You do realize watching movies is the least of the things that I do on my computer? Finding a nice, quality 16:10 monitor with that every precious amount of glorious vertical real-estate is harder and harder to come by these days. Running Inventor or Unigraphics with multiple toolbars enabled is almost unbearable on anything less than a 1920x1200 monitor.
Well obviously this monitor isn't for you then right?
Doesn't mean it shouldn't exist.

I was not happy with 16:9 finding its way into the computer technology industry because we were comfortable with 16:10.

I will be fine with 16:9 just to make everything uniform, makes things easier.

I am sure this ratio is specific to certain kinds of tasks though.

Interesting note: 16:9 is compatible with cinemascope.
Cinemascope is not compatible with 16:9.
Tis true, Cinemascope on a 16:9 display gives you bars top and bottom. This monitor would eliminate that.
