    PC monitors or tv

    i have 2x 22" widescreen monitors i use on one of my pc's.....

    now both of the fuckers have dead pixels after only 11 month and 25 days of use ...ish...

    shop have just said bring em back for an instant swop only you will need to choose summat diff as we dont do them anymore....

    so 2 x new 22" monitors or a nice samsung 32" widescreen hd lcd telly......

    I guess it depends on what you use it for really. If it was in the bed room and you watch a lot of films on it then i'd say the bigger TV. But if its your main PC and you'll be sat fairly close to it then i'd say 2 x 22" as you'll know already that 2 monitors are better than one plus text will be nicer on the monitors when you are browsing the web etc

    I'd def stick with the monitors then, I had my PC plugged into my Samsung 32" TV and it was OK from the sofa with a wireless keyboard but you couldn't browse the web on it for hours at a time.

    I use a 27" tv as my monitor now but its a pain in the arse might just be the make (goodmans) but ive got screen burn in and its doing my tis in

    only appears over certain colours but if you leave something on the screen for too long then it gets imprinted

    monitors have a much better resolution and are designed for "close up* viewing

    ok i ended up with 2 x 22" samsung syncmaster T220's

    they have a 2ms response time and 20000:1 contrast also came with both connectors ( d-sub and dvi )and both cables and that was nice..

    picture is superb, clear and bright so i am very happy

    thanx to all....
