I've been using an old monitor the last few days, it's square 1280x1024 resolution. It's pretty nice. Today I went back to a widescreen 16:9 monitor and I didn't like it. Too wide.

For web browsing and such, absolutely. I've got a 5:4 monitor, same as you, at home and I love the thing. At work I have my 16:9 rotated to 9:16 and it's even better. Used to have one in portrait at home before the 5:4 but brother borrowed it a couple years ago and still uses it (as a second now), not that I have space for it now anyway.

I would like 16:10 more if games wouldn't f***ing letterbox at 16:10 resolution.

I use photoshop and stuff, so the extra monitor width is a big benefit.
If my desk was big enough,I'd totally dual monitor it up.

I want a 180 degree monitor that cups over my face from one ear to the other but with like 3 feet of space. Like them formula 1 simulators but just the screen.

But if your gaming at 4:3 then some of the image is getting cut off unless you are playing an older game made for the 4:3 ratio
