what's the story on these multi-function panels, say in the 17-19" range? thinking i might set up a computer station in the kitchen and run the cable box to it for tv.. any brands or new stuff stand out to you all? one of the guys in my office has a dell portable panel he hauls around from desktop to camper to use as computer monitor or tv.. other/better versions out there that have been well-reviewed? i gotta believe this is the way this is going. or is it just a matter of getting any lcd screen and having the tv receiver in the computer?

Looking for brightness, contrast, dynamic range and response time of a LCD panel. There is a very wide range in LDC panel. The cheap PC monitor type has low brightness, contrast and narrow view angle. They are also slow. The better LCD TV or PC monitors on the other hand are getting quite good. In general, LCD TV has better spec than just PC monitor but they are more expensive. The best way is go to stores and check it out yourself.
