    I have 2 20.1" NEC 2080UX+ LCDs noel, native resolution is 1600x1200, i wouldnt work on anything smaller anymore, once you use a res for a period of time, going back is like going from an LCD back to CRT (ie not likely) and I used 3 of these monitors in my last position for almost 2 years
    so i had to fork out 2 grand for the monitors, lol :)


    now now nugget, no need for that :)
    thats what the window in the side of the case is for!
    lol

    oh dear :)

    Reslolution is one of the key factors in deciding a new monitor to me
    fortunatly the 2080UX+ is pretty much unbeatable for me, does 1600x1200, 16ms response time, decent contrast ration, DVI-D and DVI-I/VGA connectors (dual input), i dont go higher than 1600x1200 really yet, as its the most nearly any monitor does

    it really imrpoves your performance i feel, having this much desk real estate gives me far better ability for multi tasking, i can write reports/documentation, and still view websites/source material, whilst having server/network monitor apps running (or at home, music/videos)

    which allows me to be over 60% more effeciant than having to ALT+TAB between windows all the time :)

    Sorry to hi-jack the thread but what Server/network monitoring software do you use, we are looking at setting up a couple of monitors at work with some sort of 'dashboard' system on them.

    1400 by 1050 pixels on my laptop.

    My 'woman' boss at work this evening said "ooh how come the letters on your screeen RRR sooo smallll"

    To which I replied "well when I first used this computer the screen resolution was set at 800 x 600 but just because I wear glasses doesn't mean I'm half blind you stupid fat ugly bint.I don't need the words that big so what I've done is set the screen resolution to 1024 x 768, which is my preferenceI'm setting it like this coz that's how I want:!: it:!: so f8*k off:!:asking me stupid questions"
    To which she said:
    "ooh ok if that's how you like it I suppose that should be alright"(in her sarcastic voice)
    To which I replied "Ok, see you later sod off and buy yourself another mars bar from the vending machine.You look like you need some comfort food for the fact that your face looks like a slapped ar$e.

    Black is what I was thinking, normal text what I actually said.

    Derek, we use something called scrambler which I didn't have too much to do with the configuration of but seems to do the job and includes environment monitoring as well. In the past i've used Servers Alive which I found very good, it's easy to configure, monitors virtually anything you want to point it at and has a wide variety of notification options and apart from all that it's cheap too :)

    Well of course I have the 3D depth visualiser software on my (group) of plasmas so a comfortable resolution would be (at minimum) 1920 X 1425 X 1024.

    Please note as well as X and Y co-ordinates I have Z co-ordinates included as well, which naturally you should do with 3D spatial resolutions.

    Oh hang on, this isnt the year 2099 is it?

    Silly me...
