Friends: I currently have a 36" CRT monitor for my computer with a rez. of 800 X 600. Yeh, I know, pretty lame. It's what's left of my old Gateway multi-media machine (one of the first ever). I want to replace it with a large (36" to 40") flat screen monitor to be viewed at a distance of about 8 to 9 feet. All I see advertised are large wide screen, 16:9 monitors for movie viewing. Don't I want a screen with computer monitor proportions? I may want to watch an occasional movie on it, but it will be 99.5% a computer monitor. Then there is the question of resolution. If I get a very high rez. screen, won't the text be too small to see at 8 or 9 ft? Thank you for your help.
