LCD Monitor Trends

  • 4:3 is going extinct;
  • 300 cd/m2 brightness is the mainstream;
  • 1000:1 contrast is the mainstream;
  • 1920x1080 (16:9) is rapidly gaining upon 1920x1200 (16:10), and you can get disproportionately better deals for monitors in 1920x1080 vs. 1920x1200. 1920x1200 seems to be pushed into the "elitist" market niche, priced accordingly;
  • resolutions higher than 1920x1200 seem to be treated as exotic, with either significantly less bang for the buck for 30" at 2560 x 1600, or higher pixel pitch for 23" at 2048 x 1152;
  • HDMI connector isn't quite making it out there yet;
  • At the same time, more than half of monitors declare themselves HDCP compatible.
