Default Advice needed: TV/ Computer monitor combo

I've been thinking about buying an LCD TV (possibly Samsung's LN-R3255 32" Widescreen LCD HDTV) to use not only as a second TV, but as my primary computer monitor.

I was hoping to get some advice from anyone who's already doing this (with any LCD TV with PC inputs).

Good move, bad move?
How's the picture when using it as a computer?
Would the wear and tear of using the LCD as a computer monitor, and then as a TV, take a quicker toll on the screen?

Basically, what's been your experience?

Thanks for the help,

I've used an LCD TV as a monitor.
It was quite good, alot better than what I expected.
The picture was good.
It also ran games fine, no ghosting or anything like that.

It was just a 17" one so I don't know how good the picture is in the larger ones.
And not everyone has a 32" monitor.
