Re: [edlug] [OT] Lcd TV or Lcd monitor

I'm very satisfied with my choice for BenQ 24" FP241W. Its in the 650£
area and PS2 looks very nice on it. Its HD ready too so you can connect
your cable box too. On top of that its an ace computer monitor - which
is what its made for in the first place :) ...
