Hey there, I am in the market for a large computer monitor or a 1080p HDTV to use primarily as a PC display. I want at least 27" and a max of 32"

Newegg has had a really good deal on the Hanns G 28" LCD for $489.99 w/ free shipping (went on sale two weekends in a row) but isn’t on sale at the moment.

Dell has a nice 27" LCD, and there are a few others as well.

As far as HDTV's go, the TOSHIBA REGZA 32" 1080p has caught my eye. A friend has one and says it is a great display. Buydig.com has it for $799 w/ free shipping.

I don’t have any game consoles but might get one down the road. I presently have a 22" Acer lcd that I would sell as part of the upgrade process. Any opinions on a particular display?

Well, the monitors are going to look a lot better than the tv because they're built for computers,but, with the tv you might have some compatability problems.

The tv might be a better deal because you can also use it as a tv. :)

I bought one last December and have it hooked up using a DVI/HDMI connector running it at 1920x1080 and it look great. Or you can get this year model that come in White, Red or Black for $400 more.
