How far to tilt?
« on: May 21, 2010, 02:07:53 pm »
Since I am redoing my cab design so that it has a smaller foot print, I am left with wondering how much I should tilt my lcd screen? Does anyone have any recommendations? I was looking at somewhere close to 10 degrees, but am also considering going even less.

Depends on your LCD.  How far can it be tilted without affecting the view - angle quality?

IMO, it depends on your height, in relation to the placement of the monitor. Basically, it should be angled so it is pointing directly at your face.
