It is hard to find an LCD monitor in standard 4:3 resolution. I have poor vision and wanted a replacement for my CRT monitor. Widescreens actually have less screen area than a standard monitor of the same measurement and you need to get a larger one to get an equivalent screen height. Larger screens have higher resolution, so everything is smaller and can be harder to see. If you run a lower than native resolution, they use interpolation, so the graphics are not as good. The 19" Asus is very sharp and clear. It was advertised as being 1024x768, but the native resolution is actually 1280x1024. I was concerned about that, but I am currently running it and have no problem seeing it. Everything is about the same size as 1024x768 was on my old 17" CRT, but I have a lot more vertical screen area for displaying web pages. Colors are excellent, the viewing angle is wide and the response time for videos is fine. If you are looking for a standard resolution LCD monitor, this Asus is a good choice.
