(Edit: sorry, in the poll title I forgot to write "Monitor". It's the Monitor size, not computer size.)

Only count the ones you use daily/regularly, not the ones you rarely use (such as on occasional travels).Multiple answer poll since some use more than 1 computers regularly.

(The purpose of the poll is to see personal preference, so don't count workplace computer monitors, since those are often employer's decisions.)

Thanks.

My everyday monitor is my 50" tv attached to my Home Theatre PC (HTPC), in the living room for streaming and recording over the air from the antenna. Also for browsing the web. I'm sitting in my lazy boy as I type.

My other computer in the home office has a 30" 2560x1600 high resolution monitor for work, photo editing and playing games.

4K is in my future but not for a while.

I am still using a CRT Hitachi SuperScan 812. It works well with Windows XP. Had I known I would be using it so long, I would have ordered the 814, which allowed higher scanning frequencies.

3 27" monitors on my Work / Play machine (@ 1080). Probably going to with an ultrawide or two, along with a 1440+ for my next set.

25" on both primary machines.
I'm using a 60" plasma TV in my conference room, and not too crazy about it.

I've used a 17" and 19" 5:4 screen for years because I preferred that squarish ratio. But I want a larger screen, which seems to be only available in wide screens. Since wide screens are only wider horizontally but actually narrower vertically comparing to the same sized 5:4 screens, I have to get at least 24" 16:9 to make it a real upgrade and not downgrade. I'm getting a 27" soon.

Just the standard Apple Thunderbolt 22" monitor attached to my 13" MacBook Air. The extra real estate is nice but I get by for weeks at a time while on vacation with just the laptop (I'm a software developer, mostly back end).
