My head still continues to have problems comprehending just how wide 16:9 screens are. I’m sure that monitors will gradually evolve to the point where they’re just a single pixel high and 20,000 pixels wide.
Iiyama’s latest – the ProLite B2409HDS – is a 16:9 letterbox beastie, and I’ve had to move some of the crap on my desk just to fit it on.
Compared to other monitors it’s rather pricey for a 24-incher. It doesn’t feature LED backlighting, or an IPS panel, instead it relies on conventional backlighting and a cheapo TN (Twisted Nematic) panel.
