HDTV for Monitor
by Ron Geiken - 1/22/11 1:15 PM
I have two computers set up with 1080 by 1920 resolution which is their native resolution. They both work fine and the price is right. I have a 27 inch HP 2709m on my main computer, and that cost about $350. I have a 24 inch Samsung on my other computer, and that cost about $220. Resolution for HDTV is less than a typical full resolution monitor for computers, but it is plenty good, and the resolution is adequate to be used with the monitor 12 to 24 inches away for the 27 inch one. It is a real pleasure to work with a monitor this large. In the past, a 27 inch monitor would likely have had a greater resolution than 1080 by 1920, but that high is not really necessary for most people.
