I'm trying to buy a new tv for my Dad and while I've researched online, I want to get input from tech-heads that I trust (the MR community). I'm looking for something that is around 42" and wall-mountable. I'm also looking into just purchasing a monitor, as oppossed to a tv set w/tuner and speakers, since my Dad has a comcast tuner and a seperate stereo receiver. He could also hook up his PB to the monitor. What are the pro's and con's for a tv vs. monitor? Does anyone have any suggestions as to what brand(s) to buy or stay away from? I've done some research into LCD vs plasma, but I'd also like to know of anyone's opinion. Thanks!
