I ended up buying a Samsung 23" plasma HDTV that had a monitor input on the back. I use this as a television, and a computer monitor at the same time. After working on photos on this puppy, it's soooo hard to go back to my 17" monitor on my lap top. The colors on the Samsung are just stunning and the blacks are the best.
If you're trying to save money, this might be a good bet as your monitor can act as double duty and also be your television
Just one thought, but then again, I live in a 25' travel trailer, so everything has to pull double duty.
