I don't know if you are familiar with digital fotocameras, but the blowing up of a screen diameter without the resolution going up as well, is the same as using a digital zoom on said camera. The higher the digital zoom, the bigger the picture, but the bigger the picture, the more blurry it becomes.
Now, LCD TV's have all kinds of filters and tricks to try to compensate for the lack in resolution, but somehow those tricks fail when a computer is connected (except for blu-ray movies). Even with a HDMI connection, it doesn't work optimal. With HDMI, playing a game (in the demo it was "NFS - Shift") resulted in whole blocks refreshing too late, instead of ghosting. meaning, for example, the the top half of the screen was 10 to 15 frames further in the game than the bottom half...
I did a lot of checking myself, as I also considered buying an LCD TV, because some of those suckers come in at very low prices (like €599 for a 101cm WS TV, with Full HD and HDMI --see LG, Philips--)
For the moment, I've set my weary eyes on an Acer B273HU 27" monitor (2048x1152 with Full HD and a HDMI connection, which costs around $420, but isn't on the Belgian website, only on the American. I've contacted Acer Belgium to inquire, but they seem on an early holiday. Or they don't care, of course...
The Acer has an incredible price for such a resolution. Once you go to 30" monitors, with resolutions of 2560x1600, we're talking between €1200 and €1800 here, so that's out of the question for yours truly.
All this being said, if you consider buying a new TV, you could still go for it and try it out on the PC just for fun. But when you do buy an LCD TV, check around and buy one that has at least a HDMI connection and is 1080p instead of 1080i (polarized versus interlaced) because the future of digital TV is 'polarized' beams...

Usually, the specs are from grey-to-grey, because the response time is quicker in comparison to from black to white...
also, when I mentioned the 'recommended distance' earlier, that was not for best viewing, but a health recommendation for the eyes. Sitting too close to a TV/Monitor is very tiring for the eyes, as they have to keep on focusing all the time. Hence the fact that heavy PC users (like me) screw-up their eye-sight over a period of 3 to 5 years...
For picture quality, it's like Kougar says: just stick yer nose to the TV-screen in the shop and literally see what it says... or was it hear what it looks like... can't remember. Where's my reading glasses
