Please refrain from shooting me down in flames if this topic has been covered exhaustively...i'm new. I currently have a pc (not a constable) in bedroom but no tv. Problem is the wife now wants a telly(not savalas). There is not enough room for both.. The research began in earnest..... Do I replace my 15 inch lcd monitor(4:3) for a 17 inch lcd tv(16:9) Are lcd tvs/monitors basically the same with the exception of tuners/styling? Does anyone have a philips 17pf9946? Progressive scan and high def sound interesting. Also this is about the right price mark £450. The spec of the philips seems to meet all my needs or should I go down another route? Why is there so much choice? Indecision seems to be my middle name.. Any suggestions are appreciated..
