32" 1080p Monitors

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
A new flight simulation game is coming out and since Im not doing a tri-monitor setup due to limited space and the bezels I find annoying, Id like to trade in my Hanns-G 28" 1080p monitor for a 32" 1080p monitor.

The cheapest one on new egg was over $1000 when my budget is sub-$1000. There is one 32" LCD monitor well within my budget, but its 1080i and I've been told by my brother who knows more about monitors to avoid all but 1080p.

Sometimes I see it say HDTV so Im worried that I may be getting a 32" TV LCD widescreen instead of a 32" LCD Monitor, since the pixels are too large on the TV.

Could someone point me in the right direction for where I find a website that offers 32" LCD Monitors? Perhaps amazon.com? Help me out.

I picked up a 1080p 32" sony bravia tv at bestbuy for 450 bucks. just need a dvi -> hdmi cable. probably overpaid a bit but nowhere near the 1000 bucks your talkin about.

LCD displays that are over 28" are almost always going to be one of two things.

1) 1440/1600p resolution ($800+)
2) 1080p + Designed to be used as a television, not a computer monitor


I honestly haven't heard of a 1080i display since 2007 or so.

If you're going to go with a large format display for gaming, and movies, go with a plasma. Cheaper, less ghosting, better contrast, deeper blacks etc.

I bought my Panasonic 42" 1080p for $530 shipped on sale back in January.

If you go with either the 32"+ LCD (1080p) or plasma, expect that you won't be able to use it as well as a regular display designed to be used with a computer. The text isn't quite as sharp due to the low resolution to size of the screen ratio. That's not to say text is unreadable, it's just not as fine or clear as on a display with a reasonable resolution to size ratio ie 20"-27" = 1080p/1200p, 27"+ = 1440p/1600p

Well if the OP is talking about a 32" 1080p monitor being $1000+ then idk about you but I'm happy so spend ~$400 and get exactly the same AND an extra (TV tuner)....


Whats the issue with that.
