Are you really going to be thinking about it that much when you are spending hours working on it? Have you tried 16:9 monitors for years, as I have? I think you should give 16:9 a chance, it's not that bad.

G.G. and McFly your points are valid, and it all comes to personal preference once again, however considering the purchase, I have no regrets at all. 16:9 or 16:10, I'm playing a game as full HD, period. I don't regret this purchase, this monitor is one of the best monitor I've seen considering as TN panel being equipped and is very beautiful aesthetically . In other words I'd missing a bit on gaming since it is 16:9, but while gaming it hardly matters, because I don't see anything wrong. I have seen people connecting Full HD TVs as monitors are they not missing on gaming? No.

To me I would never regret this purchase, check reviews online, check reviews on Newegg and see how good this monitor is. As mentioned before, while I'm playing games, I'm concentrating on what's being displayed, rather that worrying about PIXEL size :D

Thanks for your time friends.

If I have to use it for years before I like it, I don't want it. :P

I'll try it when they stop manufacturing 16:10. But by then, you guys will be all hot-and-bothered by your 1920x600 "Super-Wide" displays. ^_^

Nor should you. It is indeed a preference, and you still got a good monitor. :_)

I go for what's good, not for what's the common trend. Most monitors are indeed 16:9 and it just so happens that the particular monitor I wanted(Asus MS238H LED-LCD) is 16:9 as well. I love this monitor, I swear to god.

Supreet,

Samsung is a top tier purchase when it comes to monitors and absolutely you should NOT have any regrets with your purchase. If you dought yourself, then I say take it back and get something else. Some how, that is not an issue. You made a great purchase.

As for hooking up HDTVs ..... as for 16:9 vs 16:10 (if there is such a thing), in these large format, i.e. 32" and larger, you will see much less of a difference when it comes to real estate since there is physically so much of it that it will mask the actual onscreen pixel real estate.

It would be nice to have a HTPC with a card like an HD4870 and newer hooked up to a 46" HDTV and use it for the usual computing and gaming. But for me..... I still have to wait till I get a 50" or larger HDTV before I can think of a HTPC..... currently I am running a '96 Mitsubishi 40" crt with a Corian top at the moment and it is still going strong, even with only getting over the air digital signals that have to be converted back to analog via an external digital tuner box.... lol oh well.... one day i'll have that new and latest HDTV.... one day...

You don't really need to buy a Samsung-branded monitor to get a Samsung display, they supply panels to a lot of manufacturers. Although with other manufacturers you never really know for sure until after you've bought it.

I usually consider the panel display type first, although good IPS panels come at a hefty premium.

I know about all the panel technology. I intentionally went with TN this time, initially I wanted to purchase Dell UltraSharp 2410WFP (S-IPS, though H-IPS is a lottery) but this monitor really impressed with me a lot, first it is aesthetically very beautiful, secondly it has RED colored menu options and red colored body. I absolutely love it. My computer theme is RED and BLACK (ATI). I've also pre-ordered computer table with Black plywood for almost 155$, will probably get it in in couple of weeks or probably by the end of this month.

I'll be getting DVI-D cable for it in a day or two also. I absolutely love Mass Effect, its Mass Effect which brought be back into gaming. More upgrades coming soon, stay tuned ;)

Samsung and Sony have joint venture and develop SPVA panels distributed to various other manufacturers. I prefer SPVA over IPS due deep black depth and vibrant colors. My Sony Bravia KLV-32NX500 has SPVA panel, and it's absolutely amazing!

Just an update. Got myself DVI-D (Dual-Link) cable equipped with the monitor and card, everything is crystal clear. I would rate 9 for this Monitor on a scale of 1 to 10 where 1 being lowest and 10 being highest.

Looks nice, I hope for your sake that the backlight bleed is less than my T220HD.
