How do people stand playing in anything less than a 16:10 aspect ratio?

I have both 16:10 and 16:9.


My only issue is 16:10 displays 720p & 1080p videos were black bars, and games that are 16:9 forced gets black bars too.
And currently since 16:10 aren't made anymore, 16:9 are superior compared to the last 16:10 monitors made.

One thing 16:10 does offer is that extra room vertically, does helps you see more.


for games you can use flawlessWidescreen program to get rid of blackbars, plus there are other ways to get rid of them

This is a guide to FOV in TF2 from a member of the competitive community. In TF2, 16:10 gives you ~5 less FOV than 16:9 when using FOV at 90. Nothing major at all, but still 16:9 is better. The most interesting part is that, based on the way Valve implemented FOV, using a triple monitor setup gives you a ridiculous amount of vision compared to a single monitor setup. It's worth a read, if you're interested.

Even though 16:9 is technically better for most gaming, I still like 16:10 for general browsing.

You do know 16:10 monitors are still being produced, right? 1920x1200 isn't so common anymore, but 2560x1600 is still popular.

I just saw one of the fabled 2560x1600 screens on newegg for a mere $550

specs were good (contrast, angle, brightness)
