32" 1080p Monitors - Page 2

post #11 of 21
I use a 32" LG TV as a monitor since watching videos and playing games is really all I do on my pc, It works well enough.

Whats the issue with that.
I'm pretty sure the OP just did a search in the monitor section for displays over 28" and found the IPS models, that's why they were so expensive. Seeing as how there are no computer monitors over 28" that aren't IPS or 1600p.

Sure the OP can weigh it up nicely then if he sees some @ ~$400. If not just get a TV. Thats all I'm saying... I used one for a while and it was fine but just too big didn't want 32" and I wanted it as a permanent TV.

I've got mine hooked up to the Directv box and the pc. Unfortunately their are times when I want to watch tv and use the pc. So mine is obviously temporary until I can purchase a few monitors. As far as quality goes, my 32 inch LG ips looks pretty good for the time being.

Well I guess what Im looking for is a larger monitor, thats well under $1000, yet still has the tiny pixels necessary for showing text on forums and the internet in high quality.

I reckon I might go with a TV but would I need a high resolution for it to work as my monitor for my PC?

I checked out the LG E5300 on Amazon.com

I am just not entirely sure if this would meet me criteria. I really should do some research on monitors/tv's prior to buying them. I bought the Hanns-G by going by my gut and was not disappointed at all since I started with a 22" but the Hanns-G only made me greedier for an even larger monitor, and now that I got a brand new ATI 6970 GPU, I want to see me get my moneys worth out of the new GPU.

Ill probably ask my brother, he knows a lot more about monitors and tv's than me, Ill have him go over this thread.

Are you sure you got the IPS version? I remember reading about a debacle with LG manufacturing that same model of TV with both IPS and VA panels. I guess some people got angry when they found out theirs weren't the IPS flavor.

Well like I've mentioned above, if you buy a 32"+ display that is meant to be a television (which they all are) then of course the text won't be nearly as crisp as a computer monitor. Imagine a 5x7 photo being blown up to twice the size or more, certain things would be slightly blurry or not as crisp as the original.

I can read text on my plasma OK, but it's not nearly the same quality as on my 25". With that said, movies and games look fantastic on it. I would just never use it for regular computer use or internet browsing (aside from watching youtube, which I do).

edit: try bringing a laptop to Worst Buy or walmart, and ninja-ing it to a TV on display to test for yourself. They may even help you do it. Although that may not be the best option, as few laptops support 1080p displays :-\\

Oh yeah, that was a huge mess. Some are IPS some are VA. The only way to tell is the serial number or look at the pixels with a magnifying glass. Really pissed me off. My LG turned out not to be the IPS so I sent it back to amazon hoping they would send an IPS in return. No luck. Of course I could have gone to worst buy and hand picked it but I would have payed tons more money. But it turns out the VA really isn't all that bad. If youre not going to be too picky, the LE5300 is a pretty good bang for the buck. But don't settle if you want the higher quality and are willing to pay for it.

Not sure what you are talking about... unless you are comparing 1080 @ 25" vs 1080 @ 32" either way. I use a 37" plugged in via HDMI and my text is plenty crisp

Even at the 2.5 feet I sit from it.

I currently using a 32" SONY BRAVIA as a primary monitor and love it. No regrets about HDTV 32inch I purchased for Gaming Rig.
