    I found this post very informative. But are there not reasons that LCD’s suck?

    The problem with reposting XKCD is you get rid of the alt text.

    The problem is reposting XKCD is that it sucks. Look at this crap: having a 15″ monitor with 1080p is completely different that having a 48″ TV. Randall is like an old person who get RAM confused with harddrive memory.

    Precisely.

    I believe he’s talking about 24″ to 30″ LCD monitors with 1920×1200 resolution. I have a 24″ 1920×1200, and it kicks the effing ass of 99% of HDTVs… and it’s several years old. Computer monitors are ALWAYS ahead of TVs technologically speaking. Current high-res monitors are 2560×1600, and cost less than most 40″ 1080p LCD TVs.

    24″ monitor < 40" LCD TV. That's why the TV costs more; that's why its a notable technology. Don't pretend that the *ACTUAL SIZE* is less important that the resolution.

    But if you sit at a certain distance isnt the screen proportionally as big in your area of sight? that makes computer monitors better bcuz they have more pixels

    No, putting an iPhone 6 inches away from your face isn’t the same as an IMAX screen. A TV also has an inherent advantage of being able to have more than one person watch it at a time. Who would want to watch sports with your friends on a 24″ monitor?

    I can easily sit 2 or 3 people around my 24″ monitor, and it still kicks the ass of an HDTV. To a degree, resolution IS more important than size. You DO sit closer to a monitor, so it fills more of your field of vision. You clearly know nothing of visual studies of TVs and monitors.

    Just go with a 30 inch computer monitor or close to it.
