standard screen1 Posted by: from: on Although this monitor touts a wide screen size, i could not get the display to show the wide screen display. 2 inches off the display on the right were cut off. My IT person couldn't get it to work as well. High definition display is not an option - only standard output is available on this. i apologize for the lack of technical-ese.
