BenQ FP 737 / 931 Owner Comments Please?

Discussion in 'Video Cards' started by Barney Rubble, Dec 5, 2004.

  1. Hi all,
    What a relief to find a group discussing LCDs! I've been searching for a
    while and I was beginning to wonder if one existed!
    Firstly I'm debating between the 2 above screens and would appreciate
    comments from current owners.

    Secondly I have a question regarding resolution. My current CRT is running
    at 1024 x 768 and is quite comfortable for me. My desk is such that I sit
    approx 30" back from the screen , although I can move closer of course. I
    set the resolution of my current monitor to 1280 x 1024 and it's just too
    small from my current vantage point. My question is - Will 1280 x 1024
    appear 'larger' on a 17" LCD than it does on my CRT or will I have to get
    the 19" for comfortable viewing ?

    Many Thanks
    Barney.

    If your current monitor is a 17" CRT then the image on a 17" LCD will be
    3/4" to 1" larger. Whether that's enough nobody can answer for you because
    we don't have your eyes.
