Well I jumped in. I got a 40" LCD monitor - from guess who?
Its rigged up and it runs Cubase fine
The resolution is HI Def, and at this size there is a slight compromise. Crystal accurate it is not, but useable it is.
With the project window maxed on the screen and when I am sitting very near (1.5 mtr), its good enough. I can see the text of the file menus and the track names just fine. I wear varifocal glasses and I must say that its much easier on the eyes than my old 19 inch 4/3 (non widescreen)
As for screen acreage, I am not used to the widescreen aspect. If I have part of the screen for the project and want ot have a vst and the mixer on screen, then there seems no easy compromise. Though the mixer is now resizable, you do start loosing feature visibility. VST are now ginormously large and are of course not resizable (well my ones are not).
Still I love it - so I am considering getting two now! One for the Project windows and one for al the VSTs
