    Hi

    I am at university, so obviously want to spend as little money as possible, and my room isnt that big. I am looking for a monitor that is about 24", would prefer 1080P. This is mainly for the PS3, I am not sure whether a TV tuner is vital, as I could get PlayTV to watch TV through the PS3, am I right here? Any suggestions on what to get?

    Had a look at this one at tescos

    UMC 21.6" Full HD LCD TV with built-in Freeview - Tesco.Direct

    and this monitor

    Fujitsu Siemens 23 3230T Wide TFT Monitor - Misco.co.uk


    What would be my best bet?

    Thanks

    The Fujitsu for me. Purely personal opinion, based on the name brand having a little LCD experience. And size.

    I imagine the processing within the UMC is really not up to much, and would kind of negate the value of the TV tuner, due to poor quality. However, I have NOT seen either in action, so my opinion could be absolutely worthless :)

    Are there any other monitors you would reccommend? Would PlayTV work fine with one of these compyter monitor styles? Bit torn on the UMC one, it seems to get a lot of mixed reviews
