Surely every LCD made is noninterlaced, and since the p stands for progressive scanning, I don't see why the signifier for QHD and WQHD should mean more than FHD (full HD/1080p) or just putting a p behind a number since it's not even an indicator of the whole resolution but rather only the amount of pixels on any given vertical line of pixels on the screen.

For all we know 3440x1440 is making a spectacular entrance into this thread biggrin.gif

My point was that 1440p (I've seen 1200p as well) aren't used in the industry, only by lazy people on the web. WQHD/QHD are specifically used in the industry and are therefore the correct terms to use. The 'P' is completely pointless in my opinion as well, regardless of resolution, but it's still used in industry for some resolutions.

3440 x 1440... Hmm... UWQHD? tongue.gif

Yes, because every screen these days is progressive scanning, so that makes every resolution in use, a P no matter how obscure. There's no reason to say he can say 1080p but not 1440p. 1080p could very well be 2560x1080 (even though we will all think 1920x1080 whenever someone says 1080p).

That's fair enough I suppose. But I still really dislike the 'p' suffix and don't want it spreading to monitors (too late - losing battle there wink.gif).

Higher resolutions packed into smaller physical space do look better, but in this case it's such a small size difference.

I would purchase the monitor according to your vision.
If you have good vision, buy the 24" and put it far back on your desk.
If you are near sighted, buy the 21" and put it an inch or two closer to you.

Thankfully you can't really go wrong with 1080p.
It's not as bad as 720p where buying a 720p results in anything between 1,024x768(Not even 16:9) and 1680x1050 (Not even 16:9).

Would be nice to see 1920x1080, 60Hz on the box somewhere when buying one. When I got my monitor that information wasn't on the box I had to have it looked up with the model number.
