Acer 32" good for flight simming?

Im looking up this monitor for a new game Im getting, since Im also upgrading my GPU so I utilize a larger monitor.

Im currently on a 28" Hanns-G and it seems to do the job fine, but Im wondering for a small investment if I should be getting a larger 32".

Larger monitors come in handy for flight simmers with single monitor setups, as they do not have as much trouble reading the gauges in flight (I.E. squinting, moving your head closer to the monitor to read the guages, etc.)

It will really come in handy when Im flight simulating in Battle of Britain:Cliffs of Dover

Ive heard bad things about low-dollar large monitors, but simply put, I can not afford $1300 for a "good" 30"+ monitor.

My Hanns-G was inexpensive for a 28" at the time of purchase and I have no complaints, and im not nit-picky as I guess people who know alot about what makes a good monitor, I just figured bigger equals better.

Ok one last question, Is this a real monitor with smaller pixels or a TV screen with larger, less detail oriented pixels?

That will probably be the main factor in purchasing it.

It's a good monitor overall; though normally people look for larger resolution monitors when considering something over 24"

Still; there are a few complaints to be had about it; being a TV it doesn't have as sharp a picture as some of the 22-24" MVA monitors at that resolution. The built in speakers are really not all that grand; though they're not terrible as the built in controls don't let you over drive them.

If your current Hanns-G is 28"/1080p there is no REAL reason to get another 4" of panel at the same resolution.

You may be better off saving money for something like a Dell U2711 or Apple Cinema Display 27"
