Default new monitor/tv

Hey... does anyone have suggestion for a sweet monitor/tv.

I need it to be like 17-21 inches. I really want it to be HDTV ready. It can be svideo for the Monitor part. Also I'd like it to be 1080i if possible. Price Range would be under 500 bux.

Thanks for any suggestions

Jared

Hmm, Office Depot/Max had a cool 27" LCD TV for 600 after rebates. It looked like a plasma, but was LCD. I think it was a Olevia.

Dell's 21" Ultrasharp Flat Panel is probably the best bang for the buck. I believe it has a decent 12ms response time, and all sorts of goodies, usb, dvi, tv out, rotating view, 1620x1280 resolution, and should be had for about 400 on ebay, give or take shipping. if you live near a big city like San Francisco then use www.craigslist.org to search for a local private seller under the eletronics link. Saves on shipping.
