Hi all, Welllll,
How many years have you had the crt? I find on crt's that the text appears fuzzy, not as crisp/sharp, and you're eyes just get tired quicker. I'm running a 20" tft at 1680 x 1050. Not so common as most monitors ive seen are 22"'ers at that res. If I go from 1280 x 1024 to 1680 x 1050 I get a shock haha, but i ease back into it. If you go from using a 17" crt to a 20/22 inch tft under 1680 x 1050 you'll see how great it is viewing photos. I couldnt imagine resizing a photo thats original res is 3872 x 2592, at 800 x 600. I just love setting the view to 100% and looking at all the details. I then just crop what I want to see.
Its all about what you are used to.
