I have been trying to find a decent monitor to use with my Macbook for a little while. I was kinda sold in a 20" Dell one as it was $329.99 cdn and had HDCP and all that jazz. However, I wanna put this in my room, and I would like to be able to use my DVD player/PS2/360/PS3(when I get one) with it as well. And the option to watch TV on it would be groovy as well. So now I am looking at some LCD TV's to fill the gap. There is this Samsung 19" one that I can get for $495 cdn http://www.futureshop.ca/catalog/pr...665000FS10080144&catid=23515&logon=&langid=EN http://www.samsung.com/ca/products/tv/lcdtv/lns1951wxxaa.asp It doesn't have the 1500:1+ contrast ratio (it has 700:1) that the 26" version does but the resolution is higher and the price is half so It has DVI as opposed to HDMI which kinda sucks, and apparently the DVI can't be used with a computer, you need to use the VGA. Or There is http://www.samsung.com/ca/products/tv/lcdtv/lns2341wxxaa.asp?page=Features which is $799.99 but has a 3000:1 contrast, HDMI and PC input but has lower resolution and is an extra $350 after tax (oww) I figure some of the technophiles around here might know a thing or too or have some experience in using a TV as a monitor. Stat wise, this one looks as good as my 19" Viewsonic monitor that is hooked up to my PC, and I love that thing. Are there any issues with using a TV with a laptop? Thanks in advance.
