> No, they said "monitor" like this ... Unless I am misunderstanding. Ah I see, it's a monitor in the sense it has no way of generating its own picture. However it is designed for much low resolution usage (like video), hence the HDMI and VGA (_not_ DVI I'd hazard). I would imagine this particular monitor is designed for hanging above a reception desk displaying videos of sporty people and special offers. Or for video games consoles perhaps. Also the native resolution of the panel could be lower, which is what you need to go by for PC use. This particular monitor will happily squash your larger resolution signal to fit its panel, but you'll end up with a blurred and generally rubbish-looking picture. >> Of course, if you're already using two monitors, you might want to go for two TFTs. > Two reasons why not... Fair enough, very good reasons! > But my store here will sell me a 32" LCD for $875 I really don't think you need to be spending that much money! Have a look at the Dell SP2309w, http://www.ebuyer.com/product/155584 (sorry, Google knows I live in the UK so I'm having a bit of trouble finding a US supplier). It's higher resolution than you have now, but in a smaller package. It also has some nonsense like a built-in webcam but as a panel it appears to get written up rather well. I'm sure there are others if you start looking at that range. Maybe someone here can suggest an online US-based PC hardware supplier with a decent reputation?
