Wanted to buy large screen display for cheap and affordable and didn't find anything then this for $195.
Can you explain what kind of problems I will have and do you recommend enything better than this for same price?
Will 1080 TV do same job?
Thanks.

Sorry, bad link "Code 404".
Any large flat screen monitor or TV with DVI or HDMI input would work well for viewing blueprints.
But best if resolution is .28 or lower DPI.
You might find a bargain at a shopper's club, a display model. Usually discounted nicely. Yet full 'new' warranty.

Thanks, why Large Format Monitor is better than TV ?

The primary difference is the angle of viewing.. either a wide field of view, or narrow. Most LCD sets have the display pixels set back from the front panel, in a sort of short "tunnel". LEDs or CCFL tubes light the panel from the edges. The ideal viewing angle may be 20° or so. The large format type use shorter pixel 'tunnels', giving a larger field of view, maybe up to 100°. No need for panel edge lighting, as the panel is illuminated from behind.
LFD monitors are ideal for large audiences, and are even used with billboard displays.

Hi guyz,

I'm looking to set up a customer of mine with some 32-forty" displays for viewing blueprints.

they may all be using HDMI to connect with the display, I'm just wondering if I have to purpose for something 1920 x 1080 or better?

The objective is so that it will see the complete blueprint while being easy to study. I simply did a contrast of my 40" television with my 22" screen (each 1920 x 1080) and it is a little bit larger searching on the tv, but now not substantially.

The higher the resolution, the better, concerning blueprints and schematics. That "fine print" issue.
Modern LED and OLED monitors are higher in resolution than only a few years back. You might consider a 'zoom' feature in the video display, if coming from a laptop or computer to the monitor.
