Almost there, BenQ!

Now please include 120Hz and DisplayPort. Then I'll be able to stomach the TN and gladly buy a 24" one...

Yeah but once you get use to 1920x1200, using 1920x1080 is a down grade IMO. Go ahead and change the resolution to 1920x1080 and see how much real estate you will lose from top to bottom. Now image if that's a real 24" screen what that means is that you will lose 3/4" from the top and 3/4" from the bottom. That's huge for a 24" screen. If they want to move over to 1080 resolution, why don't they just use a smaller screen thus a cost savings for the consumers.

Stupid bean counters thinking everything must be 1080 because that's what "HD" is. Morons!!

I propose we start using the term "HD+" to indicate 1200 res. That's like... woah... better than HD!!! The moron bean counters will wet themselves over it and want everything to be "HD+".

At the guys bashing the 1080 vs 1200 resolution:

Well guys, actually the joke is on you. Just put 2 monitors next, one 22" with 1920x1200 and one with 24" with 1920x1080 then fire up a game. Now compare who has the more viewing space...

I have a 24" @ 1920x1200. My wife's 28" is 1920x1200. Soooo... :shadedshu

Besides... what kind of argument logic is that? How about comparing two 22" or two 24" monitors.

22" is 1680x1050
23.6" is 1920x1080
24" is 1920x1200 only.


you cant really get a screen with the same physical dimensions, and different aspect ratios

I'm having a hard time deciphering what you are trying to say here... I read it several times. You can get those resolutions in tons of different sizes. Now if you were trying to imply that those resolutions are what you get at the closest comparison to a 1920x1200 24" monitor then I guess I kind of see where you are going. Still... if a manufacturer offers a ~24" monitor at 1920x1200 and ~24" at 1920x1080... which one would you rather view?

Basically, you have to up the size of a 1920x1080 monitor to get the same viewable area as a comparably sized 1920x1200 monitor. Hence you have to pit a 24" 1080 against a 22" 1200 to make it a fair "viewable area" argument... and in that argument the 1080 trumps itself by requiring larger screen dimension to compete.

if you look, you'll find not a single 24" screen with 1920x1080

as you look into the specs, you find out stores are misleading you on the size and they're smaller than their 16:10 counterparts

Now I can't figure out if you are debating with me or agreeing with me. You're tone suggests you are debating me and defending your 1080 monitor... but you're posting stuff that seems to agree with what I am saying.

Yes, you're right... 24" monitors @ 1080 res are actually smaller than 24". However, 1200 res models are for the most part a full 24".

Are you or are you not saying that 1920x1080 is better than 1920x1200 at advertised dimension?

no i was just stating that the screens are physically smaller.

It was said "if a manufacturer offers a ~24" monitor at 1920x1200 and ~24" at 1920x1080... which one would you rather view? "

its 23.6 vs 24 - i was mostly intending to clarify that.

LOL. I didn't meant the size of the screen! haha.

I was trying to explain that having a standard HD resolution offers you more viewing space on the left/right side of the screen. Just take 2 screenshots 1 at x1200 and 1 at x1080 and see the diference. ;)

And naturaly a 22" 1920x1080 monitor is smaller than a 22" 1920x1200. That's why I said a 22" and a 24" ... My bad.

i dont see how that gives you more side? the change is in vertical height... or do you mean its "wider" ?

Check the screens here, and why an 1920x1080 is better than a 1920x1200 monitor. :pimp:

1920x1080 :


1920x1200 :


So this is what I meant when said "extra viewing space"...
