In addition to the Screen Resolution statistics, provide statistics on the value of devicePixelRatio, giving an indication of how "sharp" the visitors' displays are. This applies in particular to Retina / high DPI / smartphone displays. Using these stats, one can assess how rewarding it would be to provide high resolution images.

As the value of devicePixelRatio is an arbitrary decimal, maybe use ranges, e.g. 1<x<=1.5, 1.5<x<=2, 2<x<=3, 3<x<=4, , and so on. The current Page zoom also influences the devicePixelRatio, but this means that the user would like to see more or less detail, so it's actually nice to include that.

My "Device Pixel Ratio" plugin has hit the marketplace, so this problem is solved.
