Me, it's gaming. It's this reason that I not only chose a TN panel but also a 20" instead of a 24"+. I hate running games at scaled resolutions and I ain't going to spend $$$$ on uber rig to drive a game at 1920x1200. So with the 20"WS you get a respectable 1680x1050. My system can push that resolution just fine.

The TN panel also rids me of the far more annoying LCD smear than an IPS can. And since when I play games I am focused front, the color shift of TN panels is nearly non-existant.

That's all I am saying.
Dude, ditto. That is why I got my SP2008WFP instead of a 24". I also turned down a 22" because the pixel pitch is bigger, i.e. same amount of pixels in more space.

True. 1440x900 still looks decent on a 1680x1050 monitor, at least on mine it does, for games like Crysis, lol.

What you would need, if you got a large screen, would be one that scaled extremely well because I know my monitor looks fugly when it isn't in 16:10/native resolution.

The *ONLY* bad thing about not getting a 24" is that with a smaller one you don't get the "full" quality of HD. They really need an in-between step from 720P to 1080P. Like 1050P, .
