    I have been looking to buy a new flat screen TV recently, mostly to watch movies/TV, but I am also thinking it might work well to read digital comics in .cbr format.

    Basically I want something big enough that I can sit 5 or 10 feet away, and not struggle to read the text (while the .cbr program has it display 2 pages at a time).

    I can't really test this out in the stores though.

    Does anyone read .cbr's on a flat screen TV? How does it work out? What TV are you using?

    I mostly read my digital comics (.cbr, .cbz, and the legit purchases) on my ipad, but sometimes I'll read an issue on my 27 inch Samsung TV/Monitor.

    Are they easy to read on the 27 inch monitor? I have a 19 inch monitor right now, and if I put it in 2-page-view, the text is hard to ready sometimes.

    The 2-page spreads are fine to me. Are you using CDisplay or something else to read the cbrs?

    Yeah, like I said, it works fine for me, but I don't spend a lot of time reading comics on that monitor. Plus, since I'm using it as my desktop monitor, I'm just a few feet away when I'm reading. You might want something bigger, if you want to sit 5-10 feet away.

    CDisplay is the best reader for the PC I've ever found. I use it at work or read them on my Kindle Fire
