It does have to do with the actual length and height. Aspect ratios are determine by dividing the Width by the Height IE 1920/1080 = 16:9; 1920/1200 = 16:10

Also, the largest commerical monitors are in this order:
2560x1600 (16:10); 2560x1440 (16:9); 1920x1200 (16:10); 1920x1080 (16:9)
I commonly use both aspect ratios, the difference is negligible, however i do prefer 16:10 for gaming.

Then it was just a misunderstanding on my part, sorry

And please don't use more argumentum ad populum, the popularity of the product doesn't mean it's good, it just sells because it's half the price
Please stop using "Argumentum ad populum". Unecessarily "advanced" phrases are unprofessional, most users don't understand them, and a waste of space. Sure, the definition is implied, but stop being all hoity-toity.
And the monitors weren't half price before. They never really were. The 2x price 16:10 are special models, IIRC. There used to be similar prices across the board. People chose the more commonly known and refereed to 1920x1080 and 16:9 ratio. This caused 16:9 prices to go down, or 16:10 prices to go up, or both.

That's almost what he has stated in many other threads. "Don't get a 16-10 monitor, it's a waste of money, it's not even supported anymore so it's completely useless for whatever computer usage there is whatsoever" - or rather, the exact same argument with abit different wording. AFAIK not in this thread but in most other similar, longer, ones.
Can you give proof, please? I don't remember these posts.
However, 16:10 is, in fact, not always supported in games. at least not every resolution. Sure, you can do 16:9 res on a 16:10 display, but some monitors don't give you black bars; they stretch the image. Barely noticeable, but some of us see it, and are irritated by it. You see more games supporting 1920x1080, and it's better to be able to game at your monitors native resolution.

State a source hydros has cited with the exception of WSGF, which he didn't use correctly, he did something similar to "selective quoting", which completely nullifies his quoting a source

He is the person making the claim, he has to provide the proof. All the opposition has said is "give us proof, if you don't, we'll just be here thinking that 16:10 is just fine for everything, since that conforms to everything we have already observed".
I'll let Hydros do this.

1:

16:9 products aren't usually better than 16:10 products, only place where this actually applies is 120hz monitors. The rest, the top monitors are always 16:10

2: The amount of products made to a specific standard doesn't make that standard good. These two things are mostly unrelated
1. Based on....?
2. It makes the standard that is preferred by the consumer to be deemed as "better", as far as the consumer is concerned.


And two more things:
http://www.displaysearch.com/cps/rde...8_16by9_PR.asp

Just because there is currently a higher resolution 16:10, it doesn't make the claim the 16:9 provides higher resolution false. It's easier to increase the resolution on 16:9.

If it's negligible, why do you prefer 16:10?

Yes, I agree it's negligible.

We 16:9 users have plenty of great sources for our claims apart from the 16:10 users here. Still I have not seen one sourced argument from a 16:10 user here which is rather indrible.

No, that's not true. Ask any College writing professor. That's a professional report. It can be cited as factual statement.

@Kevlo
aspect ratio is just a ratio.

It's an article about a report.
"Source: DisplaySearch 16:9 Notebook PC and LCD Monitor Analysis Report"


I sent an email, because the link doesn't appear to work, and I'm having a hard time finding the report. But I will post here once I get it.

They are just part of the ratio. Where did 5:1 come from? How about 7:4? What does that question try to accomplish?
