Ah, now we got somewhere. This is somewhat true, however, the displays that use these aspect ratios in the consumer market end at some specific resolutions, the highest of which belongs to the ratio of 16:10, something which you can't deny.

Annoyingly that is right. But Hydros, put it this way.

This resolution is 16:9 and is 1920 by XXXX
This resolution is 16:10 and is 1920 by XXXX

Which one is higher?

Come on Hydros, God of the aspect ratios, answer this question.

The false statement is that "16:10 has higher resolution than 16:9".

An aspect ratio cant have higher resolution than another aspect ratio.
1920 / 1200 = 1.6 = 16:10

1920 / 1080 = 1.778 = 16:9

Given the same diagonal length and one equivalent side (1920), the 16:9 will have less length on the other side than 16:10 for resolution.

Basic geometry.

Now for actual size of the monitor, 16:9 monitors will be wider but shorter than 16:10 monitors given the same diagonal legnth.

Why should I? it is rare true statement from 16:10 users.

That has to do with pixel pitch (size of the pixels) not resolution. 1920x1080 on 16:9 a 42'' monitor is going to have much larger and more visible pixels than a 19'' 16:9 monitor. It's the pixel pitch that makes the "retina" display so special. The 19'' monitor will have a much sharper image when viewing from the same distance.

Because you are the one with all the sources, Maybe you should add the fact that 16:10 has the higher resolutions when you post in the threads with people asking which monitor they should get.

@Riou
Think again, read the definition again.

You are wrong. Just as I have said. It has nothing to do with actual length.

I know. I should have put a /off-topic after it.
