    it's like asking which one is greater..a tall thin person or a short fat person.

    although you can just multiply them and find out which shows more pixels (1280*1024=1310720pixels)
    The abuse of greatness is when it disjoins remorse from power.

    So if itz the way then there is no so much difference between 1440x900 n 1280x1024. Again 1280x1024 n 1600x900? Wide or square matters? Confused!

    depends on what you need.

    generally speaking (for computer usage), 16:9 sucks.
    4:3 not bad.
    16:10 rocks.

    Most of the high def movies r in 16:9 ratio....i have 20" wide screen monitor and I have been using it for 4 months....and No...it does not suck...It may not Rock but it definitely does not suck....

    And have u guys watched a high def movie in a monitor of 4:3 aspect ratio??....that sucks....the blank bars in both top and bottom of the screen is quite annoying....u may argue why watch high def wen there is normal DVD-rip??..trust me watching a movie in high-def is really amazing...and on top of that if u have a monitor of 16:9 aspect ratio....its simply fantastic.....

    A PC is regarded as a great tool for entertainment....so why shudn't it be used as DVD player??

    The question asked by Xeon is quite a gud one....I believe most PC users at one tym faced this dilemma...but the answer isn't that simple...the answer given by CvP at the beginning is probably the best one....

    oh my
    what can I say, very nice...that explains it all

    4:3 is more like TV, now you tell...what's more fun watching regarding movies: a TV or a Widescreen Monitor?
    on top of it all, some 16:10 monitors even have the option to switch to a 16:9 view(mode) to compensate for watching movies

    & Sumon bhaiya you got that wrong, most movies are done 16:9 & 16:9 not 4:3, I m using a 4:3 monitor right & it's friggin disgusting to watch movies in it

    just because it's wide screen, doesn't mean it's 16:9.
    however, most are 16:9, some are 2.35:1.
    a few are 2.39:1 and 2.66:1.

    yes, it sucks. because:

    • 16:9 resolutions are total pain in the ¤¤¤ for any computer works (ms office, gfx design, web design, even gaming)
    • your average 16:9 monitors are TN panel which are good for games only (bad for movie/gfx design)
    • a 16:10 monitor can do everything a 16:9 monitor can do and more.
    • bottom line 16:10 > 16:9

    do you think you are the only one watching high def movies? Have you ever watched raw bluray?
    if you haven't, try watching one. you'll see there's something better than "fantastic".

    also, why'd someone go for a "monitor" if s/he is a movie freak? they dont make TV for nothing you know.

    • if you wanna use it as a dvd player, get a 16:9 PVA panel "TV", not a monitor.
    • a computer is supposed to be a multipurpose device.
      for that, you should get a monitor that supports "all" activities as much as possible.
    • a 16:10 is great for movies (can display 16:9 properly) as well as all other applications (the extra height makes a huge difference).
    • 16:10 TN is best for everything if you have a lower budget.
      16:10 PVA is best for everything (except gaming) if you have a high budget
      16:10 IPS is the king.
    The abuse of greatness is when it disjoins remorse from power.

    I'm speechless......CvP eto detailed reasoning korse.....

    Just ekta jinish bolbo...sorry CvP but i still disagree with the fact that 16:9 monitor sucks......

    Amar jokhon PC kinar kotha chilo at first i decided to buy a 17'' monitor....which at that tym had a cost of around 9500 and a 20" monitor had a cost of 10500 tk....then I saw the post of Mazhar bhai...he suggested a 20" montor for a midrange gaming PC....so I bought it....and thank goodness i bought it.....i have no regrets of buying this....i more than happy with this monitor...so it does not suck...well at least for me....

    And i haven't seen a raw bluray film....I really wish i cud see one.... but i need a bluray player, don't I??...and they cost a lot....downloading them is out of the question it would take me months with my ISP to download a raw bluray.....not to mention if i do get a blu ray player, to get the best experience I need a Hi-def TV...last I heard they also cost a lot.....but with my PC and the monitor i m getting as close as possible to HI-def experience and within an affordable price....and I'm more than happy....

    I know a lot of movie freak who watches movies in a monitor.....one of them even watches movies in a 15" inch monitor......so u don't need a TV to be movie freak....

    Truth to be told CvP......thnx for putting all the facts like this.....'cause the next tym i get into an argument like this...i'll know wat to say and wat not to say....ur post was quite educational.....

    if you cant afford a 16:10, no prob.
    but if you can, but wont because you think 16:9 monitor rocks, that's stupid.
    this is the point im trying to make.

    also, keep in mind that there's a very little price difference between these two.

    and finally, a TV, should definitely be 16:9.

    I never thought 16:9 rocks....i just said it does not suck and i am happy with it.....

    Truth to be told before buying the monitor i didn't have the slightest idea about aspect ratios....all i considered was it was big, it looked way better than the 17" one and a really small price difference between this one the 17" monitor....so u cud say the looks and the price dazzled me.......

    There is one other thing CvP, can u please tell me the size of a monitor of 16:10 aspect ratio?.....
