If you’ve researched LCD displays in the past, you’ll have likely come across the resolution gap between most 22- and 24-inch LCD monitors. Most 22-inch monitors seem to be at a pretty sweet price point right now, but the 1680×1050 resolution is short of most 24-inch monitors’ full HD (1920×1200) resolution.

Well Buffalo has managed to cram full HD resolution into a 22-inch monitor, according to Akihabara News. Aside from the 1920×1200 goodness, there’s also a 1,000:1 contrast ratio, 300cd/m² brightness, 5ms response time, and a 170-degree viewing angle. The price seems a little stiff at 280 Euro (almost $400) but we’ll probably never see these here in the US anyway. However, it’s a good sign of things to come as more and more monitor manufacturers that do sell their wares here in the states will likely start pushing out higher resolution 22-inchers in the near future.
