    What ARE they thinking? The resolution is appalling by todays standards. Yes, a 19" screen is a good size for the corporate cubicle, esp. if you will put two side by side. But HEY, with Win 7 scalable desktop there is NO EXCUSE not to up the resolution, increase pixel density, increase font DPI, and significantly improve text clarity.

    What a lost opportunity. They could have blown a trumpet all over corporateville with something a little better than what has existed in the market for umpteen years now.

    x1024 is useless for reading corporate PDFs.

    ONE PLUS POINT: There appear to be speakers in this thing. And hidden. Nice.

    Very innovative. It comes with a Tilt, Swivel & Pivot function so you wont have to strain your neck trying to make out the pixels.

    I'd buy a square TFT over a wide-screen anyday. I dont watch movies on a PC... got a big screen for that... but I read a lot of PDFs, and do a lot of Word and Excel work simultaneously, so TWO screens is the best set up for me. 2x 1600x1200 is managable. 2x 1920x1200 is too wide and requires an owl's head to swivel, and 2x 1680x1050 is just too low a resolution in the "y".

    In fact, what I would REALLY LIKE is 2x 1600x1600 screens. Unfortunately there ARENT any true square screens. The 1600 in the y would save me zooming and scrolling in word and PDF documents.

    Someone make me happy: make me a 1600x1600 screen. Two of 'em.
