Can anybody enlighten me as to why the industry went with a 16:10 aspect ratio for monitors? It would seem that 16:9 wouls have been the standard all along since that is what mosr HD wide screen viewing is. Does it have something to do with the resolutions found in games or was the aspect ratio what came first then the games to follow?

I'm pretty sure the 16:10 ratio was because of money. Somewhere in the production line it was cheaper to do it. Less isn't always cheaper.

I hope that their monitors are more reliable than their DVD drives. I had one for 6 months and it completely died.

Not the suggested 24" though. A bit excessive I think.
