About the Dell 24" LCD display?

by yiwakawa / January 24, 2006 1:58 AM PST

I wanted to know few things about this Dell 24" LCD display before I do something stupid and wast some more money again?
I was looking into getting a LCD TV for use with my computer, but after asking around I was told that the low resolution of the LCD TV was not a good idea for use as a computer display. The only reason I was thinking about the LCD TV was for it's video input and stuff. I need a place for my TV box, DVD player, and Nintendo.
Can you get HD TV signal form a computer display with a TV box? I know it's not a TV, but they all talk about the display as being HD compatible?
Can I put all my stuff on this display if I used some " converter thing"? I need to put on the TV box, DVD player, and Nintendo on the Dell 24" LCD display if I can?
Thank you for your help!

Dell 24"

The Dell 24" is a very nice LCD. It has 5 inputs for various equipment for @$900 at costco. I would suggested it if you are using it for computer then TV. If you want TV then Computer,then my suggestion is you can look into the Sceptre 37" LCD TV that does 1080p resolution (1920X1080) for HDTV as well as DVI for the computer. @$1599.

I looked at the Sceptre 37" LCD TV but I need it under 29"?

Yes I was thinking about the Sceptre 37" LCD TV, but the problem I have is I need to be able to use it on a computer desk about 3.5'x2.5' in size. I will use the computer during the day and at night watch a DVD or play the Nintendo. I am also moving in to a small studio apartment and the Sceptre 37" LCD TV will take too much space.
The ideal size for a display is 26" (1920X1080) LCD display that I can use all my stuff with TV box, DVD player, and Nintendo. But the 24" Dell will work since it looks like none of the manufacture make a 26" (1920X1080) LCD display?
If any of you know a (1920X1080) LCD display under 29" with DVI and a lot of plug in for my stuff please let me know.

Again thank you for your help.
