16:9 vs 16:10 for Gaming/General Use - Page 4  

post #31 of 45
16:10>16:9. Better image quality is better than larger FOV. You don't really need extra FOV. It's not like you're going to be staring at the sides of the screen.

The amount of misinformation in this thread is simply staggering.

It's just preference. 16:9 is definitely not the standard, it is a standard, just like 5:4, 4:3, 16:9.5, 16:10, the list goes on. Use what you are comfortable with.

I have a 16:10 monitor and a 16:9 monitor. I prefer the 16:10 by a large margin. But that is only MY preference.

Again, use what best benefits you, and not what others think.

I have 16:9 and 16:10 monitors, its hard to tell. But for movies and games 16:9 and 16:10 doesn't have any difference but real difference come on browsing where 16:10 wins by a huge margin and also when working with stuff like premier and photoshop 16:10 is clear winner. My preference for gaming is 16:9 monitor because some game just don't support proper texture resolution to scale for 16:10 resolution because most of them are console ports mad.gif

Left is my 23" 1920x1080 monitor and right is my 24" 1920x1200 monitor. And a 24" 1920x1200 looks like a 27 inch 1080p monitor if u compare with my other monitor u2711. 16:10 makes a massive size difference for browsing and working with multimedia stuff.

This. At least the majority realize it's a preference.

Not all of us would spend that much money on a monitor.

And most of the gamer ones that would (like me) would get a s27a950d or the new VG278h which im getting soon...

Mine were two 23 inchers but it doesn't matter. Think you just like to argue just to argue.

No, I dont.

Inch in this field is just a rough estimation of size and not size.

The size is as follows.


Your porposal

16:9 - 225.96 sq. in.
16:10 - 237.71 sq. in.
Difference: 11.75 sq. in.

My proposal

16:9 - 225.96 sq. in.
16:10 - 217.58 sq. in.
Difference - 8.38 sq. in.

For gaming, the 1920x1080 is better (wider viewing area)

For productivity, the 1920x1200 resolution is better (more pixels)

both are good. either is fine with me. i visually like 16:10 more...it feels more natural. Though I like to game/work in 16:10 more..16:9 does get a slight edge in most gaming due to FOV (not enough for me to notice tbh). But you can always change the 16:10 to 16:9 in game if need be.
