Before you thumbs down this post, this is a 4:3 monitor with a resolution of 1600x1200. Not everyone uses a computer for watching movies. Widescreen monitors don't work well for some people.

1600x1200 monitors are a rarity since manufacturers have basically stopped making them. Dell offers the 2007FP, but it retails for $450.
  • Display technology: LCD
  • Display type: Standard 4:3
  • Display size: 20 inches diagonal
  • Display resolution: 1600 pixels x 1200 pixels with Intelligent Auto-resolution
  • Response Time: 8ms
  • Contrast Ratio: 800:1

Before you say "only 20 inches" remember this is 4:3 so it is bigger than 16:9 monitors with the same or even greater diagonal.

(This) A 20 inch 4:3 screen is 192.13 square inches.
(1080p) A 21 inch 16:9 screen is 188.32 square inches.


This is an IPS panel

Good find, OP. Wish it was larger size, but for the price, it is a good deal. At home I have two 1920x1200 monitors (one is 24" and the other 26") and couple of the standard 1080p. For movies, 1080p is great, but for work, I definitely need the larger vertical resolution; once you get used to 1200+ vertical pixels, it is difficult to go back and see truncated versions of your pages on 1080. Other than the usual suspects (eBay/Craigslist), one can occasionally find some cheap 4:3 Dell Ultrasharps at dfsdirectsales.com.

I think 4:3 format is best for work. I am using Dell 2007 for work - same resolution as this one, and they are perfect for coding. Those wide screen does not have enough vertical resolutions which cause a lot of extra up and down scrolling.

Found the fix for this problem. Bought my wife and I each a pair of U2311Hs off CL ($130 a piece) and rotated them into portrait mode. Presto, 1920 vertical!

U24XXs would be even better, but about twice as much money.

I put my laptop between them to handle stuff I want 1920 horizontal for.

But for those seeking 1600x1200--and I certainly understand the appeal--these seem a very good way to go. Repped.

Thanks for posting. I use 3 1600x1200's for work and one is going out. Refurbed 2007fp's are ~$150 off ebay, and forget about buying 1600x1200 new...

You'll change your mind after you've tried a rotated 30" monitor.

Not bad, but I wish it came in a larger size!
These low resolution monitors are really starting to irk me- people use them more than just for media entertainment. I personally have 2x 25.5" 1920x1200 Asus monitors that work wonders for me, but am now looking for a set of three monitors for an eyefinity setup- and a desk that fits 'em all Smilie

it rotates 90 degrees so keep that in mind for those who like portrait-landscape-portrait with their 30" monitors.

Dang wish I could find a U2311 for $130 in my area! Thats a pretty good deal! They sell for more than that on eBay.

Seriously. I used to have multiple 4:3 monitors, up to three at one point, but once I made the switch to a 30" Ive never looked back or missed multi-monitor setups! 2560x1600 is just wonderful! My first was a Samsung 305T and the latest is a Dell U3011.

I had two 22" Viewsonic's that were 4:3 years ago, but thats the largest I have ever seen a 4:3 LCD on the consumer market.

same question, if it's IPS I'll be all over this

my 6 year old dell 2001fp 20" monitor still looks WAY better than the TN and even e-isp displays that are comming out.
