HDTV Has Ruined the LCD Market

alvin67 writes “Microsoft Evangelist, Pete Brown rants about the lack of pixels available in today’s LCD screens: ‘Ok, that’s it. I’ve had it. I want my pixels, damn-it! For a while, screen resolution has been going up on our desktop displays. The trend was good, as I’ve always wanted the largest monitor with the highest DPI that I could afford. I mean, I used to have one of the first hulking 17″ CRTs on my desk. I later upgraded to a 21-inch job that was so huge, that if you didn’t stick it in a corner, it took up the whole desk. It was flat-panel, though and full of pixels. It cost me around $1100 at the time.”

After some years of improvements, we’ve regressed, in Brown’s opinion: “At the rate we were going for a while, we should have had twice or three times the DPI on a 24 or 23 inch screen. But nooo.”
