To me, 1080p is too much detail. When I watch movies and shows on 1080p TVs, everything LOOKS like a soundstage, and every little wiggle in the camera movement becomes obvious. Tracking shots are ruined by 1080p, because you can ALWAYS see a little jiggle. And the images are so crisp, it no longer looks like a world into which you're transported, but rather like a bunch of actors standing under bright lights being filmed.
You have just described the "Soap Opera" effect of the new LED LCD TVs. There are some brands with a setting to reduce the Soap Opera effect, but it is a problem of the Display tech, not the resolution. I have a 1080p Panasonic Plasma and it suffers none of the issues you ranted about because Plasma is a superior display technology. It's only drawback is that LEDs are "sexier" and use less electricity. That's it. Some people claim plasmas are difficult to see in bright light, but I have not noticed that with mine.

Dumb question, but gotta ask.
Is there any issue with using one of these (39") as a monitor for my computer? Would I need a special video card or should it simply work withe what I currently have?
