I've been using a 30 inch Vizio 1080p TV for about five years now as my monitor of choice. It works very well and it's still a suitable size for reading. My main problem is that it probably isn't very power efficient. Other than that, I edit video, use Photoshop, watch things, and play stuff with no problem at all. Any larger than 30 inches and I wouldn't recommend it. At least, not at a desk, anyway.
