Lcd Monitor Or Tv

Which one would provide a higher quality picture and overall performance, a lets say 24" wide screen lcd monitor with a tv tuner, or the same size lcd tv, high def most likely, and no tv tuner. The monitors tend to be more expensive, is that because they provide over all better resolution, if not, then which is better? This is because i was looking on either buying a tv tuner and nice monitor or a tv and hooking up my pc to it and want to know which one would be better.

Cleaning Lcd Monitor

I was just wondering what the best solution (liquid cleaner) would be best for cleaning an lcd such as an lcd monitor or laptop. I have some expo white board cleaner, but it doesnt really say whats in it, and i know lcd's dont like ammonia, so i wont use standard glass (windex) cleaner. Its hard to find a solution thats specific for lcd's and the only one ive seen so far is in a pack of like 3 microfiber cloths (which i have been one using to wipe it off) but their some stuff on it that a cloth wipe just wont get off.

Lcd Hdtv Used As Monitor

I am considering buying a lcd hdtv to use as both a tv and a monitor. Recently bussincess depot had an acer 32" tv/monitor for can$1, 300, but they have discontinued it. So i have gone to other stores and were introduced with a variety of lcd hdtvs which the salesman said can also be used as monitors. I wanted to ask your opinions on whether there is any disadvantages on using a lcd tv as a monitor and switching back and forth between tv and monitor. Also do these high definition tvs (hdtvs) have a sharper image quality?

Lcd Monitor Flashing

I got this 24" lcd monitor here and have a problem with it. When i got it, i hooked it up and i would get no input on the screen from any source (vga/dvi/component). The "no cable source" thing would come up with a weird flashing behind it (like the backlight flashing). Anyway, i (stupidly) got someone to open the screen up and saw the inverter had two blown caps, so replaced them. Now when they opened the screen up, they forgot to undo a connection and it totally ripped off (see images). As you can see, there are some pins broken completely. I managed to connect it back together, ignoring the four or five snapped pins. So put the screen back together, not expecting much. Plugged it in and guess what, i get a picture! (Probably corrected from fixing the inverter). So i can see and run windows fine from this screen. Yet i still get the constant flashing and there are blotches around the screen with different coloured pixels. I am thinking the blotches are appearing because of the dead pins. Now what gets me is the flashing. Is that a dead backlight or something?

To describe it in more depth: it flashes a few times a second, so its really quick. Its like a halogen dying. When it flashes, it doesnt flash off, but flashes to a low brightness. When i turned the brightness from 100 down to 0, the flashing almost completely stopped (flashed once every minute or so). So what i want to know:

1. Whats causing the flashing?
2. Would the funny blotches on the screen be from the pins?
3. What board is that that has been snapped (highlighted in red). What is it called? How hard are they to find?

I mean the pins dont bother me, as if worst comes to worst i can simply remove the pins completely and solder the wires straight onto the board. Its just, i dont want to do that if the flashing will still be there.

Is 3d Possible At 30 Hz ? On A 60hz Lcd Monitor ?

I've seen a number of articles popping up regarding the use of 3d in various games, but they all state that it requires a 120hz monitor for it to work (the newer samsung display i believe). Is there any real reason why it can't be done on a normal 60hz lcd monitor? Ie the vid card calculates two perspectives at 30hz each, alternating each perspective each frame?

Yes i know the effective image frame rate would only be 30fps maximum, but you're still seeing 60hz refresh from the monitor. How can this be any worse than simply playing a game that sits around 30fps anyway?

Possible problem with potential ghosting? (On lower/older spec lcd's)

Xbox On Lcd Monitor

I'm in the market to get some kind of lcd monitor. The problem is. The ones i've looked at don't have the red, white and yellow inputs that the xbox uses to hook up to tvs. So far, the only options to remedy this, that i know of are. A vga box, which i have absolutely no idea what that means. And a tv tuner box. Now, from what i understand, with the tv tuner, if you get a really crappy, cheap one, the resolution goes to crap and you can only really use a tiny portion of the screen with any amount of clarity. Does this go the same with a vga box? Are there any other option? I'm not really looking to blow alot on this piece.

Using Samsung Lcd Tv As Monitor

Connecting Lcd Tv As Monitor

I am seeking help in connecting my lcd tv as my second monitor. Let me explain the scenario and specifications. My specifications

One lcd monitor 17 inch (samsung)

One lcd tv 22in hd ready (samsung)

Inbuilt video adapter with hdmi and vga port (ati radeon)

Nvidia graphics card with vga and dvi port. The scenario:

Right now i connected my 17 inch monitor to my graphics card with vga port since the monitor does not have dvi port. And the display is with resolution of 1440 x 900. Since i am a web designer it is difficult for me to work in a 17inch monitor. What i want :

I am planning to connect my 22 inch lcd tv as second or maybe primary monitor. It has both vga and hdmi port. The tv is just hd ready (720pi). The problem

I wanted to connect my lcd tv with my computer (win 7 x64 ). I already was using it by buying a hdmi to dvi converter and connecting to my graphics card but the resolution was not standard. If i remember it is 1280—720. While my second monitor is 1440 x 900. The possibilities. Since i have on inbuilt graphics adapter as well as my graphics card. Is it possible to connect both in different graphics adapter and use ? For example 17in in graphics card and 21in using hdmi in my inbuilt. What do you guys suggest if you are in my legs. I badly need two monitors and i think its waste to buy a 22 in lcd monitor for this as the tv sits idle in my room without anyone watching it or should i use the both in same graphics adapter with the available resolution.

