Default 30" Monitor?!

I have noticed that Dell has announced a 30" monitor, and some people just thinking about use it for gaming:
30" monitor - Toon Zone Forum
Well personally I do think that too expensive for me, with that budget I can get a tv.

The difference is that a 30 inch "monitor" gives you a MUCH higher resolution than a tv. A tv is only going to give you AT BEST 1920x1080 while the 30" monitor gives 2500x1600 (cant remember exact) resolution.

As a gamer, gigantic monitors serve me little purpose...but to each his own I suppose...you'd have to be doing some serious media managing to want a monitor that big though...

Once you have played on a 24" monitor...you cant go back. I love it.
