Shucks, I guess it is a PC monitor with a built-in TV tuner. I have it mounted on an articulating wall mount in the garage in use as a TV only at this time.
I would suspect that any TV/PC monitor in the range of 19 through 26 or so inches would primarily be used as a PC monitor and sold that way. I guess that would explain the poor vertical viewing range.
It makes me wonder further why the Sharp 26 inch doesn't have a tilt stand as virtually all PC monitors do. I wouldn't recommend the Sharp for use as a TV as the stand doesn't tilt or pivot and being a very skinny unit, the speakers are pointing down.
I do have a Hannspree 28 inch TV which I use primarily as a TV in my computer area and it is also connected to my spare/test PC for those times when I want to try out some new hardware or software without screwing up my main PC. It works great for that and, for relatively low price, is what I would recommend for someone with a limited budget. Not sure I would recommend it for primarily a bedroom TV if budget was not a consideration.
I don't know what I would get for that situation but suspect that if budget wasn't a consideration, I might still get it and add a nice sound system to it.
Sorry, I'm rambling again..........
