Monitor 24" to 27", 1920x1200, 120Hz ?

I'm looking to buy a new monitor I want a big one like 24" to 27".
I hate 16/9 ratio so I'm definitely looking for a 16/10 with 1920x1200 pixels.
I'm thinking 2D smoothness and maybe 3D so 120Hz would be welcome...

I don't seem to find anything that fits my requirements, does that even exist ?

thanks !

Based on prior research, there is a bandwidth limitation on dual DVI connections which means that 120Hz output is limited to 1920x1080.

You'll either need to:

1. Buy a 60Hz 1920x1200 monitor
2. Buy a 120Hz 1920x1080 monitor
3. Wait for DVI specifications to be updated (could be a long wait)

Oh it explains why I couldn't find any. I think I'll get a good 60Hz instead like the last Dell U2412M 24".

Okay, just be aware that it has a relatively high response time of 8ms compared to 2ms and 5ms of less expensive TN panel monitors. This generally means that the chances of seeing ghosting effects is a bit higher. It does not mean it will be 4x worse than a 2ms response time monitor though.

However on the plus side it's viewing angles will be better than any TN panel monitor out there.

Read the following review of the Dell 2412m before making your decision. It probably also a good idea to read the user reviews of this monitor from Dell's website.

The response time might be a little slower but the overdrive is working nicely and the input lag is lower than average which makes a fair screen to play with.

Thanks for the answers
