Any good 16:10/4:3/3:2/5:4 monitors these days?

My old trusty dell 16:10 monitor is on the way out with several bruises from being transported so often. I was wondering if there are any non 16:9/superwide resolution monitors these days with modern features that aren't in laptops.

What resolution and features are you looking for? There are many monitors like this, but most are not for gaming, so no high refresh rates and low response times.

For example the Huawei MateView 28.2" is a 3:2 with UHD+ resolution, so it's as wide as UHD, but taller to fit the 3:2 ratio, Dell U3023E has a 16:10 ratio, 4:3 and 5:4 only seem to be available in small monitors less than 20".

Basically 16:10 is dead. I found an article about best 16:10 and all is 60hz and no gaming optimize features.

 

https://spacehop.com/best-1610-monitors/

 

I had use before also 16:10 and I love it as well, too bad this aspect ratio is not favor by manufacturer and it is very rare now.

 

For others like 4:3 and 5:4 I don't think ever exist anymore.

 

The 3:2 only have one at the moment as above point out - Huawei MateView.

I wasn't aware dell made another 16:10 after their last 30 inch. That one actually looks sick, it's basically a thunderbolt dock... Plus the KVM support looks fun.

 

A bit out of budget at the moment though, but definitely on my list.

Yah the market seems similar to when I last looked a while ago. However something like the Huawei MateView existing at all gives me hope that non 16:9 resolutions will make a comeback. I would love something above 60hz so I don't need another monitor JUST for gaming.

 

I can dream I suppose 😄

There's a tiny number of 75Hz 1920x1200 screens, but anything over 100Hz is limited to 16:9, 21:9, 32:9, 24:10 and 32:10 ratios.

I did notice there was an acer that was 75hz. Wonder if it could be overclocked.

As a fan of 16:10, once I switch to 4K UHD 27inch monitors (16:9), I really don't care about 16:10. It was important back then, when 1080p on a 23inch was limited in workspace, and you try to gain every pixel you can in height. But now with 4K display 27inch (Display Scaling of default 150%) I have so much workspace now, I don't need the extra height. Working with text (coding) all day, the high DPI is very welcome. I cannot go back now. Text is super sharp and smooth. Make everything easier to read.

 

Get one from a place that has easy return and give it a spin. It is all I can say. I think you'll be pleased (assuming you can afford such monitor, as sadly, they are very pricey, still. I guess the last 2 years situation didn't help anything... 😕 ).

Believe me, I've played with plenty of 4k 16:9 monitors, and I've played with the high res 16:10 laptop screens. I know what I prefer, I'd rather not invest in a system I'm not thrilled with but at the end of the day I may have no choice.

The worst part is, you now have 21:9 and 32:9 offerings, because apparently the industry thinks we want to go EVEN FURTHER AWAY  from the golden ratio.

 

I'm going to assume these developers are also attracted to women with waists bigger than their bustlines.

You may check out the LG 16:18 aspect ratio monitor. It may suite your need.

Now that's a strange looking monitor. Kind of upsetting that it has LG's nano IPS tech but DOESN'T go above 60 hz.

There's one that could be of some use I guess - just need to flip them to the side

Ya but too bad it is only 60hz, I can't stand 60hz display already. 100hz is minimum requirement for me even for productivity, smooth animation is very important now. 😄

Yeah, I got it, actually I wouldn't mind 60hz in game but for productivity, that 144hz is so very nice to work with
