I assure you any $200 1920x1200 monitor is likely low quality. They are probably TN. One of the cheapest IPS ones I can think of is ~$400, and it's the new Dell u2412m, and that's a 6-bit IPS. The proper 8-bit IPS (u2410) is $500. So, it's about more than the pixels. It's about quality, and also about being high end.

well going from 1920x1080 to 2560x1600 is almost double the pixels

1920x1080 = 2,073,600 pixels

1920x1200 = 2,304,000 pixels

2560x1600 = 4,096,000 pixels

So you are adding double the pixels and using a much better panel

That just furthers my opinion that there's a gap that was ignored, and it's leaving many who are after that mid-high end sweet spot with far less options.

You do pay for what you get though, I love my U2711, it's the best PC related thing I ever purchased, and well worth what I paid.

Have to agree with you, the U2711 made everything "come alive".

Why aren't there more/better/cheaper 1440p/1600p panels?

For the same reason that there are now more 1080p panels than 1200p:

Because that's what is currently supported.

Movies, games, consoles, all output at either 720p or 1080p.

When there is something besides PC games that supports 1440p or greater, mass-producing it will be sound.

That's not true.

Most consumers think that 27" is "too big".

As such, making it a luxury item only makes sense.

There were a few 27.5" (marketed as 28") 1080p TN monitors that cost less than a 2407WFP a couple years ago, but they didn't do very well.

The one thing I don't understand is - almost all IPS/PVA panels are identical. A 3007WFP-HC will not be noticeably inferior to a U3011...

But for some reason, people prefer to buy a U2711 for MORE MONEY than a 3007WFP-HC, which you can find for as low as 700$ or even 500$ if you're lucky.

maybe some people just want something new with a warranty?

Also, almost IPS panels are identical? pretty sure my U3011 stomps all over my U2311H

I would like a 1440p monitor too play battlefield on.

But, my 22" 1080p monitor cost me $220nzd, then I look at 27" and I can get the exact same moniitor except with a webcam built into the top (same model number except size) for around 700nzd. Thats more then three times the price, for the exact same monitor except 5" bigger. Still 1080p.

Then I look at dell 1440p, and Im looking at $1150 for one. Thats more then 5x the price of my 22"

Thats probably why theres no market for them. Here, even a TN 27" monitor costs more than three times the price of the exact same monitor in 22" then the IPS and 1440p bring the price up even more.

I could buy two more of my current monitors for $450 and run 3 monitors for much much cheaper.

the display market feels like politics. they decide what's good for us.

imo there's no real reason why there are no 2560x1600 TN panels. who ever makes them would make a killing coz 1600p IPS are over priced.

lets not forget in the very near future there's gonna be 2560x1600 10" tablets. how is tablet technology is moving faster?

Things aren't truly made to just "support" 720p or 1080p, as they are merely resolutions. The standard is 16:9, and 1440p follows that, only it's a higher resolution so will be the same but superior by having more detail.
