Anyone else using a 22" monitor? I got a question. I upgraded from a 19" flat CRT to a Samsung LCD TV with a pc input. So far I don't know if I'm happy.
- Fonts are crazy big.
- Everything is stretched in a weird widened fashion.
- Sharpness seems less than old monitor.
1. Is this because I'm using a LCD TV and not a "true" computer monitor?
2. Or is the larger screen and better resolution just exposing my crappy graphics card. (much like watching a vhs tape on a HD tv)
I'm running 1280 x 1024. But you got me thinking. That's a resolution for non wide monitor.
I don't see anything higher though. Driver issue?
Or video card issue. I have a Samsung T200HD (probably the next size smaller than your monitor) and I don't have any problems with it. My resolution is 1680x1050 and everything looks great. If you can't set the video to a widescreen setting, then I would update your video card driver, or, as a last resort, buy a new video card.
My 22' widescreen is also set to 1680x1050. You should set the Windows resolution setting to the monitor's native resolution (check the box) and go from there (DPI settings, browser text size, font size, etc).
