1024x768 on my desktop and 1400 something x something on my laptop.
Also 1024x768 on my G5.

Am I the only one that finds 1024 x 768 too small for a 17" monitor?

I know I'm on the extreme end here (1800x1440), but the reason I asked was because I have some web dev work and I just wanted to get an idea.

1600x1200

People still use 640x480 and 800x600?

I used 800x600 until last week.

Then I decided to try 1024x768 or whatever it is...

After messing around with the fonts a bit...I've found a really nice balance that is easy to read...while still keeping about 70 icons on my desktop :)

320 X 240 CGA with 4 simultaneous colors ;)

Really 1024X768 on a 19" monitor I just bought.

You're completely alone here :P

No, really though. On my 15in LCD on my laptop I run 1024 x 768 and I have no problems. I may have bumped the font up just a hair but just a bump at that. I would run it really tiny on my desktop but my mom wouldn't be able to find the start button to log out... LOL

2048x1536 baby! Actually, dual 17" monitors running 1024x768 on my G4, 1024x768 on my PC, and 640x480 on my Amiga 1200 :)

I run 1024 X 768 on my old 15" monitor I got with my old computer back in 1996!

According to my website statistics most people use 1024X768, followed my 800X600, then the larger screen resolutions..

1152*864

It's just a little bit bigger than 1024*768, and I'm on a 21" monitor, so it looks right to me :)

1024x768 for me.

1024 x 768. I would have it higher, but my laptop supports only up to this resolution. It doesn't do 640x480 either. 800x600 is the only other option. I wish I could have it higher.

I don't know if Windows lets you do this as easily, but in Linux, it's a fairly simple manner to change the default sizes of text and icons and such... so when you increase the resolution, nothing really gets smaller, it just gets smoother.

One really annoying thing though used to be web pages that would use insanely small fonts, like 9pt or whatever... luckily, most good web browsers (Mozilla and Opera at least) have options to enforce a minimum font size so I can override that nonsense and actually read the webpage.

Any smaller and I'd have to get stronger glasses.

yes.

1024x768...i got one of those flat panel lcd monitors for christmas the year before last...it is a 15". i told my dad i wanted a monitor for christmas and NOT...DO NOT buy one without asking me. so he did anyways and i'm stuck with this crappy monitor that only supports 1024 (800x600 looks like shit) and won't go any higher. the viewability on this piece is crap. i'm lucky to get a true black on 30% of the screen unless i sit 5 feet away. i'd say it has about a 30 degree angle of viewability from side to side. refresh rate is a mere 75 hz, which isn't crap for a good video card and a good game. oh yeah, and if i put it up at 75 hz, the screen blanks out for a quick second every 5 minutes or so...not a big deal but VERY annoying...so i keep it at 72.

what's even more annoying is that the colors looks waaaaay different on an lcd than a crt. i was into doing some web design for awhile, and i'd go over to a friends house and fire the site up and the colors looked totally different...web designers will understand this is annoying.

/rant

be wary of lcd monitors my friends, be very wary. if i could do it all over again, i'd buy my own 17" crt for practically half the cost he paid and go for 1280X1024...as i use alot of programs that would benefit from higher resolutions (like music software)

if i could

What's with all these 4:3 aspect ratio resolutions? And can't your average monitor go higher than 1600x1200? ;)

I am bringing this thread back to life instead of making a new one. I'm just interested in finding out what everyone's computer monitors' native and currently set resolutions are these days. As a bonus, we can contrast and compare today's responses to those from 11 years ago.

I'll start: I am currently running at 1440x900, the native resolution of this monitor, which has a 16:10 aspect ratio.

Considering the original thread is 11 years old, widescreen laptop displays were not that common back then. I didn't get a widescreen laptop until my current one, and that was bought in 2010.

I generally run my desktop at my monitor's prime resolution which is 1600x1200, but if I wanted to bleed from my eyes I can push it to 2744x2058@50hz, before my RAMDAC reaches it's specced limit.

I'm not on it at the moment but its I think 1900x1080 but I'm only certain about the smaller figure.

On my main computer, it's good ol' 1600x1200 using a 'vintage' Hitachi SuperScan 21" CRT monstrocity. On my more modern laptop, 1440x900.

I went and looked it up. On my laptop it's 1920x1080, but if I attach an outside screen 3840x2160 according to this site: http://www.notebookcheck.net/NVIDIA-GeForce-GTX-980M.126692.0.html

It's time for some upgrades. I've been running 1080p since 2009, and that was with an old GTS 250.

How are you guys running Youtube?

YouTube doesn't mind 1024x768, if that's what you're suggesting.

By switching my monitor from its usual 1600*1200 to 1280*960 so I can watch fullscreen 720p without scaling. I don't do 1080p Youtube since my internet can't really handle it and Google are jerks about only serving 1080p with MSE. That being said; if I wanted to watch 1080p video, I would simply switch my resolution to 1920*1440 which would result in only minor pixel bleeding.

Heck, it doesn't even mind 640*480.



On my main computer, it's good ol' 1600x1200 using a 'vintage' Hitachi SuperScan 21" CRT monstrocity.

Doesn't that monitor use a slot mask? If so, I was wondering how that compares to a shadow mask and an aperture grill.

Those setups would drive me crazy.

The only thing I miss about my old 1280 x 800 CRT was playing Dreamcast games in VGA. The VGA box on a 1080p monitor looks like ars.

My top 2 setups are an i5-2500k @4.6 Ghz with an EVGA GTX 670 FTW, connected to a 52" Samsung 1080p LCD with 5.1 surround in the living room, and an i7-4790k @4.6 Ghz with an EVGA GTX 780 Classified connected to a 24" 1080p LCD monitor on my desktop.
