    I keep being told that I shouldn't buy a high DPI monitor because it reduces the size of everything, but using XP, Vista, & Windows 7, you can change settings to compensate for a high DPI so that you see things the size that you would like to see them.

    Personally, I'm waiting for the already mentioned LG w2220p: a 22" high DPI screen.

    Stangely, the 24" monitor of that same 20p range is a lower DPI: it having the same resolution but a bigger screen.

    I was thinking of buying the Iiyama 24" for £200 from play.com, and then I was tempted by the 22" dell with IPS screen, not least because it's not a gamer's 16:9, but as I said, I'm going to wait for this:

    Does anyone else experience a better picture with a higher DPI screen with their PC set to compensate?

    1920x1200/1080 is *more* than enough for computer monitors. I have an LG W2600HP at work and I wouldn't want the resolution to be any higher. You should also consider the demands a high resolution puts on your graphics hardware. You need quite some gear to deal with 1920x1200/1080. Lastly, and on a related note, 1920x1080 is still a very high resolution for e.g. 60" PDP or LCD tvs.

    if your going to buy a new monitor.. always looked at it like- either go 1280x on the low end or 1920x and skip 1680 alltogether- all the newer cards can handle 1080p anyways

    Given the oft repeated moan of the sameness of 22" monitors these days, I just wish we could have a definitive top three recommendation for 22" monitors in the £100 -£200 price range ...which given that price range recommends on the basis of picture quality and the lack (or otherwise) of back light bleed? Every site review or contributor seems to have a different recommendation ...often the one they own!
