I've been reading with interest some of the talk around here in regard to the limitations of LCD TVs when they are fed a PC signal. My own intention is to buy an LCD screen to be used as a standalone TV to start with, and then graduate to using it simply as a display to pump PC output to. It appears that the other threads are not too complimentary of the 1366x768 screens such as the Philips 9986 in the latter regards, so I went hunting around to find alternatives. An interesting one I've seen is on the Iiyama site (http://www.iiyama.co.uk) there is the ProLite C300WT - a 30" LCD with built-in TV tuner. The resolution is 1280x768 which is not the highest resolution out there and it doesn't have DVI or in-built Freeview, BUT :- * 16msec response time * SCART, Video, S-Video, Component Video, VGA inputs See full spec at : - http://www.new-monitors.co.uk/fulldetail.asp?ID=98 It even comes with a driver presumably to help configure your PC to the monitor. Best of all though is price - the above lists it at less than a grand which for a 30" screen I think is very good (not sure about VAT whether it's included or not). The Iiyama blurb says "It provides the utmost viewing comfort for both 16:9 and 4:3 formats. No matter if it is TV, video or DVD the 30" screen will present it perfectly!" Reading between the lines, that says to me "yeah we know that there are problems with bigger resolutions when trying to drive them with PCs so here's our monitor which is slightly less resolution but at least it'll work properly without having to muck about with PowerStrip if you're going down the HTPC route" If you want a bigger screen and DVI then you need to pay twice as much for one of these :- http://www.new-monitors.co.uk/fulldetail.asp?ID=100 Am I missing anything here ? People are going for the big brands like Panasonic, Sony and Philips, but let me tell you I've owned an Iiyama CRT monitor before and I thought it was quality kit.
