i use my samsung 32" tv as my monitor. The only problems i have with it is playing FPS and sitting close up. I'm running mine in 720p and all the text is readable. I dont know if i could go back to a normal monitor now

Definitely go with the TV if your going to stick it high up on the wall.

Damn a 32 inch 1920 x 1080. Where were all these TV's when I was looking 6 months ago!!

Uhm guys, you can get lots of 32" in 1920x1080, it's called 1080P.

What are you arguing about that for? All the ones I listed were 32" and 1080P.

A 32" Samsung LCD, 1080P, has a 120 hz refresh rate (it's the series 6).

Now can we get back on topic to my original post. 4 pages and no help whatsoever.

I was asking for a monitor for myself, had nothing to do with you, don't be mad we weren't arguing.

I'm not, but make your own thread to discuss this? Four pages and you've been of absolutely no help. I mean even saying 32" don't come in 1080p, did you even read my original post?

I'm not mad, just not in the mood for blatant stupidity today.

honestly, a 32" 1080p is a waste of money. unless you sit really close to it you wont notice the difference with such a small panel. if you are sitting that close then its horribly bad for your eyes anyway.

im not doggin 32" 720p tvs because i have a 32" samsung as secondary monitor for movies and such.

back on topic:
i dont know how long you could go with using a tv as a monitor because of its lower resolutions. its kind of a strain on the eyes especially if you are doing any type of work involving spreadsheets or word i would think.

i currently use a 20" Dell Ultrasharp as primary monitor for work and TV as media so that is a suggestion.

No, you can't get a killer 28" monitor for cheaper. Name me one, ONE, 24-28" LCD monitor for under 800$ that is IPS, doesn't have a wide gamut, has no ghosting issues, has deep blacks and white whites, has a coax input for secondary TV use, has HDMI (3-4 like the TV's), etc etc. If you can, I'd buy it provided it is good quality and top brand w/good warranty. I am very unwilling to pay over 850$ for a PC monitor, it'd better be perfect and there isn't one that I can find that exists in the US.

Best Buy had a 28" Hannspree hooked up to TV, it was by far the worst quality I have ever seen.
Not true.
Ive been using my 42 Panasonic plasma for a year and zero burn in.
