This is a great utility. I have a 17inch monitor and with apple the resolution that I needed wasn't displayed. SwitchRes was a great fix have used it for years.

SwitchRes is a true LifeSaver! This little app. saved me from having to view the web in only 256 colors at 640x480 dpi on an old SONY Trinitron-Multiscan 17se. The monitor itself is capable of producing a nice image w/good colors, but I got it without its floppy disk of drivers! I thought it was useless...I had been stuck with an obsolete Trinitron no better than the 13" display that came with the old Mac IIse! And then I found SwitchRes!!! Thank-you I now see the world in high resolution, millions-of-colors images!
Truly a great little application that I can't imagine living without!
