    Obviously the LCD televisions can display HD quality, but what about LCD monitors?

    I dunno, maybe a stupid question.

    Umm there are some monitors out there that have component inputs for HD, I don't know if they do display it for sure but my guess is it should (720p at least).

    Once you get a TV tuner, i think you, but im not 100% sure. but i know its possible. Most lcds can support 1280x1024 res while HD tv is merely around 1100x775

    No I think you guys are getting ahead of the question. I don't care to watch television or anything on it.

    I mean is it capable of displaying HD quality. Like when I watch a movie trailer or something in "HD format", is my monitor actually displaying it in HD or not quite.

    Most monitors are capable of at least 720p resolutions, and a few can display true 1090p. As for how you will see video files you are playing, that depends on the file's encoding. Many HD sources are ripped and encoded to non-HD resolutions to lighten file size. Also you will need a video card capable of your target resolution output.

    Most (if not all) of the larger widescreen LCD monitors (20" and above) have 1680x1050 native resolution, with those at 23" and larger having 1920x1200 resolution. I'm unsure why they are 16x10 format rather than 16x9.

    Some also have component input, but that wouldn't be a factor if you were viewing data from your pc. They all have dvi input which by definition is HD compatible.
