I am interested in people's opinions about how three things: 1) How small do you think the current crop of Full HD (1920x1080) or WUXGA (1920x1200) screens will go in laptops (currently @ ~15 inches IIRC) and LCD/LED monitors (currently >20 inches IIRC).
2) How far do you think larger standards like WQXGA (2560x1600) or the proposed "Quad HD" (3840x2160 @ 16:9) expected to launch 2010, or the even larger "SHV" (7680 × 4320 @ 16:9) currently in development will go into the mainstream? Will the availability of 2160p and 4320p video be a factor or will people mainly watch them "downscaled" to fit on existing screens?
3) If yes to (2) do you think this will have the effect of increasing the use of dual/multi-screen set-ups with lower res screens used for browsing and office functions, and the big screens being mainly for AV work/playback?
I think I'm a 'typical user' of monitors. What I want is a monitor without 'dead pixels', which has a crystal clear image, can be viewed at reasonable angles and has a reasonable cost. (Cheap in other words). Size only comes in to the equation as to what you personally require. Hope that helps.
lotvic, paracetamol and a lie down in a very dark room should alleviate the headache... 8-|
