    Monitors are very different from TVs. TVs aren't made for close ups, the monitor is the best choice sense the pixels are ver very dense.

    That link is to a monitor not a tv.
    Realistically there is very little difference between a 24" monitor and a 24"tv if they are around the same price.
    If the tv is substantially cheaper then you would have to beware of it having greater input lag.and possibly poorer contrast ratios.

    Yeah, but they are made for being close to, If your going to use it in a living room, or entertainment room, then go with a TV. The monitor is for a desk, and it has very clear images even when close
