Dell is offering a 24" display for under $1000 and Designtechnica has the review.  It can accept just about any signal output on the planet, and it is not quite large enough to require dual DVI in order to display properly.  Check this monster out!

you. Unless you are dead set on an HDMI with a 24-in. display, there is no reason to pass up on

Designtechninca takes you through a simple guide to make your HDTV get the best out of digital signals.

just demoted to the bedroom. The first realization may hit you smack on the head. Then again, it

disappointment, disillusionment, suffering, pain, misery, death.

If you are an enthusiast or not, if you have a newer computer, chances are it's got more connections than you can shake a stick at. USB, IEEE1394, SATA, Ethernet, the list goes on and on. But one thing that is seldom seen is the A/V connectors commonly seen on TVs. It makes perfect sense to have them in place. With a TV tuner/PVR card, you can copy, play, and record audio and video between live TV/radio, VCR, DVD player, cassette player, digital video camera, security camera, and many other gadgets.

While this monitor doesn't have the ultra-low refresh rates gamers prefer, it looks like a pretty nifty device to me. It is certainly a lot less clunky than a 21" CRT and a PCI TV tuner!

Quote: "Samsung has been delivering products of superior quality in
their Syncmaster product line for some time now! Their latest product, the
SyncMaster 173MP is no exception. This product has the same distinguished
aesthetics we have become accustomed to from Samsung and is a sister model
of the 192MP. This 17 inch, HDTV-ready flat screen monitor is going to make
some noise in the market.

Samsung is one of the leaders in consumer electronics today and are well known in the LCD industry. I personally have used many of their products from graphics card memory to system memory and optical drives.
