    Default suggested min display size for fullHD

    hey, long time i came across on these forums
    i'd like some advice from ppl with more experience regarding a monitor i plan to buy in the following days/weeks
    Benq E2200HD is the one i had my eyes on for a while now for a blasting good price and none the less it supports fullHD resolution. my only concern is how does fullHD show up on a 21.5" display? will it be hard to read maybe?
    i was also looking at his big brother, the E2400HD (24"), but that's comes at almost double $ and i'm not really keen on that as it would spoile my plans for upgrading my gfx card in the following months.
    (pls don't confuse me with alternative options )

    thanks

    fullhd is 1920x1080 i'm guessing or similar. meant for movies.. and you can always increase the dpi for fonts if they're too small for you, so i wouldn't worry about readability. that said, i know nothing about monitors

    I have a 22" and a 24" LCD sitting here beside me right now. HD looks fine on the 22", and overall the 24" doesn't seem that much bigger to be honest, especially if it costs so much extra. Keep in mind though that the 22" or 24" will not look like a 37" or 42" HDTV sitting in your living room. The clarity on the 22" is awesome but the images are smaller as a result.

    Honestly, save your money and get the 22". There's no point spending that much more cash for just a couple of inches of viewing space. It only makes sense to spend the extra money if you jump up to an HDTV, which is another story altogether from a computer monitor.

    I doubt you'll be watching a 22" HD computer screen from your couch anyways. You'll be sitting at your desk with it right in front of you so the size should be just fine.

    cheers
    well i would've bought the E2200HD weeks ago, but someone told me ergonomically it's not the best, because 1080 on a smaller display would result in smaller text and whatnot so i started getting 2nd thoughts. now i just have to find a place to get one of those.

    I forgot to mention that 1080p is 1920 rez, so the 24" is full 1080p, that is correct. I was just pointing out though that you PAY for that capability as a result, that's the thing.

    Image scaling can be decent for most monitors when watching movies, but when you're using the monitor for regular use then fonts shouldn't be a problem because you'll run the screen at its native resolution of 1680x1050, not 1920.

    Hey Romeozor,

    My Dad bought the E2200HD for Christmas, and it's a killer display. You're right about the smaller text, but it's really not an issue. Even at 1920 res it's perfectly readable.

    The only drawback I've found thus far is some light bleeding at the top and bottom of the panel when displaying darker colors, but it doesn't worry me.
