I believe that's the same Vizio model I picked up from Woot to use as a mixed TV/monitor.
It came with a 3 month warranty, and something failed after about 2.5 months, so I spent $30 or so sending it in to be fixed and it has been fine since then (which has been another 6 or 7 months). (mine was through the purrfect refurbs thing though, this sale is Vizio factory refurbs. That's probably better)
It works fine as a monitor. I have it hooked up with a DVI-to-HDMI cable instead of the RGP cable on my primary computer. My resolution is set at 1920x1080. I also have a 2nd computer hooked up with the RGP for the odd occasions when I want to use that one.
Prior to when I got a bigger TV and started using this primarily as a monitor, I was using it as a television and for minor console gaming with the computers also occasionally hooked up when I wanted an extra screen.
As the other person mentioned, it does sit very low if you're going to have it on a desk. I actually just grabbed a thick reference book and stuck it underneath to make the height more comfortable. If you use a monitor riser or you mount yours on the wall, obviously that's really not a problem.
