Regardless of how nice the panel is 16:9 1920x1080 is pure fail.

Oh and wide colour gamut. Stick a fork in this one. Granted I guess it is for pro use but why the lower resolution?

And why is that? In the absence of any ~22" 1920x1200 panels, I'll take a 1080p display over a 1680x1050 one any day.

Because the combination of high grade panel with a resolution and aspect ratio that is considered inferior for PC usage is strange. Sure for cheap TN panels go for it. I mean most LCD panels on the market really suck and NEC going this route is no good. 22inchers have always been considered black sheep anyways. The only reason for 1080p for PC monitors as far as I'm concerned is cost and that doesn't help me.

Considered inferior by whom? And compared to what? We're talking about 22" monitors here, where the only competition are 1680x1050 displays. Whether we're talking about TN or IPS panels, a 1920x1080 display is always preferable to a 1680x1050 one. Sounds to me like the only reason you're complaining about it is because it's not a "traditional" PC resolution, but a higher res is still a higher res, regardless of aspect ratio.

So your argument basically hinges upon the fact that you think 1080p is an inferior resolution simply because you don't like it. That makes a whole lot of sense.
