60.00 Hz. It is the factory display on my Dell Latitude E6430 Laptop. The native resolution is 1600 x 900, but due to my poor eyesight, I use 1280 x 720.
Originally my main PC had a Dell display as well, a 1703FTP 17' inch. A 4:3 aspect ratio display (which you might've guessed from 17 inch screen) it supported up to 1280 x 1024 as its native resolution, and I used it to max this time around because I sat quite close to it. I used this one for quite the time, until eventually around last two years, the screen started to suffer from burn-in. It eventually got the point that just a still image would cause a burn-in if it sat on it for less than a minute. It got quite quirky with the contrast too, making the colors appear darker than they really were. As a pixel artist, this became rather troublesome since I couldn't determine the desired contrast. For example;
This is the intended contrast I had for the emojis that I was making:
That was how I was seeing them on my main display, but in reality, this was the end result that I saw on my Laptop:
75.000 Hz, lol. I use a Dell E1909W. The native resolution is 1440x900. I have the brightness set to 0 in the Intel control panel, while the actual monitor's brightness and contrast are set to 77. The panel type for it is TN. I really like the size of the monitor, and the colors seem pretty accurate. It doesn't bother my eyes at all, so I can use it for extended periods without hurting my eyes. Overall a decent monitor, despite the low resolution.
