Why would you pay that amount for a 22" when you can get 24" inchers for the same or less?

Exactly, 24" for 350 or so. If it had 120 hz refresh....but still too high.

With a viewing angle of 176, this thing most likely has either an S-PVA or S-IPS panel. Far superior in image quality compared to a $400 24" monitor. $400 24" monitors use Tn Film panels, and look like shit.

True, but cmon, 90% of the ppl won't see the difference. And who wants 1680 when you can have 1920? Especially for professional needs. They should offer just a good priced 24".

I beg to differ about not seeing the difference. Judge both panel types side by side, and the difference is unmistakable.

For professional needs, the better panel is more important. Color accuracy is far more important then resolution for pro photographers and the like.

I didn't say we couldn't tell :) Joe blows would be hard pressed, I imagine (remember refresh rates and 720p/i vs 1080p/i). They crack me up, but of course, I guess this isn't aimed at them.

I sure as hell wouldn't want 1680 for pro needs, though. I haven't got an LCD precisely b/c I don't want 1680. I'm holding out for a nice 1920. Not that I do much photo or vid stuff, though (mostly just gaming and HD TV/Movie watching).

Guru: if you do movies and gaming, get a 1920x1080 screen not a 1920x1200. The little black bars on top and bottom of 1080P movies on 16:10 PC screens will probably annoy you.

Slightly more gaming real estate :) I have a 22" crt right now, so I'm used to big black bars lol.
If bleeding is a problem, then it would be annoying... you have a point, sir :)
