Looking for high-end 18- or 19-inch flat panels with high resolution.

I want to get a high-end 18- or 19-inch flat panel LCD monitor.
However all seem to list max resolution as 1280 x 1024
I want much higher (at least 1600 or even 2000 horizontal) at min 75Hz
refresh rate, for max $1200.

Is 1280 x 1024 really the highest or it is just a "typical" and the
real highest is much higher?

It's typical. FYI, Sharp has just announced a 1600x1200 20.1" LCD and is selling it for $1299. Ho bloody hum
you might be thinking. The special attribute of this particular LCD is its ~16ms~ pixel refresh response
time. 16ms for a 20" LCD!!! Wow... a 20" gaming LCD, ~and~ it comes in black. Just thought I'd mention it.

I've had that one on my desk for over 6 months now, it's been around a
while. And very good it is too

Viewsonic makes 20.1 or 20.3 inch monitors with 1600X1200. I use a
VX2000 that is now a couple years old--great monitor for everything.
You should be able to get a good price on these by looking around.

Yes... This is the LCD I would have bought instead of the current 17", had I known about it. I blame you for
this, Scott.

Haven't seen one of these up close, but Dell's currently offering their
Dell-branded "UltraSharp 2001FP 20.1-inch Flat Panel LCD Monitor with Height
Adjustable Stand" on sale at $899 (normally $999). 1600x1200. Check it out.

I have this LCD and it's GREAT!! Crisp clear display in both VGA and DVI
modes. The stand is much improved from the previous 2000fp model, and is
very space-saving. This LCD also has 16ms response time and is great for
gaming as well.

Highly recommended. I got it for $750 + sales tax when it was first
released.
