Dell 23" u2312 16:9 or 24" u2412 16:10...please help
Hello, I bought the Dell 2412, but I'm still in shock at the screen size (came from primarily laptop use). I primarily use the computer for work (internet, ms office, etc). I hear 16:10 is better for web viewing but have also heard kicked around that 16:9 is more natural to what humans see. The issues with this monitor are that I lean in to read text on the screen (looking way too close by OSHA standards) and even with the max height adjustments on monitor/desk/chair, I am only at eye level with 3/4th height of the monitor, not eye level with top/near top line as OSHA also says I should (OSHA Ergonomic Solutions: Computer Workstations eTool - Components - Monitors). So I'm thinking the Del 2312 with the 1" lower height and the 1080 resolution (vs 1200 on the 24") will be more comfortable to my viewing posture/reading. I realize I lose 1" of monitor and a little more screen space with the resolution but I'm slightly more concerned with height/readability since both these screens seem to fit a lot on the screen to me. Can anyone please help with advice? I'm agonizing over this too much and just have a couple more days left in my return policy.

I think you should just keep the 24", I honestly think you are concerning yourself way too much with OSHA. If you are needing to lean in a lot to read text, you probably need to increase the font size. Going to a 23" won't solve that.
