    I want to get a high-end 18- or 19-inch flat panel LCD monitor.
    However all seem to list max resolution as 1280 x 1024
    I want much higher (at least 1600 or even 2000 horizontal) at min 75Hz
    refresh rate, for max $1200.

    Is 1280 x 1024 really the highest or it is just a "typical" and the
    real highest is much higher?

    20" is about the smallest flat panel that will do 1600x1200 natively.

    look at pricewatch www.pricewatch.com for prices. Cheapest is a planar for
    $1000 at

  3. It's typical. FYI, Sharp has just announced a 1600x1200 20.1" LCD and is selling it for $1299. Ho bloody hum
    you might be thinking. The special attribute of this particular LCD is its ~16ms~ pixel refresh response
    time. 16ms for a 20" LCD!!! Wow... a 20" gaming LCD, ~and~ it comes in black. Just thought I'd mention it.

    I've had that one on my desk for over 6 months now, it's been around a
    while. And very good it is too :)

    Viewsonic makes 20.1 or 20.3 inch monitors with 1600X1200. I use a
    VX2000 that is now a couple years old--great monitor for everything.
    You should be able to get a good price on these by looking around.

  6. Yes... This is the LCD I would have bought instead of the current 17", had I known about it. I blame you for
    this, Scott.

    I have this LCD and it's GREAT!! Crisp clear display in both VGA and DVI
    modes. The stand is much improved from the previous 2000fp model, and is
    very space-saving. This LCD also has 16ms response time and is great for
    gaming as well.

    Highly recommended. I got it for $750 + sales tax when it was first
