Yeah, I don’t have any illusions about returning it.
My man room currently is relatively small, but I’ve got it set up with a desk and a PC in one corner, and along another wall I have an easy chair pointed at a TV which is hooked up to consoles. I have it this way largely because I like to sit at a desk to play PC games, but lounge back in comfort for console games.
I had originally thought that, rather than get a new 24" monitor, hey! I’ll just move the TV over, and try to re-organize the room so that everyone points at the same place (the desk).
But now the idea of sitting at a PC which is showing 720p on such a big screen just bugs me.
So the question now is, do I:
- pay $250 to get a new 24" monitor and leave the old TV where it is for console games?
- pay $500+ for a new TV, and sell the old one on craigslist to try to offset some of the extra cost (It’s quite well maintained). And then use that for everything.
I’m still not sure which I’d prefer. I like the idea of playing PC games on a big screen…but perhaps just getting a good monitor would be the better option for something so up close.
