    Erm, for quite a lot of laptop displays 1080p would be a step up - e.g. the laptop that I'm typing this on is a "marvellous" (sarcasm) 1440x900. And being rude, will you really notice those 120 missing vertical pixels in going down from 1920x1200 to 1080p?

    I'm prepared to give Philips a pass on this, mainly because QD IS new tech, so you'd expect mainstream resolutions before they try the 4K nonsense.

    Well, he's not wrong. When I was an undergrad back in the early 00's, my housemate had a 1600x1200 Dell Inspiron laptop (which became 1920x1200 when widescreen happened). Then we had a multi-year void where high DPI vanished from the market - basically when LCD TVs became the norm, and every LCD panel on the computer market was a TV cast-off

    Re: Philips introduces the world's first quantum dot monitor

    The missing 120 pixels vertically is the worst thing about the 1080p 16:9 monitor scourge.

    I.e., for non-movie, non-video, non-gaming uses, monitors have been actively getting worse in recent history, and don't actually provide much more than an old 1280x1024 monitor, and certainly less than a 1600x1200 CRT did way back in the day.

    Still, in a laptop 1080p is fine. But this is a 27" monitor. 2560x1440 would be far far nicer, if 4K was out of the question.

    Re: Philips introduces the world's first quantum dot monitor

    There's nothing actually wrong with 1080p while I would like higher def models. It's definitely a step in the right direction and I hope we see oled models out too.

    I had a 1600*1200 laptop in 2003. The market for higher resolution stuff disappeared in all but the very expensive end, Sony VAIOs were one of the few that catered for it.

    Then Apple invented Retina and blam the DPI wars took off sacrificing colour along the way.

    Why don't they reveal the aggressive price point?

    I seriously prefer 1600p for any type of productivity. for gaming its irrelevant though.

    At least you didn't echo the comment I saw recently that said all monitors should be 4:3 because that's more "natural". I thought the big driver for 16:9 was "widescreen" TV.

    I don't miss the power drain and the sheer weight of those CRTs - remember having a pretty substantial Trinitron CRT and that was barely carriable.

    For my laptops 1080p would be a step up (cheapskate employer). Actually I'm going to agree with you, for a 23" monitor 1080p's probably okay, but now folks are getting used to hires screens on phones and tablets, for a 27" 1440 would definitely be better. Maybe they'll launch a "Mark 2" panel with that?

    Absolutely! The only thing that 1080 meant to me was a vastly reduced choice in monitors for ages and ages. I echo jas88's "firing squad" for those behind the "plague".

    Personally, I do.

    I was bypassing 90% of monitors looking at an upgrade.
