Using an LCD monitor and an external tv tuner?

Just wondered what peoples thoughts were on this, looking into getting an LCD monitor and then buying something like this:

(ebay item : 230060361215)

Would this be much of a solution or am i better shelling out more money and getting an all in one LCD-TV?

to be fair a lot of cheap TVs (e.g. my 14" CRT) have only a mono speaker and sound is pretty naff on those too

It has a Lineout, so it would be easy to connect to a cheap speaker set.

I'v got one - works all right, but couldn't get much reception on the indoor aerial connected to it. I'll stick with my plasma for tv.

I've got one of these and its brillant! A won in auction format so got it cheaper and it was better than buying a new lcd tv!

I had to buy a couple of extras like a 2 way switchable scart adaptor and some phono to scart adaptors etc so i could add more but its all working great now!

I've currently got my xbox 360, Freeview box and home theatre sytem running through it, I use my monitor speakers for tv and For dvd's and the xbox 360 i use the home theatre system.

One of the reasons for buying it was so i could record tv (Or attempt!) onto my pc, Haven't tried that at all yet but a great product!, Had it for about 4-5 months now, no problems at all!

Sound through the one speaker isn't very good at all though so i wouldn't rely on that if your buying it, But you can but some speakers or use a 3.5mm to phono lead (i paid about £2.50) to your hi-fi etc.
