparks out of the top of it. Very scary.

My monitor is an Acer V771 17-inch monitor that I bought second-hand.

I'm currently using it at 1024x768, 85Hz refresh rate. I would run it at 1280x1024, but the refresh rate at that resolution is too small (60Hz). I personally think that 60Hz looks absolutely horrible (I don't use a computer unless the refresh rate is at least 75Hz Razz)

ViewSonic 17inches build since 1999. lol very old. however it provide all the visual graphic i need. can't complain really.

ryanh2006
Since my computer is an Apple eMac, I am stuck with a 16 inch screen. Well 17, in marketing terms but 16 viewable! [yeah go figure!]. Hopefully I will get a spanking new iMac soon to replace my sturdy yet aging computer. However, 1280X960 resolution seems enough for the time being. Smile

19" iiyama CRT

I'd only switch to LCD if there weren't any CRT's left. CRT's still own LCD's handsdown considering quality :f
Especially when it comes to things like CAD and gaming. The best LCD still don't even come close to upper CRT's.
Only pro for LCD's are the space on your desktop of course. Mr. Green

Hmm off-topic actually Rolling Eyes
Just felt like mentioning it and no offence to LCD users of course Smile
looksbad
42 inch.. Tv Screen.. LG one with Computer input and since it was put in the chill room where the computer i just built is i decided to plug it in there.. its kinda to big to design but playing games on it is awsome as i can just sit on the sofa and play..

But in my bedroom ive got a 24inch Dell which is more than sufficient

I have a 21" CRT monitor which i scored for a bargain price. With the amount of people swapping their CRTs for LCDs these days you can score some very cheap buys!
It is also very large physically but i have room to spare. I'm considering getting a second one Very Happy

im working on a 17 inch CRT monitor... its really ticking me off ._.* . I hope to get a new monitor with my new computer, cause everytime I go to a lan party where I cant barrow someones I have to lug this one to it and it weighs about 40-50 pounds. the last party I went to I brought it along and then we ended up not even using our computers... someone popped out a surprise bottle of vodka and then a little bit after that the night is a blur to me -.-..

I am using a 17'inch CRT monitor, and that is enough for me, I think. This is mainly because I am not using my computer to play games, which in this case, is the bigger the better.

I had a 14-inch 'MTC' monitor manufactured in 1989, which only supported 640x480 at 60Hz, or 800x600 at 56Hz (it didn't work all the time, though). It just died recently, after 17 years of working Sad
