LCD Broadcast monitors versus domestic monitors

Hi Walter and everyone

Was reading with interest your comments regarding broadcast monitors - HD LCDs especially.

I need to get a BM for my set up - mac quad into Black Magic Multibridge pro 2 in order to effectively monitor HD sources (as well as SD) and grade occasionally.

Considering the HDMI output from the MB Pro 2 I'm wondering how much more I'm getting by spending 3.5k on a JVC 24" broadcast monitor in comparison with a consumer LCD screen.

I took a look at a Samsung 32" LE32A556P which is 1080p and has a quite dazzlingly good picture, the 40" series 7 version is even more breathtaking. at £569 and £1200 respectively, I'm wondering if I can get away with using one of these monitors or similar to grade.

Apologies if this sounds like a bit of an amateur question, but I wonder if anyone else has considered this and if what practical advice is out there.

Really appreciate your feedback, thanks.
