 2304x864

 
 by CyberFoxx on: Aug 17 2006
 
Score 50%

Twinview'd across two CRTs, a 17in NEC and a 17in KDS, both running at 1152x864@75hz. I do use the NEC as the primary display, due to it being flatscreen. The KDS is great for watching videos though.

To be honest, I think I'll be sticking with CRTs till they die. I just can't get used to the feeling of LCDs, even so-called "High-end" ones with almost 0 response time. Just feels like there's something missing from the image, but I can't put my finger on it.

I think it has something to do with the darkness of black. You should take a look at LCD screens with a higher contrast ratio.

 Twin LCDs

Twin LCDs 19 inch 1280x1024.

If you don't game on them LCDs are great for general computing as they are small and you get great geometry without having to mess about.

HD CRTs all the way for TV though, especially for Xbox 360.

 STOP 1024x786

 
 by soulrebel on: Aug 20 2006

one should start a compaign to make people user resolution of AT LEAST 1280x1024.
anything below that is just to small.
i hate to have to develop applications that fit this size.
i think this resolution is only used so widely because it is default on windows and everything else looks too small on windows.
we should not accept this and promote the use of higher resolutions, because they can make ou desktop look much better.

i normally use 1600x1200 on the desktop, but ha d to switch down to 1400x1050, because the frequency on the monitor is very bad...
i my 14" notebook i use 1440x900 and its great :)

you should really only buy notebooks that have resolution bigger than XGA and WXGA.

I agree -- the higher resolution, the better. Unfortunately my LCD is incapable of resolutions higher than 1280x1024 (which is also good)


It is not the size of the hammer that counts. It's how you wield it.

I disagree...
I cannot get a higher resolution than 1024x768 on my laptop nor can I get higher than that on my desktop unless I use nvidia's driver instead of the nv driver. nvidia's driver for me is quite unstable.
1280x1024 makes things VERY small on a 15" monitor which the majority of the world still has. in which taking into consideration those of us that don't have as good of vision as we use to. that's a very bad thing. If you think that we should upgrade to a larger monitor... you wanna supply the money? If not then I guess that's not a very good suggestion.
Not to mention that some of us have no need for large monitors.
So Sorry but 1024x768 has a lot more life on it.

now I will agree that anything below 800x600 shouldn't be supported. Even 800x600 is pushing it but obviously some still use it. not many (1% at the time of posting.)

However saying that we should stop 1024x768 with 25% of the current votes is (sorry but) stupid.

"everything gets soo small on higher resolutions" -> that is soooo windows-talk!
you DO know that you can adjust icon and font-sizes?
as i said, i use 1440x900 on a 14" display, i would use higher resolutions on a 15"...
and why should the "nv" driver not support higher resolutions?

i have experienced the opposite. i have workstation here, that runs an nforce board with onboard gf4mx. it does 1280x960 with "nv" but only 1152x864 with "nvidia"...

oh and btw. yes you should get yourself a screen bigger than 15".
and yes i would provide you with a 17" one if you came to pick it up.

If you do graphics stuff, there are often occasions, where the highest resolution is not always the best. When you do graphics stuff it's not the resolution that counts, but the size of your monitor.

icon and font sizes yes, think about what happens when websites set their font size, do you want to always override their font size? I don't.
Also it's not only the fontsizes but also check boxes, radio buttions things that you can't adjust. plus if your just going to increase the size of everything what's the point in having a higher resolution?

btw I'm glad you can have such a high resolution with just the nv driver.. I can't.
just for the record I refuse to carry around an external monitor with my laptop just so I can have a better resolution.

I find your attitude a little bit arrogant.

There are people that can't afford a laptop with more than 1024x768 and maybe you can't imagine, but there are indeed people in the world, that even cannot affort an external monitor that is good enough to display something above a resolution of 1024x768.

Well, if you consider a laptop with 1440x1050 as standard, you're obviously lucky enough to live in a rich country.

And well... I won't tell you that 1440x1050 is crap just because my laptop can display 1920x1200 (which is really great, but I do not forget that not everybody may have the pleasure to work with such a display in the next years).

hey i am not trying to be nazi here!
and i am not demanding that you carry around a monitor with your laptop.
what i am saying, is that most of the people using 1024x768 dont use it because they have notebook or a monitor from the early 90s, but because thats what they were used when they used windows!
most people COULD use a higher resolution and most people COULD chose when they buy a notebook/monitor.
the only way higher resolutions will become cheaper, is if people go for it.
i guess most average new notebooks nowadays cost ~1000$ - 1500$ or €s.
heck people even spend twice that much on macbook or thinkpad, but they just dont think about the resolution!
dell for example offers high resolutions on nearly all notebooks for not much extra, but nearly nobody cares...

oh and yes it makes a difference, if you adjust the text- and iconsizes with the resolution, just try it!
oh and you can tell konqueror to automatically adjust fonts on websites. on good websites you wont notice.
but the widgets not gettin bigger is exactly the point where everything looks clearer and better and you have more space than before.
you should really try it out!

I'm not so sure your logic makes much sense either.

I have a little ultraportable with like a 10-inch screen. If that thing ran at anything considerably higher than 1024x768, I'd need a friggin magnifying glass.

It's really all dependent on your screen size.

I run two 23-inch or a single 30-inch apple panel at full resolution most of the time. It's seriously great. I have room everywhere. But those are, by any standard, really big displays.

I think it's best to just let people use whatever they feel comfortable with. Their computers, after all.


windows on a mac? who the hell would want to do that?

Too f'ing bad! If you can't make an application fit into 1024x768, then that is your problem. Fix your UI, don't blame the user.

 Dualhead

Score 50%

I use a dualhead setup with 1280x1024 on my TFT and 1360x768 on the LCD-TV.

To make this work properly I need to use a different $KDEHOME on the TV for things like icon- and fontsizes. It would be really great if the Look&Feel modules of KControl would allow different settings for different displays.

Or if amarok would allow the output of libvisual plugins to be sent to a different display.

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
