    Two years? I've had my FP241's for -6-7 years already. The Bit-Tech review alone was in 2006 (6 years) and I had mine before that. I've also used them everyday for the 6-7 years for very long periods of time.

    What does QHD stand for here?
    I know qHD from mobile devices where it basically is a quarter of 1080p.
    but this is more than 1080p.

    Holy thread resurrection, Batman! QHD is Quad High Definition, so called because it is four times the pixels of 720p (rather than four times the pixels of 1080p as you might expect, which is naughty.)

    More correctly, the 2560x1440 of this monitor is known as WQHD - Widescreen Quad High Definition - but Asus calls it QHD and who am I to argue? It's their monitor. They can call it Bob if they want.

    There's also QFHD, which really *is* four times the pixels of 1080p at 3840×2160 - and UHD at 7680×4320, but it'll be a while before *that* hits your desk...
