    I am looking at buying a LCD TV for the Bedroom and saw the above in PC World,it is a LCD PC monitor with a tuner built in and also has a scart socket for £180(web price).
    Looking at the specs I can find very little to choose between this and the equivalent dedicated LCD TV apart from the price(approx £100).
    Can anybody see any downside to using this Monitor soley for TV viewing or in other words what is the difference between a LCD TV and a LCD Monitor with a built in TV tuner.
