That's down to what I mentioned earlier - pixel size - rather larger on
a TV than a monitor, and is a large part of the difference in cost
a 30" monitor and a 30" TV.

Depends what you're doing. My 32" TV isn't full HD so it's 1366x768 or
and so appears a bit clunky with text. But then, I don't try to use it
just for the odd media watching. IMO a 30" screen is too big for
working with anyway
as you have to sit too far back from it. Of course graphics designers
specialised needs find such screens useful, but it's horse for courses.
