Question about 1920x1080 22" Monitors.

I have heard 22" 1920x1080 monitors such as the Dell S2209W (http://accessories.us.dell.com/sna/products/Displays/productdetail.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=dhs&cs=19&sku=320-7438) are very hard to see.

This is a very big issue for me because I have bad eyesight and the monitor will be a good distance away. Should I just buy a trusty 1680x1050 instead?

Thanks.

it's harder to see because of the higher pixel density. Personally I would go for the 1680x1050 because at the distance you'll probably be sitting, it will be plenty sharp and clear, and it also has an aspect ratio more suitible to a computer monitor. The 1920x1080 will be wider.
