So last night I wondered, "Why do I have a monitor and a TV?"

Problem solved. 32" 1080p monitor (it was/is my TV). Now I can watch TV on my PC on my TV and play all my PC games and old emulators (with the proper aspect ratio, though) in 1080p. Win.

I don't actually think I could ever even use a tv/monitor that big. 24" widescreen is enough for a single screen for me, and I can handle dual-screens, but that big would make even me feel like a midget :-|

@Jayge: I feel like a midget using it actually. But I think it's pretty awesome.

Actually, resting my head on the headrest-thing on my computer chair angles my head directly at the TV. Pretty comfortable actually. :D

What size was your old PC monitor? Doesn't something that big drag your PC down? That's a lot of picture to cover. To tell you the truth, I could live in front of that and play and play and play.

He has a PS2, but no PS3. That caught my eye. And that PS2 is the old one not the slim version. He also plays the Wii without the condom, but he does use the strap.

What resolution?

Sorry you bought a Vizio :( Have fun returning it in 6 months

Posted by RHCPfan24

Wait, was the 360/Wii/PS2 already near the PC area? If you had a monitor and TV on top of each other or in the way of each other, then yeah, that could be annoying. However, that is a bigass screen for a monitor. It will work, but lean back a bit when you play it ;)

Vizios have better feature-sets than most Sonys, yet they cost less than some cellphones lol.

Heh, I noticed that too, about the PS2/PS3.

However, you better use a condom, man. It's just smart.

They cost less because they use inferior parts & aren't put together well. They have the highest return rate of any hdtv's. Why do you think they're so cheap? "Early in 2009, a number of web sites started charting consumer complaints about Vizio TVs. Consumers claimed Vizio TVs had a very short life span, in some cases less than two years. Some customers reported that Vizio would direct them to where they could get their TV repaired, often times with repair costs only slightly less than the original cost of the TV."

@jNerd:

Do you own one sir? Because I have owned a Vizio since I was sixteen years-old with a 1080i resolution that has never so much as lagged during a menu selection.
Posted by Tireyo

Wow! I have to say that's pretty big for a computer/TV screen.  You're pretty much set for a long time on monitors.

This is very off-topic, but I was around eight or so when my Father told me about The Velvet Underground and gave me some tapes to listen to.

Wow, we have nearly the same TV except I coughed up extra cash so it would run 1080p. Looks great runs wonderfully, never quite realized
how good 1080p looked until I bought the TV and compared it to my old SD TV

Posted by Sticky_Pennies

Wow, lots of replies! o_O
I do use the Wiimote with the condom, I just had to change the battery and sync the Wiimote from a friend's house, so I didn't get a chance to put it back on (mostly out of laziness).
And yeah, I still have my phatty PS2! I plan on getting a PS3 soon to fill out my trifecta!
My old monitor was a 19" widescreen at 1440x900, and this runs at 1920x1080 at 32".
I ended up going with a Vizio because the one in our living room, a 47" I believe, has been running just fine with no problems for a full year now. I also liked the crazy choices of inputs, and it was reviewed fairly well.

No this is what happens if you have too much time on your hands:

Nice setup! I is jealous.

I tried this a few weeks ago with my 52" with two real visual treats: Crysis: Warhead and Worms Armageddon.

Also, does your mousepad have LEDs?

I might do something like that when I get some time off from work, since I got the hardware to do it.

You are stacked... *sigh* I wish.

Posted by Bucketdeth

I had almost the same set up, but my eyes were hurting so bad I had to stop.

Posted by ahriman22

I'm happy with my 22" 1080p monitor. I have a 32" for games and TV, but it's just too big.
