Why do so many people have a thing against 1080p??? - Page 5

But on LCDs I don't like even 2x so I don't know.
Please take note that it depends on the AA type if it actually blurs the image or just smoothens edges. The most power hungry type of AA, creating an image twice the resolution in both axis and downscaling it, does not blur the image at all, yet keeps the image sharp. While something as MLAA just smears the whole image and makes it blurry.

So I guess it depends on the type of AA if the image gets blurry. However, no kind of AA can get rid of the "Blurry image limited by resolution, yet smooth edges" effect that I hate. It's a conflict of image quality that just makes my eyes uncomfortable.

EDIT: But enough off topic so this will end here

16:10 has been obsolete the instant 720p lcd hdtvs starting rolling off the assembly line.

As soon as 32" 1080p and 27" 1080p tvs start becoming standard, you'll see less and less people buying "computer monitors".

The only people buying "monitors" will professionals and extreme enthusiast

I just went from a Hanns.G 1920x1200 28" to a Viewsonic LED 1920x1080 27" and i must say that i prefer 1080 over 1200 for both videos and gaming. I lose a titch bit of real estate but feel like ive gained a lot more viewing space for gaming.



also, the picture quality of my viewsonic is just crazy. but thats a different story

That GIF is not a good representation since the frame stays at 16:9

EDIT: And you've actually lost "viewing space" for gaming.. and anything for that matter.

SC2 shows the biggest area on 16:9.

And so do 95% of games


It's called hor+ FOV scaling, and it sees the same vertically on every single resolution out there. Only the horizontal FOV amount changes. And since 1920 is wider compared to 1080 than to 1200, 1080 sees more in game.

i "hate" 1080p because the more resolution for me the better. i dont game much or watch movies on the computer..
browsing, 1080 is not much upgrade from 1050. not that 1200 is enough but it is a considerable upgrade from 1050.
when browsing and multitasking i like as much resolution as i can get.

if i were a gamer resolution wouldnt be much of an issue and probably would prefer 1080 to 1200.
when i game on my 1200 monitor i have resolution down to 1280x1024 so that i can play it on max. when i have the res up to 1200 i dont really gain any advantage. i just have to tone the graphics down and gameplay is average. i prefer 1280x1024 coz i can play the game on max. i also prefer a smaller resolution vs larger resolution for the mouse to cover the screen *faster.

so for me since i barely watch movies or play games i prefer 1200. i like to maximize all pixels i can get.

2 of my monitors 1200p are in portrait mode and pages fit perfect. i can have 3 pages on one monitor unlike having only 2 in landscape mode.
the more pixels up-down the better for me. they should have kept the 5:4 format alive. or given us more options instead of only have 2 choices with 16:10 and 16:9.

4:3 - 5:4 - 16:9 - 16:10
800x600 -
1024x768 - _________ - 1024×576 - 1024×640
1280x960 - 1280×1024 - 1280×720 vs 1280×800
1400x1050 - _________ - 1366×768 vs 1440×900
1600x1200 - _________ - 1600×900 - 1680×1050
1856×1392 - 1800×1440 - 1920×1080 - 1920×1200
2048×1536 __________ - 2048×1152 - 2048×1280
2560×1920 - 2560×2048 - 2560×1440 - 2560×1600

when 5:4's not present 4:3 pwns 16:10 and 16:9. otherwise 5:4 pwns them all... in pixel count.

if only we had more choices i'd have 5:4 monitors.

those are the reasons i "hate" 16:9. they lied to us by selling us less resolution. i dont even consider 16:9 monitors. its too bad 16:10 are also dying breed..

Non widescreen is terrible for gaming... in a way. Immersion drops by a factor of 10. Though, I still use my good 4:3 CRT instead of my bad 24" 1920x1080 and 1920x1200 TN panels. This issue will be gone in a few days with eyefinity.

It's only a minority of console games that run at 1080p, the majority run at around 720p

As far as 1080p being the standard somewhat, I see the barrier mostly being cost of higher rez monitors. once the higher resolution monitors can start seeing a lower price point I think you'll see wider adoption.

It depends on the monitor though, obviously... Like a 1080p HDMI monitor would evidently display the images better than my current monitor, which is essentially a TV/Monitor. Not designed specifically for PC gaming. Ah well, it works well, colours are good, contrast ratio is good, 5ms response time. For cheap too.

But obviously it depends entirely on the user, and what they prefer. But essentially 1080p is inferior to 1920x1200.
