Did you first have a CRT monitor or an LCD? Was it a desktop monitor or a laptop screen? What resolution was it? Aspect ratio? What do you have now?

Don't remember the brand at all, but it was a CRT screen that served for good few years before we changed it for something a bit better - it wasn't anywhere near "top" or even "middle ground" even then. Max resolution was probably 640x480 so 4:3 aspect ratio, but I am not exactly sure if it was max for the monitor or the PC config (it was bought second hand and I had no idea about how it all works back then)

At some point we got something better and bought different (used obviously) PC and 800x600 become standard before going into "glorious" 1024x768.

I'm currently gaming on a 1080p display that could desperately use an upgrade. But my first monitor? I don't even remember the brand. It would have been a pretty bargain basement CRT of some kind though.

My first monitor was a Samsung 24'' 1080p monitor back when Samsung was godly. Now I'm rocking an Aorus 27'' 1440p 144Hz monitor.

Just to note that 2560x1080 is also Ultrawide ;)

The only thing I remember about my first monitor is that it was 14" SVGA (1024x768) and the model was 'Provista'. Cant even remember the manufacturer. :D

Definitely some kind of CRT hard to remember Pentium and IBM computer days running NT and 95. I recall when someone had LCD monitor larger then 17’ it was very posh!

HP Widescreen Trinitron CRT (aka Sony GDM-FW900)

Bought it used for cheap, lasted only 1 year but oh what a year it was!
Nothing (and I mean nothing) non-CRT today comes even close to the color saturation/blacks that CRT produced (except maybe ultra-high cost monitors?)
