With 16:10 aspect ratios, 24-inch monitors find themselves an increasingly endangered species these days; it's good to know which ones stand ahead of the pack.
I have a question. Is having a 16:9 aspect ratio monitor (as opposed to 16:10) really all that beneficial? The answer is, "it depends".
With a 16:9, 21.5-inch monitor, you have a native resolution of 1920x1080, whereas with a 16:10, 22-inch, 1680x1050, monitor you have 16 percent less actual usable pixels.
Monitors with 4:3 or 16:10 aspect ratios are dying out. The future is all about 16:9 displays like the new BenQ M2200HD, which we had the pleasure of testing recently
