What is your operating system display resolution?
You can also add a comment (additional to the vote) for further details.
I think it depend on the size of you display.
It doesn't depend on the size of your display. I have a 15" CRT that performs as well as a 20" LCD. The power of your graphics card and the power of your monitor determine the resolutions you may use. This is usually around 800x600 - 1152x864. I use the highest average resolution.
1024x768 for me
1112x864 and I think I should change it..It's still to big.
I use 1280x1024 @ 85 Hz... I don't use 1600x1200 since everything becomes too small, and my monitor doesn't support high refreshing rates at 1600x1200...
I actually went out and bought a Samgsung SyncMaster 997DF. It's a 21" CRT of unimaginable strength and fortitude. And it's a CRT.
I chose a CRT because it is the most stable monitor, does not have the blurring of a LCD and it can support up to 2xxx by 19xx resolution. The only downside of the CRT is that it's bulky, but my special desk nullifies that point.
Plus, my video card supports much higher than 1600x1200.
And I like the extra pixels... plenty of room to stretch out, know what I'm sayin'?
Yes, it really depends on the size of your display and what your graphics hardware can support. I always use the native/highest I can. On my iBook I use 1024x768 (LCD), Power Mac Cube 1280x1024 (LCD), PCs 1280x1024 (one has a CRT the other LCD), I think my eMac is 1280x960 (CRT), and iMac G3 I think might be 1024x768 (CRT). I'd have to check on the last two.
What I would love to get though is the 30" version of this. All of them look very sharp and bright and have tons of pixels!
Depends on which OS you're talking about.
For Windows I use 1280 x 1024;
for Linux I use 108 x 48 (which I can't vote for!)
I have 17" monitor and i use 1024x768 - that's the optimum for 17" (not too big, not too small)
I had 15" and i used 1024 too because lot of www's are made for 1024
I always make it for 800x600 - but i noticed that 80-90% of ppls use 1024+
i use 1024*768 because it is the best resolution to view websites.
I use 1024x768...that and 1280x1024 are pretty much the standards now these days. The latter is generally the highest resolution that 17"-19" LCDs can reach, and the former is still common on pretty much any sized screen. More and more websites now are starting to drop support for 800x600..which is interesting yet makes sense also (just look at the results of this poll).
I can't stand going above 1280x1024 anyways though because most websites look pretty bad at that resolution - I dislike having a tiny page smack dab in the middle of the screen, or having it stretched across its entirety. 1024x768 seems to work perfectly for most everything though =)
I wish I could vote twice on this, but, apparantly I cannot.
I generally use the 1024x768 screen resolution on my computers, but on my widescreen laptop, the screen resolution is 1280x800.
I use 1024x768 at 60Hz cause that is the maximum my sys will support
That's what the 'Other' option is for
It's true that most websites are made for 1024x864 nowadays, as most people use that resolution. However, more and more are switching to 1280x1024. I can't recommend it tho, as it has a 'wrong' ratio, which may lead to a wrong display of objects. People should use 1280x960 instead (of 1280x1024).
I use 1152x864 btw, websites look on it as good as on 1024x864. Yet, you have more space with it (good for TP and coding).
Thanks for voting everyone =)
1280x1024 I would go bigger if I could, more screen space!!
Crt 17, 1152x864, 100Hz
I am using Samsung SyncMaster 753s 17" Monitor. My screen resolution always vary.But it is generally 1024*768.
1280x1024 for me. Using an LG Monitor
I use 1152x864 on my very old CRT monitor. I'll probably run on 1680x1050 later this year when a get a 20" widescreen monitor. I can't wait to have the space for my Photoshop work.
But if I had voted for "Other" I wouldn't have 1280 x 1024 available
1280x820 (I think) for me....
In my computer,Top show size is 1024*768,Because my mointer card memory is very very low,So only show this type...
Definitely 1024 * 768. It is the best for me.
As far does I only use 1024x768 res and truecolor (32 bit) when I design new websites, as I think that it's the most used. 800x600 was only in the good old days, thank god that it belongs to the past..
it depends, i normally use 1024x768, but when i have my dual monitor i sometimes use diffrent resolutions for some reason lol i have a 17" tft monitor, i use another when i have dual monitor but i just use 1 most of the time at the minute
800x600 for me. Everything looks cool.
