Question Re: Help Tv Or Monitor....

How about the FEATURES that one has over the other. So is the Max Resolution for a tv better than a MONITOR. also I've NOTICED that the TV have HDMI ports..For pic quality????.Like a Monitor has a Memory card reader,USB hub,DVI-D and Analog signal inputs.For an example So far the DELL UltraSharp 2407WFP is comparable to the same size TV in price I've been looking at.The Dell 2407 along with some other monitors has 2downstream USB 2.0 ports,and a 9 in 2 media card reader,plus 2 more USB 2.0ports.??what that means I have know clue.. but I'm takeing that a TV doesn't...Info is VERY appreciated from a NEWBIE....So are their VITAL features the Monitor will have that the TV won't.etc ...thanks...

Any monitor though, with a tuner card for your PC, will work excellent for your needs.

PS: Don't look for a USB hub in your monitor...
Widescreen is the way to go. You may not like them for some reason, but they do show an overall larger picture and therefore eliminate the need for having two 4:3 aspect monitors, just by getting a larger sized widescreen.

To the op, heres a nice screen that wont break the bank, and no its no a crappy monitor and dont let others tell you otherwise, i have a 19" one myself. - Acer AL2216Wbd Black 22" 5ms DVI Widescreen LCD Monitor with HDCP support 300 cd/m2 700:1 - Retail

And also wide-screen, fits our view more naturally. Our eyes, look at things, at a wide perspective.
