  1. It should. Tell me what you intend to connect the TV with. Your PC with VGA, DVI, HDMI? Looking at the Vizio website it says the TV could only support VGA. Try to use HDMI or DVi-toHDMI if possible, otherwise good luck watching HD content without HDCP compatability. The reason people don't use TVs as monitors is because though cheaper they have very low res compared to minitors of similat size because they aren't designed to be viewed up close as a monitor is.

    im looking to connect it with HDMI if possible im really considering buying this HDTV if it should perform well
  3. Are you connecting it with the motherboard HDMI, or one from a graphics card?

  5. Best answer
    It should work, since Walmart went on a limb to say HDMI supports HDCP, which is technology intended to block piracy on the PC-monitor link, it will work.

    Can't tell you about the 720p model, but the 1080p's are great, unless you intend to use this strictly as a game player i'd get the 1080p model or even if you are not
