Can I use a TV as a computer monitor?

Episode 962 (1:57:53)

Matt from Cambridge, Ontario, Canada

Matt wants to know what Leo thinks of Haier TVs. Leo says that they're a third tier TV company, budget stuff he'd see at the grocery store. It's low end, but often they use the same panels as the big guys and the quality is lost in the software and menus that they use.

Would it be good for a computer monitor? Leo doesn't usually recommend using TVs for computer monitors. The resolution isn't that good for computer use since he would sit closer to it.
