Pretty much a mix of all three. You can tell when I'm on the phone because I usually dictate to that and it sometimes gets garbled.

Woah, the forum software posts the thread before one finishes the poll? Learn something new everyday. Is that a setting that can be changed?

Fairly even split between PC and phone.

Didn't know how to vote.

I usually use my PC, but will sometimes resort to my phone if I'm not at home.

Usually from my desktop or laptop at home, but also from my tablet at work. Don't own a smartphone.

I wouldn't dream of spending all my internet time on a smartphone when I have a 17" LCD to use at home, or even an 8" screen on my tablet (which I don't particularly care to use if I don't absolutely have to).

Pretty much always use my phone or tablet. I probably use my phone more. Maybe like 70% phone, 30% tablet.

PC for me since I visit the site while at work. Occasionally on my phone at home but not often.

Iím actually a bit surprised at how many are saying they use a PC or laptop for browsing. I havenít had a laptop in quite a while but am thinking of getting one again. I almost only use a smartphone or tablet for any browsing now though and have done so for quite a while.

Twikoff — A mix of all of the above. Just depends what else I am doing.

I prefer a PC for any “in depth” discussion threads that may need lots of quoting.

Re: When on DVDtalk, are you using a PC, tablet, or phone?

I have a smartphone and multiple tablets, but strongly prefer my laptop for browsing forums and doing just about anything that requires typing more than a few words.

In general, I don't care for the small screen of a phone unless I have no other option and the ergonomics of typing on a tablet are not for me. My laptop is very compact and light and generally more functional than a tablet in every way.

Yep, itís kind of an inside joke to get in fast enough to mock the OP for not including a poll.

I used to use my laptop for most of my reading and posting, but since the upgrade killed IE I mostly use my tablet, which is fine unless I want to type a lot, post links and pics, and stuff like that. So now I generally avoid those things and just lurk.

Re: When on DVDtalk, are you using a PC, tablet, or phone?

Trevor, where's the *Always* on a PC option?

I'm 100% desktop/laptop.

The only tablet I own is a Fire and it's pretty worthless for internet browsing (I tried a while and gave up). I had an iPad for work at one time and it, too, was pretty bad at browsing.

My phone does not do browsing as it's a land line. Yes... a land line. I do not own a cell phone. Even if I had one I'd not browse the internet on it as I'd expect it to be similar to using a tablet and I absolutely do not like that experience.
