21.5" monitor Tags: Flat Panel Monitors Computer Monitors Peripherals Last response: February 10, 2011 12:28 AM in Computer Peripherals Share Anonymous a b C Monitor February 9, 2011 6:57:13 PM Hi i recently bought what i thought was a 22" AOC monitor down the computer store as it was in the 22" section. However when i returned home i realised it said on the box it is 21.5". Does anyone know why it is 21.5"?

Be interesting to measure yours -- I checked my 19 inch flatscreen and it's exactly 19 inches. Back in the days of CRT, screens were measured to include the part of the glass obscured by the plastic case so that my remaining Trinitron 19 actually has only 18 inches of usable space. Anonymous a b C Monitor February 9, 2011 7:58:37 PM mine is exactly 21.5" i just measured. Im just wondering if you get better pic quality or something because im strugling to find a reason otherwise why they wouldnt make it 22".
