Actually, those don't look like standard timings to me.
The 1920x1080i should be 60Hz, for instance.
I drive my Dell 2405FPW with the EDID suggested timing of:
ModeLine "1920x1200 at 60" 154.0 1920 1968 2000 2080 1200 1203 1209 1235
The timing is more a function of the controller that they put into
the monitor than the actual LCD screen itself.
