The only thing that puts me off using my TV as a monitor is the lack of resolutions being high enough. Looking at another £100 more for a screen that does 1980x1050.

Two 24 inch screens are a good option if you wall mount them. That way you have twice the pixels, although you will have to sit closer if you want to watch a movie properly.

Frankly a TV just doesn't really cut it as a PC monitor. I've tried it but it just doesn't work. You have to sit a while away from the screen and it's just not practicle.

A nice PC monitor is far superior. The right tool for the right job

That's cos the best screens available are 30" native maximum employed in monitors. These are darn expensive.

What an lcd tv manufacture does is take 20" screen technology and blow those pixels into bigger squares.

To prevent the blockiness as much as they can they employ "technology".

Tested 4x 32" Sony Bravia at the end of last week. Frankly I'm glad I got the Samsung LE32R87BDX.

Natives to x768, which gives a theoretical 720 (i.e. HD Ready not HD) - however, plug a computer into the hdmi and u can have x1080i. Done this on a mac and pc.

Sony's menus are quite nice tho.

Aye Sony's menu's are OK

Will say that Plasma is still far above LCD, not seen a large LCD that gives a picture anywhere near a plasma

Prefer LCD for HD myself. Ofc that depends on the unit. Most LCD's are stocked with shocking settings.
