This got 4 eggs on Newegg.

But one reviewer also managed to get it for $15 cheaper at the time when they got it in June.

Would this make a decent computer monitor? Am I allowed to do that to a TV? :slight_smile:

reviews, reviews

You Tube Video Review

Never heard of this brand. Who are they?

do these put off very much heat i know some tvs are a killer when it comes to heat

I don’t know much about LCD TVs, but I’m really interested in this, and I have a question.

From what I’ve heard, contrast ratio is really important. Isn’t 800:1 really bad?

Well it may be cheaper than Amazon but for this price you can occasionally get a branded 32". Never even heard of Auria so it’s a no go.

Most of the reviews at NewEgg say the speakers are really terrible and don’t get very loud.

This might be OK for a bedroom…?

Some of those reviews suggest this is a rebranded Sony Bravia, and that the only difference is the firmware, which can be flashed, the LCD panel, which you can swap out, and the speakers, which you can bypass.

Never heard of Auria, seems like a decent set and price though.

Darn. Was gonna go for it until I saw it is vega mount. I only have vesa here.
Oh well.

This would make one hell of a PC monitor
