What's a "2.4MP monitor?"

A monitor whose resolution is around 2.4 million pixels.

And what "monitor" on the market has such a resolution? I know of none.

As posted by another, just multiply 1200 pixels height by 1920 pixels width = 2.304 Mpixels.

That's not 2.4MP. There is no monitor on the market with 2.4MP.

There's also nothing wrong with viewing images at 100% as that's the only way to tell how sharp your images are.

Nope; another, much more reliable method is to simply make a decently-sized print from it.

Nonsense. If you have a decent quality display you can much more easily determine the level of sharpness than in a print. The printing stage degrades image quality to a certain degree.. As it relates to sharpness, viewing a digital picture on your computer is like looking at a negative or slide with a loupe.

The typical monitor only has around 100 pixels/inch resolution. Some are higher. Printers often can exceed those resolutions. Inks and paper are critical elements in realizing that. Where monitors excel over printers is in contrast-ratio - which is much higher in the case of the typical monitor.

The ability of good monitors of today to show you the true sharpness of your images is not dependent on it being able to display the pixel density needed to produce high quality photographs. Two separate things.

Your words make very little sense.
