Im fairly happy with my Sony X-Black flat panel .Its got 8ms response.I currently fly at 1024x768 having stepped back from the native res of 1280x1024 realising the massive advantage it gave you in viewing distant 'dots'.
Id be interested in you guys reccommended upgrades .I do lean towards another 17" as it fits neatly in a recess between 2 cd rack type towers on my pc desk.A 19" might fit at a squeeze but hardly a widescreen(spose I could just move my seat back!)
Also if running 1600x1080 etc is it EVEN harder to see the 'dots' of distant planes?Are the dots/pixels bigger on a 19" (seeing as its the same res 1280x1024?)
Particularly interested in items readily available in UK/Euro marketplace....Thanks as always.

I have a Samsung 204BW 20" Widescreen and run the game at 1680x1050. I have absolutely no problems seeing dots or IDing aircraft. I fly in FR servers with no icons such as Zeke vs Wildcat and Spit vs 109. I see them as good as I did if not better then when I ran the game at 1024x768. This is my experience over the 6 years Ive flown the sim. Others will be along to tell you different Im sure. All I can tell you is how the game looks for me.

S!
