    this makes no sense… surely he would be closer, as 10pxl high text would be alot smaller it there where more pxls in the same size of screen because they would be smaller… he would need to sit closer.

    had the problem at work where the girls in the ccentre got flat screens so they moved them back and i had to go round turning the resolution down as it was all to small for them to read!!

    I usually get these, but I agree with you. It’s still funny, but the higher the resolution the closer you have to be to see and read everything. I do the same when our people in the office that say it’s too small. Change the resolution to make everything bigger, so they don’t have to be right up next to the screen.

    @bobro @BobbyPhoenix They’re talking about a TV, not a computer monitor…thus, he’s watching video, and wants to see the most detail, not read tiny text.

    @Doc The content is irrelevant, if you want to be able to discern all the pixels onscreen, then there’s a maximum distance you’ll have to stay within.
