Yes
Might not be as clear as a higher en monitor.
I've set up a few with 27' tvs for less than 100 bucks on sale, and people are happy, but also don't spend long continuous hours at them.

Yes, but why would you want to? If you want a big monitor, a smaller 4k tv works well. I'm using a 39" Seiki. Works well for what I need, but I wouldn't play games on it.

Pros:
Little ******* are much bigger
Wow factor

Con:
It costs more money because it uses more energy.

Got a Vizio P50 4k tv as a monitor.

Fantastic!

Super high res. 50" $700.

You'll need a pc that supports the res. though.

I have a 32" HD Vizio as my monitor and it's clear as can be.
