Default Confusion With a Monitor

I was looking at the oveclockers website, looking for a 30" monitor, i saw a couple and obviously people favoured the dell, but then i came accross this weird review about this samsung 30" monitor and it said something like 'i use to use my 40" hdtv 1080p monitor but now that i am using this new monitor the image is clearer'. So i thought, thats wierd shouldnt a hdtv produce clearer picture than a 30" monitor or is there something im missing?

It would be helpfull if someone could give me the Pros and cons of each time of monitor.

Thanks alot, and a quick reply would be great i need a monitor =(

No, your HDTV Monitor only has a resolution of 1080p meaning its true resolution is...

1698 pixels horizontal and 1080 pixels vertical.

With a 30 inch screen its resolution is usually 2560 horizontal and 1600 vertical thus producing a much clearer and sharper image with no blurs.

IMO its this: take a screen resolution of 1280x1024 for instance, and put that on a 40' screen, then put it on a 20' screen, even though the they are both the same resolution, by packing that very same resolution on a smaller screen, you get a sharper image.
