Largest LED monitor with 1366x768 resolution

Postby TAViX » Fri Oct 05, 2012 9:46 am

Hi guys,
I just want to buy for my laptop the biggest LED LCD I can find with 1366x768 resolution, mainly for gaming.
Anyone knows if I can find something bigger than 19" ?

Thanks!

if it is for gaming, get a good HDTV, it won't matter if its 720p or 1080p, TVs have very good scaling, I'm supposing you have HDMI output on your laptop.

why does it have to be that resolution only? Can you not pick a monitor that supports 1080p and just set the resolution to the 768p?

Agreed. A TV with a 1366x768 resolution won't break the bank but a full HD one can be used with a BR player as well.

I have to repeat...
I don't want a TV they are to expensive, I need just a monitor with the smallest native resolution ever, but a little bigger than 19". There are a lot of 18.5 inchers out there with this res, but do you know a bigger one by any chance? I don't want to scale or anything I prefer native. Besides my laptop has 1920x1200 resolution, but cannot play games on that res; and has DVI out only.

Mebbe this thread will help:

http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/27113 ... resolution

I understand you want the monitor to have the same native resolution as the resolution that the gpu in your laptop is capable of gaming at properly. Even though you can set your res to 1920x1080 res, your gpu is too weak to game properly at that res, so you want to buy external monitor that has much lower native res - the problem is that all those models that use native res of 1366x768 are usually 19" or smaller monitors...

But fear not, monitors do scale fairly well these days, so if you buy say, a 22" or 24" ( I love my 24" , very immersive in gaming ) with 1920x1080 native ( and best ) resolution, then game on it at only 1366x768 it won't look THAT bad to be honest, sure it is downscaled of course, but it won't look HORRIBLE or anything.

Hi,

I just bought a new laptop that has 1366x768 screen resolution. I was going to buy a 22" lcd on sale along with it but the sales guy said that the picture would not look good and that I should get a 19" max size.

On the lap screen, it's kind of odd, very wide and narrow. I'm used to an old-fashioned 19" tv monitor-type screen.

What is the best type of lcd display for this resolution?

Could I get good res on a larger than 19" LCD?

I wanted a 22-24".

Thanks!


You can use any monitor. Just set the laptop to exclusively use the external monitor. However laptop graphics cards are much weaker then their desktop counterparts.

It won't look blurry at all. I hook up my laptop via hdmi to my big screen LCD all the time for watching netflix and movies. Running games outside the monitor's native resolution isn't the end of the world and doesn't look THAT BAD.


Word!

Some thoughts here:

If watching video such as movie, if the source was recorded at 1080p then of course adjust your monitor's resolution to 1080p ( monitors native resolution if you buy one larger than 20" )

For games just set the resolution to 1366x768 ( or 1280x720 - a "true" 16:9 HD resolution aka 720p ) depending on particular game and you are good to go.

What about a 1650x1050 resolution monitor? They come in nearly all sizes and are cheap.

TVs 32" and smaller can be found easily for less than 300, my brother got a led one for 250, it's only 720p but that is not a problem for you, it does not have a DVI input but has a VGA connector, anyway I still think that a tv might be a good choice
Recently there was a sale of a 24" 3d monitor from sony with a pair of glasses and a ps3 game, a coworker got it for 150, I think it now goes for 180 - 200 but discounted from over 400, so not bad, its 1080p though, i still think that scaling is a non issue having the same aspect ratio and with the scaling algorithms in current displays.

drop your settings to 1280 x 720? or something close enough to it so that the image blur is nonexistent?
