    Hi,

    I have heard that when gaming on LCD's at a close range. Individual pixels can be seen! Is this true?

    Thanks

    depends how big the screen is. I have a 26inch screen and can`t see individual pixels when upclose. But If i had a 40inch screen and sat right In front of it i would :D

    Well it's recommended to sit 2x the diagonal for HD material (next-gen consoles) and 3x for SD/ED material (current consoles, tv etc) but that should be fine.

    I wouldn't worry about it at all.

    You can see the pixels, especially on current gen stuff as 99% is 480i or 480p. But do you care?

    If you sit close to a CRT, you can see the scanlines! Oh TEH NOES!

    How obvious are the pixels, do you specifically have to stare to see them?

    Thanks
