Screen Resolution

We've covered this tangentally in other polls, but it's been brought to my attention that perhaps the range of screen resolutions of our members might be a bit wider than I suspected. I assumed that, as graphics editors, everyone was running at a high (or very high) resolution, and used that assumption when designing this site. But we all know about assumptions, so let's find out definitively.

What is your screen resolution?

On my computer, I'm running 1024 X 768. My wife's is set at 640 X 480. The menu is displayed just fine on mine, but on my wife's, part of the menu is cut off. I do my Photoshop work on mine, but at times I jump on hers to check things out.

I'm using 1280 x 1024 at 85hz refresh rate. I'd use 1600 x 1200 for the size, but at that resolution I can only get a 72hz refresh rate out of my video card, which I don't really like.

I had to look at Properties to see what I have it set at. It's not set at the highest setting but pretty close. I'm set at 1792 x 1344 pixels. I don't like to scroll very much.

Gee DJ, are you using a 40" monitor

At that resolution everything must be microscopic

I'm with Ed.....1024x768 for working but if I want to read anything lengthy I switch back to 800x600...17" monitor.

I guess it's small because I see other peoples settings and everything looks so big but I don't even notice it. I don't have trouble reading anything and no I don't have a 40" (wish I did) but I do have a 21".
I think my idea of the perfect computer set up is a 70" monitor (like the big screen tvs) with a recliner so I can put my feet up and relax and everything at my finger tips. Ergonomics at their best.

I voted 800x600, but really I'm with Ed & Jill. I switch it to 1024x768 when working. I just can't read web pages and email comfortably at the higher resolution.
