Screen resolution for Samsung 22 inch monitor

  jezzabevan 20:44 03 Nov 2008

I have a Samsung 225BW wide screen monitor. I have had to reinstall windows ro a new hard disk and cannot get my monitor settings right. The recommended resolution for this monitor is 1680 x 1050, but I find this too small to read. The next largest size in same ratio (1:6) is 1280 x 800 but this is too large and the fonts all look blurred. Maybe I'm getting fussy about I am sure thant I am missing something.

1024 x 768 is what I use.

Interesting - I have the Samsung 2232BW and use 1680 x 1050 without any problems. My desktop font size is 96 dpi. Have you tried increasing it to 120 dpi?

Vista or XP?

Well the Samsung T220 22" TFT Monitor is 1680x1050.

I have increased the font and icon size on my Vista pc, even with my failing ageing eyes I manage quite well
