Need to replace my 22" monitor. I'd be using it for everything: cable TV, console gaming, PC gaming, Netflix, Youtube, browsing, etc

Anyone with a setup like this?

I have my PC hooked up to my monitor and my TV. In all honesty I can tell the input lag produced by the TV, however I do use it for games that I want to play on the big screen from my couch with a controller and it works fine.

Exactly this for me. I usually play games on my monitor, but when I just feel like being lazy, I'll lean back in the recliner, and play on the tv. It's nice to have the option. I notice a bit of lag, but it's usually not a game breaker for me.

I use my 60 inch for gaming a lot, for games that use a controller.

Use my plasma tv all the time. No lag. It's nice to have a monitor for some things though.

Even with word processing and similar applications? Cause it's going to be my primary and only monitor which will be used for everything

Pretty much what everyone has said. For my desktop, I have a dual monitor set up that I use. But sometimes I want to kick back so I'll hook up my laptop (which is decent for playing games) up to my TV and play games with a controller. I haven't really run into any issues. There may be slight input lag, but nothing that will make games unplayable.

It's fine for media, but it might not be so practical for browsing and other computing. You'll have to sit 4-5 feet away otherwise it's going to really strain your eyes.

Are you going to be sitting right in front of it like a normal desktop scenario or are you typically going to be on your couch or a few feet away? The reason I ask is because the farther away from the screen you are the harder it will be to read text even on a large screen.

Desktop scenario, 3-4 feet away
