Large Monitor/TV



Master of Mediocrity
My son purchased a high end Samsung 32 inch LED TV/Monitor - 1080p, 60Hz. When he hooked it up to his computer, the text looked coarse. The icons were not sharp and crisp.

Is this a video card issue?

What is the largest monitor out there that will provide a crisp, clean, bright image for use with a computer?

Thank you.


1080p = 1920 pixels wide x 1080 pixels high.

There are many laptops with screens as small as 15.6" with a native resolution of 1920 x 1080. (Slide the "Resolution" slider in the left column to the right so that it shows "1920 x 1080 - 1920 x 1200").

Samsung took that same 1920x1080 resolution and stretched it out to fill a 32" screen.

The only way that will look good is to back away from the screen a few feet ... which is not something you typically do when working on a computer.


Look for monitors with a resolution of 2560x1440 (usually a 27" diagonal)

or, even better, with a resolution of 2560x1600 (usually a 30" diagonal)


Still here!
It might be the same problem I had hooking up my PC to my 32" TV and using the HD lead between my graphics card and the TV. Removed the HD lead and used a good old monitor lead and now have a good picture and with the use of cordless keyboard/mouse so that I'm well away from the screen I get a great gaming experience as well as everyday computing.

If this has nothing to do with your problem, good luck with it!
