    actually, i think it is a matter of what size your tablet is. if you have a smaller tablet, you won't be able to get as nitty-gritty with things on a higher resolution than if you were on like... 1024*768. at least, that is what i have found to be true

    I work in 1920x1200 on one 23' screen and 1600 x 1200 on the second 20'. Both LCD's. Working lower than that drives me nuts.

    1280*1024 here, on a 17" lcd. It's small, but I don't have the money to get a bigger screen
    1280 is the minimum where I can work with painter...

    1024x768 here, mainly because i can't stand the flickering. if it flickers i feel the need to swat at it, like a moth or something. a big moth.

    i'll be getting an lcd screen soon, so i hope that solves the flickering annoying makes me want to stab feeling i get sometimes.

    No flicker on a lcd, but no black too

    And you got to take down the luminosity if you don't want to have a sunburn (well, neon don't sunburn. So?)

    1600x1200 - less feels crippling.

    Thanks for your replies.

    I've been using a lower res, but I find that I have trouble fitting my work, and all the palettes and toolboxs that I want on screen at the same time!

    Looking for a happy medium!

    1152x864 @ 75hz ,32bit on Phillips 107T (17") monitor.
    Cause I just use photoshop.

    Darn, I just found out that tweaking the res & refresh rate has twisted my Monitor callibration.-_-
    Now I'm going to have to do it all over again.
