He's saying that aspect ratios don't deal with actual length and height of the resolution, which is does because 16:10 and 16:9 are the ratio of pixels in a resolution. Therefore one aspect ratio will always have more or less pixels than another.

That's what I've been trying to get him to answer.

That still doesn't explain where the numbers in aspect ratios come from and it's not you answering the question.

Seriously. That you dont understand aspect ratio is your problem, not mine. I dont have time to educate you more. I have helped you alot allready.

Ummm.

example 16:9 display: 1920x1080
example 16:10 display: 1600x1000

In this case, 16:9 is the higher resolution. I can still, factually state the the ratio doesn't DEFINE more or less pixels. It defines the RATIO.

example 16:9 display: 1600x900
example 16:10 display: 1920x1200

Opps, I did it again.

Here ya go, bro: http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/ratio

An aspect ratio will never have higher resolution than another aspect ratio.

Aspect ratio isnt about that.

It is just a ratio.

Also, at the time of the DisplaySearch article, it may be possible that the largest available, at the time, monitor was a 16:9 ratio. I don't wanna dig that deep, but it's something to think about.

Hydros refuses to accept that 1920x1080 monitor has less pixels than a 1920x1200 monitor.

Lol, this is ridicolous. biggrin.gif

How difficult can it be to understand that aspect ratio is one thing and resolution another.

resolution =/ aspect ratio

Seriously! How difficult can it be?
