    I'm in the market for a screen for my bedroom. It will be connected to the PC for general PC use and movies.

    If you think I should go a little higher for something good then please tell me.

    Thanks a lot,

    Phil.

    Well, neither one is true 16:9, 1280x768 resolution....

    The tosh is true 16:9, and it's cheaper... buy and try... it's mail order so you have a right of return :)

    If you want to stick to £500, get the tosh, if you can afford more, go for one of the new panels, there is a new tosh, I got, theres a thread about it on here... the tosh 27wl56 I think it is

    I just looked around for the Toshiba 27WL56 and that is only 1280x720, so not true 16x19. I'm willing to spend quite a bit more now, but only if it's worth it... oh, and it better make coffee.

    1280x720 is not true 16x19, but is true 16x9. I think you're getting mixed up with 1280x768 which is 15x9.

    In fact, you're probably better off with a 1280x720 screen than 1366x768 due to the fact that HD stuff of the future will be either 720P (1280x720 progressive scan) or 1080i.

    Having said that, this Tosh doesn't have an HDCP enabled DVI port, so your only HD source is your PC.

    So what would you recommend to me then? I need upwards of 16x9 in that won't chop up true 16x9 movies.

    I also need HDCP enabled DVI (or vga) for playback of future HD discs via the PC. It will be solely for PC and movie use including graphic design.

    Phil.
