I've used my Samsung TV as my PC monitor for a couple months and frankly I think I've screwed the thing up now since it flickers and has these weird lines when full screen HDMI. Clearly it just wasn't up for being a PC monitor but I've learned from my mistake and am looking into getting an omen one.

Omen HP 32 inch gaming monitor with AMD freesynch 2560 x 1440 pixel quad HD 5ms 75 hz and of course, black.
Is the omen line a good way to go? Does it have a good reputation? It's on sale right now.

I don't think using a TV as a PC monitor would effect it like you described, suggesting you contact Samsung's support. (also, have you tried a different cable/port?)

General rule of thumb dealing with support teams: don't ever suggest that you did something wrong or give them a reason to fault you.

Rather than saying "I've damaged the display by using it on my PC." you should be saying "Over the last month my Samsung TV had been having problems while connected to any HDMI source."

I'm pretty much certain it's something I've done. I'd have overloaded the LCD or something. Here's a picture of the lines in effect

Sorry for bumping, could I get opinions on the omen please? Would that be enough for my computer?

I can't vouch for that specific model, but we had the G-Sync, 165Hz model on display at the Wal-Mart I worked at. It was pretty nice, but had an obnoxious red LED on the bottom of the monitor lighting up the "Omen" logo on the stand.

I imagine some black tape would fix that.
