    Given that the Dell 23in widescreen monitor carries a very high resolution something like 1900 by 1200(approx) why is it that most LCD TV's are only 768 lines horizontal.

    My speculation is that a monitor is designed to be sat in front of and therefore needs less wide angle viewing capability and each pixel can be smaller.

    So my actual question is:

    Does the requirement for wide angle offset viewing mean that each pixel has to be bigger or at least farther apart to allow this. If not why don't we see more 26in and above screens with the full 1080 lines needed for high def?

    There are one or two around right now. Sharp's 45" LCD I think. I believe that the 37" and 42" Philips 9830's will have full 1080 vertical resolution.
