    32" 720p TV vs 22" LCD Monitor

    Which would you use? I have a 32" HD TV on my wall which I could put on my desk instead of the 22" saving me £130.

    What you think, what are the chances of this working well with a 4850 and what resolution restrictions would I have?

    I know it can connect as the TV and card both have component inputs (4850 by way of included adapter).

    Any advice would be grateful

    stick with the 22" monitor, it will have a higher Res. and if sitting close the 32" will strain your eyes and neck. £130 is prob a wise investment.

    the 32" tv will be 1366x768 and the 22" will probably be 1680 x 1050

    Re: 32" 720p TV vs 22" LCD Monitor

    Hey Guys!!! I’m a bit confused as to what LCD Monitor to buy with a budget of £421 and which brand I should go for? I’ve got LG & BenQ playing on my mind, umm… not sure.I’m looking for a LCD Monitor that can meet the following requirements:

    1920 x 1200 resolutions
    Picture in picture feature, where I can view video from two sources at once, i.e. from a DVD player and from PC
    Should be user friendly
    I came across few models from the top brands at CheckCost UK. Let me know what u guys think…

    I wouldnt even consider a normal HDTV as a full replacement for a PC monitor - great for games and media, but it would be awful using the desktop and being productive...

    2408wfp Most are coming with the revised firmware which irons on the issues you mentioned.

    The TV vs Monitor thing, I would have a monitor for desktop apps and probably games. You'll probably get the best result that way and sitting up close to a 30"+ screen will be an aquired taste, especially when the resolution is low.

    You should check the BenQ G2400W or the E-Series (E2200HDA) which will be launched soon. They are Full HD 16:9 which is especially cool for watching movies, e.g. no black bars .

    Re: 32" 720p TV vs 22" LCD Monitor

    Aswell as the lower res you would need to check the response time of the 32" TV, if its a cheap one it'll be slow and that may show up in games. Plus not sure if I could handle looking at a 32" screen from 2 feet away.
