At this time I have an old Pioneer CRT RPTV and it still is functioning fine. But I would like to plan ahead so when I need a new TV I can have some decisions made already. I have read up on the Mits DLP's and they certainly intrigue me to the point where I could see myself purchasing one. The pluses to me certainly outweigh the cons and do believe that alot of the 2008 and older problems have been reduced significantly. My main concern at this time is how these function as a computer monitor?? My current CRT RPTV really sucks, it does have a VGA input but actually states in the manual not to use it for hooking up a computer. At one time I did have my desktop on it but was thru Powerstrip I think and really wasn't that satisfactory a picture. I see the Mits doesn't have the VGA connector so the input according to their manual says to use the HDMI connector. I would like to have my next TV setup also as a computer monitor and from what I gather from reading the LCD's and plasmas work very well for that purpose. How well do the DLP's work for a computer monitor, hopefully there are some users out there that are doing that?? My video card has DVI and VGA outputs so I would obviously need a DVI-HDMI adapter. Will I have to play and play with settings on my video card to get the screen to show my whole desktop, including the toolbar, or is it a painless process? Please help me out as I haven't seen too much info on this subject here, at least what I have found. I would hate to find out the hard way that I made a mistake. Thanks...
