She's actually 22!

Jessica Bowen, drummer of the band the summer set, and no I haven't heard a single one of their songs. I just like her ;p

A 720p movie will look fine on a 1440p display in most situations. I doubt most people sit 1ft away from their monitor.

Are there any 2560x1440 monitors with interpolation to get 120hz? I think that could be a viable option if true 120hz isn't practical right now.

Companies are always evaluating what the consumers want. People that read forums hardware forums like this are hardly a good sample to analyze that would the general population be willing to pay for.

There has to be some relationship between screen size / pixel density / R&D and Capital Investment requirements that is preventing companies from shooting out 23" - 55" hi dpi screens (> ~110dpi).

Producing an LCD display involves a lot of different manufacturing steps. The display manufacturers have a pretty strict R&D budget. Also, building a factory that will stamp out LCD arrays is a very capital (read $$$$) intensive activity.

So when we consider that the LCD display industry is driven primarily by HDTV production and most HDTV content is now broadcast in 720p or 1080p, I can't see why a lot of companies would want to invest money into R&D to generate TFT Arrays with greater pixel density than the current ~100dpi ceeling on 24" - 55" screens.

We can probably also partly blame Apple as the success of their ipads is currently sucking up all high dpi array production. From my understanding Sharp, LG, and Samsung can't put out enough of the iPad 3 screens.

TL;DR
1) Average consumer is happy (ignorance is bliss) with his current HD screens.
2) Generating high dpi screens cost a lot of money.
3) LDC screen companies do not believe that 24"-27" high dpi screens would be profitable.
4) Blame Apple (jk)

crowat imo it doesnt take much to make monitors. in my opinion rolleyes.gif its way more complex for intel and amd to make a cpus compared to make an lcd.


monitors can get bulky and i see shipping high. even then i dont really see why we're not at bezeless monitors at this point. we should be seeing at least prototype foldable bezelless monitors and hook it up the brick to different types and sizes of screen of choice. headscratch.gif

Actually, based on my limited understanding, the array build portion of the LCD panel manufacturing is quite similar to making semiconductor waffers. And that is just one of the 3 major steps in the LCD production. You still need to manufacture the cells and put the whole module together. I don't think that LCD manufacturing is in any way low cost industry. Most importantly it requires a significant capital investment. Each time you want to move up a generation (related the size of the mother glass and your ability to cut x screens out of it). With each generation you need to build new plants and invest into new technology.

As an example Sharp (one of the large manufacturers of LCD is in huge trouble due to misguided capital investments. They built a gen 11 plant but the market did not adopt LCDs >60".

Then there is all the other competition in the market. Samsung, LG, AU Opt have all invested billions of dollars in the past few years and are now trying to undercut each other.
