2400 x 1600

At work I’ve got a pair of Samsung 21″ LCD panels. Since each display is 1600 x 1200 pixels, the traditional landscape orientation gives me a virtual 3200 x 1200 display.

This past Monday, I decided to try pivoting them. I’m surprised at how much better this is.

I no longer have to turn my head side-to-side to see the whole display. Also, the 33% taller display means I scroll less. I never really thought about it before, but vertical scroll bars are a lot more common than horizontal scroll bars. Most apps work better in portrait mode.

The only exception I can think of is DVD video.
