I every rarely, if ever, watch movies (and when i say movies i mean DVD's) on my PC. especially seeing as my PC is 2 meters away from my nice big wide-screen TV and DVD player.

If DVD's have DVD ROM content, then obviously i do. But not for the main feature

My wife and I banished television from our home 15 years ago, so our family watches DVDs almost every day on our 19" monitor. Three kids up front, mom and dad behind. With all the lights out and the 5.1 sound going on we really forget about the small size.

I think it's the clarity that makes up for the size. Watching DVD on a PC monitor is an equivalant experience to HDTV.

Would I notice a difference moving up to a 21 inch monitor? I can't afford a plasma screen and LCD's suck for off-angle viewing.

Plasma displays do not have a very long lifetime, or so I have read places.

I watch all my movies on pc, my samsung syncmaster 170t is a digital monitor ( DVI ) and it's a 17 inch viewable screen.

I don't watch television, I really hate it. We have it for the sake of my grandmother. If I lived alone, I wouldn't even have cable.

Movies on my pc, is the next best thing. I can either move away and get a wonderful picture, or watch it in a window, and I am just fine with that too :)

I just started watching DVD's on my computer. I got my Geforce 4 Ti 4200 and new dvd rom, plus sweet surround sound speakers! Very nice picture and sound for games and movies!

ICE AGE is a funny movie !!!

Sony projections aren't so hot. If you need any decent honest advice, I'm good for it.

I work at tweeter and am very into home theater... I'd be glad to help a fellow NTFS-er

How long have plasma's been out? How can someone tell the lifetime of something that hasn't even been out 10 years?
