Are there any appropriate applications for consumer displays in your experience? Why or why not?
One of the most appropriate uses of consumer displays is a live TV wall displaying the televisions for sale, which are commonly found in a mass-merchant or large discount retailer.
There are occasions where a consumer-like TV works within an experience, like part of a living room or home environment. Ideally, those applications are best served by using commercial-grade displays that give the same look at a television, but are designed to run retail hours.
While commercial-grade displays can be far more expensive than a consumer display, the picture is almost always superior, and they will last much longer.
