View Full Version : Big LCD monitor/tv's

05-30-2005, 06:00 AM
I am interested in buying a big screen LCD TV monitor to use with my VideoTOASTER and to watch movies on. But I am not sure on what to look for as I am going to all the stores in my area to look at them in person. I am looking for one that is about 26 inches or so. I am looking for one with picture in picture and computer input.

I am running two 17 inch monitors on my Toaster right now and I like them a lot. But they are heavy to take every where with me to go and do a live show with my toaster.

I am wondering if other lightwave and toaster owners are using these new big LCD tv/monitors, or are looking into investing into one of them.

Here are some links for some that I am looking at.

Well, just having a new LCD myself, I would recommend buying one with at least 1600 X 1200 resolution. Worry more about that rather then how big the monitor is. The picture on the larger monitors is not going to be as crisp seeing that the few of those links of yours I looked have a max resolution of 1280 X 720.
