View Full Version : Looking for an affordable HDTV...

12-31-05, 12:50 PM
OK, I'm a n00b to the wonderfull world of HDTV, but I feel the time is right to invest in an affordabe/modest HDTV monitor, in preperation for my XBOX360 (yet to come(whine)), and ideally to also double up as a perfect replacement to my existing 19" LCD (if this is indeed possible).

I was looking at this 19" LG L193ST (second model down): http://www.overclockers.co.uk/acatalog/lcdtv19.html.

In a word, does this sound like a good deal? Does anyone have any experience with this type of monitor? Or should I hold on to my cash and perhaps save up for a kick ass 30"+ plasma screen, possibly getting much more enjoyment in the long run(xmasgrin)?

Looks pretty nice, I've heard good things about the smaller LG LCD's...oh yeah and the plasma's have to burn in and stuff and their life epectancy is about 3 years less than a DLP, LCD hdtv, especially if you use it often.
