Why do so many people have a thing against 1080p??? - Page 3

post #21 of 86
I use 1080p because the standard for movies is 16:9. The empty space that shows up on 16:10 monitors annoys me. I also just prefer a wider than tall screen. That's probably why I'm going to do Eyefinity soon.

On a side note, you can run a duplicate display with a TV better on a 16:9 monitor--you won't have to distort your monitor's image.

And I definitely think the resolution needs to go beyond 1080p for monitors above 22". I feel like I'm using a TV, otherwise. 2560x1440 on 27" is beautiful.

You have to consider that De-Zant uses CRTs, and uses resolutions greater than their aperture grille's resolving ability. This gives games "natural AA", without a performance hit.

If I had to make a rough estimate, I'd say that 0xAA on that screen is about equal to 4xAA on yours, and 2xAA is similar to an LCD's 8x.

Hardly. More like 2xAA. It'd be between 4 and 8 on my P1220 though.

You also have to consider I despise AA on LCDs too. I never used it on any display in anything but very very cartoonish games. It's not just because of my CRTs. I hate the concept of AA most of the time.

I personally believe that because of the technical complacency of the general population the visual appeals/low production cost of 16:9 ratio technology generally creates a stalling point for manufacturers to move forward with mass production of newer models so they can make more money.

So while the general population enjoys 1080P/16:9 Aspect ratio we won't see a new technological leap in visual technology until it gets so common place that a new marketing strategy to refresh the entertainment business is needed to bring more revenue. cheers.gif

There's no point in complaining about 1080p stalling the industry. There are much better things out there. But they just cost much more. They are still affordable though. Not just worth it for most.

I have both 1080p and 1200p. 1200p is 10000000000x better all the way.

There's nothing wrong with 1080p, but it's always hard to go back to smaller resolutions. You'd probably look down on a 1280x1024 monitor just the same way someone with a 2560x1600 might look down on a 1080p monitor. That's just progress. In 20 years we'd laugh that we considered any of these options "good enough".

You're correct though you don't have to conform to what other people do, or spend money the way other people do. The important thing is to enjoy your system no matter what and make the right decision for you.

A good 1080p would win over a bad 1200p in image quality any day.
