… good tv for a kitchen or garage or kids room.

here it is at amazon


#7

Can I use it as a monitor for my computer?


#8

manufacturer’s link


#9

If it could take advantage of my Mac Book Pro’s ability to display in 1080p, I might be tempted. However, since a 19" is unlikely to come in 1080p, I’ll wait for something bigger.


#10

Is HD even necessary on a 19" tv?


#11

Yes, but it will look like garbage probably.


#12

Would this make a good second monitor so that you can procrastinate your homework with some TV


#13

I think this is the correct TV at the website, actually.


#14

I’d say yes you can easily use it as a monitor for your computer as it appears to have a VGA input.


#15

What exactly are the standards for a TV to be “HD”? I mean, this has HDMI input, but it doesn’t reach 1920x1080, which I always thought was the standard for HD.

Any thoughts?


#16

anyone know how good the speaker quality is?


#17

Here is the Cnet review


#18

It’s square! I didn’t think they made square HD displays with HDMI ports.

Still doesn’t make me want one.

Working link

@thisandthis, your link is appending an extra slash on the end, throws a nice 404 error.
