Maybe too much options but i would like to see it more precise .
I may be wrong , there are many  monitors greater then 26" but i think these aren't so common currently , thus i only made one option for them.

My monitor is 26" .

I'm not sure what size (inches) my screen is, but the resolution is 1600x1200.
They just issued a tornado warning and said to stay away from windows. Does that mean I can't use my computer?

I have the old 19'' and the 23'' I bought last winter. I really like the 23'' . It handles 1920 x 1080 well. The 19'' had poor contrast and color and was square man, like square. ;D

We have here in our house 3 PC's ;  19"  , 22" and my 26" monitor.
The strange thing is the smallest one , the 19" is the best to look at . Only mine is LCD and i am not so pleased with it ( eye strain >:( ) .
If i had money i wouldn't hesitate to change it .

If it is LCD  measure it from the left lower corner to the right upper corner. It should nearly be right.
If it is CRT do the same. But they are mostly bigger then you measure (they count the tube part that you don't see too).

I have a dual-monitor setup. A SyncMaster 2443BW (24", 1920x1200) and an older 19" Philips (1280x1024). That is quite helpful when dissecting TG2 tutorials.^^

I really do. Brightness and color is nice as well as the speed. It might not win a price for its design since it's more functional and down-to-earth but it is fantastic to work with. As I could see with a quick glance, the T260 is from the Touch of Color series. I actually intended to get one of those but I couldn't find any 24" ones with the 1920x1200 resolution at the time. Besides, I could do some in-depth tests with a 2443bw before buying it which I find very advantageous regarding monitors and wasn't possible with any other.
Anyway, how is the T260?

Thanks , Rimmon  :)
It is my first LCD monitor . 1900 x 1200 in 26" (actually it is 25.5" everywhere they say 26" mostly ) is nice!
After the old Philips 22"  it looked great at first . Text can be problematic ; looks too small . I changed the default size and made it bigger.
Then because of this there comes other problems with software who can not accommodate itself to such changes.
Terragen2 is one of them but there are many others of course. You have in some places truncated text and so.
This doesn't bother me much . Anyway...
As i said i have eye strain unfortunately since i bought this monitor. It may be only my problem .
I use glasses . So my eyes aren't in the best condition anyway . But i think it might be because of the low 60 Hz or the back illumination.
I tried with the settings but it didn't help . Beside this problem i like it actually , but then when you can not look at it without eyestrain ...  ;)
