    So, I'm going to buy a new computer monitor.

    I've looked at many.

    I really like the look of the Samsungs -- even when powered off. I like things with sort of an artsy look..

    I like the T260 monitor. But then there is the T260HD which is also a TV.

    Here are the two monitors compared:

    Why does the T260HD cost less than the T260?

    Yes, the T260HD is a bit thicker -- but are there disadvantages to the T260HD as compared with the T260?

    Are there advantages to the T260 that I'm not realizing?

    Thank you for any assistance.

    Well TVs in general are supposed to be looked at from your couch, usually 6 to 10 feet away. So even if the text on the TV is blurry up close, it looks fine from a distance.

    The T260 HD is more expensive since it includes an digital over-the-air antenna and special TV inputs, such as component, progressive, at least a couple of HDMI inputs. The T260 also has 1 HDMI input.

    Oops, I edited my first post....... the T260 monitor costs more than the T260HD which is what I don't get.

    What you are saying is exactly what I would think....
