I use my sharp aquos 15" tv as monitor and the resolution is great for web cams and dvds that im playing in my computer
as for the text i got it setup where i can read 90%
The only drawback to my new LCD TV turned out to be very minor. Because of the way an LCD screen refreshes, sometimes images change faster than the screen can react. This can create some ghosting, or motion lag as it is called.
