    Default Is there a 1080p 3D TV good enough to use as a monitor?

    I have been using the same Dell FP2001 for almost 8 years. It's a great 1600x1200 monitor. I'd like to get an IPS 27" or 30" monitor but they cost more than I want to spend.

    Since I mostly use the PC for gaming I thought that a 32" 1080p TV would be nice and big and have a few more pixels. If I could watch the random 3D movie or play the occasional game in 3D it might be a cool option.

    I'd still like to be able to read the internet and do emails without it looking like complete crap. I'd also like the monitor to perform without over scan.

    I guess I could always keep the FP2001 on the desk for emails?

    Does anybody have any experience using a TV as a computer monitor? Any advice or suggestion?

    Thank you,
    --Shoki

    Not sure if a 1080p 32 in would work well for gaming. Most have fairly high response times I think. I picked up a 27 inch Samsung from Costco for $309. They are now on sale for $279. I love it. It's not available on line so you have to go to your local store. See my system specs for the model number.

    See post numbers 86 and 87 in this thread: http://forums.pureoverclock.com/show...7029#post97029. These very knowledgable members say that TV's make terrible monitors. I trust their opinions. They haven't steered me wrong yet.

    TV's are not made to the specs that a PC monitor is. That's why larger PC monitors cost more than TV's do. The picture will look bad and you will not like it at all.

    I agree. i'm no expert, but tried my 32" tv as a monitor, and it was crap. the old vga cable gave a better picture quality than the hdmi, but still it couldn't compare to a pc monitor.

    Try to get a line of credit from Deli and buy a 30" I did a couples of months ago to replace my Gateway 30" . You could also by two ultra thin 24" LCDs from Del for under $600.

    Thanks all,

    I guess prices have come down. The Apple 27" is 999 and the Dell U2711 is $999 right now (had it in the cart for $850 last night) so that's pretty reasonable. I understand that 27" and greater panel prices will continue to drop this year.

    Well I ended up buying a

    VIERA® 32" Class DT30 Series
    LED HDTV with 3D

    http://shop.panasonic.com/shop/model/TC-L32DT30

    I bought it at Amazon so if it sucks I have 30-days free return.
    http://www.amazon.com/Panasonic-VIER.../dp/B004MME75G

    $750 32" 1080p IPS Panel with 3D is exactly what I wanted so I'll let you all know how I like it.

    If it doesn't work out I'll probably get a Dell U2711.

    This TV is amazing, big and beautiful. It's not quite as easy to read text on but after some tweaking of the settings it's really close enough. It looks far better than some of the highly recommended TN panels I've tried and returned. You can turn off the over scan so the entire 1920x1080 resolution is usable for the computer over DVI to HDMI.

    Blu-Ray movies look stunning, Games are vibrant, and 3D Playstation3 Games are really immersive. I forgot how beautiful Wipeout HD is and in 3D it's really over the top.

    The cool thing is when I get my new system built I'll be able to use

    Nvidia's 3DTV Play with this set. My 9800 GTX+ won't run it.

    The set came with a nice remote, Wireless Dongle, and one pair of Active Shutter Glasses. I've got it hooked up via ethernet and you can watch video from Netflix, Amazon, Youtube, Hulu Plus, etc. whithout even firing up the PC. It also has a 10 minute power off it it isn't receiving a signal. I thought that was a good feature since most TV's just stay on forever without a signal.

    I think it's a great set at a great price. I'd recommend it to anybody that wants a single large PC monitor for games, 3D games, blu-rays, and 3D movies.

    I don't think I'll be sending it back... but let's see what gets announced during CES.
