16:9 monitors replaced previous designs because of a perfect storm of LCD manufacturing conditions and mainstream buyers who are not discerning. I'm told wider panels and synergies with TV panels both save manufacturers money.

16:9 is the best aspect ratio for watching widescreen video. Anyone think it is best for personal computing?
