24" Monitor Resolutions: 1920 x 1200 vs. 1920 x 1080

I just had a 24" monitor crap out on me. I loved the thing. It had a resolution of 1920 X 1200.

I'm looking at new monitors, and it seems there has been a steady trend at making these monitors 1920 X 1080 now.

Why is this? Which is better over all?

  1. Thats because 1920 X 1080 is native full HD as in BluRay resolution.

    Mactronix
  2. its not about better, its just about the resolution.

    1920x1080 = has an aspect ratio of 1.77, its the native resolution of HD and Blu-ray.
    1920x1200 = has an aspect ratio of 1.6, its the native resolution of Widescreens.

    so its not abotu which is better, its about whatever you want, no major difference between them, really...

    i don't know bout which are generally cheaper or more expensive, sry...

    gd luck.
