Pretty simple - I'm looking to get a second monitor to extend my desktop for graphics work. I'm thinking... if I'm gonna spend the money on a monitor (probably 22"+) i would like to be able to use it as a television as well. So, the question is: What are the plusses and minuses to using an LCD Television as an external computer monitor? and how does that compare to the plusses and minuses of using an LCD Computer Monitor as a television. I'm most concerned with issues of functionality and ease for both uses, picture quality/clarity (as it relates to resolution and brightness). Thanks, in advance, for all your help.
