Update: This doesn’t work anymore. HDTVs are cheaper than Monitor TV.
Diwali and the Holiday season is almost here, we are gearing up for an upgrade. So thought this would be a good idea.
I have seen that HD Monitors are cheaper than HDTVs with the same configuration. So, all you have to do is, buy a monitor, External TV tuner with VGA out, 2.1 speakers. This would be a cheaper solution.
Links (Well, these are just searches):
|22” Monitor||Rs. 8500||$170|
|External TV Tuner||Rs. 5000||$100|
|2.1 Speakers||Rs. 1000||$20|
|22” HDTV||Rs. 20000||$400|
Note: These are Approximate Values. So, research about this before buying. If you have a decent monitor already, this is the best option.
So, you save about $110 / Rs.5500.
LG’s Monitor is also a good option.
Optional: If you have a computer, you can also get a VGA switch to switch displays.
- Better sound from 2.1 speakers
- Separate Parts
