I'm wrong. I just seen a Samsung 1080p monitor that's 22". I thought 1080p would start at 26" or more. I would be keen see what a desktop looks like at that res.


Well, my screen at home (Acer AL1732, "just" a 17") operates at 1280 x 1024, so that's more than 1080. My monitors at work operate (when in landscape) at 1600 x 1200. Both are "old fashioned" 4x3 ratio screens. At work I have those in 1200 x 1600, dual monitor, so my desktop is 2400 x 1600, which is pretty large.

I just checked mine and it's 160 horizontal and vertical, but I guess that's a the point at which you can't see the picture anymore, not the point where colours start to differ for each of the viewers eyes. I guess that'll mean I'll have to see a monitor in the flesh before purchasing.


I've seen too many promising monitors that could not fulfill their promise, that I never buy a monitor unseen.

My out sized 24" is 1920 X 1200. Too big for Full High Def too. J/K ;)

I was just wondering if that was the new standard? I don't plan on watching hd movies but it's hard finding a sub 200 monitor with a hdmi port on it that's not 1080p.

Oh I just looked up the other dimension on full high def it's 1920×1080. I guess I know why my monitor's width is 1920. And l know the answer too the question what is the 20 for. If I thought there was a good high definition movie worth watching, I'd go out and get one. But I can't think of one. Edit I guess that means I also don't have a 9:16 aspect but that's cool.

I have not that the smallest monitor that support 1080p are atleast 22" and the smaller that support 1200px are atleat 24" I trying to stay in that range. I am not buying in the huge lcd mob. I think even a projection unit might be nice

The DPI are similar to a 19" CRT @ 1152x864. It's comfy.
