I own one of these, having picked it up in 2003 for a project I was doing at the time. To the best of my knowledge, this monitor had the most pixels you could get on a single screen for any price. To the best of my knowledge, this is still true even today (late 2011). This is its biggest strength and, oddly, also its biggest weakness.

3840x2400. That's a LOT of pixels. 22.2" display. That's not a lot of area. So what you're getting here is a whole lot of pixels, crammed into an ordinary-sized monitor. If you have perfect eyes, you can fit a whole lot of data on the screen, and it will be beautifully sharp. You can make your browser window really tall and see way more of a page than ever before. You can make your browser window really wide and all the paragraphs will be one line long. You can fit six or eight pages of a document on the screen all at once. And you can fit a whole lot of windows on the screen, with barely any overlap. Unfortunately, this is a really uncomfortable way to read things. Everything is really small. So small, you probably can't read it without leaning really close and squinting.

In a nutshell, you CAN fit a lot of data on the screen at one time... but you don't want to.

As it happens, that's not what the monitor was designed for.

What it was designed for was to display images in beautifully high resolution. And it does this very very well. When you're displaying images, you mostly don't care to see individual pixels. Indeed, you specifically DON'T want to see individual pixels. Normal monitors show you (more-or-less) 100 pixels per inch. This doubles that, and you get (again, more-or-less) 200 pixels per inch.

Ace of Spades has it all wrong.

This monitor is entirely unique.

Its resolution is double that of almost any LCD on the market.

4 1080 HD video streams tiled on screen with plenty of room to spare!

No other monitor on the market will fit even 2.

Its pixel density is higher than a 600dpi photo printer.

I just picked up one on ebay for a song but normally the resale value is circa 7000 - 8000 dollars.

These monitors are mainly used in defence (Satellite recon) and medical imaging sectors and are very sought after now that they are no longer made and no similar product exists.

I actually got to demonstrate the T-220 in a printing application at Xplor. The monitor is beyond a doubt the clearest I have ever seen. You can see the specifications at: [...] Notice that it has been replaced by the T-221, [...] .

The price has dropped from that original price, but is still hefty. You need this kind of monitor if you are involved in remote medical services (X-Ray reading, etc), preprint set up, or detailed CAD/CAM. If you are looking for a home device to surf E-Bay, this is not the device for you.
