My 5-years-old 17" CRT just gave up on me, so im planning to get a new 19" LCD.
Now im struggling to decide whether i want a good 19" or a widescreen 19", or more specifically, Viewsonic VX922 or VA1912W... (or similar priced models of other brands).
I'm wondering how would a normal 4:3 video looks on widescreen when it is made fullscreen (ie with WMP)? The image will be stretched horizontally or blank parts would appear on both the left right side? And how would it look if i choose to play my games in 800*600 or 1024*768?
I know specs cant tell much, but can someone give me a rough expectation on the image quality? Should i expect great difference between the two models?
VX922: 2ms response time, 650:1 contrast and 270cd/m2 brightness, 1280*1024
VA1919W: 8ms response time, 500:1 contracsr and 300cd/m2 brightness, 1440*900
Most of the time, i watch videos, surf internet or do my works (word, excel, autocad). I play games sometimes, not too frequent...
Or if anybody has one of these or even both(!), can you give me some comments? Any help is most appreciated
