Sam, I have it at 1152x864, 84 megahertz refresh rate. I could make things smaller, but then I'd need glasses. The monitor is designed for color accuracy. How they achieve that, and why it's supposed to be better that your Viewsonic, I can't say. I opted for this on the strength of advice from Patch29, Zero-Zero and a number of favorable reviews.

Um.. I couldn't tell by the photo (and can't be arsed to Google it at the moment, been busy Googling gadgets and forums), but, is that a CRT or LCD?
