I think that is very interesting that Westington sells their TV's as Monitors
savings tons of costs on the Tuners etc.. Is this why Westington's prices are
the way they are?
Because that's a damn good price for a true 1080p unit..
But I don't think anyone in the world has one in stock..
How much can you know about yourself, you've never been in a fight? I don't
wanna die without any scars. So come on; hit me