Liteview Lcd Monitor Drivers

I have a liteview lm15w lcd widescreen monitor. Its capable of going up too 1280x800 resolutions but because i do not have the drivers for it, windows see it as a standard lcd monitor which means that my video card cannot apply widescreen resolutions to it. I have googled for the past couple of weeks trying to find drivers for this thing and maybe some work around, but nothing. I can't even find liteview's manufacturer website!

Any ways to get some generic drivers or trick my card/windows into thinking its an lcd so i can apply the widescreen? I can't stand being stuck on 1024x768 on a 15 inch!

Lcd Monitor Power Problem

I've have a problem with an lcd monitor. The on/off button will freeze in the on position (green light on), such that when i push the button, it will not turn off. Most of the time i'm not even aware that it's happened, until i reboot the computer. When the screen goes black, just after the windows xp logo and just before the "welcome" screen, it remains black with the power light still on. When i unplug it and plug it back in, the screen comes up just fine. This seems to also happen randomly when the screen goes black just before switching to a screen saver. I've tried to disable all running programs with msconfig to see if a program was causing this. I was almost convinced that my trend micro anti-virus was doing it, as i seemed to be able to replicate and stop the problem by enabling or disabling the program. So i uninstalled the program, but now i noticed that it's happening again. Although i can't pinpoint the problem, it seems to be just predictable enough that i'm reluctant to think that it's an electrical issue. Any ideas?

Good Brand Lcd Monitor

Well my dad needs a new monitor. His old 19" crt had broken down so he downgraded to a crap crt 17" that had been laying around and been using it for the last 2 months or so. I figured with christmas coming around the corner it would be a good opportunity to buy a new lcd for my dad. Now what my dad is using it basically as typical user but just add casual gamer to the list. He plays anything from flight simulator to silent hunter iii to counter-strike source/hl2, with a hint of trucking sims on the side. A few others but mostly cs:s/hl2 and flight simulator that i have caught him playing lol. Basically i need a good brand monitor about a 19" or 20" with gamer type specs. Widescreen is good for flight simulator but optional. Anyone got any good recommendations?

Staples Vs Samsung 19 Lcd Monitor

So yesterday i had money in hand and all ready to buy the samsung 931b 19" lcd monitor on sale at staples but then right next to it i saw their own brand and it looked better to me than the samsung. Before i would have never considered buying a staples brand monitor, after all what do they know about electronics they sell office supplies for christ sakes but it looked really good. The colors were very deep and rich the background was brighter and the text was darker easier to read.

In comparison the samsung looked faded, dull. Plus the staples comes with built in speakers (which i know must sound pretty bad but hopefully when you hook up your own you can turn those off) and it comes with a dvi cable which the samsung doesn't. And it looks like the specs are the same and when on sale it will be $30. Less than the samsung. So am i crazy for considering the staples 19" s9106 lcd monitor? I read on here that most monitors are made by lg. So maybe the staples one is too and therefore it might be ok. Anyone have any personal experience with the staples monitor or know anything about them?

Here are the specs. Staples 19" sp9106 lcd monitor. Staples own monitors combine high-end features such as an ultra clear screen, built-in speakers, dvi input and even three usb ports to offer a superior viewing experience.

19" active matrix tft lcd
1280 x 1024 native resolution
Contrast ratio 700:1
Brightness 300 cd/m2
Response time 8ms
Three built-in usb ports
Dvi cable included
3-year mfr. Limited warranty

Using 32 Inch Samsung Lcd Hdtv For A Monitor

Using the 32inch samsung lcd hdtv for a monitor? What do ya guys think? Sure an arm and a leg needs to be sacrificed for it, i certainly cant afford it, but lets just assume you could afford it. How would it fare as a monitor? Staring at this enormous screen in front of you, playing call of duty 2 on that would make me drool.

Make Lcd Computer Monitor Into A Tv Screen

I am wondering how i can make my lcd computer monitor into a t. V. Screen? I am looking at a few monitors. One has hdmi and one just has dvi and vga. I have a dishnetwork box without hdmi so i am using component. I was wondering if all i would need to do is get a hdmi to component cord and plug it in? Or do i have to mess with the setting or other things? Also i heard you can get hd channels over the air with a hd antenna. Is that true? And how would it look on my monitor if it can support 1080p?

Hd 2600 Xt And Connecting Hdmi Lcd Monitor

I have a hp w2207h lcd monitor with hdmi input. When using a dvi->hdmi converter and hdmi cable the catalyst driver claims that the monitor is a hdtv and only 720p, 1080p etc. Modes are available. When forcing 1680x1050 60 hz the monitor shuts down. Other 1680x1050 lcd works fine. The hp w2207h also works fine with nvidia quadro 110 in xp. I suspect vista is too eager to detect hdtvs here ?

Any suggestions?
