its better then spending hundreds of dollars on a TV

No, it is not better than spending for a new t.v. You'll be limited to over-the-air digital broadcast (limited channels), analog cable (not HD), and unencrypted digital (Clear QAM - limited channels) via your cable provider. If you are needing a way in which to import videos from another analog source (or digital source AVerMedia MPD USA - PCTV tuner card - HDTV tuners - ClearQAM - TV Tuner Card - AVerTV HD DVR), then I'd suggest a tuner with aux inputs.
