1920x1080 vs. 1920x1200. It's not the size but how you use it. Secret

I purchased the 23" from HP yesterday and it is an excellent monitor.

Unless you yourself know what you will do with an 1920 x 1200 monitor, I'd say stick with the 1920 x 1080 as it is what HD media and games are targeting.

I also have a LG 21.5 inch IPS screen the IPS226 and the HP is better quality, no bleed where the LG seems to have a bit.

lol I just ordered a Shimian 27"
I heard these Dells use e-IPS, whereas the Catleaps and Shimians use true 8-bit.
For this price, I can get about 20 19" CRT on Craigslist. 19"x20 that's 380" of screens! woot Betcha didn't see that coming!

Looks like good price for an IPS panel, but I think I'll settle for size over panel quality. I want a 27" 1920x1080 monitor for gaming lol

This is a pretty good monitor, I got in the last Newegg deal that was a little more expensive than this. Although not all IPS displays are created equal. Off angle (even a few inches), this one develops a strange look to darker colors, especially black. Looks like maybe backlight leakage since it's at the bottom of the screen. I sent mine back to Newegg for an exchange, which they completely covered, and the second one is much better. But it's still there. When I compare it to a 4 year old 22" Lenovo I have at work, the Lenovo is definitely better in just about every respect.

I did consider trying one of those Catleaps from eBay, but I need multiple inputs and dual-link DVI switchers are prohibitively expensive.

I game on it some, League of Legends, and it does have some ghosting for those interested. When you move your character on the screen, the name over the character blurs some and makes it a bit hard to read. For my gaming purposes this isn't an issue, so keep that in mind when you consider the type of use you're going for.

Just to throw my 2 cents in... I recently dumped all of my 1920x1080 in trade for 1920x1200. The 1920x1200 just has a ton more space. Remember that these monitors measure diagonally and those extra vertical pixels are a huge advantage to both games and applications. Nearly all web pages scroll vertically, this reduces the amount of scroll in that situation. It also allows you to display a full 8.5x11 page A4 at native resolution.

Compare:
1920x1080 = 2,073,600 pixels
1920x1200 = 2,304,000 pixels

This is very much a noticeable difference. This monitor looks great too!

Short answer, same width but 1.5 inches more in height.

Here's the data:

This 24" Dell: 16:10, 1920x1200, Screen Width is 20.35", Screen Height:12.72"

Standard 24" 1080p monitors: 16:9, 1920x1080, Screen Width is 20.92", Screen Height is 11.77"

Basically, 16:10 monitors are about 1/2" less wide and 1 inch taller.

The 23" HP: 16:9, 1920x1080, Screen Width is 20.04", Screen Height is 11.27" (1.44" shorter than this dell!!! That's a lot if you ask me) Note that the width is about the same, so it is as if someone put an extra 1.5" on the bottom of the screen.

For people who only watch movies, the extra height won't make a difference, but for people who surf the internet and real slick deals, I think the extra inch of inch and a half makes a difference.

Also, generally, 16:10 monitors cost more because LCD factors are tuned to make truck loads of 1920x1080 screens. It costs money to change up the factory settings to 1920x1200 AND a lot less 1920x1200 get sold so there is an economy of scale issue there too.

If you are consdering buying a monitor, I strongly suggest you cut out some paper into the sizes of the screens so you can precisely see the size and shape differences.

There's no absolute formula to determine these things, but I think you'll see 1920x1080 monitors drop in price with sales and such, but I would not expect these 16:10 monitors to change price quite as readily. My guess would be that you could see a $20-40 off in the best case.
