Is the nicest television a computer ?

I heard that some people have taken a computer monitor and converted it to work as a T.V.
Could I take a big old computer monitor and make a great T.V. ? or forget about it .

I did that to make room for stereo equipment. I don't watch a lot of tv, so I have a LG 19" computer monitor for TV (a Linn Classik for sound....).

Yes, it works, but it's a very small picture.
I think its BS but I like my Projector anyway so what do I care?
No, the nicest television isn't a computer.

No, but the nicest computer is a television.

Buy one (or more) of the latest generation 1080p screens and use it for both.

When used in conjunction with a high end audio system, you will be very happy.
Some of the nicest picture quality I have seen is not necessarily a computer monitor, but instead, a video monitor designed to accept any kind of video feed, one that is not even classified as a "TV" because it does not have a tuner. They use some really nice monitors at the local NBC studio where I am a service provider. But of course, one would expect that from a TV studio.
Thank you all .

Eric , This monitor business sounds intriguing .
I have a JVC D-500 It's v,Good but I'd like to make something that would be better, that I could just, keep .
Could the monitor be converted to use a '' Tuner " . would the picture quality stay as good ? just thought I'd ask .

All you would need to do is feed a tuners output to one of the monitors video inputs, whether that be dvi, hdmi, component, or otherwise. I imagine the picture quality would depend on both tuner quality and monitor quality.

Another place where I have seen some rather impressive PQ is at the local Apple Store where they have an Apple TV showcased with a 50 inch monitor. Just a thought.
That sound very interesting
I would not won't anything bigger the about 27''

should I post a Q about monitors '' which is best'' for the value ?
