No idea what you're trying to say there, about the text... I can see everything fine on my 47" TV, it's not large or small, plus you can easily change all the options anyways.
Strictly for gaming, monitors are better, especially in fast paced games (e.g. Guitar Hero). I badly need to use my 24" because the lag is like half a note off on the 47"... Tried to rectify it with the in-game lag thing but it was a load of crap (The dragon force songs were a nightmare!).
well yeah i put it a bit messy way. what i meant, that you shouldnt be playing with 46" or 47" as close as you'd play with normal 24"
the picture would be optimal for 46" if you'd be looking that around 3-3.5meters away from it -> if you'd do that -> you wouldnt prolly see the text correctly / easily
