Are people replacing TVs with high-quality monitors, now that digital content is becoming really important?
Not really, the monitor is more for personal work and personal entertainment while TV is more for family/group entertainment. The purpose is different thus design philosophy is different. However, the rise in the digital industry has impacted on the growth of sales in a positive area. There is a different set of buyers for both, some major points being, TV has enhanced colours as compared to monitors as LCD has strong colours. Whereas designers/ gamers and photographers, will not design on the TV thus require monitors as they have far better clarity. It is suggested that the buyer must research extensively depending upon the requirement.
