I still love my 1600x1200 4:3 Samsung 20" LCD for gaming.

I do not miss my 21" IBM 4:3 Monitor at all. My 22" WS is totally awesome at 1680x1050. Time to move to newer 1920x1080 soon :slight_smile:

Well lets hope they start making more models with real 8-bit true color panels and none of these BS cheap 6-bit per component TN panels that fake true color by using dithering techniques. Which ones do that ? Pretty much every 22" LCD panel on the market (under $500 anyway…) and some 20" and 24" panels.

That’s one of the reasons why I like my Samsung 204B so much. It’s true colour - 16.7 Million.

16:10 was chosen so that you can show two A4 portrait pages side by side for desktop publishing. 16:9 won’t allow that. Still, it was a silly reason to start 16:10 in the first place, and should have just stuck with 16:9. Trying to play my xbox 360 on a 16:10 is a pain as its slightly stretched, since Microsoft won’t make a driver for 16:10 aspect ratio.

“real 8-bit true color panels and none of these BS cheap 6-bit per component TN panels”

How do you tell/know what you’ve got?
