LCD Resolutions:

LCD monitors are super. Theyíre flatter, lighter, and letís face it, cooler than the bulky old CRTs out there. However, unlike CRTs, LCDs look their sharpest at their native resolutions, such as 1,280 x 960 or 1,600 x 1,200 pixels, as listed in their usersí manuals. If you have your computerís display settings set to a different resolution, onscreen text and graphics may appear slightly fuzzy. On the other hand, the native resolution may be so fine relative to the physical size of the screen that onscreen objects may be way too small for your tastes. If the labels of your icons are too tiny to read at the LCDís native resolution, try lower settings until you find a resolution thatís reasonably sharp.
