And In a Related Article: 20-Inch TV, 1080P?

A recent Los Angeles Times article reports that 1080p resolution is now commonly offered on TVs in the low 20-inch range at prices below $300.

So why are these TVs on the market? The justification appears to be based on multiple uses. According to the article, many people, especially younger viewers, are benefiting from 1080p's higher resolution when using smaller displays as computer monitors and for video games (sharper text and graphics). If you're already building computer monitors, adding a TV tuner adds very little to the cost. To read the entire article, click here:
