Any monitor tips?

I was trying to get a monitor for a computer and noticed you can just use HDMI and a TV.

Is there any advantage or disadvantage to just using TVs instead of the monitors?  Any good tips on buying a monitor?  I saw that Dell has some monitors:

Dell Ultra Sharp Ultra wide 29 inch $700 (2560 x 1080) $700

Dell 27 inch LED (1920 x 1080 max.) in a 16:9 widescreen format.) $310

Also, Amazon has TV's like this one that could plug into a computer:

Samsung UN32EH4003 32-inch 720p 60Hz LED HDTV (Black) $280

http://www.amazon.com/Samsung-UN32EH4003-32-inch-720p-Black/dp/B0078LSTWU/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1365731233&sr=1-1&keywords=television

I'm just doing basic computer work - not gaming or anything crazy.  But I do like a pretty nice display.

Are the Dell monitors good prices or is it best to look elsewhere?

Probably looking @ 27-32 inch screen.
