Help me fix an intermittent monitor fault

My husband and I bought two monitors a little over 12 months ago. They worked just fine for 6 months when his developed an intermittent fault. Essentially, the screen abruptly goes static-y and weird, and horrible noise comes out the speakers - I guess it should be described as interference. None of the controls work and it has to be powered down and back on again. Two months after his started going wrong, mine did too - exactly the same way. [more inside]

What kind of computer or tv monitor is this?

I need to rephotograph some stuff off a computer monitor and I love the texture of the screens in this clip from Moneyball, especially in the extreme close ups and player head shots. The visible honeycomb of pixels is what I'm interested in. I've shot stuff off a Cinema Display (no visible pixels really) and broadcast monitor (visible but rectangular) before and it doesn't look like this. Any idea what kind of monitor or LCD looks like this?

Should I use a TV as a monitor?

I am planning on purchasing a new, larger monitor to connect to my 13" 2011 MacBook Pro. I'd like to consider the possibility of using a TV as a monitor, so I can possibly get a larger sized screen. However, I've never purchased a TV, only using someone else's old school hand-me-downs, so I know nothing about them. Looking for advice. [more inside]