My laptop has a widescreen and i use 1280 x 1024 resolution.
1024x768 @ 85hz
on that note if you haven't changed the refresh rate on your CRT to above 60hz: for windows right click on the desktop --> properties --> settings --> advanced --> monitor -- > then choose the highest hz your monitor supports and apply it. Your eyes will thank you.
i have two monitors
1. LG 15 inch CRT
2. Samsung 17" Syncmaster LCD
the crt one i run at 1024x768 at 70Hz
and the LCD at 1280X1024 at 65 Hz
1400x1050 isnt on there but most LCD's are max at that.
Atleast most Laptop LCDs
I find that any of the 17" monitors that I've had are no good above 1024x768, as the refresh rate can't go above 60 at 1280x1024, and my eyes go buggy.
1024x768@75 on cheap KDS 17" CRT
1024x768 seems the best for me. If I am going to use 800x600, the stuffs on my desktop won't seem enough for it. They will be over-loaded.
I've got a few resolutions:::
On my PB 15" its:
On my Gentoo Server:
On my iBook:
Finally on my Gentoo Worstation:
1280x1024 mathically is'nt the right resolution...
If you calculate it right it's 1280x960!
But it only does matter if you're a Graphic Designer or a "PowerUser"...
1024 x 768, i think this is the most common resolution, 800 x 600 is too large for me. the rest is small.
800x600 is the current resolution. I will shift to 1024x728 while working with photoshop
Today I shifted to 1280 X 1024 from 1024 x 768 , since my desktop was full with important icons, since I was unable to declutter my desktop, I switched to 1280 X 1024
I use 1024x768 but I think that is the best for a normal monitor screen.
I use it because I have a big monitor downstairs, quite good.
Thanks all for the replies. =)
Seems like 1024x768 is still the by far most popular one.
1280x1024 @ 75Hz. On my 17" monitor, I'd say it's the best choice.
it depends on the performance of your monitor.
1024*768 is fine for me
1600*1200. This is "native" resolution for my NEC MutiSync LCD 2080UX+ monitor. Think there is can't be better.
1152 x 864 75Hz on 17" CRT
1280 x 1024 80Hz on 19" CRT
1152 x 864 100Hz on my ViewSonic PF790 19" monitor
1280x1024, everything is just too small for me
On my PowerBook G4 15", the highest it can reach of course
LG, Win XP Home, 1024X768 @ 85Hz. But I liked it better when I had my Samsung SyncMaster with 1024X768 @ 100Hz by the way.
I don't know why, but i love this resolution... lol
Some times I use 1280x1024 too...
800x600. Might seem like I'm living in 1998, but I'm not complaining.
My next monitor will be a 30" 2560x1920 LCD. Hopefully.
I use 1280 x 854 on my 15 inch PowerBook display. I think thats the highest it goes. Pretty good size I think.
Few days back i was with 800*600 with my 15" display
but off late i am switched to 1024*786
Actually I bought some time ago the IBM Laptop R-50p which one the only one who offered 1600x1200 (at the time I bought it) and it's great for Making music software, or 3d studio max!!
My resolution is 1024x768. Everything is so small if I use over than my current resolution. Some games changes resolution but I don't play often games like that.
Wow how can user use a small monitor like 1024*768, I use 1440x900 wide monitor so I have more working space for Illustrator CS2, planning on getting a larger one though, or just buy a Mac with 1920x1200 rez size.
I use 1152x864 - my perfect resolution: when I go to 1024x768 it seems to large and when I go to 1280x1024, it seems too small.
I'm using 1024*768, pretty comfortable with this resolution, not planning to change it anytime soon.
i used to have a 1024*768 desktop with my old 17" crt. but now ive a 19" widescreen lcd and so run at native res of 1440*900
work & game i use 800*600.
internet i use 1024*768.
I've an LG Studioworks 55i CRT.
I'm using 1024 x 768 resolution.
