Good color and dark grayscale performance. Stylish design. Energy efficient.

Home entertainment, NOT computer monitor


Ever wonder why you shouldn't just buy an HDTV and plug your computer into it as a regular monitor? Here's why: on HDTVs, the dots are HUGE when viewed close up. They're meant to be viewed from a distance.The first hint, it's HDMI and VGA only, no DVI....
