One thing you should always remember is that the people there are salespeople first.

I like using retrovo for stuff like head units, TVs, and the like. They have a nice way of presenting everything about a product, including reviews.

umm how about a 25'X25', you can use it as a dvi monitor, a wireless monitor, or a display board. you can get them from 3'x1', to extremely huge, i have seen them up to 50x50, but have only had the hell of installing a 25x25 so far luckly.

they are pure RGB led, no back light and can be seen day or night.

SOURCE, Plus i work in the sign industry. we got to watch a football game on the 25x25. you have to be at least 20' from it to actually see the picture clear though.

Do you find 37" good for Gaming and computing or is it sometimes too much head turning and pixels too big?

I was looking at this one at costco, Vizio for $500, but they also have Hannspree, never heard of them.

I'm ALSO considering getting two 30" but at that price level, bigger monitors like a 40"+ comes into question, but I don't know if that is going overboard and what would be more practical from a computing standpoint, and gaming (qualitY)

"
+ or maybe 2 Hannspree 32" ($700) (can a 460 can handle it?)
"Contrast Ratio: 10,000:1 (X-Contrast)
Brightness: 500cd/m²
Response Time: 6ms

32 Inch 1080P is OK. But High resolutions are sharper in smaller screens because the pixels are smaller. Look at it like this. open a pic. Then slowly zoom it to make it bigger. The bigger the picture gets, The blurrier it gets.

I have a 60 Inch LG LCD in my living room. I always hookup my rigs to it once in awhile but it has it's own HTPC. It's absolutely viewable and it's beautiful. But My 26 monitors is much smoother, crispier and sharper.
