I brought over my computer from the States. The monitor is 19" which is really good for someone who wears granny glasses. We had a problem and it wouldn't let me on the net anymore so we bought a new computer. This one has a flat screen which is great. The only problem is that the screen is only 13". Talk about tiny!!!! I have to look through the bottom of my glasses and squint to see anything! One of these days I will save up for another 19" but it will be a flatscreen. The bigger the screen, the easier it is to see!!!

My current monitor is a 17", my last one was a 31", that's not a typo, yes 31". It's bigger than my console TV set. It was lovingly named "The Monster". I bought it back in 1997 from Gateway. It quit working about a year ago. The 17" was my spare. I miss my Monster a lot. It was nice to read books or play games laying back on the couch or across the room. Gateway has a 33" now but I don't have the money for it. Maybe someday.. LOL.

I have a 15". It is big enough for me. Anything bigger and I think it may not fit on my desk!! I don't think I would like a 13" though. I think 15 is great for me.

I have three monitors. One is a flat-screen 17 inch on my desktop which my wife uses. I also have a laptop with a 15 inch, and a second 17 inch monitor hooked to my laptop. I really like having two monitors running on one computer. That way I can work on something on one screen while having information I need showing on the other screen. My laptop came equipped to just plug in a second monitor, so it wasn't any hassle getting it working. I would hate to go back to one.

I think mine is a 17" monitor. I really like the size. I don't know how I managed for so long with one smaller than this.

I think mine is a 17" or 19". I think the screen is fine for me. Actually once you get used to a thing, it will become fine. I am not sure if I want a bigger screen since it might be weird and would take some getting used to all over again.

I recently bought a new monitor. It is a 19 inches LCD monitor and I like it: it is larger than the my preceeding monitor, it was a 17 inches CRT one, and its power consumption is lower (40 Watt vs 100 Watt) even if it is larger.

My monitor ia a 19 inch flat screen, and they are well worth the investment. I was actually looking at a 26 inch wide screen monitor at the computer fair a couple of hours ago. The whole appearance was absolutely stunning and both myself and my friend were very tempted indeed. If I had been using a small monitor than 19 inch then I would probably have conceded and bought one.

My desktop is a 17 inch, and my laptop is a 17 inch widescreen. For me, anything bigger starts to feel like a TV screen rather than a computer, although I find 21 inch moniters pretty nice as well. With monitors in all different sizes, it is getting harder to make my websites display properly across the board when I design them! Oh dear! Oh dear!

I have a 15 inches LCD Monitor at Home and 15.4 inches CRT monitor at my office. I also own a Laptop of 14 inches. Im looking for changing into 19inches monitor very soon. Bigger the screen, better the viewing pleasure for the user. I believe, even the rates of the bigger screens are slowly coming down nowadyas. Hope I can afford for a 19 inch monitor very soon.

I have a widescreen but I forget the inches, I think it is a 20 inch. I am finding I am really liking the widescreen style, I did not think I would care for it as much - so surprise surprise.

I just recently upgraded my 17inch monitor to a 19inch Acer Widescreen one, it looks so much better. You can get 21inch monitors and you could even hook up your tv to your pc if needed, although for me a 19inch monitor is big enough.
