March monthly poll - What type of display are you using?
« on: February 27, 2010, 01:29:13 PM »
For the month of March we thought it would be interesting to see what type of display setup you're using on your computer. Feel free to talk more about your display setup or if you think you've got a unique monitor setup or want to show off feel free to post pictures of your setup.

All past monthly polls and results can also be found on the Computer Hope poll page.

I'm using a 21 inch Dell CRT.  I got an Acer 15.6 inch widescreen monitor for Christmas but it's too small. I hooked it up for one day and then put it back in the box. I have several older CRT monitors. Ten of them work.

I've got a 19" CRT that has outlived a couple of computers.  As much as I would like to get a larger HD flat screen, I just can't seem to justify the cost while this one is working fine.  The day this thing breaks, hello flat screen.

Laptop: use its built-in screen, of course, but also have an 18.5" LCD widescreen monitor (1366 x 768) attached to it for dual display. 
Primary desktop: dual monitors - a 17" CRT (1024x768) and a 19" non-widescreen LCD (1280x1024).
Secondary desktop: 19" LCD (1680x1050)

    Other than the DVD and floppy drives, my 15" LCD monitor is all that remains of the original Compaq computer I bought in 2001. This monitor is still chugging along and though I am always keeping an eye out for a good deal on a replacement I never actually buy one because when it gets right down to it, the old monitor works fine.

    Two 19-inch 1440x900 LCD monitors.

    One monitor is connected to my HP Mini (so I don't have to look at the tiny screen) and the other is a dual-monitor setup with my 16-inch Lenovo laptop.

    I am always keeping an eye out for a good deal on a replacement I never actually buy one because when it gets right down to it, the old monitor works fine. 
    The 19" non-widescreen LCD (1280x1024) I mentioned was free.  It was turned in to a recycling event conducted by a computer user's group to which I belong.  At that time, it did not work.  One of the group members repaired it and I became the new owner.  I've had it for 6 months or so and it has worked fine.

    Prior to getting that monitor, I was using two 17" CRT monitors on my Primary desktop system. As stated in my previous post, I now have one of those 17" CRTs and the 19" non-widescreen LCD attached to it.  I still have the de-commissioned 17"CRT; I'll probably hang on to it for quite awhile as a spare in case it's needed.

    The 18.5" LCD widescreen monitor (1366 x 768) I mentioned in my previous post is a ASUS VH192D I got from newegg.com.  They were running a special sale price on it at the time and a $30 mail-in rebate was also in effect then.  The net cost was a very low $70.   :)

      17" CRT monitor (Samtron 76V).

      The CRT works just fine, so why would I need a LCD?
