I used to peruse Sportspages.com, a veritable cornucopia of sports links, including team sites, national and global newspapers, and the local papers for every team in every major sport. In the past few weeks, I've not been able to connect to the site, and I just wondered if anyone else was a regular, is still a regular (and it's just me having issues), or knows that happened to the site.
(also, sportsgoons.com - it just kinda stopped updating a long time ago, hilarious site)
This article is about 3 years old it looks like, but it should cover most of the areas you are looking at. http://arstechnica.com/guide/flatpanel/flatpanels-1.html As for individual monitors, I'm not sure where to look for info on these.
