Am thinking of changing my monitor, is it best to go for widescreen or standard format hope it will be 19 or 21 inch

I prefer my "standard format" 19 inch TFT but the widescreen is useful if you either watch films on it or open two documents side by side.

A 19" standard monitor has about 10% more screen area than a 19" widescreen.

I would go for the standard screen unless you watch lots of films. 19" standard would be excellent.

A 19" widescreen will only give the same picture/text height as an approximately 17" standard screen. To get the same picture height widescreen as a 19" standard screen you would need to go to about a 22" widescreen.

I have a wide screen but I shrink it when viewing OE, IE and Outlook which then enables me to see and use my important Icon links which I have aligned to each side of the widescreen
