I got a couple of small veon 22" TVs a while back to use as monitors and also to watch the camera output from the DVR. Full HD, so good as monitors. They were under $180 on one of the many sales that they do on tv's at the warehouse to bring them down to a sane price from their normal high ones.

 

Want to get a couple more to stick up in the garage in the gaps between the joists of upstairs, so a 22" will just fit in the 550ish mm gap between them.

 

Except noone seems to sell them anymore. Plenty of low res 24" ones, warehouse have some 19" low res ones.

 

I guess I could get a monitor and deal with no remote control or analog video inputs but a TV is a much easier option. Anyone seen any of the other retailers with them but not on their website? Because that makes it so easy to buy things.

I was looking for something similar, a 1080p 32" for the bedroom; couple of sony/Samsung at $700 each and the cheap veons where only 720p.  Picked up a 40" 1080p veon for $450 in the end... Not as cheap as I had hoped and a bit bigger but the bezel is small (and sound quality crap) so it doesn't seem so bad.

 

Are there no 24"(ish) monitors with remotes?

A 24" wont fit, but there are some 21.5" full HD ones, which I assume is what a 22" really is for not too much at PB ($160) but will have to go and doublecheck how the plugs come out incase they are straight out the back which an LG I have has for some braindead reason. None with remotes, never seen that on a monitor. Not even sure if they have HDMI and will process audio or are DVI only. Also extrenal power brick vs inbuilt power supply is another consideration.

 

I might just pull the 22's off the workbench mount and put something else there and move them to the garage. But that is tripple the effort.
