I checked out the LG E5300 on Amazon.com

I am just not entirely sure if this would meet me criteria. I really should do some research on monitors/tv's prior to buying them. I bought the Hanns-G by going by my gut and was not disappointed at all since I started with a 22" but the Hanns-G only made me greedier for an even larger monitor, and now that I got a brand new ATI 6970 GPU, I want to see me get my moneys worth out of the new GPU.
Ill probably ask my brother, he knows a lot more about monitors and tv's than me, Ill have him go over this thread.
Well like I've mentioned above, if you buy a 32"+ display that is meant to be a television (which they all are) then of course the text won't be nearly as crisp as a computer monitor. Imagine a 5x7 photo being blown up to twice the size or more, certain things would be slightly blurry or not as crisp as the original.
I can read text on my plasma OK, but it's not nearly the same quality as on my 25". With that said, movies and games look fantastic on it. I would just never use it for regular computer use or internet browsing (aside from watching youtube, which I do).
edit: try bringing a laptop to Worst Buy or walmart, and ninja-ing it to a TV on display to test for yourself. They may even help you do it. Although that may not be the best option, as few laptops support 1080p displays :-\\Edited by Backfat - 4/24/11 at 6:19pm
