Can anyone tell me the best why to create a large display from the internet. I need to see data from 15 - 20 feet.(Aircraft tracking a Data, ETA, departure etc.)
I would like to use large screen TV's, I need 5 for a NASA type operations room. Projection is not practical for a 24/7 operation plus to costly. Help!

You'll want to use an HDTV for it's increased resolution, these screens are compatable with 1024x768 computer output, and some units actually include a 15-pin VGA port, for around $100 more. You could also consider a large tube monitor, I see 36" Gateway monitors going for around $500 refurbished, but they only support 800x600 (still far better than the 640x480/blurry of a standard television).

What's the frequency, Kenneth?

Tell me where you are seeing those Gateway monitors. I need to get at least 3 if not 5 in the next few days.
I have a buget I am trying to work with and $500 would be great. The Monitor outlet is quoting me $1700 for a 34"

Compgeeks carries them sporadically, so no help there when your in a hurry, Gateway closed out a bunch of these last year, both Compgeeks and Gateway carried them for between $450 and $500. Found out from a dealer that Gateway was selling them on their dealers channel, maybe you should go to a local Gateway Country Store and see if they are still available? Right now their regular online accesorie store has what I'm looking for, a FIFTY INCH FLAT PANEL, but the cost is more than the average used car!
