“Full HD” is just marketing speak for “downgraded monitor”. Years ago, it was normal for a nice monitor to have 1200 vertical lines (or more). Now they’re hard to find as monitor makers are trying to downgrade the resolution and then sugar-coat it by touting it as “full HD!” because people associate “1080P” as “top of the line” due to TVs. Which is BS because a 1200 line monitor looks SO much nicer.
These days, if you get a 1080P computer monitor you’re getting a LOW END monitor. Do yourself a favor and don’t buy into this marketing gimmick.
Not really. You were never going to find a 1600x1200 monitor in this price range. Anything in a 4:3 aspect ratio would likely be 1280x1024, and anything in a 16:10 would likely be 1680x1050. Are there 1600x1200 monitors available? Sure, but they cost considerably more – you could probably score a 2560x1440 monitor in the same price range.
And don’t discount the usefulness of that extra horizontal space either. It makes it much easier to multitask.
Is it a low end monitor? Of course. It’s $100. What were you expecting?
