    I really need to know if this is a nice monitor for gaming/using Mac Mini. I can't seem to find any review on it though 'cause I think it's pretty new. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks.

    This is an LCD TV not a computer LCD. Therefore the resolution is going to be low (bad if you use it up-close), and it's only got RGB in, so no DVI. (It's got about the same resolution as a 13" iBook, but it's 23", you get the picture ;) (pun)

    It says the resolution is 1366x768 so isn't that excellent? :confused:

    So you don't suggest buying this HDTV for using my Mac Mini on it also?

    Nope. You won't be happy with results. It is not meant for computer screen type viewing.

    Only if you are sitting 3 meters away, like with a normal TV, then the you can use it to watch movies/dvd's and they would good. But using this upfront as a computerscreen, it isn't very relaxing and you can count the pixels...

    Thanks for your help! I will now most likely just use my 19" monitor for my Mac Mini and just play games on an HDTV if I actually decide to buy this HDTV. I still need more opinions though. =)

    I could never use a such low resolution on such a big screen, I'd get a headache after a few minutes of use.

    But using it for movies and games would be great!

    Yeah, I'm glad you guys talked me into not using the HDTV for both playing games and using my Mac Mini. I'm think of wall-mounting this HDTV, but I don't feel like spending the cash yet. I can't find one review on this thing. I might have to wait a little bit for someone to post in this thread who actually has this Samsung or one similar to it.
