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.

Samsung Px2370 Led Or Hdtv 2333hd Lcd

Which monitor is better, samsung px2370 led or samsung hdtv 2333hd lcd? I want to hook up my ps3 on one of these monitors but don't know which one is better. Quality wise, which one is better?

I don't want an lcdtv, please. The scenario will be 2 monitors, dual screened on gtx260. One monitor will be for pc purpose and the other will be for ps3, but still gonna be dual screened if ps3 is off; also gonna put a 5. 1 home theater system or g51 5. 1, so, again with the question, which has better quality? Samsung px2370 led or samsung hdtv 2333 monitor?

Monitor Price Of Samsung, Lg 15.6 Inch

What is the price if samsung, lg and different other brand 15. 6 inch monitor?

Answer:-

Are you looking to purchase an lcd or a crt monitor? Crt monitors are really hard to find now and taking into consideration the current prices, it no longer makes sense because they are pretty much outdated and have been replaced by lcd monitors. And even if you look at lcd monitors, it won't be easy to find small monitors in the market now. A dell in1910n which is an 18. 5 inch monitor with a maximum resolution of 1366x768 pixels will cost you 6, 000 rupees according to the website under source. It's better you purchase a 20" monitor which will cost you around 6, 500 to 7, 000 rupees. Here's a small list of 20" monitors: http://www.Priceguide. In/monitor-size/20-inch/

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?

I can't post links because im a new user but its the acer p243waid and you can get it on newegg for 330$. But im willing to pay extra for quality of a bigger name brand. Any help plz? It kind of surprises me samsung wouldn't make a 24" monitor with glossy screen?

Using Samsung Lcd Tv As Monitor

I am in the market of getting a new computer. Though, i'm not a huge computer head, im getting one built for me that is going to be "decent". What i want to spend most of my money on is a monitor. I'm interested in this samsung lcd tv that has avg ( i think thats what its called) therefore it is able to be used as a monitor. My problem:

My friend who works at dell told me that the resolution won't be very crisp and it'll hurt my eyes. All in all, i need your opinions!

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

A Single 5870 Enough For A 30 Inch Monitor ?

About to order my new rig to coincide with the release of windows 7, i got most of what i want in there already figured out:

Phenom ii x4 965 (the 955 is only 20 bucks cheaper)
Msi 790fx-gd70
4 gb ocz black edition 8-8-8-24 1600
2 640gb wd caviar black in raid 0
Sapphire radeon hd 5870
Lian li x1000
Corsair tx850w
Samsun 305t 30 inch monitor @ 2560x1600
Prolimatech megahalems

I plan on playing games at max settings crysis/crysis warhead included. I am worried that at that resolution 1 5870 will not cut it and i am already over my budget by a solid 300$ to afford the second graphic card would have to wait for the end of next november probably. If i wait till november i might as well see what the new nvidia cards look like and just buy this thing post xmas (might get a better deal!). So the way i see it i can do one of two things, buy it now or buy an xbox 360 to tide me over till january and buy the best computer i can afford then! I refuse to pay 3300$ for a computer and not bbe blown away by the performance!

Graphics Card For 19 Inch Ws Monitor

New to graphics and monitors, so chances are it will be easy to solve. I have just been give a 19'' widescreen lcd for crimbo. I am currently running onboard graphics as i don't need anything special. The highest resolution i can get is 1280 x 1024, but when in widescreen mode, it stretches everything and look rubbish. I have looked at the papers that have came with it and the read as follows:-

16:10
19'' widescreen
Max res 1440 x 900

I cant seem to find this setting in my properties, so i assume i will need a graphics card upgrade. Am i on the right lines? Or am i missing out something very simple? I would really like to have the monitor on widescreen and have the resolution so that it fills the screen without the stretching. This will maximize the monitor and my workspace.

