To me wide screen monitors seem like you chopped the top off a perfectly good 4:3 monitor to change the aspect ratio
Well I prefer widescreen much more than a 4:3 monitor. I think the whole purpose of widescreen is that it keeps a greater amount of natural viewing area for the human eyes which are side by side, not above and below. Same reason a movie theater is widescreen and not square, its more natural IMO. Also I think that height isn't as important, but only because (the way I see it) - while gaming its much more helpfull to have a greater horizontal vieweing area than vertical, id rather see a greater amount of a creepy corridor from left wall to right wall than I would care to see of the floor and ceiling.
But its a matter of opinion, and Ive been using a 17" 4:3 for 4 years for plenty of gaming, ive only been using a widescreen monitor for about a week and thats what I think of it
I don't think I could go back to regular 4:3 monitors. I like my 906BW too much.
mine arrives wednesday
if fedex can be trusted. Right now im using my old 22" tv as a monitor and I hate it, I can't wait to get my 906BW.
