    What size and type of computer monitor do you have? Is it a CRT or an LCD Flat panel? How large is it?

    We're looking for your screen size, measured diagonally, of the viewable area.

    We need to know this in order to design future QRZ Page Layouts.

    Screen Size


    Might make sense to ask screen resolution that is normally used rather than size of the monitor....

    True, however, I find that a lot of people have no idea....

    My monitor is a Dell 24" FP running at 1920x1200

    LCD's everywhere. Lighter, easier, skinnier.

    For color corrected monitoring, I use a special monitor that is extremely well color corrected, but it's too expensive for consumer use.

    Asking this question based on the monitor size can only lead you to guess at what someone's screen resolution may be based on that size ... aren't you really interested in what the individual's screen resolution is? To wit: many 17-inch LCD monitors will have a native resolution of 1280 x 1024 ... but often users may be using them at 1024 x 768 or even lesser resolutions. A lot of 19-inch LCD monitors have the same native resolution as 17-inch but people will often run them at higher resolution since they are more "readable".

    Having been involved with a major web site migration in the last few months ... the most common screen resolution is 1024 x 768. That size (and larger) accounts for almost 75% of all browsers.

    But most people don't have their web browser windows full-screen ... something that needs to be considered when designing layouts. A safe width is probably in the mid 900 pixel range.

    Much of the info you've asked in the survey questions should be able to be gathered from your existing web servers - especially the browser and OS info.

    I use mixes

    regarding operating systems I use Vista Home Premium and XP Professional on one computer each.

    One has a 21" CRT running 1280x1024 pixels
    The laptop has a 17" flat screen running 1920x1200 pixels and another running 1024x768 pixels. I have another flat screen for 1440x900 pixels and a few BIG CRTs.
