TV vs. monitor

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
In Australia the cost of a 26" LCD TV is about $1000. A 22" LCD monitor however for $450, so as I see it, a cheap way into Hi-Def. My question is, how would the price of a 24" monitor fit into this? would anyone know? And is 22" definitely the best price point, value etc. right now?

Yeah, the 22's are the price point of choice right now. You are looking at an extra $150-$200 for the 24".

More even. 22" are running at $220-300USD while 24" are at $500-650.

I have a 32" LCD 720i TV as my desktop monitor, it runs at 1366x768 and I love it. I dont have the money to drop a £1000 on a dell 30" so my tv will do for now. I also have a 19" flat screen as my second monitor.

I would say go for the TV as it doubles up as a TV, console and PC player.

My friend bought a 37" LCD HDTV and uses it as a monitor/tv. Only way I will ever get an LCD is if I go at least a 32" LCD HD

If you keep them seperate you will thank yourself for it later.

Use a 22"LCD (good value) for the PC and if you're looking at getting a HD TV get that when you can as a seperate purchase.
