Default New LCD 23"...

Hey all First Post here..

Want to get a Widescreen LCD. Not sure if it even a smart option.
Was orriginally looking at the Dell 2005FPW 20.1"

Then I was thinking. This thing could double as a Bedroom TV as well.
Was thinking Widescreen do to productivity. I'm always multi tasking and comparing sites and such, Burning DVD's in the background, downloading, Azuerus.
The price of these thing and some of the quality issues kinda bothers me though.

So I found this HD LCD monitor from Phillips: Here

16 ms response time
Brightness : 500 cd/m2
Contrast Ratio : 450:1
High-definition LCD WXGA display, 1366 x 768p

Best of all!! Only $649 on Amazon

Not a heavy gamer. Do play some though. HL2, Doom3 and a couple of others from time to time. But not much

Tell me what you think.

Not the greatest resolution or contrast ratio, but looks pretty cool and a good price.
I\'m happy with it.

You can get a 19" monitor with 4ms response time for about $200 cheaper.
