20" 1600 x 900 pixels

Shockingly bad resolution Teenage gamers and grandmas only.

But the price is amazing! $208 wow. I remember paying $1000 for my first Eizo TFT, 16" 1280x1024... which I still use! Superb IPS rather than the nasty TN that hit the market a year to two later.

The horizontal width should be 17.43" - in portrait it would match the vertical resolution of a 30".

Alas the physical height of the 30" is about 15.7" so it's not a very good match.

I think the 1600 x 1200 20.1" monitors matched physically, but they seem to have got very expensive. :( Perhaps an advertising campaign pushing some "cheap" screens for use alongside the 27" and 30" 2560 x xxxx screens would produce results - I'd take 2. :)
