Yeah looks like a good deal for what it does. Having said that take the model numbers and run them at newegg and other retailers.

A computer monitor would be bigger, higher res, and cheaper. What are you going to be using it for? If its for a 360, I would buy a VGA cable for the 360. If its for watching TV, I would just buy a TV tuner. If its for a PS3 or wii, or older system, then idk what to do... lol.

That's basically a computer monitor with a built in TV tuner. The resolution is 1440x900, which isn't standard for HDTV (standard is 720p or 1080p, at that size look for 720p which is 1280x720)

I think you will be disappointed with a 19", its smaller then you think especially for a TV.

Looks good but the resolution could be higher, you need 1920*1080 for 1080 HDTV
