    HDTV has a high-def TV channel tuner built in, whereas an HD monitor does not. An HD monitor may have a standard definition tuner, but in order to watch "over-the-air" HD broadcasts, you would need to get an external HD tuner. If you have cable or satellite - you're fine with an HD monitor.

    Size, thats about it. I can use my HD tv as a PC monitor so there is no difference.

    Um, well the most significant distinction is that one is a monitor, and another is a TV

    Just make sure that whatever you get has the right inputs for what you are trying to connect to it. Also consider if you need built in speakers.

    also, usually a tv has a tuner, which no body has pointed out yet.

    mostly except one has vga out so you can hook it up to your pc... also refresh rates are a lil better on a monitor compared to television... it depends on what you want it for
