?'s about your monitor

Just curious what size, and resolution your monitor is, and also, what settings you use with it, for viewing photos ?

The reason I ask, is that my monitor is a 23" Samsung, which is a 2560 x 1600 screen. < This is all good for showing lots of great detail... but the problem for me is, when visiting web pages, the text is usually very small.... So I often bump up my viewing of the web page to 150%, which makes it much easier to read text.

However, for the sharpest viewing of images, I have to shrink it back down to 100%.

Anyway, I size my images so that with my screen shrunk from 150% to 100%, they still fill the screen just about perfectly.

So just as an example, this is my normal posting size....

Is this okay for most peoples viewing ? Or too big (I'm thinking so, if you have a 1920 x 1080 screen, it might be too big, to view 1 to 1... without scrolling around, of course)

Is this size okay for most of you ?

Thank you,
