It depends on the situation. We have a client with 24/7/365 security stations that have commercial displays. We also have clients that use their displays on a 9a to 5p basis that have consumer displays.
I will say this, I have been seeing more Samsung consumer displays failing lately. This has me a little cautious about selling more of them. I've replaced a 50" LED and a 32" LED recently. Both were just over a year old and out of warranty.
Depends on the warranty needs. Read the warranty statement from the manufacturer closely. Usually a consumer grade display used in any commercial or 24/7 environment is instantly warranty invalidated.
We've generally used Viewz and Orion and they've held up pretty well. I think the so-called commercial versions of Samsung, LG, NEC, etc have generally held up well but I think we get more failures from those. But failures less than 3 years are fairly rare.
Walk into almost any sports bar, and if you see a "hazy" area of the display, you can bet they are consumer grade. A local pub replaces theirs every year or two because they are so cheap.
