Use a 32" 1080p LCD TV for Monitor, or my U2410?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
*Update: Check post 8 for my amazing Newegg Open Box Results!
Ok, so I have the amazing Dell U2410 monitor and I love it. It's worked great so far and it's got an amazing picture.. I do miss having dual monitors though.

So, I took a small gamble today and went for a Newegg Open Box Deal. It was an amazing price if you look it up. I bought a JVC 32" LCD TV with both 1080p & 120 Hz for only $249.. Yes this is like a black friday price. it's got a 1920x1080p Resolution, 3 HDMI, Ipod Dock, Speakers.. Model is LT-32P510 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16889210078 and this is over $500-600 everywhere else online.

It's a badass Monitor, I hope there's nothing wrong with it being a open box and all. charges ipod even with TV off. It has lots of potential.. So should I game and use it for my new PC Monitor. or Keep my IPS Dell U2410 and use the JVC HDTV for my new TV in my room to replace my old one?

Well looking at the specs, it looks like an IPS display, so test it out side by side and see. You won't be able to do 120fps though, since it will just upscale 60hz.

youll find out when it arrives. When i got mine I found that sitting as close as i was to my 22" that the viewable area on this 32" screen really sux. Ive gotten used to it and dont freak out if the screen isnt responding or looking the way you want it to. There are a plethora of settings you get to go through to fix it!-not really- but anyway good deal on newegg. I almost hate that i bought this one but its good.

hahahaha

I just upgraded from my 24" to a 32" 1080P LG LCD....

I've had it for a week and a half. I have no regrets. No motion blur, everything is crisp. Anything bigger and the text/icons would look weird. I'm very happy with it. I use it for surfing, gaming and my TV as well. Mainly surfing though. I sit about 18" from it. I wish I would have gotten this in the first place.

A lot of people here use 1080 LCD TV's for Monitors huh?

I could save lots of money selling this U2410 and use part of that to get another 32 for my actual TV TV. lol

I used to, but the PPI is really low, so I got a 22"

So... this Open box from Newegg turned out AMAZING! The stand was never installed and still had the plastic on it and screws in unopened bag taped to the stand. None of the bags inside had been opened except for the one with the manual. The remote was untouched and in a sealed bag with batteries n all. This was basically brand new. I don't think whoever bought it even used it. Thanks Newegg!

I got the JVC 32" LCD TV with full 1920 x 1080p resolution, 120 Hz Refresh Rate, Built in iPod Dock (for music/video playback) charges the ipod with the tv on or OFF (awesome feature I didn't know it had) and all the other jazz for the low low price of $249.. what a STEAL!

I was a little worried about open box, can anyone recommend any programs or things I can use to test pixels and ghosting? something I can put to DVD? So far it's perfect. There's no dead pixels that I saw while watching a movie and pausing different color screens until I can find a better test. refresh rate is awesome. picture is crisp. and the speakers being 20w each instead of the usual 10w each makes the sound much better than most built in. Equalizer made me get great sound after i tweaked it to a flat V shaped setting.

SWEEET!

Are you using the HDMI input or PC-VGA?

I just bought a samsung 1080p 32" and my HDMI connection looked terrible, colors were all off, text looked strange.
