Hi, I'm looking for the best 32-42" HDTV to use as a monitor for the new 2012 base mac mini (arriving Monday!) I have been looking at samsung led 1080p 32-40" screens. Are there any specifications other than HDMI that I should think about? I keep seeing differing refresh rates, can that be important? I've been reading that it can be difficult to use such a large screen as a computer monitor. What is the optimal size really? 1. I will be sitting 2-4' away from screen depending on what my preference is when using as a computer. 10' away when using as tv. 2. This is for my new computer, I am replacing my 13" Macbook (2006) with a mac mini and need a screen. 3. I will be watching some movies on DVD and some tv through hulu/netflix. 4. The display will always be connected to a mac mini, will be used as a computer monitor as well. I mostly read articles and surf the net. I use MS Office and look at graphs and such. I definitely need the text to be sharp. 5. I will not be using bluray and will not be using cable (at this time, maybe in the future). Simply a computer screen now. 6. I am looking for the best bang for my buck. Would like to spend less than $500 on a 32-40" screen. 7. I do not want 3D. I do not need a smart tv. 8. I can control the lighting in the room. 9. $300-$600 dollar budget. 10. I will sit a couple feet away when at a desk and about 10 feet away when using it as my tv. I have read about problems with the set up concerning the menu on the TV and the display settings on the mac. Any tips on that as well would be great. I am somewhat technically saavy, but generally I like things to just work (hence loving macs). Thank you for your help. I would appreciate a few suggestions for different TVs or things to look for. I am planning on buying through Best Buy so that if I need to return it, I can do that with ease.
