I always hear about how computer monitors are much better than TVs for using computers. I'm just not sure how this is true? If I had a 27 inch 1080p LCD HDTV, would this be significantly different in quality to a 27 inch 1920x1080 LCD monitor? I ask because I'm looking to get a full media set up ready mainly for uni next year. I'm fed up of searching for a monitor with enough inputs for all my devices (HDMI, component etc) and a DVB-T2 tuner. I'd rather not buy a stand alone Freeview+ tuner. So overview: 1 Why are TVs supposedly so much worse? 2 If the res and size is the same will the quality be the same? 3 Any recommendations for TVs or monitors with 2 or more HDMI ports, a component input and Freeview+? (In the UK btw) PS. final question: Is it worth getting a 2560x1440 monitor if I'll be watching a lot of 1080p content or will it look better on a 1080p monitor/tv?
