    Hi All
    At present I am using a Samsung 17 Widescreen monitor which I am very happy with,However,having just bought GT4 for the Playstation,I need /want a widescreen LCD TV to replace the Samsung so I can connect said Playstation and also use it as a Computer Monitor.
    Can someone tell me what a minimum spec would be for an LCD TV for this kind of use,I will also play a few DVD's via the computer.
    Thanks
    Alan

    That sounds like an US American spec to me. The European version does not have any digital inputs.

    Does that mean it would be un-usable in europe or just hard to get one shipped over? :D

    Not enough information to know whether US spec will accept European voltages, 50Hz and PAL support and european analogue tuner settings.

    I wouldn't like to risk the freight even if the specs and import costs checked out OK.
