I looking to replace my big 19" CRT Dell monitor which has served me well over the past few years. Man its a bulky thing!!!!
So I been looking at TFT screens and am thinking of buying something which is 20" and above, is widescreen and the main reason is so I can use it as a screen for the PC and also as a screen if i buy a 360 or ps3, which I am thinking of when the prices come down.
Does anyone know if I can use a next gen games console with a TFT. I pretty sure I can do it with a LCD screen from brands such as sony and samsung but am not sure if they are the way to go to use for PC monitors ( I know they all say PC input - but are they actually any good for PC applications?)
Am I also right in saying that the next gen consoles have an HDMI output for the best quality in video gaming so ideally I need one of those for ultimate gaming pictures?
If anyone can advise me on solutions or pitfuls of my ideas, that would be most gratefully appreciated. I dont have a particular budget in mind but dont want to spend more than Â£350 (GBP).
Yeh, It seems like looking at reviews. I keep coming back to this samsung screen, I have to admit it does look vey nice indeed. The review you posted was especially a good one which answered some questions I had about it. So thanks for that.
Its an LG LCD with tuner and nearly all the connections I could dream for.
Any chance of a second opinion. Apart from the contrast ratio. I dont see that much dfifference with the Samsung 226BW but I could be wrong.
It seems very good value for money. My only concerns are LG (not really heard much about them) and I still unsure about these LCDs which can also be used for PCs. Will I see a small difference or a large difference?
LG stuff breaks in around 10mins atfer being exposed to Oxygen in my experience.
*Slightly* off topic, sorry, but I hope this isn't true. Being from the southern hemisphere, I'd never really seen any LG kit in the shops before, so when I bought a new LCD TV last year I listened to the salesman's story about LG being the biggest electronics company in the world, and how that there are only a few major manufacturers of LCD screens and a lot of the other larger named brands actually had LG screens in them anyway and ended up buying one... ops:
