I've been using a BenQ E2200HD (22" 1080p) for a few months and love it. I've had a couple friends buy them after seeing mine. They have been pretty cheap here recently, as low as 150CAD when ya catch a deal.

-maybe I am wrong, but I thought that standard resolution for 24inch monitor panels was 1920x1200? and 23'' have 1920x1080.

@ Blackhawk1928: There's a bit of a battle going on: Some are 16:10 (1920x1200) but most manufacturers seem to be moving to the 16:9 1920x1080, aspect ratio for HD compatability.

@Outlander_04: Take a look at Xbitlabs, they have a huge archive of monitor reviews, as does Cnet.

Or they are doing it to inflate their profits, even if ever so slightly.

I know my 1920x1200 screen is perfectly compatible with HD content and in fact is HDCP compliant.

Thanks for the xbitlabs tip .

I would actually prefer a 1920 x 1200 monitor but they cost a lot more .
The 1920 x 1080 units are very well priced and I can probably run my favorite games without a gfx card upgrade at that resolution too . The extra pixels on the 1200 high screen would probably be a step too far .

1920 x 1200 = 2304000 pixels

1920 x 1080 = 2073600 pixels

Roughly 11% more pixels means 11 % slower frame rates so the 1080 resolution is my best compromise .The BenQ , ASUS and ACER models are on my shortlist and its great to hear that they are decent monitors even though they are so cheap
Thanks

Is it actually true that extra screen area is directly proportional to performance loss? I don't think so...

Interesting though. I wonder if you can fit a formula to that..
