How big is yours?

The PC Monitor... mine is 19 inches, wide screen, flat panel... @ 1440 x 900 resolution. It looked so big 2 years ago. Now is just... small.

My old job I had a 28" and a 20"... so much screen, almost too much.

Now I just have two 22". Good enough I suppose.

Home is one 20". Rarely do work at home anymore so not gonna clutter up my desk with one more.

I'm using an ancient 20 inch monitor. Going to get a 22 lcd soon.

My first monitor was a Sony 13, but it was really a 12. Can't believe I used it now.

I'd like to go to 24, but my video card can't push that many pixels in video games and keep the eye candy. Oh well.

47" LCD... 1920x1080... doubles as an HDTV when I'm not using it as a computer monitor.

I used to have dual Viewsonic 19" CRTs. Now I have a single 20.1" widescreen. I miss my dual monitors. It's a PITA trying to do graphics, write code, AND surf pr0n at the same time with one monitor!

22" and 19" on my home computer, not sure about the laptop, think it's 15 or 17". My work computer is 19" but hopefully will be dual 19's soon.

Normally I work on a 24" wide-screen. I do project on a 53" LCD but since the resolution is still only 1920x1080, it isn't like I am able to see more stuff, it just makes each pixel bigger. Good for sharing videos and stuff but not so much for work.

I would like a resolution of 4000x2250 or so. Then a larger monitor will be helpful.

24" Dell LCD (1920x1200) on the desk in our office here at home. Another 24" 1920x1200 LCD (Westinghouse) downstairs for the spare computer.

Can't convince the wife that I should put both on the desk upstairs....

Work desk, for the 2 or 4 days a week I'm in the office, has a 24" and 19" LCD.

Same here. I've never really considered getting a larger monitor.

Dell 20" 2007WFP A04 / LG-Philips 1680x1050 S-IPS overdrive panel (best 20" wide screen panel of it's day, same one apple used in it's 20")
Viewsonic 19" VP191b / AU Optronics 1280x1024 MVA overdrive panel (one of the better 19" panels during it's day)

both have true 24bit colour reproduction unlike cheaper monitors

1680x1050 20" LCD. I'll probably get a 30" at some point, since I gave my TV away. I haven't had a TV in over a year, and I figure 30" is big enough to double as a monitor and TV.

as a side note, 19" make great 1024x1280 portrait mode monitors for reading books on your pc.
