    For several months now, I've used 1280x1024. I've gotten used to it and it looks good, but the other day, I ran glxgears and wondered why my fps went from around 11 something at full screen to 6 something at full screen. It was the resolution I thought, so I changed back to 1024x768 to verify. Sure enough, that was the cause. Funny thing though, I went, "Wha...! I can now read everything without squinting! I've left it at 1024x768, and honestly, I think I like it better. I get better fps in gaming, The print is larger so it's easier for this old penguin to read, and I don't really notice any degradation with images, web pages and such.

    Got mine about a year ago. It's the 910T and it's been the best monitor I've owned, so far. Text and images are exceptionally sharp!
