Hey guys...! (Long time-reader, but never decided to take the plunge... Nice to meet you )

We re doing some workshops for Photo editing and general photography (our budget is around $600), and we are torn between buying

Projector (like the BenQ W1050)
or
49" Computer Display (like the Acer EB490QK)
or
60" TV (like the LG 60UK6200)

We could spend another $150 on a calibrator, but we can't make a guess what type of display would work for such an application...?

Any opinions?

Thanks!!!

You can color calibrate any display plugged into a computer.  Even a cheap TV will be improved by this.

Where a TV may let you down compared to a quality PC monitor is in things like screen uniformity (dark/light areas), black levels, color gamut, etc.

While a TV may not be a great solution for color critical work, a simple calibration will at least assure that blues are not light purple and things like that.
