Anyone have one of these or both? Does anyone have something comparable from a name brand company in the same price range?
Basically Im looking at these two monitors/HD ready TV models but Im willing to consider others. For now I just want to use it as a desktop monitor and they both look really good for the money given the competition in their respective classes.ViewSonic N2750w 27" 16:9 8ms HD LCD TV $739.99ViewSonic N3250w 32" 16:9 8ms HD LCD TV ($899.99 after $100.00 Mail-In Rebate) ViewSonic N3250w 32" video review
Not really a huge price difference but noteworthy nonetheless .
The specs of the system it would be connected to are as follows:
AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+
1GB TwinMOS Speed Premium PC3200 RAM
ASUS A8N-SLI Deluxe
16 Pipe Mod Sapphire X800GTO2 @ X850XT PE Speed
ATI HDTV Wonder
Sapphire Theater 550 Pro
Maddog BTX/ATX 500W PSU
Modified Castek CK-1018-1A Tower Case
MCE 2K5 SP2 + Rollup2
Therefore, Ill use the monitor not only as a desktop monitor but also as an entertainment center for SD and HD TV. Currently only OTA HD would be used but HD via cable is a possible future consideration therefore HDMI with HDCP and audio support would be desirable. Unfortunately, the N2750w 27 does not support HDMI/HDCP.
BTW, from what I have come across thus far, most of the models that support HDMI/HDCP are well into the $1,500 range and I really dont want to spend that kind of money.
Conceivably, System_64-X2, will be upgraded to Windows Vista with Vista Media Center and eventually a Blu-Ray or HD-DVD drive so again HDMI/HDCP would be preferable to avoid downsampled 540p signal
truncation or possibly no video at all in some cases.
Also, gaming is a hobby of mine so naturally I want a monitor that can handle some intense action!!!
Any constructive input would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