Phillips 17 Inch Monitor Shrinks

One of my 17 inch monitors (phillips) starts up fine but within 1 minute or 2 it shrinks to about half of the width, with the sides concave. It is definitely the monitor, as i can plug it in to different computers and it acts the same. The buttons cannot reset it, neither by resetting to factory, nor by adjusting pincushion. What next?

Correct Resolution For A 19 Inch Widescreen Monitor

What screen resolution do i use for a 19 inch widescreen?

Before i had a regular sized screen i think 17 inch, and i had it on 1280x1024. I want to correctly scale it up to my new monitor, i want to try and have the same pixels to inch ratio (as close as possible) just with more pixels on my screen

Right now i have it on 1440x900 but it feels kind of weird (maybe im just not used to the widescreen expierence) edit: bassicaly id like to keep the same height, the height shrunk abuot 100 pixels and i think thats whats causing the weirdness. Btw my video card is an ati pci-express (i forget the model) and im using the dvi port thing.

Video Card For 1680x1050 And 22 Inch Monitor

After years of great gaming with an 8800gtx it finally went out and i am now stuck using a old geforce fx 5200. Since i need a new video card for my system i would like to know what is recommended. I would like to know what video card you guys recommend for a gaming res of 1680x1050. This is off topic, but i am also considering upgrading my cpu from a q6600 to a e8500 although i could swear that i got a major performance boost when i went from a 2. 4ghz core2duo i forget the model to a q6600 g0 in crysis. I would like advice on this from other gamers. Is it worth the change for game performance?

My most played games are:

Fallout 3, mass effect, and witcher enhanced.

Best Sli Setup / 30 Inch Monitor / Psu Questions

I am about to buy a new computer, that includes a dell 3008wfp. My budget is 3000$ and buying that monitor leaves me with ~1700 (assuming i buy the monitor refurbished). I have a few questions regarding some of the components. Cpu: intel i7 920
Motherboard: asus p6t
Memory: ocz platinum triple-channel kit 2gb/stick pc3 10666
Hard drives: ocz apex 60gb ssd wd 640gb 7200 rpm 32mb cache
Graphics card(s): 2 bfg geforce gtx 280 ocx edition in sli
Psu: corsair 850tx 850w

Since i am running this on a 30 inch monitor, i wanted something powerful enough to support 2560x1600. Since the gtx 295 seems to be at its eol (it is not being sold anywhere) i decided to go with the gtx 280s in sli for now. First question - do you think the gtx 280s in sli are best? I am pretty partial to nvidia but it seems that 4890s in crossfire performs just as well and are cheaper. Second question - dell 3007wfp-hc or dell 3008wfp? The cheaper the better, but i do not want to risk major loss in performance for price. After reading the hardocp thread about this exact same question (listed here) i am still somewhat confused. The 3008 has more inputs and a onboard scalar. Having this scalar allows you to read a lot more resolutions regardless of what resolution may be coming in (because the scalar scales the resolution coming in)? In the case of the 3007, not having this scalar means that sending a resolution to the 3007 that it does not support will not work? This is a very important question to me, because if i were to buy the 3008, the only way it would work, is if i were to buy it refurbished, and even then i would still break 3000. Third question - am i pushing it too close with running a 850w psu with the gtx 280 sli setup?

Connect Sony Vaio Laptop To Samsung Lcd Tv

How do i connect my sony vaio laptop to my 40" samsung lcd tv. I want to use the lcd tv screen with my pc. ?

Answer:-

Either your tv or your laptop would've came with a cable that one side you plug into your tv, and another into your laptop. I have an acer aspire, and it said it was compatible with doing that, but it didn't give me a cable. If neither one has come with a double-sided cable, then buy one manually. Here's one that should work: http://www.7store.net/cable-adapter/1266/

Plug the vga side into your laptop, and the s-video port. Make sure to match up the colors on your tv, and the colors on the cable or else this will not work. Usually, the s-video is on the back of the tv, but i hadn't seen a samsung lcd in ages.

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 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.

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!
