I have 17" Relisys TFT
Good Monitor, speakers Ok, no DVI port. TV tuner, AV ports.
Only disadvantage is that when making copies of screen, using Print Screen, the picture is wide, making it hard to see anything. But most people do not use the feature, so it is alrite.

I have a 15" screen on my laptop and movies dont seem to suffer nor does anything for that matter..

i would have thought it will be better for movies,no black lines top and bottom.i was just wondering wether images were stretched to fit on the desktop although i know i could centre it

Do you use it for photos? Could be that the vertical height will make the pics small compared with standard screen for portrate style pis, unless of course you buy a very large screen to compensate.
