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.
