Question Dell UltraSharp 2407WFP-HC LCD Monitor

After doing 1 week research on what monitor to get, I think I finally came to conclusion. The Dell UltraSharp 2407WFP-HC LCD Monitor.

My choices were the following

Samsung 245BW Black 24”
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...1234&Tpk=245BW

SAMSUNG Black 23" 720p LCD HDTV LNT2342H
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16889102122

&

Dell UltraSharp 2407WFP-HC LCD Monitor
http://accessories.us.dell.com/sna/p...9&sku=320-5647

I just have one question guys, on the reviews it sad that you can watch TV thru it, but after taking a look at the connections in the back, I wasn’t able to find the input for the TV cable http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16815122008 This is the input that I am talking about, I have this kind of wire that would go, into thin kind of inputs, but I don’t think Dell have an input for it….Is there some kind of extensions that I can use, to put on cable tv antenna and into dell monitor…?

cs on that kind of monitor isnt really much different from if u had a 19inch on fullest settings. cs just isnt that sort of high end game that would look any different.

Ya I hear you, but what I mean, is it comfortable to play in on a wide screen 24"? I presume I would have to place my monitor a bit further away then my CRT was, so I can see everything better right? Or is 24" not that wide...?

Width 22 in

Depth 7.7 in

Height 15.3 in

Weight 18.3 lbs


One thing I don’t like is the height...I mean its only 15.3...I hope il adjust to it.

I am about to order the dell, but i have one last question. Dell ofers Max Resolution 1920 x 1200 / 60 Hz. Now 60Hz is not that much...actually its kind of low, will that hurt my eyes? or does this monitoer somehow compensates for it?

This doesn't answer your questions at all but how much are you paying for it out of curiosity?

Sorry if you consider this spam.
