    What's so good about it? I can get the same thing with a little less good graphics for cheaper. Almost $100 cheaper...:roll:

    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.
