    Screen for wall mounting

    Got a room where I want to put a screen onto the wall for displaying Powerpoints etc. Any recommendations for a decent screen, not too costly, that could be mounted onto a bracket on the wall. Doesn't need to be interactive.

    I was thinking perhaps a large Samsung / LG LCD monitor but not sure if it'd be decent enough?

    If funds and space allow for it I would personally go for a larger screen size than 32". Found that these sometimes are a bit on the small size for displaying info on.

    We have 42" LG plasma TVs for our digital signage. Think they where provided by - Dolphin Media
    Dolphin Media Audio Visual Specialists Birmingham, London

    Had no problems with our displays and theres plenty of room on them to display information.

    If you want to do this properly then buy a commercial panel, lcd/plasma tv's and normally monitors won't be warrantied for this type of use.

    The LG one is a Commercial Display, is it not? Genuine question.

    LG M3204C Large Format Display - 32" Widescreen Monitor - LG Electronics UK


    Says on their site:
    Yes - This Commercial Display contains leads only in certain parts or components where no technology alternatives exist in accordance with existing exemption clauses under the RoHS Directive.

    Indeed it is which means the warrnaty won't be invalidated by it being on for much longer everyday than typically for a monitor.

    Those don't seem badly priced either. Do you have a supplier you normally use for them?

    I used to be the supplier! the wholesaler is anders and kern, and they will be able to put you in touch with a reseller in your area.

    I have used several, the SMS func brackets Flatscreen Wall Mounts | A+K UK Ltd have been by far the best value for money, but unicol Tilting wall mounts - Wall Brackets - Mounting Solutions 31" to 50"are by far the best for security and strength, but be ready for arm/leg removal to pay for them.
