Does anyone have that set up? Do you like it?
I'm not a fan. You get a higher resolution on a 24" so you get more useable space on the 24" and the picture doesn't look as stretched. Only time I would ever use one as a monitor is if I am using it as a tv and sitting a fair distance away from the screen.
for more info:
can sit far away
resolution isn't anything special
have to sit farther away
i have a machine that i use mostly as a media server hooked up to my HDTV.
1920x1080 resolution might not be amazing, but it's good enough to display web pages and video at a nice high res for couch-distance viewing. good for a media center PC as well.
It looks perfectly fine on a 32". Text is easier to read, everything is still crisp.
If you read the thread above from the people who actually own a TV as a display they are all happy with it.
I will never go back to a regular monitor. For gaming and movies 16:9 > 16:10.
I sit arms length from the TV and it looks superb.
I had mine hooked up to my 720p plasma for a while, it was alright when you were sitting about 8 or 10 feet away. Not much room to do shit though. It was only for video and light internet browsing. I wouldn't just buy a HDTV as a monitor though.
i use my 40" lcd as a monitor vista media center. sadly it is only a 720p lcdhdtv, so i'm stuck with 1366x768
Dell 30" monitors are only $899 in their outlet store right now
They were on sale a couple weeks ago for $799. That's CHEAP and they are pretty good monitors.
