  1. Many thanks guys, its pretty clear from the answers that it was a daft question in that 16:9 is not a "magic" HD aspect ratio compared with 16:10, just a sales pitch given to 16:9 aspect ratio. I actually prefer the 16:10 ratio I have on the 22" and if the picture quality is basically the same between 1920 x 1080 and 1920 x 1200, then I might just stick with 16:10. I was fooled by the badging of the 16:9 monitors as Full Hd thinking these were of superior picture quality. Thanks again!
  2. Firstly thanks for the answer and apologies, don't think I made the question very clear. So, just as you said, for the HD 1080p the monitor will be a 16:9 aspect ratio. The question I was trying to ask was just that, if I want full HD quality, does the monitor need to be 16:9? From what I can see on the internet, I can easily buy a 16:10 monitor but they do not seem to be HD. Clearly the HD monitor will be the best solution so if that means 16:9 then no problem at all.
  3. Apologies if this is a daft question, I'm looking to upgrade my monitors to 27" and realised that my current 22" monitors are 16:10 aspect ratio. If I want full HD quality, do I need to go with 16:9 aspect ratio? The 16:9 obviously loses a bit of vertical height but if its the way to get the best quality picture, then I'd be happy to go that route. I plan to go with 1920 x 1080 as I've read if I increase the resolution I will suffer lower frame rates. Thanks!
  4. Gentlemen, Many thanks for your valued input, much appreciated! Just a final question, would you say that based on maintaining the 1920x1080 resolution, will there will be a noticeable reduction in picture quality jumping from 22" to 27"? Maybe very subjective? Thanks, Gary
  5. I'm planning on changing out my 22" monitors for 27". The existing are 1920x1080 and plan the same for the replacements. I've read that resolution higher than 1920x1080 is preferable but comes at a cost to performance. I don't want to compromise on frame rates in any way but feel my overall experience will be greater with the larger monitors. I just want to make sure I don't fall into a trap as I'm not expert on this subject? Also wanted to check there was no issue in mixing monitor sizes? I currently use 3 x 22" in a pyramid configuration with the lower monitors being for VC and External Views and the upper monitor for Active Sky. Don't plan on changing the upper monitor, only the lower 2 but want to make sure there will be no issue with using 2 x 27" and 1 x 22"? Many thanks in advance! Gary
