    I'm currently looking at Syntax, Sharp, and Sceptre....

    I'm concerned because most TVs have a high dpi, like .50-.55mm. Generally a good computer monitor is more like .24 dpi...

    How would the computer image look on such a large screen with high dpi? Just wondering...

    Would it be sufficient for graphics work too?

    Thanks...

    The high density of pixels can give an excellent computer graphics image, but you have to be aware that the electronics may be insufficient to give you that level of sharpness and also the electronics might not accept the scan rate (768p for XGA, 600p for SVGA) you choose on the computer.

    What about those dual purpose LCD displays that are advertised as TV/computer monitors with .50 mm dpi?

    Most common LCD TVs don't have the resolution to make a good computer monitor. It'd make an excellent monitor for the visually impaired, but other than that, i wouldn't recommend it solely because the pixels would be huge. XGA (1024x768) is comfortable on a 14" LCD monitor, not a 30" one.
