I would like to get a separate screen just for watching movies. I have a 21" computer monitor that I use for all my computer work, but watching movies on it is less than optimal.  I will be watching movies at my desk so I don't want anything too big (no bigger than 32" at least). The movies will be played on a Blu-ray drive in my PC.

My question:

Is it better to watch Blu-ray movies on a computer monitor, or a dedicated television? If a computer monitor is 1440p (or 2160p, etc) and has to scale to 1080p does it lose any image quality compared to a TV? If so, would it be better to watch a Blu-ray movie on a native 1080p TV?
