I need to decide on a new monitor and I think I have narrowed it down to these two. I don't do any gaming, just surfing the internet and email, etc. I do, however, use my computer for watching DVD movies from across the room, and I would like to hook a cable box to it also. Here's the deal - The Syntax Olyvia http://www.staples.com/Catalog/Browse/Sku.asp?PageType=1&Sku=577856 is cheaper, has a built-in TV tuner, but it seems to be lacking in the picture quality department. It should still display movies fine, but the max resolution is 800x600 . Wouldn't that look retarded on that big of a screen? (make my icons and sh!t all huge) The Dell 2005FPW http://accessories.us.dell.com/sna/productdetail.aspx?sku=320-4111&c=us&l=en&cs=19&category_id=2999&page=external definately has a better picture, but, being a widescreen won't the image be smaller vertically than the Syntax monitor? This wouldn't really affect widescreen movies, cause they would fill the screen, but for normal use I would have a smaller picture, right? The Dell costs a bit more, but I don't mind paying extra for more quality/features. If I get the Dell I would have to run the TV feed into the S-video input and run the audio into the line-in on the computer, not really a problem there. It seems like the Syntax is really a TV with a VGA input, and the Dell is a true monitor with a S-video input. Does anyone have any experience with either of these? Is there a way to make my picture look normal (like a 1024x768, etc.) even though the monitor will only display 800x600? Thanks for the help guys. P.S. I suck at linking.
