Here’s a relatively affordable full HD TV from ViewSonic. The VT2430 is a 24-inch, 1080p LCD with an ATSC/NTSC/QAM tuner, 10,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio, 5ms response time, 300cd/m2 brightness, a VGA input, composite/component/S-Video inputs, and a single HDMI input. The company’s positioning the TV for “the other room,” meaning the bedroom, children’s playroom, kitchen, or office. You could use it in a small living room, though, provided you didn’t need to hook too many HDMI-based devices up to it.
MSRP is $399, but you’ll able to find it for less online ($375 at Amazon, for instance).
