I'm in the market for a new monitor, and i'm considering a 32" 1080p HDTV. Does anyone have any experience with using a TV as their main monitor?

How will text look 1920x1080 over 32" of real estate?

how will text look if i decided to get a 37"?

"It depends". The bigger the screen, the further back you'll have to sit. I would consider a TV as a secondary display for movies/games.
