    TVs are intended for viewing from further away than monitors. Although you can use a TV as a monitor but I wouldn't recommend it to you for any length of time. I use my TV as the monitor for my mac mini, but only when watching videos, in all other situations I use screen sharing from my mbp instead to interact with the mini.

    nonsense. Televisions are perfectly capable monitors. especially the xbrs which have a plethora of color settings in order to have almost perfect accuracy.

    OP: i myself have a 52xbr4 and it is fantastic...razor sharp. just make sure you tweak the settings according to your needs.

    At a 1080p 1980x1080 in full pixel mode it should be exactly the same as a computer monitor in every way except size.

    Do I have that wrong? :confused:

    Not exactly a monitor resolution is not 1080p, but support it. It's 1920 by 1200 (16:10 not 16:9 except the dell 2409w) and the resolution of a 32" inch tv is exactly the same than a 24" monitor. In this case, you increase your pixel size.
