    I've been looking at a monitor such as this and I notice it says HD Ready.
    What does this mean exactly? I'm not really into tvs/monitors and how they work/the buzz words etc so I'm not too sure... :wavey:

    i'm really confused on what monitor to buy.

    according to [h] the monitor i want isn't great? i dunno... are 22" monitors bad? is it better to go for a 20"? 24" is a little out of my price range

    22" is a waste. Save up an extra days wages and get the 24"

    24" is "meh" now-a-days.

    keep in mind im currently using an LG 17" LCD

    id rather not blow all my money on a 24" monitor. im not that hardcore. i just want a nice widescreen. 20" or 22" pretty much. all im doing is some games, photo editing work, possibly some video editing and that's all. the prices for 24" here are at least $500 and i cant justify spending that on a monitor when others are cheaper and just as good, just a bit smaller :dunno:
