Dell's 22-inch S2209W monitor to reach Full HD resolution?

22-inch monitors have generally been stuck at a 1,680 x 1,050 resolution for years with just a few notable exceptions. Now it looks like Dell is about to change that with the introduction of a newly designed, S2209W monitor with rumored 1,920 x 1,080 pixel resolution.

i went for a 24" 1920 x 1200, i would have got a 22" but felt the resolution was too low.

this should be a nice monitor

i dont see how it matter , even with making the resolution fit , the size isnt big enough to enjoy it to its fullest , or even well . 24 was already borderline .

Of course it will sells like crazy , as the only full hd 22" lcd monitor .

You are not sitting less than 3 feet from your tv screen like a computer monitor. Artist and people who Profession Video editing can tell the difference and I bet a few Gamers and People who watch movies on their PC will and can tell the difference.

Wow, so much for engadget being a reliable news source. I have a nearly 10 year old 20/1'' monitor that is HD, what are they smoking?

And my current monitor is 1920x1200, which is more pixels than HD. As a matter of fact, i have an old NEC/Mitsubishi 19'' CRT that had a resolution of 2048x1200 with old GeForce 3 cards, thats way past 1080p too, and its about 15 years old.

someone please smack this engadget writer upside his head and tell him that PC displays have been HD for years.

all he is saying is that you can now get a higher resolution 22" screen, i don't know why you are making a big deal over it.

They are talking about LCD's mate.

We've all had CRT monitors that can handle resolutions above that, but most people use a LCD, and most of them have been sub full HD.
Getting a full HD LCD monitor at 22" is big news.

"22-inch monitors have generally been stuck at a 1,680 x 1,050 resolution for years with just a few notable exceptions. "

Key phrase being "a few notable exceptions."

There are 17" LCD displays in laptops that go up to 1920x1200.

i wonder if there is a standards board somewhere that decides 24" = 1920 x 1200 and 22" 1,680 x 1,050. if they can do higher resolution why dont they?

And @ 2 i have a 24" and i disagree at times it feels like i should be sitting further back rather than it being too small for the resolution. 22" would be fine imo.

If your use to pcgaming....then all you need is a good comp chair and have the monitor hook up just like youd be playing a pc game except instead your using a controller thats all....size isnt a big issue....actually smaller screens usually look better........

* o yea also Samsung has their True Color series for 24/26 inch monitors that have the full hd and hdmi,dvi,component etc etc ports....they are pretty hot lookn
