Any chance of reviewing some "proper" monitors? I am talking about ones with real computer resolutions not this fad for 1920 * 1080 screen resolutions, which are almost useless for real computing. I want to see monitors with 1920 * 1200 at least, even better what about a 24" 1920 * 1440 4:3? I did a quick search and the last time you did a review on a 30" monitor was in 2008, any chance of some updates?Thanks
To be fair, I think the amount of "proper" monitors that you describe is getting smaller and smaller, Im not a fan of the idea 16:9 for computing use but finding a 16:10 20-23 IPS panel is difficult so I've gone and got one anyway
Interesting review. I do have one doubt, though: is this set quality (image, sound) REALLY worse than the LD220 you reviewed for the same inputs? Or is it a matter of just being less value for money? The thing is, over in Portugal they sell for much the same price and - actual quality being the same - I'd rather get the b2230hd because of the USB playback, better connectivity and actually having a stand.
I'm a Mac user and with the Mac's good monitor calibration sw I was able to get awesome color matching and an accurate white point, better than all iMacs I saw and even my son's professional expensive Eizo looked poor in comparison. So no points subtracted for bad VGA in my case but some added.
