    So my faithful Viewsonic 22 incher died on me a couple of weeks back. And after that it was the hard task of lugging the 42 inch Panasonic LCD that I have to the PC for any work, and then back to the TV room for TV viewing.

    Now I am sick of carrying the TV to and fro, and the Viewsonic is out of warranty, so now I am faced with a dilemma.

    Whether to buy a dedicated monitor for PC usage ( ~ 10k for a BENQ 24 inch 16:9) or buy a conventional TV and run it thru HDMI ( ~ 12k for a Panasonic 24 incher 16:10 ).

    My issue is that I don't really like the new 16:9 displays ( Too wide for my liking ), and not sure if the display on a LCD TV would be clear enough.

    The reason I am considering a TV is because the PC might not be needed in a few months time, so atleast the LCD TV could be re used as a TV.

    Other option - Getting a AOC 15.6 inch, 1336x768 monitor for 2,500, however with VGA input, which I don't have!

    Yelp!

    So that is an added option, however what's your opinion on using a TV as a display?

    am not too sure about the display ratios of the TV's..still using ol faithful M93 from Sony :p
    but i would say unless u want to get rid of the computer itself the monitor would be a better option.

    The first one i really liked for the price, however sadly it does not have HDMI input. only component for HD.

    The second one is above my budget.

    I saw a BENQ full HD on flipkart for 10018/- 24 inches. The plan is to get something similar in 12-13,000/- probably a TV. There is a full HD LCD by Panasonic or Toshiba in that much.

    By the way, anyone having any idea on a brand called Funai?

    Getting a 32 inch Full HD with HDMI input for 16,500 and 32 inch LED for 19,500/- I saw the demo piece, display not too bad, though could do with some more backlighting.

    Got a Funai 32 inch HD ready LCD for 16,500/- It has USB playback, and I am searching for a USB software update which allows it to record Television to a USB drive!!!

    Resolution is low, but is getting my work done, and a 32 inch TV is a decent size as well!
