    24" always makes a good display.

    And another here, my desk has to sit away from the wall at the monitor end to fit it on, and the desk is bending with the 30KG pressign down on it, but for £25 it worth not having any room to put a chair :D

    Dual Dell 20Ws. One landscape, one portrait. And yes, I consider both to be my primary as I use both concurrently, many times with a single app spread across both.

    Mine is a 15.4" wide (laptop screen) but the resolution is HUUUGE @ 1680*1050 (for 15 inch it is huge)
    (I put "other" in the poll)

    I've had my Samsung SM206BW 20" wide since the end of March. Had a Samsung 913N 19" standard before that so the size increase wasn't huge, but the actual resolution means I've got a lot more space on screen, which is very nice.

    Why do people like their square 19"screens?
    I have a 19" widescreen, and know that they are much more comfortable.
    And cheaper.

    I think it's the vertical height that's the problem for most... I'd need a 20-22" wide to replicate a 19" in terms of height. Of course, if I was gaming, I'd prefer a 19" wide over a 19" 5:4. :)

    I've got a 15" flat panel floating around somewhere too (the one I mentioned earlier was my laptop)... nothing wrong with that. But SVGA is 800x600; 1024 is XGA.

    3 X 19" on a Matrox Triple Head 2 Go

    Windows sees it as one display and i treat it as such, so i voted other.

    30" Widescreen here... Really need to get a new graphics card to run most games at their highest setting... :(

    Graphic Design does have its perks... :D
