on my workstation, 2x 27". There are some great IPS panels out of Korea that can be had cheaply. They're the same panels as on the high end HP and Apple displays. Fit and finish isn't as nice. The lack of post processing hardware however is nice as it reduces latency.

Right now, 7 inches.

At home, I use a 26 inch LG hd television in place of a conventional monitor.

I travel for a living so smaller is better for me. I would love a large screen but not enough to fork out the cash.

19", and I find it perfect. I often use it to watch Netflix and whatnot from several feet away. Big tv's and monitors are one of those things that you can't go back once using them... My buddy has a 60" tv in his tiny little place, and now I practically can't watch sports on anything smaller.

17.3" on my laptop, 7" on the tablet and I much prefer the laptop in all aspects save for transporting.

I don't have a separate monitor anymore, but when I need one I connect to the TV.

I have a 22" and 19". Its nice to have multiple windows open at the same time. Sometimes when I'm lounging around I kick my feet up, and just use the left monitor. When I'm trying to get work done, I'll use both.

I found two 32" LEDs when we moved. We used one for the twins room and one for my comp monitor.

At work I have a 20" Wide format as my main screen and a 19" 5:4 as the secondary. At home, it's 27" and I don't miss the small monitors at all.
