    Hello :D new here normally use other forums :(

    well im going to be gettig a new tv for my room and putting it on the wall above my desk and hooking it up to my computer but im stuck between what one i should get theres so many haha

    anyways these are three options which i have come to, feel free to give me more but these r best imo.

    Samsung UE32D6100 32-inch Widescreen Full HD 1080p 3D: Amazon.co.uk: Electronics
    (reading alot that 3D is not full HD so duno if worth spending the extra)

    Samsung UE32D5520 32-inch Widescreen Full HD 1080p: Amazon.co.uk: Electronics

    LG 32LV550T 32-inch Widescreen Full HD 1080p 100Hz LED: Amazon.co.uk: Electronics

    Certain types of Panels are better suited for use as a monitor, i.e. text legibility, etc.

    I think (not 100% sure) that S-IPS Panels are best suited. S-IPS Panels are made by LG.

    becasue i will be using it for TV also but i will also be using it to connect my pc up to it. i like the big screens as im a programmer and designer and prefer big real estate.

    I know quite a few programmers and designers and they use PC screens or Apple screens :confused:

    Hi.
    Really would be better to get a proper monitor. For developing, you'd normally want a lot of useful real estate to read text from. In that respect, all those TVs are no better than my 15" laptop panel (1920x1200)!
    Consider the HP ZR30w for example; only 30", but a fairly impressive 2560x1600. Plus is has a proper adjustable desk stand (swivel, tilt and height). Plug a USB DVB-T tuner into your PC if you wish to watch television on it.
    Remember, a TV will be designed for you to sit between 2 and 3 times the vertical height away from it. Are you going to be sitting ~1.3m away from it?
