What is pixel pitch?

  • Hello

    I have a 17 inch 1703FP with a Dimension 8300 Series.  I was looking to return the 17 inch monitor for the 19 inch and noticed that the contrast is the same (600:1), but the pixel pitch is .264 on the 17 inch and .294 on the 19 inch.  Does this matter for picture clarity?

    Thank you!

  • Here is a good definition of pixel pitch. Difference in clarity is fairly subjective, but considering that the maximum resolution of both displays is 1280x1024, you may notice the pixel spacing on the 19" display versus the 17" display, since you have already had experience with the smaller pitch on the 17" display.
  • Thank you, Cody.  Very helpful!
