    Looking for help choosing a monitor/tv

    Basically I am looking for a new monitor. I do PC gaming AND also color correction for video work. I'm kind of torn between these sets:

    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/QH270-Lite...ht_7727wt_1185

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16889112058

    From what I know, the TV's pixels are larger than a monitor's so maybe for PC gaming it might not be a good deal. Also i need accurate colors due tot he color correction work. Just wondering what the more techie people here think...

    It looks like you are trying to spend as little as possible to get a 32" screen. Personally for use as a monitor I think they would suck.

    Thats in the price range of the TV's you listed and has a nice backlit IPS panel.

    Heres one at 27" http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824176242


    For the best image quality and color correctness IPS panels win.

    Sounds like a good idea if you want a large screen.

    I bought one of theseclick.

    Perhaps not perfect for color correction work, but can be adapted.... to an extent.

    Those monitors are suppose to be quite something David. I believe they have IPS panels as well.

    I have one. It is quite nice for gaming and general computer use. Bright as all get out.
