And 2560x1600 (16:10) offers even more pixels than that

And there ends the consumer grade single monitor resolutions.

You could argue that there are displays and projectors that offer more than 2560x1600, but most often, they are not consumer grade

Wow you guys totally missed the point of this thread.

It's not about preference. It's about what you're USING right now.

Didn't realize this was such a huge issue on this section eek.gif

Well I both use and prefer 16:10, 2560x1600


For the fastest games I use a GDM-F520, a 4:3 CRT. Resolution/refresh rate combo depends on the game.

Haha...all you've gotta do is pop into a few of the threads in the first two pages...you'll realize that some people take the argument a little too far. But yea, between 1440x900 on my MBA, 1200x800 on my first laptop, 1680x1050 for my first two widescreen monitors, and 1920x1200 right now, and at work I use a 2560x1600 monitor...soooo yea solidly 16:10 in my stable of monitors

It is an issue because some 16:10 users are so desperate that 16:10 is being phased out that they even lie and spread misleading information in a desperate attempt to make people go back to 16:10.

As everybody understand that will never work. But instead of realising that they become even more desperate when they see how 16:10 continues to loose marketshare and users.

I use 16:10 on my desktop (1920x1200) and my laptop (1680x1050). I'm happy with both and I'll stick with this aspect ratio for as long as I can.

You are not seeing straight. I'm one of the most active people going against your cursade against 16:10. See how I worded that? I'm not against 16:9, in fact, I find 16:9 quite enjoyable for some things, but I just don't find aspect ratio that important.

Most of the time, you'll see me recommending 16:9 monitors. Why? Because they fit the application well enough and to get to 16:10 that is otherwise equivalent, you might end up paying almost twice the price, which doesn't fit the persons budget most of the time.
Also no 120hz 16.10 monitors above 1680x1050

How's that for "attempting to make people go back to 16:10"?

The reason why I'm going against most of what you post is because you are in fact the one lying. Support for 16:10 is dropping? Where?

This is the reply to the copypaste post you copypaste everywhere, you don't need to post it here. VVV
The field of view issue is not a support thing, it's the result of simple maths, which also means some aspect ratios would see more than 16:9. The game support thing? You've twisted it, so it doesn't matter, the actual list would be different. Letterboxing in movies also happens on 16:9. And the last bit about windows 8 being best on 16:9, that's simply marketing. The marketing team might've said it, but it is irrelevant what is said, another logical fallacy you make too often. Just because X is designed for Y doesn't mean it's best on Y. Otherwise you'd be playing your games on consoles. wink.gif And that comment only applies for the metro UI on windows 8, which cannot possibly have issues with simply increasing the vertical resolution. Besides, a huge portion of windows 8 systems (prebuilt, laptops, etc) will have non 16:9 monitors, mainly low end 16:10 and 5:4 monitors. Microsoft will simply not drop support for them, that'd just be bad business.

If you feel like replying, reply to this by actual DIRECT reply, not by copypasting that crappy post of yours like you always do. I've seen it, I think I might almost recreate it including each of the typos in it from my head if I was ordered to. I know the message, it is false.



At your edit: Yet another argumentum ad populum, the percentage of users of something does not dictate how good it is, neither does the percentage of people who think it's good affect how good it is.

lol split right down the middle right now. 43 on each

Wow...i never thought there would be fanboys for aspect ratios...XD...That's just incredible. IMO i prefer 16:10, i think it just looks a bit better, but i do use a 1920x1080 (16:9) monitor when i am visiting my parents, and i have no issue with it and my next monitor will likely be 1920x1080 but still. I guess there can be fanboys for anything.
