What Monitors Are You Using For FS?

Thu Oct 25, 2007 6:41 am

Like resolution and size?

I have 1680 x 1050 at 22inches.

I am currently using my 17" MacBook Pro on bootcamp, not sure about the resolution on windows. Hopefully I'll be able to get a 22" or so to put next to it and insert a touchscreen panel.

Can I use widescreen? I am using a 17" LCD square screen but worried that a widescreen might look ridiculous with FS9. Can I use a 19"" widescreen.

I use a Dell 21 inch 'ultrasharp' at 1680 x 1050. I don't have a joystick though at the moment, so I'm a bit poor at FS!

Of course you can..

I used to have a 15'' normal square screen, but now i have a 22'' widescreen I think it is, and believe me, it looks alot better on a widescreen than a square one.

I only fly in the virtual cockpit, so it is not an issue.

same here. Dual 19" Samsung monitors, at a res of 1280x1024 each. I always fly Level-D 767 in VC mode, so no stretchy panel problems for me Big grin
