    im looking into getting a mac pro, but the screens are way overpriced in my opinion. I have a samsung 23" LCD. How would this work? would there be a resolution that would work perfect with this screen? any pros or cons on using a tv as your screen on your computer?

    I use a Samsung 204t and I am very happy. They make a few different types of displays. I always buy the 't" series they are the higher grade.

    Using a Samsung 215TW, works great, want bigger

    I have the Samsung 215TW attached to a MBP... works great but I use two dual 24" monitors at work (Windows) and I'm itching to get a single 24" or 30" for home too now.

    I had a Samsung 941BW and it was great until I upgraded to a 24" Acer X241WSD which is amazing (I haven't experienced an ACD so I can't compare).

    I recently purchased a 24" Samsung 245BW, and it works great in WinXP, but by Friday, I'll have my first Mac (Mac Pro), and it should work great there too, as it has a built in DVI port.

    I'm using a 245BW on my Mac Mini. And it's awesome. Enjoy!

    I've got the HP w2007 hooked up to my MBP. Picked it up at Wal-Mart and its beautiful. DVI interface too. Not a single dead or stuck pixel and things look great on it.

    But as to your tv question. What kind of tv are you talking about? Usually the refresh rates really limit what you can do with it.
