    In an effort to provide better ergonomics, I-O Data has developed a new monitor, a 19-inch model called LCD-AD191SE, which has a built-in function to reduce eye strain. That function works by lowering the intensity of the blue light (in five stages) by up to 60%. The display also has an 'Eco guard' that lowers brightness automatically when the user is not present.

    Spec wise, the LCD-AD191SE has an LED-backlit TFT panel with a native resolution of 1280 x 1024 pixels, a 5 ms response time, a 1,000:1 contrast ratio, D-Sub and DVI connectors, and two 1 W built-in speakers. I-O Data's monitor has a three-year warranty and is expected to ship at the end of this month.

    I think there is a place for 1280 x 1024, but it is small and could easily be filled with the landfills worth of HP 1940's that exists. New ones are acceptable, if they are retardedly cheap.

    For some reason I think this will not be that cheap.

    It is actually 5:4...
    But I would like them to start manufacturing 1600x1200 monitors again, they're such a great setup for PLP with a 2560x1600 in the middle or LLL with a 1920x1200 in the middle (cheaper alternative).
    The only 1600x1200 monitors you can still find are NEC and Eizo screens that still sell for € 700+ eventhough they're 5 year old models.

    4:3, 5:4 or square, who cares?.

    My point is, why are new models for these ratios being made?.

    What`s it to you? You a too big of a man that there`s no room for them too around, or what?


    And how hard is it to remember 1280x1024, virtually evereyone got this wrong a few years back, `old school 4:3 review test bench` ...*tests 1280x1024* ... *facepalm*

    Urza26 explained quite good. I would personally love 2 for a cheap 3 monitor setup. 2 squares on the side and the wide in the middle. To bad those are not having a slightly better resolution such as 1350x1080 or 1440x1080. It would have been a great setup.;)

    Because I'm a programmer and I'd rather light myself on fire than have to read thousands of lines of code on a 16:9 monitor.

    no but he has a point... code is 100x easier on a 3:4 4:5 monitor.

    my current setup is a 1080p in the center and to the left a 1024 3:4. main screen is for media and gaming and CAD but left screen is for text support.

    anytime im writing a paper, my source document goes on the left. coding review goes on the left monitor.... 3:4 is awesome for a support role

    Cool. Good to see some reasons as to why a company would still produce them. :)

    Ever thought on having the monitor in portrait mode?? My friend is a programmer too, and has one 22" 16:9 in portrait mode, and couldn't ask for more.

    You can't use Cleartype when you turn a monitor portrait - it doesnt work. Cleartype is designed to use the vertical RGB subpixels. Turn it sideways and those vertical subpixels go horizontal and Cleartype goes wacko.

    If you are doing lots of reading or coding, whether PDF or IDE, you need cleartype. Alternatively, ditch cleartype but get a UHD display. OH WHERE ARE THOSE UHD DISPLAYS???!!!
