Presently I have a 19 inch (4:3) monitor and am interested in going to a 22 inch widescreen (16:9/16:10) monitor. I do realise that any possible benefits depends on the use of the monitor. I just use it mainly for my music and scores and other general use.
I know some people use dual or triple monitors when working on their scores and tracks but my preference is to have just the single monitor.
I have heard that widescreen monitors do elongate the display and as such can cause distortion. Had anyone made the changeover and did it cause any problems or is it hardly noticeable. Also, it does seem that manufacturers are moving away from 14:3 and producing more widescreens.
I would appreciate any input.
