Hi,

READ SUMMARY AT BOTTOM IF YOU WANT TO SKIP TEXT

I am currently looking to buy a 32 to 42 lcd for 60% pc gaming and regular pc use and 40% tv and movies. For the past week or so I have been doing a lot of research (20+ hours to find the right tv). I want the following specs at a 600-1000$ budget (maybe more)

-32-42 lcd hdtv for bedroom

-1080p, 1080i, etc etc

-Astv tuner etc etc

-1920x1080 resolution (very important) pc compatible at 1080p and possible 60hz or more

Via dvi to hdmi cable hooked to nvidia 8800gtx (possibly 2 at sli) vista

-fast response time for next gen games like crysis and fps

-clear text

-dvi and vga input is a plus

-bright-view

-anti-glare

-split screen is a plus


Some lcd tvs that came into mind during research


-Vizio VU42LF, 800$ is a deal (and some). Have read pc compatible problems with clear text, 1080p, and stable 1920x1080p resolution via hdmi to dvi


-Sharp aquos LC-32D62U -900-1000$. Have heard good things but good for pc gaming?


-Sharp aquous gaming LC-32GP1U 1000-1200$. Looks up my alley but expensive but has The newly developed Vyper Drive game mode eliminates any perceptible video lag time and how is it different then the sharp besides the viper drive?


-any Westinghouse with above specs .


My other option is just ditching the whole pc monitor/tv thing and getting a cheap 32 720i vizio or something with a 22-24 monitor. Approx 600+300=900 = about same


SUMMARY: I need a 1080p 1920x1080p pc compatible via dvi to hdmi 32-42 lcd hdtv for next gen pc games and crisp tv for my room at a reasonable price


Thank You!

I bought the LC32GP3UB. I have very little time using it. Just a couple of hours.

It is latest and greatest, but you won't find for under 1K. I paid $1,224.88 from Amazon reseller shipped.

No DVI really got on my nerves, so I had to order DVI to HDMI. It does have standard analog input 15 pin. Very little information available for it, so I have some work to do. I couldn't even find on sharp usa site.

yah ive been trying to find more about the LC32GP3UB, it looks like it fixed most of the problem with the gp1u... i still want to find out more about it ...but i think i might pull the trigger on buying it... im sure playing crysis full settings on quad core, 8800gtx etc etc is amazing


how is the tv during the day with blinds open and sunlight? how is the viewing angle?

Just played some Cysis on 1920x1080 all settings to medium. 3.5GHZ Quad Core 2GB RAM 8800GTS OC 512mb. Looked great. I'll check some FRAPS and start upping settings as I move forward. Still haven't done much other than hook up DVI-HDMI and set to game mode.

Haven't watched during daytime yet.

after over 25 hours of research (not kidding) i just picked up a sharp lc-32d64u for 950$... ill be pairing this with a just picked up water cooled quad core 2.4ghz dual 8800gt 1066mhz ddr2 2gb etc etc pc computer. I choose the sharp for pc compatibility, price (under a grand), and 1080p rez for gaming and movie watching on pc. plus 32" sounds perfect for my room size.

Ive heard those tv's dont support 1080p (1920x1080) through hdmi or vga very good... they've been known to have a blurry text ...this has been confirmed through both vizio company and the avs forum for the vu. I could be wrong though ..im assuming ur running 1366x766 (or w/e)
