OK, I have to admit that I was inaccurate.
It does work in some cases, just not for me.

I do not blame you (or anybody else except the manufacturers)
for this situation; I'm just frustrated.

I do not now about others, but for me, it's simple question of size:
the TV's diameter is about 25 inch. A monitor of the same size costs about 1200 USD. 

I can not afford to buy such a thing in the foreseeable future.
