Hi,

I was thinking about purchasing a new LCD monitor to replace my old
faithful Sony 400PS which has been running like a dream for over 4
years. So far my research has led me to believe that all LCD monitors
are manufactured for blind people.

Currently I'm running my 19" Sony @ 1600x1200. If I buy the equivalent
sized LCD screen I'm limited to 1280x1024. I'd have to buy a 20" LCD
to run @ 1600x1200 which would make the contents of the screen too
large in my opinion.

Are the any manufacturers that make high resulution LCD displays?

Thanks in advance!

John Park

Yes, but refresh rates are low and prices are high. Check IBM and
Viewsonic.

If you want 1600x1200 native resolution, the top eight listed models may fit
your requirements.

http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduct.asp?DEPA=1&submit...

Your best bet is to go to a brick and mortar store and have a look at
several models. Specs don't tell the whole story about monitors, especially
the TFT variety.

OTOH, a 22" aperture grille monitor can be had for less than $650US.

So far my research has led to believe that all people using 1600x1200 on a small 19" CRT are brain dead.

You can read text fine at 1600x1200? I can't, and run my 19" crt at
1024x768, and that's with reading glasses. I have an LCD too but don't
like the native res of 1280x1024 for the above reason.

Check out 19" offerings from Princeton and Sharp. Princeton offers 19"
monitors that have 1600x1200 resolution and so may Sharp.

As opposed to a LARGE 19" CRT? :-)

Actually, 1600 x 1200 can be quite readable on a CRT of this
size; I've tested any number of monitors that worked very well,
and had the spot size and dot pitch to work with this format.
1600 x 1200 could also be done on a 17-18" LCD as well,
of course, but to date the demand for 1600 x 1200 has been
all in the 20" and above sizes (except for the 15-17" notebook
panels, of course).

LCD resolution, in the proper sense of the word, is right
around 100-110 ppi for mainstream amorphous-silicon
AMLCD monitor panels. It could go higher (actually, a LOT
higher - over 200 ppi has been available for some time in
LTPS LCDs), but outside of the portable computing market
there's been little demand for it.

CRTs maybe, but not LCDs.
No one makes 19" LCD monitors with 1600x1200 native resolution.

Please, what does native resolution mean?

"Native resolution" is a slight misuse of terminology, but
what it really means is the physical pixel format of the LCD
panel - for example, 15" LCD monitors generally have a
fixed pixel format of 1024 x 768 pixels.

So the Iiyama AU4831D (Hitachi panel) is only a dream? ;-)

Surely this resolution is better for 20''/21'' monitor.

Bob, I apologize if this is a bit O.T. & I'm not a regular here, but
I'm desperate (no exaggeration) because I can't find anyone else to
advise me with regard to which brands of computer monitors are bright
vs. dim. Believe me, I've tried, having back & forth correspondencce
with countless techies, including a NEC techie, Irlen expert & more.

I'm desperate due to my photosensitivity, and I've already lost money
investing in both LCD as well as CRT, only to find they're too bright
for me (unlike older CRTs). And btw, both color-changing & dimming via
the video card fails to help. Nor does raising frequency rate or
changing resolution. Nor room-lighting. All the classic so-called
solutions are bunk where photosensitivity is concerned.

I know that some photosensitives' problems are resolved via laptops
but those are expensive & I just bought a new Dell system, so don't
need a complete system - just a monitor.

I'd appreciate if you could possibly get back to me privately, as
there's more I'd like to discuss and it's presently painful for me to
be at my screen too long due to painful symptoms triggered (& body
degeneration) via my optic nerves. I promise I won't take up much
time, I just need some informed answers for a change. Thanks.
