iunno, i'm just guessing, it would probably be a strain on your eyes. up close and focusing on such a big monitor.

no because the resolution of a TV is alot lower than one of a monitor thus the quality will be very much less than your traditional computer screen

I'm guessing if you wanted a TV as a Monitor, you would want like a 30"-37" and a big desk, because you dont want it so close, plus it would have to be 1080p for full HD, which is what a computer monitor is I think.
