Hey all, I have been using my 47 inch led LG 3d tv as a monitor for the past 3 months or so. It gets a lot of use as both monitor and tv for movies and shows and such. Is using it as a monitor for gaming and basic pc use bad for it ? I haven't noticed anything bad but wondering if with time it will be bad for the tv? Thanks for any help.

It's all good.

I've been using my tv as a monitor for about 3 1/2 years now, and the only issue I have is that 1080 resolution is slightly outside the 'borders' of the screen, so I end up resizing the desktop to a slightly smaller 1804x1014, but other than that, not a problem.

It should work well. There wouldn't be so many HDTV/monitor combos out there if they didn't.
