    Marketing gimmik.

    24" is no-where near big enough to replace your main TV and appreciate HD resolutions (the viewing distance is going to be too great for most people).....and who exactly needs a 16:9 PC monitor?

    Seems to me that they are just fiddling you out of 120 lines of display for no good reason.

    Re: News - BenQ still betting on 16:9, launches four full-HD displays

    I use my PC as a TV in my room. It's more than big enough, viewing a little more than a bed-length away (and to the side a touch too, obviously). Small enough that lowish quality videos can still be viewed without distracting pixelation (you can see if you're looking for it), but big enough to clearly make out everything.

    My argument is that my 16:10 Dell is happy enough, and I can watch non-widescreen things a bit larger than I could on this 16:9 one, but I can see there being a market if the quality is decent for that sort of money.

    I don't mind the black bars on my 16:10 22", but if they're cheap then it's not a bad option.

    Extra inputs would make sense though if it's going to replace a tv in the bedroom/etc.

    Re: News - BenQ still betting on 16:9, launches four full-HD displays

    If somebody's in the market for a monitor they can watch full HD content on then £150 is the cheapest around by far, especially for a quality monitor with HDCP. It looks like this is coinciding quite well with the drop in prices for blu-ray drives to sane levels, so I reckon it could sell quite well.

    TN Panels, fail, come on TFT companys, make a effort to bring out a quality product at least.
