We tried a Sharp Aquos TV for a project a couple of years ago, and it 
was a no-go. The big difference between TVs and "professional displays" 
is the range of inputs they can handle; TVs tend to be very limited in 
what they can handle, and the Sharp definitely was--for the most part, 
if it wasn't an AV format (eg, 480i, 720p, 1080p, etc), it wouldn't show 
anything at all. The Samsung 52" LCDs we ended up buying have been 
plenty robust, as have the NEC and Mitsubishi professional displays we 
use in our classrooms.

The Aquos is now in service as one of our message board displays, 
showing a 1024x768 image (stretched to 16x9), and it seems to handle 
that just fine.
