    imho

    If you want a display to be used as a monitor for your computer, buy a monitor. Do not buy a TV.

    A TV should not be in your considerations for a computer display unless you require the display do double duty as a TV. If this is a part of your requirements for getting another display, then it doesn't really matter how good or how poor it is when comparing a TV to a monitor.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

    I dont need a tv, i have a 50" plasma already, I just wanted a led screen like the new apples, with out paying the apple price. So i was just thinking about the tv as an option. The led part is what is drawing me in. I want the quality.

    LED has zero to do with quality where hooking it up to a computer for photo editing is concerned. It's not made for that, and you'll be doing yourself a great injustice. Let's start here: What is your budget ?
