Anybody gaming on a 20" TV?

#1reppakenPosted 7/10/2013 9:08:32 PM
Just wondering if a TV this size will do for a small bedroom? Will only be playing games on it.

Thanks for any help

For a small room 20" should be fine. My Alienware laptop only has a 17" screen and I have no problem gaming on it. If you're sitting close enough 20" will be more than enough.

Rule of thumb is four times the tv/monitor's screen height for optimal distance.

27' T.V from like 1999. From SNES-Xbox360, this ''LEGENDARY'' artifact has been through the trenches. We have spilled the same blood, in the same mud. This gen may be our last ride tho. Already can't play certain 360 games due to it being non-HD T.V.

We'll always have memories my friend, always...

I wouldn't go lower than 26" even for a small bedroom. 26-27" is my preferred size for gaming.

20inch lcd? it will look better then most bigger tv's cuz most games run at 720p. The bigger the tv, the more a picture is blown up and looks way more jaggy. That said... 32 inch is great for bedroom.

eah most iditos complaing about jaggies probably due to such big screens.

I game on a 22inch and is fine. is on desk in front of me.

In my opinion gaming in my 22inch is superior to my friends 40inch tv.

I think mine's a 19 inch screen. I got it in christmas 09 after the tv I was using started having problems with it. Before I got it for Christmas though, I had to use a little 13 inch tube tv from the 1980's to temporarily replace the one that was broken. I remember playing Resident Evil 5 on that! I didn't notice any jaggies at all!
