Westinghouse 40" as sim monitor

Recommended Posts

I saw this deal at NewEgg and thought, for $400.00 this 40" LED - LCD TV seems appealing. However, would it be worth it, and would my performance drop? An inquiring mind wants to know :)http://www.newegg.co...ndex-_-89234047

General Brand Westinghouse Model LD-4080 Cabinet Color High Gloss Black Panel Screen Size 40" Recommended Resolution 1080p Maximum Resolution 1920 x 1080 Aspect Ratio 16:9 LED Technology Edgelit Viewing Angle 178°(H) / 178°(V) Display Color 16.7 Million Brightness 360 cd/m² (nominal) Contrast Ratio 4000:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio 100,000:1 Response Time 8ms Refresh Rate 120Hz Video User Settings Screen Fit Modes: Standard/Fill/Overscan Color Temperature: 3 Presets Tuner NTSC / ATSC / Clear QAM Tuner Support Video Signal 1080i/p, 720p, 480i/p Audio Speaker Location Down Firing Output Power 6W + 6W Connectivity HDMI 3 PC Input 15-Pin D-Sub x 1 Headphone 1 Out Digital Audio 1 Coaxial Out Composite A/V 1 Component Video 1 Other Connectors Antenna In (RF) x 1 PC Audio (mini) x 1 Power Energy Star Compliant Yes Power Supply AC 110~240V, 60Hz Power Consumption 140W Convenience VESA 400mm x 400mm Regulatory Approvals Certifi cations and Compatibility: FCC Class B, CE, UL, EPA Energy Star Feature Feature Progressive Scan 3D Noise Reduction Inverse 3:2 Pull Down De-Interlacing 3D Adaptive Comb Filter Parental Control Sleep Timer Dimensions & Weight Dimensions With Stand 38.0" x 26.4" x 8.0" (W x H x D) Dimensions Without Stand 38.0" x 24.0" x 1.5" (W x H x D) Weight With Stand 29.4 lbs.

As long as you are happy with the resolutions it can display, then go for it. I actually use a Technika Widescreen 32 inch LCD TV for my main PC Display, and that works geat, in fact I'm typing this right now using that very display. I did have to buy a D-sub connector lead to get it rigged up to my PC as it did not come with a suitable lead, but apart from that it was no bother - the TV cost 220 quid if I recall correctly although I have never actually used it as a TV LOL. I'd certainly recommend big TV displays for flight sims, since I can display an airliner VC in MS Flight Sim with the gauges at pretty much the actual size they are in the real thing, which is cool.

.. i think you will be better with Plasma 1080p. I got the Westinghouse 42" LCD 120Hz, Very,very happy with the size, less with the quality. The problem is that it's hard to get Thin 1080 42". Cheers Yair

Plasma if you can afford the power bill.

..no pain no gain LOL.gif ..... but today plasma TV are all, star enargey compliance, and if you do not fly every day the big circle LAX to Tokyo, the power consumption is not really a factor
