Hi Bruce,

I've been wondering the same thing... I paid over $1000 for mine :( But so far I can say it is worth every penny :yes:

On the eve of my new purchase of the 2405, I find myself wary of the 1900x1200 resolution that comes with it. I have a 21in CRT and use 1280x960. I use this resolution because I really really hate everything being so small at higher resolutions. I just tried an experiment that I have tried many times in the past. I switch my CRT to 1600x1200 (closest i can come to 2405 native 1900/1200) and try to adjust all the settings to the point where I can actually see the tiny next on web pages without extra effort. I played with DPI scaling...font sizing....IE font override. But all these efforts fall short in some way to giving me a good viewing desktop. The fonts may be big, but the menu and buttons are still not properly scaled. I can almost live in windows with all the large fonts (which makes them almost BOLD typeface) but I cannot live with the tiny text on the net.

Is there any solution that I'm overlooking? I really want this monitor and am perfectly willing to spend the cash, but why spend that kind of money if it will give me an inferior experience. If I buy a 24in monitor but scale everything up, am I really gaining any extra desktop space? In a perfect world I would be able to use 1280x960 on this new panel without all the stretching...

Please help...

No need to worry. The dot pitch is .27 and everything looks bigger than it would on your 21" at the equivalent rez. The tft will also be much sharper.

Basically, text is easy to read. It's a joy infact.
