New 24" monitor resolution 1920*1080 or 1920*1200

Recommended Posts

Hi,I am a really late adopter of larger screens as so far been simming (and doing other types of gaming) on a 1440*900 19" Samsung.However now I have decided to go for a new one specifically a 24 inch. What is your recommendation for resolution: the earlier 16:10 style 1920*1200 ones or the more common 16:9 HD screens. I would not do any other activity (such as blue rays etc) other than simming and gaming however I am not sure if modern sims and games support 1920*1200 as well (besides FSX and Xplane I also do DCS and ARMA2)Thanks for your views and most apprciated recommendations,Alex

1920x1200 is a much used resolution and supported in most games and applications (including all the ones you name).However my advice would be to go for the 1920x1080 sreens as there are more of them and they are usually cheaper.The only reason to go for the 19:10 screen is if you really need the extra height.

Definitely go for 1900 x 1200 (Samsung 260T here).Cheers,- jahman.

More pixels the better! Can't think of a downside of choosing the 1200 over the 1080.

Those extra 120 pixels in height can make a pretty big difference in FS. All of my wide-panel monitors are 16:10 format.

I liked the extra height of 16:10 so opted for a Samsung 2693 a couple of years ago. I use the same games as you do. No problems with resolution.

I have a HP ZR24W (1920x1200), best monitor I've ever had!The IPS panel delivers stunning colors, it's very fast and the price is good.You'll get thin black borders when watching 16:9 material, but that's the only downside.
