    Samsung screens are the best at the moment, for both PC and HDTV

    Samsung 226 for PC
    and any samsung HDTV cleans the floor of other brands at the moment (heck, even sony steal samsung screens in their overpriced Bravia TVs)

    Pixel Pitch could be a bit better, but a great monitor nonetheless.

    Monitors under $200 will most definitely not have nothing more than VGA or DVI (no SVHS, composite). If you want to watch TV, you're best bet is through the laptop.

    Damn, there's so much more variety at your avg. shop in the US, most of the Aus ones just carry stock unless you search for them individually!

    But seriously, he has a point. I type this to you from a samsung monitor, and I assure you they are brilliant. Although I have absolutely no idea what model this one is, its Black and a flat panel (big help yes I know). Go with samsung if you can't decide, chances are it'll be great anyway.
