"This is a 27" VGA monitor which should also be able to be used as an NTSC
television monitor. Can anybody comment on it?"
IMO, I think the entire idea of a combined TV/computer monitor is silly
especially when the likely cost premium is taken into account. Watching
the boob tube will tie up your entire PC. The optimal size for TV and
computer use is not the same nor are the requirements in terms of scan
rate, resolution, brightness, and sharpness. Thus, the design will be
inherently more expensive and include more compromises.
So, I will probably be proved wrong by record sales of these things but
my only justification for such a hybrid would be if there were absolutely
no space for both.
