  • Best tv for computing?

    Hi all,

    I am planning my next pc build for Q4 and would like to turn my current one into a workstation I can use while im away from my desktop. Ive decided the best way to go would be to use the box with a new tv and wireless keyboard/mouse so I can browse while im in the laz-e-boy.

    Last time I tried output to a tv it looked rather crappy, I have a geforce 2 pro card in the machine im planning to do this with.

    Im looking for a good tv, it dose not matter if it is flat/LCD/wide screen, as long as it will display my computers output as well as the one from my directv box.

      If you have the money, get a rear-projection DLP. They are large but high-enough resolution to be usable, unlike normal TVs. A plasma would look best, but you'd have to be (1) rich to buy the TV, (2) rich to pay the power bill, (3) rich to buy an air conditioner to suppliment it, (4) rich to buy another one when the image burns in, and (5) rich to repeat the entire process as a result.

        I have seen the DLP TVs, and yes they have a great picture, but don't they have the same problem with screen burn in as any rear projection TV? Also, they are still almost as pricy as a plasma.

        As far as the plasma tvs...
        2) Really? They use more power than a normal tv?
        3) Really? I would have thought that they would have been reasonably cool since you can wall mount them. I hadn't noticed excessive heat with the ones in my local retail store.

        I was going to buy one in the next month or so, but I guess I need to do a little more research if these are the case>

            I believe DLP projections can burn in, but it takes a very long time compared to a plasma.

            Yes, plasmas are notorious for their power usage and heat.

              I agree with filbert1 on this one
