By default TVs clip 20 or 30 pixels from the edge of whatever they're showing and scale the rest up to fit. This a is a legacy from the CRT era. Since the edge of the image was typically hidden behind bezels broadcasters used that bit of the signal to transmit metadata instead (ex close captioning). It remains today in our digital world because just as Joe Sixpack will think louder speakers sound better, the TV that makes the characters in the movie the boxmart is looping on all its screens looks better.
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, waging all things in the balance of reason? Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful? --Zachris Topelius

Correct, I found out about that one a while ago. You can usually improve the picture because most modern flat screen TV's have an option to switch this off. By default they all do it but it can be disabled. If there is a manual it is somewhere in there but usually obscure.
I've got a 40" Samsung telly, a 22" Samsung (pc) monitor and 26" Teac telly that I use for computer use. I've found the colour to be different, though no more different than any other comparison between pc monitors I've had in the past. Since they're all 1920x1080, and the size is different, the pixel size is different - but that's just common-sense. So too is the fact you can sit further away from the larger screens and still be able to read them.
The benefits for me are of the Teac telly over the Samsung pc monitor are: (a) The cost - last year the telly was $259, the pc monitor (4 years ago) was $250. (b) it records telly whereas the tv tuner in the pc wouldn't cope with the interference the pc introduced. (c) it contains speakers, which helps keep the desk clean (d) Inputs: it has 3 hdmi, 2 A/V, USB, 2 YPBPR, 1 SVGA d-sub (e) I leave Raspberry Pi, Desktop, PS3 connected all the time. I plug the laptop into the other HDMI input as required.
The disadvantages: (a) viewing angle - viewing from below the screen gives a much poorer picture than CRT, my laptop and my Samsung pc monitor, though my Samsung telly has an excellent viewing angle left/right, above/below. (b) The stand is fixed - I cant tilt the screen up, down, left or right. (c) no auto-on feature - must use button on telly or remote control.
I think you'd find that most of these differences are attributable to the models of each - not to the question of TV vs PC monitor. The Teac was cheap and cheerful, but I'm continually surprised at how much I appreciate it instead of another same-size pc monitor.
HI guys , need to discuss approach for starting a new project. our new project is something big application kind of enterprise application and may be multi database. just wanted to know which approach will be better for such application where we have lot of interconnected modules / reports / emails / invoices / (heavy data in future) / file management etc. classic asp.net or MVC. i am familiar with asp.net application and it will be easy for me at some level. MVC is good but i am not sure as have not worked on MVC. so which is the best practice for such projects.
please add pros and cons of both? and if this is not a proper forum to ask this question move it to relevant ?
