does it really matter though? 16:10 or 16:9 i don't really care so long as the resolution is STANDARDISED
The letterbox is usually because of the 2.39 aspect ratio used by most cinema while most HDTVs use a 1.85 aspect ratio. But also you will get an anamorphic DVD which is 2.35.

So that the average consumer doesn't realize that monitors and TV screens are slowly becoming the same thing (albeit different sizes) and hopefully people will make two purchases in the future - a 1920x1200 and a 1080p. When they could really just have one.

I'll start. Down with 16:10! Not that I own a widescreen monitor or anything... my monitor doesn't even do anything bigger than 1280x1024. Ha.

As for documents... I prefer my 1920x1200 to my old 1600x1200 or 1280x1024 by far. For word documents, it stretches out more, for more 'static' documents (ones that don't stretch) you can stack a couple on the screen or set it in pages.
yup my monitor displays my ps3 just fine without any letter boxing at any resolution.

And while some do, I would argue that the need to change the resolution to one that does not have any inherent benefit is inefficient. Furthermore, almost all TV shows these days come in 720p which will letterbox on the conventional wide screen.

Having owned a 16:9 display, I don't think I could ever watch a TV show on any other monitor, but the choice in the market is very disappointing. I must say however that the BenQ I currently have is exquisite (do not get the 24", it's bad).

16:10 may offer 120 more pixels in the vertical direction, but according to me, ultimately if you wanted to view documents and the like, a 4:3 screen is much more preferable.

What do you think?
I hate 16:9! If you want to watch movies? Buy a 16:9 and X-Box?

I only like widescreen for games and movies. Think about it: how much up and down do you need to see in a game compared to side to side? When I'm doing work, I appreciate that additional vertical space.

I turn my 16:10 26" on it's side to play games. And play them at 1200x1920. It's awesome. I can see above me sooo well.

....Honestly, I don't really care either way.
My pc is in my bedroom, the T.V. is in the living room.

I seriously can't comprehend how some people get so emotionally attached to pointless crap like this.

lol, I second that. . Correct me if im wrong but these ratios are both close to the human eye aspect ratio. that's the reason they are the ratios they are. I think 16:10 is actually closer but could be wrong.
