yes other than plasma, a tv with good blacklevels and detail-in-blacks that is LCD is a VA type lcd, which is bad for gaming. TV's also have scalers which introduce additional input lag (though many monitors have scalers too if you don't purposefully avoid them). The perceived ppi at distance comes into play. A 27" 1080p or 2560x at "normal" desk viewing distances is preferable to me, or as part of a LLL eyefinity with the side panels for immersion. Any monitor much over 30" at a desk is eye-bending to the periphery too - which is different from LLL eyefinity where the side panels are mostly peripheral by design. I don't like those centric bars in PPP eyefinity at all, and the pic I posted shows good reasons to choose a differently in regard to games. Using a LCD TV is a poor choice and not even an option as far as I'm concerned. To each his own though. Its discussed in plenty of other threads.
