    I am looking to buy a plasma monitor for my computer I want a huge screen something like 37" to 42". Which one would be the best out there for solely computer use of course I would hook up my dvd player to it as well but mainly to be used as a computer monitor.


    Any Ideas ? I want to have a wide view without using the dual monitor setups...

    thanks

    If it's going to be used mainly for computer work for long periods of time, you'd be better IMHO off with an LCD rather than a plasma as you're going to have problem with image burn on a plasma from static images such as the windows task bar.

    I've got a plasma and have used it with a PC but never for more than a couple of hours.

    All large screen LCDs are high resolution, many of the plasmas are not. LCD will be better for your purposes.

    If you are looking for a "wide view" LCD, you may need to be clear what width you want to display in terms of pixels:- 1024, 1280, 1366, and generally 768 high.

    and now I have come to find out about DLP. So plasma and LCDs are out of my mind now. I hear samsung is comming out with a 1080p native resolution monitor. 5000:1 contrast ratio seems good

    what do you think about DLPS and computers

    samsung has dvi inputs and they explicitly talk about wide screen for computers.
