Lately my husband and I exchanged computers. He uses my laptop and I use his little computer. Actually it shall be good for me as the computer is faster. However, I don't like the big LCD monitor. I said to my husband that it seems I can't see all things because it is big. I prefer to have a small LCD monitor. Anyway, I don't regard it as a TV set, so I don't need to have a big monitor.

Hi youless, I owned a big LCD monitor before as well. But I didn't feel comfortable watching movie or documentary on it. I had to sit rather far away from it and so the volume should be adjusted to rather higher too, so that I could hear the conversation or explanation clearly. If didn't do in this way I would feel dizzy and having headache later consequently But my elder brother loves big LCD monitor and he was really happy when the big LCD monitor was given to him. I'm happy with my 14.1 in laptop LCD. It's so handy and comfortable either working on or watching movies and tv programs on the smaller screen Happy posting

I believe your husband is used to his big monitor LCD. And after he has finished using your laptop dong his work he would return it to you. or may be he would buy you a brand new small monitor to please his loved one

I also think most probably your husband will return the laptop after finishing his work and will work on the desktop.

The problem with a big LCD monitor is that the screen is so wide that we find it hard to see everything in the monitor. We still have to move our heads side to side. Another problem, is that you were not accustomed to it. Maybe you just have to use it from time to time for you to like and adapt the big LCD monitor.

I would like a big screen LCD monitor for my computer because my eyesight isn't that good so a big screen would really make the images and words on the screen easier to see. Right now, I'm using a 17inches LCD monitor for my computer and I feel that it's quite small. I want a 24inches monitor. That would make it clearer for me to see.

actually, for me, a smaller monitor is better than a big monitor. in the house i have only a LCD monitor which is i think 10-12inches only. it is quite small for others point of view, but it is more comfortable for me. for me, big LCD monitors are only to those users who sits in front of the computer 1 meter away. LOL. :)

The big monitor is suitable to watch movies, but not for a the computer usage.

Long time go big monitors were very costly and cannot think of buying it. Now a days the big monitors price have come down and some people use big monitors as television also.

Oh I see, I haven't tried a big monitor for I am only using my laptop since then. But with your experience, I guess it is really hard to spot all the corners of the screen for its too big. Whereas if we are using the smaller one we can almost see everything even when our eyes is in only one direction.

Just like any individuals, you are used to certain things. I am somewhat the opposite of you. I would adore something big and bigger. I bought my first desktop back in 2004. I also bought a 19 inch LCD monitor separately. In 2010, I had my first netbook (my first experience with portable computer). When my desktop became out or order, I started hooking up my netbook to my 19 inch LCD so I can get better view. For those of you who don't know the difference, netbook is a small laptop with display screen around 13 inch. The 19 inch display helps me see a bigger picture without having to scroll down a lot. That netbook last about a year since I probably overused it. Since then, I have a new notebook (display screen around 15 inch+) and I also hook it up to my LCD monitor back and forth. I would love to have a fancy iMac, the one with 27 inch monitor. Nowadays, you can watch movies, TV shows, and any entertainment. 15 inch display is ok if your display is WIDE.

I was confused with your expression before. Of course, I know what you mean now. Why did you call your husband's computer as little computer?

I think it's justa matter of adaptation: it's strange and uncomfortable when it's new and you can't live without it once you are used to it. I used to have a 14" scree on my pc. When I got a 17" I thought "wow... that's almost too big!" Years later I got a 19" and it was about the same feeling. Today I have a laptop with a 15,6" and it's ok even though it seemed small at the beginning.

LCD monitor is better since it is light and it will not use a lot of electricity.

Hi Youless,I like a smaller screen as well i find i can see more. You would think it would be the other way round that bigger would be better but in this case its not all the best.

I agree it really depends, because sometimes I prefer doing things on a computer on a smaller screen like on my notebook, nevertheless sometimes I prefer a bigger one like my desktop especially when I watch movies.

Hello you less The thing is that for every dimension there is a recommended distance to sit from the monitor. For example for a 17 inch monitor, recommended is 50cm, for 19 inch recommended is 70cm, so you can see why for a big LCD which probably means 23 or above, you could actually consider it a television at least for the distance needed to avoid personal injury if none other.

I think big monitors are mainly used for watching videos and for graphics. May be you can use it to watch movies and television channels through TV tuner cards. I think some people like big movies. Another thing you can do is to have a big table and to push the monitor backwards. This will help you to to adjust to the big monitor. I have not used laptops except one or two times. I hope to buy a laptop in the future and saving money for it. I think people who use laptops continuously prefers laptops than to desktops.
