Are there 19" 1600x1200 LCD monitors out there?

Archived from groups: comp.sys.ibm.pc.hardware.video (More info?)

Just curious... for desktop usage, I try hard to avoid resolutions lower
than 1600x1200 (it's for CAD work -- for games I'll give up resolution to
get better frame rates!). I'm curious if one can find a 1600x1200 native
LCD with a 19" screen? Or are they all 20.1+"?

I have a Viewsonic PF795 (19" CRT) from a couple of years ago and have been
very happy with it. 1600x1200 is quite usable on it, and I'd love to
replace it with something that has roughly the same screen size.

Thanks,

    I looked and looked for 1600x1200 monitors before buying a 20.1-inch
    monitor. I never saw anything below that size that would handle this
    native resolution. But I wanted something 20" or larger, anyway, as it
    was replacing a 20" CRT.

    Apparently you didn't know that ALL 19" LCD monitors are 1280 x 1024. You
    will need to buy a larger LCD monitor to get 1600 x 1200.

    They are not easy to find, but they do exist, for example:

    Eizo FlexScan L771
