If you research how things are made you find a direct tie from TV LCD production to the machines that make the LCD panels. These machines are in the many millions of dollars so you are going to see HD ratios from now on.
If this is unacceptable, buy what you want today before they are no more.
My inquiry is a general question about LCD monitors about which I hope someone can enlighten me.
My current LCD monitor is a 19" monitor. I am looking to buy a new larger LCD monitor for a new computer system I am building. I noticed that there are many new larger LCD monitors.
All of the larger LCD monitors are wide-screen monitors. That is, they retain the same height as my current 19" monitor but are wider, anywhere from 20" wide to 30" wide within a reasonable price range. While I am interested in some of these new LCD monitors for my new computer system I am curious as to why the larger LCD monitor technology are all wider than my current monitor but not proportionally taller as far as the display area goes. Why is that ? I would have assumed that as newer, larger LCD monitors are being engineered that the display area of the monitor would be proportionally larger so that it could display both a greater width and a greater height.
