HD TV vs Computer Monitor
So I'm looking to upgrade from my current 24" Samsung monitor to a bigger 27".
I've basically decided to buy the Asus VE278Q. It has great reviews, is 27", is LED, has plenty of inputs, has picture in picture, all for sub $300.
Now my question is, this monitor is only 1080p (1920x1080), so why is it that this costs more than some 32"+ inch HDTV's?
Would I be missing out on anything if I just went out and bought a 27" HDTV?
Most likely reason would be the 2ms GTG response time. Plus you are getting quality Asus hardware. TV panels will not have that kind of response time.
Personally, from a computer monitor standpoint, there is no reason to increase the screen size, unless you are spending the money to also increase the resolution. The exception would be for those with poor vision that simply need the larger dpi.
Computer screens are about resolution. Going from 24", to 27" or 32" has no real point when all of the screens are the same resolution (ie: in this case 1920x1080).

Ok, thanks for the help Dogg.
I'm actually using this for school work. I take all my notes on lenovo laptop/tablet (x220t). When I'm studying at home I usually have 2 window open side by side.
So, for me, resolution is not a problem. Its all about having a large enough screen so that I can easily read my notes without having to sit very close to the monitor.

Also, monitors have a better pixel pitch as well. The lower the number, the better the quality, and clarity. That translates to less eye strain.
Better to have it and not need it, then need it and not have it.

Have you considered a monitor that pivots between landscape and portrait?
I hook up my laptop to my HDTV all the time. Great for movies. Not so great for text. It has to do with pixel density per square inch and viewing distance. Stick with a computer monitor.
