>Not sure what you mean by the TV tax.

Something specific to (certain) EU countries, where owners of appliances containing a TV tuner have to pay a few hundred bucks each year, which are used to finance the national TV stations. Given the overall quality of their offering and the fact they all run ads nowadays, I prefer to spend that money on other things. BTW, that is on top of what you'd pay for a cable subscription, or to your internet provider to pump their selection of channels through your modem. (Rant: more and more just include that cost in your internet subscription, whether to subscribe to the TV feature and get the decoder, or not. Thieves...)

I have a 22" (or so) 1080p B&Q monitor which cast me about the same a few years (<7) ago, and it's a matte, high-frequency screen too. Not so certain you'd find those features in budget big screen TVs?

The gist or slightly more of a whiff, right? O:-)
