For a fair old while I have been using a Samsung Syncmaster 193T at 1280x1024

I use Powerstrip to set vertical to 50Hz for smooth rendereing of scrolling text etc.

Based on comments elsewhere in this forum I note that not all the Samsung series or other similar type LCD monitors such as HP/Compaq seem able to be run as llow as 50hz but this one seems fine

I use the highest 4:3 square pixel resolution that can do 100 Hz. That happens to be 1152x864 on my displays (21" Diamond View and 19" LCD).

If ones monitor isn't capable of at least 1024x768 @ 100 Hz, a 50 Hz mode would prevent judder get on scrolling text, etc at non-50 Hz multiples although it can be hard on the eyes. I'd probably use the highest refresh rate that doesn't make your eyes bleed (my eyes hurt on anything < 85 Hz).

The presence factor is important to me, not a tiny rendering of DTV.

From my experience HDTV and proper connected SDTV looks remarkable in the lounge room on a good HD display. Even better upscaled DVD to either 720p or 1080i.

I use a Samsung 46" (116cm) HD RPTV widescreen via DVI from the HTPC. I use both 1080i and 720p upscaling in most respects.

I've just been sticking to 1280x960x85 cause I've been too lazy to change the res/refresh every time i open the program. Slightly off-topic though, is there any way to fix image tearing when outputting 23.976fps video to a TV? (I get it in both PAL and NTSC output modes)
