Here's my situation... I currently have my mac pro (2007) hooked up to a Dell 30" LCD monitor. It looks great, but quite frankly, I want something a little larger and a bit more glossy. I was hoping Apple would release a 30" glossy Cinema Display, but that has yet to happen. (Please no comments on gloss vs. matte. I know the good and bad. I just happen to prefer glossy). I am thinking of going with a 40" LCD television. I would connect it DVD-D to HDMI. Plasma has a better "gloss" factor but I wouldn't dare risk burn-in. Friends are telling me that I will lose valuable resolution with a 40" LCD display. However, I occasionally read stories of people having great success with hooking up their Mac to a large screen TV. Are any of you using an LCD television with your Mac? What do you think? Would I be losing valuable resolution going this route? Finally, if I am considering 40", do I have to look at 1080p displays above $1000? I was hoping to stay within the $1k or less range. Thanks in advance!
