    in general, they work just fine.

    some cheap HDTV's look like arse however, so try and get a good one.


    that one appears decent (large viewing angle indicates a decent panel type), however like my screen its got a low resolution. its upto you if thats a problem or not.

    8ms response time might be a little slow for gaming. Ghosting isn't fun when you're trying to snipe someone.

    8ms isnt a problem on HDTV's, you cant get any lower than 5ms without going to a TN panel anyway.

    its not like the old days where PC LCD Makers would label a screen 8ms G2G and they had 16ms in other colors, they're far closer these days.
