I have this television in my living room. I have hooked it up to my computer once or twice to see what it was like. Overall, I hated it. At full resolution (1080p), the mouse would actually lag. I tried several different mice, some wired some wireless. Gaming, non-gaming, optical, blue track, laser. All of them lagged. If i brought the resolution down to about 1600x900ish, or whatever a few notches down was, it worked flawlessly. But then again, I was at a lower resolution. This has been an issue for me on two completely different tv/computer setups in which the mouse lagged at full res.

Never again will I even attempt to do that. It made playing FPS impossible.

That tv uses a TFT panel so should have a low response time, but if anyone has more tv suggestions I'm here to listen.

How about something like this? I can live with having to unhook things if I need to.

There are a few things you might want to do if you use the TV. First is make sure your over/underscan is set correctly. When you put the display on the TV, be sure the edges of the screen match up with the edges of the panel. Second, many TVs use options in the settings to blur and smooth things on the screen. This can make text and borders look terrible in a desktop environment. You'll want to set all those settings as neutral as possible to get clear text and chances are it will never look as nice as it would on a dedicate PC monitor. However, if can be usable and will work just fine.

Yeah I've decided to look into PC monitors with tv tuners so far I'm in between http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=1337071 or http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824001392 the first one seems to be the updated model but thought I would post both here if someone knows which is better from ownership experience.

Have you considered purchasing a TV tuner card and putting it in your PC? The advantage there is you can record TV and such while using whichever monitor you wish.
