    I was wondering to buy an acl 32" 1080p and I was thinking about the image quality vs the monitor quality. Actually, I knew that youre needed to watch it at least 1 feet 'cause your normally watch it from your couch. So what about the eyes reaction on it 'cause the resolution and the image are not both very great and also everyone use it to be watched at least 5 feets. I think to buy a 32" 'cause the 30" monitor price are very very expensive compared to the tv one. I had forgetten to mention that currently I've a 24" 2443bw and the 32" would be my main monitor.

    I planned get this one :

    A 1080P TV with still have the same resolution as a 24" monitor so the picture quality would not even be close to that of a 30" monitor. The only thing you would be gaining is a larger picture.

    In fact, the 24" monitor has a better resolution at 1900x1200, because the 32" TV has a resolution of 1900x1080.

    Only buy the TV if you want to use it primarily as a TV.

    The TV's only advantage is being better at showing TV shows and movies. So 1 of each could be good if you do a lot of video work...

    If you want two good monitors for normal computer usage, stick with 2 monitors :)

    The TV has speakers, which could be a plus point, but only if you need them...
