    so i want to replace my 19" POS tv in my bed room.. i would really like to get at least a 20" LCD flat tv.. now i don't want to spend a lot of money.. it doesn't have to have all the super cool features on it at all.. i just want to save some space on my new desk by not having a huge 19" tubed tv on it...

    a couple other questions too.. can i hook my computer up to a LCD TV? (if not no biggie i already have a nice monitor) the reason why i don't need all the cool features is that i just watch this tv when i'm working on my computer or in bed...

    the only thing that i would like to have is a pretty good picture.. but it doesn't have be HDTV or anything.. just a regular flat screen tv that i can watch and save some space..

    thanks for any suggestions!

    It depends on your budget. Some LCD TV's do have VGA and DVI inputs, others only have the standard TV ones (component, s-video, composite, and RF for cable or antenna).

    With that kind of budget, you can go 2 ways:

    Home Theater Forum (yep, right here) had the B4US (the latest model), for $699.84 plus shipping after rebate just a few days ago. If you're interested, let me know, and I'll see if that price is still available for you.
