What monitor resolution you use for Visual Studio.NET?

 4:03 pm on Sep 18, 2006 (gmt 0)

Hi everybody,

I am researching for a new monitor which my main usage would be for VS.NET. I am more inclined towards 1600x1200 (vs 1680*1050) as it there would more vertical pixel, hence you can see more code. so what do you guys use?

Well, I use 1280x960 because I'm only on a 19" screen, and I can say unequivocally that that ain't wide enough <g>. My next purchase will definitely be a wide-screen model, so I can see longer lines of code, plus both side toolbars.

I'm not that interested in more vertical area, because I collapse code sections that I'm not working in at any given moment... I just don't like my lines to wrap too soon. The 1680x1050 would suit me just fine. Eh, FWIW.

1680x1050 here... 21" on an HP f2105 and it gives me all the code I want + the solution explorer, toolbox, properties menu and output dumpbox.

1280*1024 here.. width is fine, but i wish i had more height.

thanks guys. so far it seems there are better deals on 1680 resolution. i think it is becomming more popular. you can even get a 22" for under $500.

1680x1050 here... more than enough space.

dual 20.5" LCD by dell

cool finally one 1600*1200. Yesterday i bought this Acer 22" (1680*1050). The resolution is ok, what surprizes me is that i feel eye strain even after 10 mins. could be the panel type, i guess.

so i think for the sake of VS.Net i should look for a more eye-friendly LCD.

I have these two -
1280X1024 19" (HP L1906)
1024X768 17"

The 19" is great for database projects where you have more windows in vstudio.

I spend most of my day coding. I use dual Samsung 204T SyncMasters. They're right around 21 inches.

The one I use for coding and stuff is 1600x1200.

The one I use for browsing and stuff is tilted so it's effectively 1200x1600. Nice for viewing entire pages on one screen.

These monitors are the only place I don't need to wear glasses. Don't know about the rest of you but I hate to wear my glasses. And I also hate to scroll horizontally to see my code. I'm very happy with my solution.
