    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.

    had I recognized it as xkcd it would have been declined.

    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.
