I could actually post this in the 'what annoyed me . . ’ section, but here’s as good as anywhere.
My old Acer 17" 5:4 monitor is starting to play up so I’ve been looking (for a week or more) at replacing it with something a little more upmarket . . . but the market seems to be full of dodgy geezers selling a multitude of tat in various formats :sigh:
I like the 5:4 format, it’s perfectly acceptable to me as an all round performer but sadly everyone does ‘widescreen’ nowadays
OK, so I’ll go widescreen . . . erm, 16:10 or 16:9 . . 16:10 is my preference but the mainstream is 16:9 :ghey:
Next, which panel type ? TN, IPS, eIPS, VA, MVA, PVA blah blah blah (got a headache already) each with their own inherent problems regarding backlight bleed, IPS glow, response times, colour fading, crap blacks, ghosting, image blur etc etc
Makes me think I’d be better off with a 32" TV and an x-box :o
