Well a discussion came up about height that scanlations should be. It really doesn't matter to me but I wanna see what you guys think. One that wins is what height I'll release from now on in NCIS.

most ppl's res are around the 1200-1300 mark with their WS monitors and anything larger than that it a waste of space... just like x
1200-1300 at max.
I don't really mind, since I set my width to 800px.
I don't mind either, as long as the bubbles don't get small and eventually cause the text size to be reduced from what it should actually be.
There is always a drop in quality when you go down to 1200px i'm for around 1300-1400px. It's not too big and the detail still remains.
I like bigger pages. Plus, the further time passes, the bigger things will be.
How many groups do you see resizing mangas to 800px? or 1,000px? Almost none, because we've evolved from that. Heck, the groups scanning at 1,100px are very few.
If you downloaded every seinen/shounen/josei/shoujo/hentai from mangaupdates (11611 series) and all of them had 5 volumes at 50mb it would be almost 3tb.

I go for 1100px.
It's usually dependent on what raws I get:
800-900 = LQ raws
1200 = resized HQ/MQ raws
1500 = very large HQ raws
I like larger images mostly because my vision's horrible and it's easier for me to work with larger images.
1200 here too
1600, screens and HD's are getting bigger, and there is more details for colourist such as me
1400 and unless you have a super huge screen (in which case the money could have probably been used on something cooler like actual manga) that's enough.
1300-1400 px is the best, but i could also read 1600 or more ... but then the file size is to big ... i prefer 1400 but 1200 is also okay if i can read the small text
