I have a 32" LCD HDTV.

I use it for.
TV via DVR.
BluRay playback.
Media Player display.
Computer Display.
DVDs via a DVD Recorder with HDD.

I use its native resolution of 1366 by 768 input via VGA cable and seperate audio cable. That makes the computer display large enough to read from the easy chair.
I use a small wireless keyboard that has a built-in Touchpad, Think laptop size and layout. I can hold it in one hand and type mouse with the other hand.

I find being able to switch from computer to TV while the computer is busy doing video encoding at the push of a remote button handy.

More and more people using the TV set for Computer display all the time

Good Luck
Roger

I have a 32-inch LCD monitor and a 24-inch (I have two desktops).

When I bought the last monitor, I thought seriously of getting an LCD TV instead, looking at prices. I decided against it because I have no need or desire to use the TV for both TV and computer purposes...and I guess that I don't believe that a device which combines both functions can be as reliable as one which is devoted to only one.

And I see no reason for me to combine both functions in one device :).

I'm not an IT person or a "tech" of any sort...just another user who tries to enjoy his systems :).

I have a capture card in one of my systems for capturing movies/sports...so I can do both TV and computing on the computer.

I use approximately the same native resolution as Roger on one, slightly higher on the other. I just go with the default monitor settings and sdjust the video res on the computers.

Great minds think alike.

I run a VE248H as my main and a 32" LG TV at the same 1080p.

My only caution is that if you intend to try viewing a TV at a monitor viewing distance, you might have problems. There is a reason some 30" monitors cost ~$1000. Viewing angles certainly come into play. I have noticed also that text is a bit funky on the TV due to the default sharpening, but movies look so much better on the TV.

I am a retired Ford tech. Next to Fords, any computer is a piece of cake. (The cake, its not a lie)
