This. Anything else is wrong.



Exactly. I could see the 16 to 9 thing since that's how ratios are supposed to be said, but aspect ratios for monitors are usually said with a "by" for simplicity so it matches resolutions. The point is, the TC had it all wrong.

I asked God for a bike, but I know God doesn't work that way. So I stole a bike and asked for forgiveness.

I already pointed out above that 4:3 is said FOUR THREE, that one is common usage I've never heard anyone say FOUR BY THREE

but for 16:9 or 16:10, always sixteen by nine or sixteen by ten, no "sixteen nine, sixteen to nine, etc..."


Why would the same person say "four three" and "sixteen by nine"? That doesn't make any sense.

'Come fight beside me,' I said to myself, and although it doesn't make sense, I held my own hand as a small sign of trust, and together I made my defense.

16:9 - Sixteen nine
1920x1080 - ten eighty (though I do sometimes say one-eighty like an idiot), though if it's different than 1920, I'll clarify it
1280x720 - seven twenty
780Ti - seven eighty tee-ai
2500k - two thousand five hundred kay

I've never said any of those outloud. So no pronounciation for me, I guess?
