How do you adjust your monitor
this question is primarily addressing desktop monitors. how do you adjust yours re:comfort level? straight up and down, tilted slightly up or tilted slightly down. also do you change the angle from when you're surfing the net as apposed to gaming. slightly is the key word.
I have it perfectly vertical, and raised at the right height so I am looking dead center when I look straight.
I've got my eyes *just* above the top of my monitor. It actually feels like my eyes are quite a bit lower, the only reason I realized this is because I have a mirror behind my monitor that I can see my eyes in.
Monitor slightly tilted up, to get closer to perpendicular angle of vision to the center of the screen.
Some good links about ergonomics, including monitors:
US Department of Labour
ErgoCanada (I realize this site doesn't look great, but their info is good, and they're a Canadian company that I've had fantastic experiences with.)
A monitor is like hanging a picture. It should be placed at eye level, and not tilted.
Mine is wall mounted and the centre of the screen is positioned at eye level so I can keep my neck and shoulders upright and strait so that my posture doesn't get hunched up and make me look like a nerd.
