    whats a good dot pixel pitch?

    im going to get a 19201200 screen, and i love bigger screens, but wont the image look alot better if i get a smaller/medium size one?
    i was going to get a 27" but i think that that would be a little to big for that resolution and it wont look that good
    whats a good pixel pitch i should try to get?

    I think 9120x1200 is good up to about 24", after that it gets a bit pixelated. 27" looks good with 2560x1600. 22": 1680x1050.

    I would read the LCD buying guide found on the front page...

    That's quite a wide monitor you have there

    I say 1920x1080 for a 22" is optimal now.
    I'm still waiting on 2560x1600 to come out for 26" monitors, going to look sweet!

    I'm only using my 22" and a 19" but their both average quality. I've always wanted a very high quality but I've never had the money. I will buy an awesome monitor sometime

    Quality not quantity

    Maybe "ive never seen a 27" 2560x1600... just 30" ones... and would a 27" 2560x1600 display a small picture?"

    Should read the threads more carefully

    Correct size pixel pitch is a very subjective subject, and VERY HEAVILY DEPENDENT ON YOUR VIEWING DISTANCE!

    example #1:
    Many laptop displays have a pixel pitch of 0.2mm or less because they are designed to be viewed from a very small distance.

    example #2:
    Many of our senior (in age) members often discuss their desire for higher pixel pitch (0.3mm or larger) due to their deteriorating eye sight. (no dis-respect intended)

    example #3:
    I bought a 32" Sharp Aquos with a 0.42mm pixel pitch a couple years back, and it was the best monitor I've ever used.....IF, I sit back an view it from a distance. If I lean forward at my desk, the individual pixels become visible, and the overall effect is not so good. http://www.overclockers.com/forums/s...ight=miahallen
