    Funny as I see most high end android tablets running 16:9 as it is a better resolution for media consumption for most people. Given that your field of vision is closer to 16:9/10 than 4:3. Hence the reason for it and all.

    16:9 format distorts alot, plus movies that have blackbars still do in the wide screen tvs anyway

    i love how this news post was about the standardizing of an HD resolution to johnny normal, and it turned into a bunch of TPU high rollers talking about 4kx4k screen resolutions because they saw the chance to throw around that they have $$.

    good game TPU [H]

    And I thought 1080p looked like crap. I really need to get 2560x1440+

    My desktop is 1920x1200
    Laptop 1600x900

    Using 1366x768 makes me want to puke.

    Everything is so big reminds me of using a mac.

    I also find it sad that apple had to push high res in the ipad 3 for the retarded panel makers to wake up.

    16:10 FTW!

    This is because major laptops have shoved this resolution down the throats of "value" laptop consumers pure and simple.

    What I wouldn't do for an affordable 1920x1200 monitor. 1080p = blergh.

    I use that method as well as normal icons.

    I find that, by far, the most cockyness on tpu comes from people who have higher than 1920x1080 screens... like that catleap thread... dickfest much? :shadedshu

    Get over yourselves, so you have money, congrats. I have a happy life, which is better than any amount of money...

    So, most cockyness begins at a res thats a notch higher than yours? Interesting, and convenient...

    Well, I never heard of catleap before someone mentioned it earlier in this thread and since they used it in conjunction with the word cheap and you used it to describe an item that entitles you to bragging rights, Im confused! Intrigued, I just searched for it. Its a 300 quid POS....

    You should probably rethink what constitutes having money.

    Great attitude! (*soft voice* that bold statement somehow carries less impact when used in a posting where you show an exorbitant amount of interest in others possessions *end of soft voice*)


    And to "contribute" further to this thread in a more appropriate and internet friendly fashion -
    gay res is gay :toast:

    Why do you care what other people are bragging about??

    It comes off as insecure and jealous.

    As you said you are happy with your life so just worry about you who cares what other people do.

    I thought the whole point to the Catleap thread was for people to get a sweet display for cheap...Retail for over$800+ and can be had for around $340 is good deal in my book.

    Um...a Mac 15 years ago? This comment makes no sense.

    Your whole post came off as rude and cocky but this statement above also shows you don't know what the hell you are talking about in the slightest. You admit that you never heard of it but then assume it's a "POS" based on the price alone. Brilliant job.

    Why would you assume its based on price alone? Kindly dont quote out of context ;p

    As I said, never heard of um and went to look up this thing that one calls cheap and another thinks costs a lot/ brings bragging rights. The information out there is that the panels used in said monitors dont pass the QA of other major brands and this company scoops them up, down grades the rating and sells them nice and cheap. POS might have been a little harsh - but the sentiment stands.

    EDIT: 1 more thing, I find people who misquote and make assumptions to be cocky and rude XD Dont worry about it though, eh? ;)

    Go read the thread, hell, even just the first post. Thats the whole point of the popularity of those displays right now. Can save big bucks on pretty high-end 2560x1440 27" (direct from Korea).

    Cool story bro. Your comment involves no facts, information, or insight, just trolling. you are one of the cocks. Feel good? Of course you do, listen to your super cool attitude. Man, wish i was as cool as you.

    Its just that people ridiculing others because they do not have as large a reso as them does this great site no good, it seems like people like swirl are here repel people away from here, I dont think that is a good thing for the site. there was a guy in the catleap thread who ridiculed me for having a big screen but 'only' 1920x1080, and without even knowing the brand or specs of my screen, started going on about how much greater his screen is than mine.. i mean, c'mon?

    First line.

    Second line.

    Ok, look, Im relatively new around here, peoples names dont mean much(/anything) to me. Its only dawning on me how much on the younger side you are so not much point carrying on this path.

    The only reason Im making this post is to express in a different manner my point. That being you really shouldnt be worrying about what others have or do with it. You do come across a little overly touchy, even taking into account your age. I dont know if that guy was ridiculing you over your current display, but if he was, then hes the idiot and best not concern yourself with that or then make sweeping accusations that anyone above 1080p is somehow in the same boat. It really doesnt make sense! And it would be an idea to maybe briefly look at previous postings before making such a claim on a person (ie me), my first post on this very thread was actually in full support of someone using a lower (or frankly - whatever) res they are happy with. So Im not trying to scare anyone anyway, ok?

    @Wrigley
    I dont need or want further education on that monitor. I do understand its popularity - Its a 27inch display for peanuts, there's not that many dots to join ;) But when something seems a little too good to be true, it very likely is. There is a reason for its price, you dont get a warranty, you dont get QA, the lack of connectivity or any frills really, poor stand (thats actually come up several times - wobbly stand. Just what you want on your new big monitor huh!), depending on your country an anal assault from customs, and seemly a better than 1 in 10 chance that your display will arrive either dead or with dead pixels.

    Any one of those points *on their own* is an absolute deal breaker for me! So, I do get it, but its a giant PASS from me.

    Actually i was having problems finding 19 incher with 5:4 ratio like 3-4 years ago. These days its nearly imposible to get one. I have it plugged to DVI since day 1 (from 3-4 years ago).
    VGA mostly exists in order to connect laptops without HDMI to LCD TV's.

    no it doesnt. I agree with him. Threads like this become ruined. Its just news but it also happens when people need help. one person answers the question and the other 26 replies are people arguing about how much better their stuff is. Iv seen this get increasingly worse over the past several years. the only person i see fixing it is erocker but even he cant handle all the douchbags. Its people like that that make me sick. TPU never used to be like that. none of you are better than 14yr/o COD players. they just have their own CC instead of using mommys.

    You should try doing what I do just skip over those post.
