sarcastic? From what I know, 16:9 is the designated industry format for widescreen computing and motion picture viewing.

Motion picture viewing, yes, but not the standard in widescreen computing. 16:10 is the standard there. 1280x800; 1440x900; 1680x1050; 1920x1200; and 2560x1600 have been the standards for a while, as far as computing is concerned.

dell ultrasharps (note: ULTRASHARP only) are arguably the best screens on the market.

16:9 is TV widescreen, 16:10 is PC widescreen. no idea why they dont match up, its always been that way (1920x1080 vs 1920x1200, for example)

the price is good, for what will be competing for the #1 20" widescreen.
